One thing I noticed was they mention their informant, Mormont, when I don't remember that happening until much later and it was a secret until the.

Other then that this episode needed a lot more boobies to make up for that totally random "lets make 2 characters very gay". :p

I know some people missed it but it wasn't really that subtle in the books. It wouldn't have ever been appropriate for a scene like that in the books though but only because there is no Renly or Loras POV chapters. So it is talked about in pretty strong hints.

jaimie saying to loras "
"Now sheathe your bloody sword, or I?ll take it from you and shove it up some place even Renly never found."
--SoS, pg. 698
Woah I totally missed that. Good find. /puke

You are remembering incorrectly, that scene was pretty much straight from the book, including the mention of Mormont.

I thought episode 5 went overboard with the constant insults. Otherwise very well done.

uh..

WOW is all I gotta say. I wonder what made Martin say
"You know what, I just wanted to be subtle in the books, but I think this time around I want Loras to shave Renly and follow up with atleast the audio of a gay blowjob"

The
discussion about being a king and what makes a king is something that you only really see later when Catelyn talks to Renly and tries to prevent a battle between him and Stannis. I guess he wanted to emphasize that point earlier...

Also, what it me or
Wasn't illryo supposed to have a forked beard...I know these characters often look nothing like their counterparts in the books, but this is something that should have been easy to do; it didn't even have to be yellow

Gratuitous sausage shot and gay slurping has put me off this show. Won't be watching again.
Ohs Noes, I saw a ding a ling! Seriously, I love people sometimes. I watched a horses head get sliced off, a humans head get sliced off, whores getting fucked, more tits that I would know what to do with and much much worse... but I saw head #2 RUN!!!! Women who watch this show, and others, have had to see tits, ass, crotch shots and everything else. Why is it so different when it's a man? Oh that's right homophobes is why. Afraid it is going to reach through the screen and slap you across the face?

BTW, I am not gay, I am married and straight. I just can't stand bigots. Is that my favorite scene? Well no. However, am I going to stop watching a great show because I saw a little dick... nope.

I am thoroughly enjoying the show. I don't know why, but I never read Martin. I see it as kind of a double edge sword to read it now. If I read it now, it will give way a lot of what is going to happen. But, also, I think I could follow the story better.

Yeh saw that. Im liking HBOGO.
I like it but dislike it. I am not happy that I have to use an app to get the shows. Mostly due to the fact I don't have a good way to hook up to my TV right now. If they had it setup for like PS3 or other ways I would be happy.

I like the idea of HBO Go but the video quality is distractingly bad, borderline unwatchable.

Man, you're lucky Theon wasn't even hard when he pulled out.

And all these homophobes probably watch straight porn with nary a worry.

hah. so far we've seen incest, lots of tits, some ass, midget knob slurping, mildly lesbian scene, horse head chopped off, human heads chopped off, knife in the eye, all sorts of gratuitous stuff, and you don't want to see the show again because you are put off by one sausage shot and gay slurping?

i missed the sausage shot but Im not gonna rewind to find it.

^This. The dude wasn't even erect in the sausage shot. And why are these complainers focusing on the sausage when there are a pair of tits on the screen at the same time? I did't even notice the penis until I watched the episode for the 2nd time.
