I have no desire to read the books as of right now since I have a backlog of things to read already.

Not to be a bastard, but how come so many in here are not compelled to actually READ the story, as well?

I have a couple of James Patterson books to read. The second Richard Castle, Simong Pegg's book, Adam Carolla's book and I need to proofread the novel I wrote earlier this year because I send it to have it printed.

NBA finals are hurting the ratings on this, but the ratings are staying solid anyway.

I liked some parts of feast. cersei gets pwned and exposed as a moron. jamie pwns her more. loser fat dude gets laid - hooray for nerds!

Problem with feast is that it NEVER should have happened in the first place. It was supposed to be one book, but it was broken up into two: Feast for crows and Dance with dragons, as a result of there being too much material. And unfortunately, Feast ended up with mostly low tier characters that nobody cared about. The editor should have just said: "yo brah, but nobody wants to read a POV about Brienne of Tarth and a bunch of random characters. they're not interesting enough in their own right. yeah sure a lot of your fans are fat nerds, but a hot steamy sex scene where a fat nerd gets his jollies off while cool, doesn't warrant an entire POV. we all just wanna see Dany return and rape everyone"
Still, seeing Cersei get pwned (LOL at the part where she asks that one dude to "take care" of Bronn and the hilarious end result) and the Sansa Stark story arc conclusion (Lysa: "IM A CRAZY BITCH" Petyr: "I only ever loved Catelyn" -> crouching fierce -> HYPER COMBO FINISH!!!! -> guardbreak on singer -> ROM infinite) made the book worth it. the cheesy Brienne cliffhanger ending with the "one word" (WHAT COULD THE WORD BE?) was lame though.

Littlefinger giving Lysa the middle finger was at the end of Storm - the good book.

Valaris, bring back spoiler tags. This thread needs them.
FFC was boring, but it wasn't mean to be exciting, it was building for a new major conflict and showing the fallout of the shit that had been happening in books 1 - 3. Major focus was on a certain cunt that no one likes, a bunch of new characters from places we hadn't seen, and boring characters from previous books.
CLU, you finish first law trilogy? I read it back when it was still coming out in the UK, so I'm not sure about the spoilers.
First law did some new things with fantasy, had some very interesting characters, but so much of it was made pointless by itself. The ending of book 2 pissed me off, and the siege of that one city felt pointless when the only character you cared about could have left at any time with no worries. Abercrombie's reach exceeded his grasp, but due to inexperience rather than incompetence.

I haven't really read the thread, b/c I've seen people already discussing the books. Since this thread was made for the TV show, (and not everyone has read the books nor wants to) shouldn't discussion be catered towards that and not chock full of spoiler tags?
I really like this show.
Poor Ned, though. Over and over, him making the morally "right" decision bites him in the ass. I'm wondering why they didn't respect his right as lord protector though? Seemed a bit odd to me.
