I'm only watching it because I can't stop at this point.

Watching for that Brienne full frontal. I understand.

The books are loooooong...  like really, really long.

Unless you just like to read to read, if you've seen the entire show to date, not sure why you would read them at this point.

If you want to read something long pick up the Hyperion Cantos (4 books) by Dan Simmons.  Definitely worth your time.

They said they're working on four spin off shows.. HBO really milking westeros for all it's worth. Although, I wouldn't mind seeing what happened with valyria or the fall of the mad king 

I want a fictional biop called: "Daemon" (or) "The Rogue Prince" 

That's how they should frame the DwD.  100% my wish as a miniseries.

I agree.  Tried to read one of them on a long flight and they are to long and not that interesting.  I read most of it during the flight simply because there wasn't much else to do.  On the return flight, I ended up reading or re-reading the Killer Angels, one of my favorites.

There are a couple good books. The first season of the show follows the first book pretty closely and then starts branching out after that. Clash of Kings and storm of swords were great.. Then they split the characters into two books and had mixed results

The pilot episode of the show made me go out and get the books. I read the first 4 right before book 5 came out. They were a gateway drug and now I've read countless other books and discovered other great authors. I wasn't a reader at all before, so there's that.

I'm obviously a fan of both the books and the show, but I can relate to book readers' woes with some of the changes the show made.

That said, it is easily still the best show on TV as far as I am concerned, and besides a couple other shows, nothing that I have seen has really come close within the past decade.

I'm looking forward to season 7 and beyond. Season 8 will only be 6-7 episodes IIRC.

As far as the spinoffs, they've already came out and said that Dunk and Egg wouldn't be one of them. That's kind of a bummer, because they are good stories too.

If I had to guess, we might see some stuff about the Age of Heroes, Aegon's Conquest, The Blackfyre Rebellion, Robert's Rebellion, The Dance of Dragons, or maybe even the arrival of the Andals into Westeros.

Most of that will be monster/dragon-less political drama, though, and I'm not sure how successful it would be.

I'd rather them get with other fantasy authors to develop their series (Scott Lynch - Gentlemen Bastards) (Patrick Rothfuss - The Kingkiller Chronicle) than try to milk more stuff out of Martin.

Netflix is making a show based on The Witcher books.     The games have been fantastic so I'm excited.

Even though they're comedies, right now I'd put Brockmire, Rick and Morty, and Silicon Valley over them as my favorite things to watch. I don't have a good drama going on right now.  I've heard good things about The Leftovers, but meh.

I'm currently reading through the books and I'm enjoying them for the most part. It gives you a lot more insight into certain characters and it really makes it obvious why some characters were killed off. I.E., Theon and Jamie have a lot more depth in the books since you better understand their thought process, and it's a joy when the Starks die because they're so dumb and their chapters are so boring. 

Some characters translate better on the show, like Cersei and Brienne. But others are pretty much ruined now for me, like Danaerys and Tyrion.

Ser Jorah is better on the show than in the books, too, I think. Alfie Allen's portrayal of Theon definitely does the books justice.

I just hate that they both cut it and then started dragging it out, and I'm tired of it all at this point.  End it already and put it out of it's misery so Martin can die.
