GoT Season Premier
Yesterday afternoon I watched the Season 5 Premier of Game of Thrones.
Season 1, as I recall it, was remarkably true to the book.
Since then, changes have crept in - some necessary, some that baffled me, but without doing any serious damage.
Now, they've taken turns that are not just different from the books, but totally unreconcilable with major story lines and plot points.
The idea is that B & B are taking a different route to the same destination as Martin.
But the journey's the thing, isn't it?
It's good, I'll give it that.
But from here on out, it's no longer the same story.
And I don't know how I feel about that.
