    On the whole, they've been "adjusting" the books to fit the TV show more and more past the first season. Cutting stuff out, moving stuff around, consolidating things. It's both necessary given the vast amount of material to be covered in a limited TV season, and good considering how...shapeless the books increasingly become. Books 4 & 5 in particular are a structural mess, because of Martin's meandering and because of the way they were written and published (conceived as a single book that meandered out of control, and divided in a way that, in retrospect, probably didn't help). I still enjoy the books, but I suspect as the series progresses the show will in some ways become an improvement over the books, especially in terms of structure and focus.

    Was flipping channels over the weekend and came upon the intro music to one of the episodes. My mind could only hear the South Park version from a few weeks ago. It was awesome. :)

    Damn it. I knew I should not have watched the trailer. Now my life will be a living hell of waiting until April.

    ok. I'm off to listen to the theme song again.

    I believe this is the most exciting trailer they have made overall. Maybe just a different company producing the trailer, or maybe just a better handle on what they want to emphasize, or maybe it really is indicative of the best season yet!

    One tiny glimpse of Sansa?

    The things I could say.

    I saw a lot in that trailer that I could place from the books and a lot i would like to say. I'll leave it at: Goodness awaits. That is all.
