Well there you go, you should really get into it then.
I guess I hear the common gripe about it being slow moving and it's sometimes kinda funny to me. The books have so much character development and show took quite a bit of liberty to "speed things up" and it still gets complaints of it moving too slow.

They could do more than a 10 episode season, but season 1 and 2 were on with book 1 and 2. Think about that. He did 1 book in a 1 hour, 10 episode season. So 1 book is 10 hours. Harry Potter would do 2 and a half hours for a book, except the last 1that they split in 2. And since they are splitting up book 3 in 2 seasons, they will have 20, 1 hour episodes on just 1 book. 20 hours on just 1 book. That's crazy. And I'm assuming you read the books like I did? I want them to take their time too and really develop the characters and fit in as much as they can, but that would be way too slow for the non book reader fans and would lose a lot of viewers.
