    Sometimes the show really brings the book’s characters to life (Tywin, Olenna, Osha) but sometimes it’s really disappointing (Jon, Shae, Renly). I think Loras is definitely the latter. To me, when a character’s main (and only) attribute is their sexual preference, it shows a poorly written character.

    One of the biggest complaints I have with the show is the lack of subtlety and mystery. For example, rather than alluding to what’s happening with Craster’s sons and leaving it mysterious, they show one of the Others grabbing it in full view. Loras is the same. Rather than alluding to Renly and Loras’ relationship, they turn them into gay caricatures to the point where the characters are known as “the gay ones”. I think the writers should give the audience more credit.

  • Mr.Hendrix

    Heavily disagree on Loras. TV show Loras’s character is entirely Gay Knight. That’s it. They cut some character defining stuff like the rage he went into after Renly was killed, and his cheesy line to Tyrion, “when the sun has set, no candle can replace it”. And did they cut out the part where he volunteers to be the one to bring Gregor to justice in book 1?

    You’ve got this in the Walking Dead category, not the Game of Thrones category. Great show.

    Harenhal probably controls large tracts of lands that can be farmed and taxed.

    Count me in as another book reader who liked Ros.

    The fact that so many other book readers hated her so much made me like her even more.
