Breaking Records

HBO's GAME OF THRONES continues to build.

Sunday's episode recorded our strongest ratings to date, breaking the record set the previous week, which broke the record set the week before that, which...



Let us hope the trend continues this Sunday with my own episode, AUTUMN STORMS... er, CHAINS... no, THE BEAR AND THE MAIDEN FAIR. Yeah, that's the ticket!

I love when u write an episode just to have a week of peace on the message boards instead of brutal arguing between book "purists" and everyone else. And the two you've done so far have been great, especially The Pointy End.

I don't mind literary arguments, so long as they remain polite.

In fact, I rather enjoy them.

This is a random change of subject, but I know you are a big Gmen fan, and I grew up on Pamrapo Court in Jersey, which I believe is near your roots, and I was wondering if you are also a Knicks fan. Because I'm watching them now and getting real frustrated.

Not really. Never had much interest in basketball.

In this case, I do have a question for you, Mr Martin.
Regarding Robb Stark marriage with Talisa. How necessary you thought this change was?
I mean, I can understand the reasons of why marry Jeyne Westerling. She was the oldest daughter of an old House, that although poor, well respected and descended directly from the First Men. Also, Catelyn wasn't there to put any sense on her son about marrying her and break the alliance with the Frey.

While Talisa, well, she was a foreign, and while she WAS a noble, she is now just a little better than a peasant, regarding social status and she brings no army with the marriage, no matter how small. Also, Catelyn was there on the same camp with him, there are no witness to the marriage, save the septon and the marriage was a southron one, and not performed before a weirwood.
I mean, in this case, Robb Stark could lose not only his Frey allies but also his own followers.
Sorry, but that was the moment, for me where the show jumped the shark, and now, I just patiently wait for the remaining of your books.
Thank you for your time and sorry for the long rant.

Edit: For some reason my reply as linked to your comment about basketball and not about literary discussion. Strange...
