That episode was pretty awesome.  In the book it was obvious that deanerys spoke valyrian, in the episode it wasn't...so it made the pwn so much more harder.
I'm always right.

You're joking right?

Nope.  If you have any sort of memory It would be obvious she knew how to speak valyrian in the series too, but it wasn't constantly reminding you with a narrative in the episode like it did in the book.
I'm always right.

I understand what you're saying (though not whether it is accurate or not), but you should choose your words more carefully.

For the people thinking of reading the books but haven't let me help you decide.

I don't read very often at all... in fact the only time I read is while on holiday as I'm bored as shit as my wife sun bathes and I've got the skin of an Albino.  Anyway... I started reading the books after watching the first season, I read the first book expecting it to have more details and I didn't want to miss anything.  Well I think there was only one really noticeable difference between the first book and series which was one of the battle scenes with Tyrion.  It just wasn't practical to do it for a TV show and would of looked bad I think anyway.  You could of gone straight from the first season to the second book.  You do miss things but nothing major.  

I have read all of the books and I absolutely love them.  I would highly recommend them.

Edit: reading the books has not spoiled my enjoyment of the show either.  You are that far ahead in the books that it's a little hard to remember some of things that have happened earlier.

That's whats great about Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit, you can read the books and it wont spoiler the movies because Jackson just makes it all up as he goes

Jackson's checklist for a movie:

Can it be over two and a half hours long?
Is it a trilogy, or can it be turned into one?
Can I film large-scale landscape shots of people running around in New Zealand?

So the lord of the rings and the hobbit books are a lot different to the films?  I might have to give them a read then.  I love the films

They're not that different in terms of the story line, what people like about the lotr books is the lore and the detailed descriptions which critics call long winded. I used to sympathise with Jackson a bit because it's an impossible task really to capture the whole of the lord of the rings in 3 films, I mean Tolkien hadn't even tied off the loose ends when he died (I suspect the same thing will happen with R.R. Martin). Tolkien's son hates the films though.What Jackson's doing with the Hobbit is just milking it, half of the stuff that's in there drawn from (as in loosely based on) parts of the lord of the rings he left out of the original films and hints of lore from the Silmarillion.

It might have been better to have made lotr a series rather than a trilogy of films, but it would be so hard to do now because it would somehow have to make up for the lack of suspense that comes from not knowing what happens next.

I've read all of the game of thrones books, I don't think they're that well written. I enjoyed them because of the storyline, wit, and really interesting character development but there are parts where you end up questioning his wording and some sentences are ambiguous. The series feels more solid and structured, as if the writer knows where he's going, but the books leave a lot of loose ends and you get the feeling that there's no way he's going to manage to tie them all up by the time he publishes the last book (or dies, whichever comes first).
