    I still can't stop thinking about the 8000 babies killed by the slave army!
    I'm the opposite... I find it easier to read than watch the brutality.

    Also someone correct me if I'm wrong but in the books I thought they said it was a puppy not a baby?

    I can't get over how tall Sansa is. Isn't she supposed to be 13 or around that age?

    They say in the tv series Sansa is 13 but she certainly doesn't look it

    My understanding is that because they had to age Daenerys for television (it would have been indecent not to!) they aged the other children accordingly.

    Hi Just jumping into the conversation.

    After the first ep of s3 I had to go back and watch a few episodes from s2 because it had been so long!

    I'm the same. Took me forever to figure out that Snow was a ******* name and not just some random name! It took me watching twice and reading the first book to figure it out. I told DH and he was like, "yeah, I knew that" and he's only seen it once!

    There's no way they could have left the kids the age they are in the books.

    DP doesn't think it would be realistic if Robb was leading an army and he was younger.

    I just think it would be awful having Daenarys younger. I couldn't watch it then.

    Gah, torture! DH is away until next weekend, nearly two weeks... And I was meaning to wait until his return to watch!

    I will be strong, I might occupy myself with a catch up from the very beginning in his absence.

    I'd better steer clear of this thread though... See you in a fortnight
