Also wanted to hear from some book readers on something I noticed
Is it just me or does the more objective prospective of a tv show really help develop and make you care about secondary characters?
Example: I loath allistor Thorne in the books, but in the show I see him as more just a grizzled old vet concerned the young brothers aren't ready. I absolutely loved his speech this week.
Similarly, I think little finger and varys come off as less one dimensional evil/bad
I've decided that what causes it is in the books, you see those people from the POV of people who hate them, while in the show, they tend to be shown more objectively since were not getting the view of them through the same mental filter. I've liked it so far, but wonder how it will work with some big plot points....minor spoilers below I guess
For example, rahgar (sp). In the books, we are left in suspense as to what kind of man he was because of the POV aspect. Robert clearly hates him, but Ned and others who have gotten POV chapters seem to remeber him as an upstanding and nobel if arrogant, guy. This plays into a ton of the conspiracy theories for heads of the dragon, jon snow parentage theories, Ect.
Just wonder how or if they'll get at that kinda development of characters with this third person prospective the show has to have. I've liked what it's done for those and other chrActers so far though
Apologies for grammar, that's alot to type on an iPhone hehe
