But I have to nitpick about a few things. Mainly because they are so simple and its hard to see how they could overlook them.
Not sure these are really spoilers but better safe than sorry.
Can't wait for the next season and hopefully they can flesh it out a bit with more time and more money. This story deserves what it is getting.
Having just reread Clash of Kings (wanted to refresh my memory), I'm honestly fine with the changes they made to Arya's storyline. Her storyline in books 1 and 3 are great, but book two was a disappointment as far as she was concerned. Her chapters felt way too stagnant to me and even she admits that
. Plus, having her interact with Tywin Lannister was far more interesting than her
As far as Season 2 goes, I really liked it. Not quite as much as Season 1, but that's mainly because (aside from the Battle of the Blackwater) the second book was weaker than the first (with A Storm of Swords being the strongest so far in the series). The only thing that bugs me still is what happened with Theon.
