Game of Thrones Season 5 Opinion(Spoiler Free)

I am not sure about how I feel about the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. According to the show’s creators, they are doing things that haven’t happened in the books. I think part of this comes up because they can’t continue to base the show off the books for so long because they are progressing many times faster than George R. R. Martin can write the books. The main thing is that I have heard that they are killing off many characters who aren’t dead in A Song of Ice and Fire. Honestly this bothers me a little. I am disappointed that they would not stick closer to the books because so far they have a great interpretation of what Martin has written. I have said many times that George R. R. Martin is the writer I could never be because of his willingness to kill so many characters. Don’t get me wrong, I think that he does a great job. I just get to attached to characters that I work so hard on that killing them has to have a purpose in one way or another. So I guess that it is not a surprise that he would continue to make choices that are vastly different from what I would do if I were in the same situation.

Either way; I have faith that they will continue to make a great series. I am not going to lie. I am hooked on the series and it is among my favorites on television. Still, I can’t say that I think they are going about this the best way possible.
