Re: I might watch it sometime
>the books are better
Sorry, that old cliche usually works but doesn't fly here: a) the books are horrendously slow in coming out, b) are apparently fleshing out more and more, but not in a good way* as they go and c) any notion of surprise twists is going out the window as this will be the first time a real (not novelization) set of books comes out after a movie.
I could already see the loss in plot tempo in book 4 so didn't bother with 5. And 6 was due in 2016, then 2017, then... I like GRRMs other work so I actually wouldn't mind if he gave up and let HBO drive and went back to writing SF, less self-consciously.
