    On that mountain top when they kissed I could hear Peter Falk, could you hear Peter Falk?































    (I could also hear Maria Von Trap.)

    If you think this is bad, just wait until we get to books 4 and 5.

    Yeah - methinks there's going to be some serious artistic license going on when we get into those teleplays.

    That wasn't a mountain top............It was the top of the wall.

    How wide is the wall? The section they were standing on at the end made it look like 30 feet at most! That's pretty thin for a wall that's 700 feet tall!

    The wall is tapered. At the top it can support 6 or so people walking side by side.

    That would ruin the reveal. Sometimes it is better to let the audience imagine a thing, because it will almost always be more terrifying/horrible than what you could show them.

    That reveal of what happened to Ros was like a bucket of ice water right down your back. :eek:

    Seemed pretty vertical to me when they were climbing the thing...

    Avoiding the books, watch the intro. It's not a shear cliff.

    Even tapered at 700ft. high it could still seem pretty sheer.

    The crows probably empty buckets over the side to maintain the consistency and thickness of the wall... The wall should be yellow. Seriously if you knew that thing was 80 percent piss would you really go near it, god forbid climb it?

    Why do you have to be so unpleasant in every thread you post in?

    But yes in the books they do mention that the Night's Watch add ice to the wall regularly.

    I know people have to be pretty on tv but it would be nice if Ygritte was actually rougher looking as she is in the books. At least black out a tooth.

    There is no Sugar beyond the wall.

    What ever primitive means they have for cleaning their teeth balances out against that.

    In the books her mouth is too big or her nose or something.. everyone north of the wall is ugly, misshapen, beaten by weather. At least make her less fresh faced, she barely looks like she's been out of the house.



    Lady Tyrell's profile change.. :lol:

    Tyrion and Brienne are also described as rather hideous in the books.

    It's a TV show. People aren't going to want to watch a bunch of ugly people running about. It's just one of those things that comes with the territory.
