Season Three

Yes, it's official.

HBO has ordered a third season of GAME OF THRONES.

Like the first two seasons, it will be ten episodes long. This one will cover (roughly) the first half or thereabouts of A STORM OF SWORDS, the third novel in the series.

I'll be writing the seventh episode, with the working title "Autumn Storms."

Full details can be found at a dozen other places on the web, so I won't rehash 'em here. Just wanted to pass along the news to my faithful readers.

We had a grab event tonight at the Bloomsbury Theatre. Now I'm tired. night, all.

Dear Mr. George R.R. Martin,

My name is Jo Maia, I'm from Brazil and I would like to congratulate you on your amazing and wonderful work. It was a long time that I did not read books so exciting and now my nights are filled with adventures.

I watched the first season and just loved it. But the season two is making me a little sad regarding the sex scenes. I'm no puritan (far from it), but I believe that the scenes from the brothel are graceless. They are completely unnecessary and displaced. Your books have so much to tell!
Could you please ask to the director/producer to reduce these scenes and fill the tv show with your stories??

Thanks for reading =)

the scenes from the brothel
Same here…

Unfortunately that’s the way the business go. The great majority of routine decision makers truly believe that (only) sex can sell goods. A pity though for that is why there is no room remaining for quite better stuff from the true source.

I find it really funny that the sex scenes disturb so many people. Nobody cares if the screen shows someone having his throat cut or his bowels spilled on the floor; it is fine for us to watch children slaughtered and skulls crushed. However, god forbid someone has sex on a brothel.

The book has a LOT more sex scenes than what the tv shows, and more explicit. But most of it is mentioned as hapenning in the background of the dialogue or main event of the scene, so people can ignore it. It is harder to ignore when it is happening in the background of your screen, though... nevertheless, it is far from being "unnecessary and displaced" (or misplaced).

It reminds me of last season, when a lot of people were angry because they killed the wolf (off-screen), and nobody was upset that they cut down the butcher's boy and his bloody corpse was shown.

People have some twisted moral principles, I think.

"People have some twisted moral principles, I think."

This should be the quote of our generation.

Un-needed scenes
I'm no prude either but adding un-needed sex scenes and ridiculus non-period plunging neck lines is diminishing the serias.

I'm happy to consume such fair in Spartcus Blood and Whatever (the ultimate guilty pleasure) but Song of Ice and Fire doesn't need this stuff nor does it match the tone of the books.

More battles less sex...
