My sub woofer was working overtime on Sunday night during the wildfire explosion scene. Pictures were falling off the walls.

I don't instant why they keep making the story less interesting than it was in the books. Lora's wearing Renly's armor was awesome, Tywin showing up to save the day is significantly less so.


What exactly was different? Tywin didn't come to their rescue in the book?

What an awesome episode. One of the best hours of TV I've ever seen.

Tywin was up in the north fighting Robb in the book, IIRC. Loras came to the rescue leading Renly's army and attacked them from behind on the other side of the river. Also, Tyrion was the hero in the book, something they seemed to downplay a bit in the show, which I found a bit disappointing as he's my favorite character and Peter Dinklage is the best actor in the show.

I don't really think that they downplayed Tyrion's contribution to the battle that much as far as being a hero is concerned. He was still in charge of the (slightly different but still awesome) wildfire plan, and his rousing speech rallied the troops as intended. If I remember correctly from the books, he was never really seen as the hero of the blackwater with most of the credit of saving the city going to Loras.

LOS ANGELES—According to insider sources, the future of HBO's Game Of Thrones is currently in doubt, with the hit fantasy series facing a dire shortage of weather-beaten, bedraggled old men to cast. "A lot of the big crowd scenes in season two really depleted the available pool of greasy-haired bearded actors over 70, and for the sake of continuity we can't really reuse them," executive producer D.B. Weiss said Monday, stressing the importance of having a minimum of one new elderly and disheveled male character in every episode of the epic drama. "I honestly don't know what we're going to do. In the third season, we have at least a dozen war room meetings to film, and you can't shoot a war room meeting without having at least two or three poorly groomed old guys with big, tangly beards hanging around." The Game Of Thrones crisis is the latest in a series of casting woes to beleaguer HBO, which in March announced it had already used up its annual allocation of Steve Buscemi.
