I REALLY hope the show forces GRRM to hurry the eff up.

If their current progress is any indication:

late 2013/early 2014 - film and air second part of ASOS and a good chunk of AFFC

late 2014/early 2015 - film and air remaining AFFC/most of ADWD

late 2015/early 2016 - film and air remaining ADWD and beginnings of TWOW

 

If that pace is at all accurate, and the show endures that long (no indications of slowing down thus far), I think that means that he'll have to at least put The Winds of Winter out by early 2015 at the absolute latest for the show not to overtake him. That also means that he'll have to have A Dream of Spring done by early 2016.

 

I'm personally crossing my fingers in hopes that he either releases the books back to back in 2015/2016, or even sooner than most are expecting.

 

I think you are fooling yourself :)

 

 

 

In all seriousness tho, I'm sure the show is giving him a little shove.

My timeline is they have enough for 5 more seasons as is, depending on pace.

There are some thoughts out there that HBO would just finish up the show first, and then Martin would release the books after the fact.

I'd have to think, if I was GRRM, that I wouldn't want that.

I really hope they dont stretch AFFC and ADWD into four seasons

I finally got time to go to Time Warner and get a replacement converter box that died, so I just now saw the episode.

 

I read the recaps first, so I went in with lower than normal expectations.  But I absolutely loved it.

 

Here's what I will love/hate coming up:

 

Love:

RW done immaculately while I watch with my non-reader friends.

Hate:

Ygritte gone. Rose Leslie has played her perfectly.

(Probably season 4 or even 5 on this)

When Tywin gets killed. His character is also perfect.

Speaking on the spoiler here.

 

Yes those two are absolutely excellent.

Just unreal casting on the show for the most part.
