I couldn't believe the news when I heard it in passing, then I looked up Drudge. Completely stunned.
I work in cardiology, and even with a history of heart problems, 43 is way too young.

I remember first seeing Andrew on Red Eye. He could be extremely funny and self-depricating, yet was passionate with his conservative convictions.

Rest in peace, Andrew. May God watch over your family.

In my experience, when reading about Sansa I went from being annoyed, to sympathetic, to actually excited. I do like seeing the growth of a character. She is learning from the master manipulator now after all.

Yeah, she has definitely reverted back to an earlier form of herself, but that may have been the point. She is sitting in that city doing nothing. She was at her greatest when she was conquering.

Yeah, Im not seeing the "evil" part. At MOST so far, he has been a jerk.
I consider him a good guy actually. A good guy that loves the ladies ;)

There ARE heroes, but they are few and far between, and most of them are imperfect. The sex is probably a bit much for some people which is understandable. The profanity is not excessive in the least and is appropriate to the characters and situation when it appears.

"Tyrion becomes much more sympathetic and, strangely, he earns your respect despite his evil behavior"
What "evil" behavior? Or were you being sarcastic?
Tyrion is sympathetic precisely because he is NOT evil, but rather unjustly perceived as so for being a dwarf (and because of his family's reputation). His father, Tywin, hates him for causing the death of his wife while giving birth to him . Except for Jon Snow, everyone judges him poorly based on his appearance despite how intelligent and well spoken he is. He earns your respect because despite his small stature, he survives and excels because of his wit. He is certainly a mixed bag of clever, honorable, good-natured, and flippant.

I agree with the sex being over-the-top for some of the episodes. They could have cut out the scene where Littlefinger gives his exposition while instructing his whores on how to please a man. His motivations could have been more cleverly revealed. A man like Littlefinger, who is a master of information, would know better than to discuss such things openly with his employees.

I do hope Season 2 deviates from using "sexposition" to explain to the audience a character's motives.

If only people would actually listen to the lyrics of some of these songs.
Many think "Every Breath You Take" is a love song.

"It is ethnically and religiously homogenous. It does not face the issues of a multiethnic democracy."
Spot on.
