    WIC is claiming HBO is about to order two more seasons and film them back to back

    Good things

    I finished Dance with Dragons not long ago (I had to buy an e-book to read the damned heavy edifice!) and you won't be disappointed. It's one of the best in the series, without a doubt.

    I listened to them
    rather than read them
    so . . I might have missed some minor points

    Fantastic.

    I loved 1-3, and 5 was certainly better than 4... but I dunno, there were some things about 5 that left me feeling unsatisfied. Maybe it's been too long since I read the others, but I felt like 5 was a lot of sitting around and not doing much. Only parts I really unequivocally enjoyed were the Wall parts.

    I read it in about 10 days, but I can agree to a point. Certain characters, yes. Others, it was quite eventful.

    Still think it's weird that the Reeds and Reek weren't cast for this season.

    First three were good. Feast of Crows was absolutely horrible and I had to drag myself through each chapter. I'm finally on the fifth book and it's good again.

    Looks much better than the Bieber wig used at the end of last season

    I wouldn't call it horrible, but it was certainly a let down after Storm of Swords. But just about anything would have been.

    I couldn't stand it. I was skimreading through a lot of it. Everyone was just so damned whiny. And even the scenes that seemed like it would build up to something epic... was a let down after. Fifth is so much better already and I'm only 6-7 chapters in.

    I wonder what their plan is with Arry when they run into the Walt problem?

    Well, this series covers a much larger period of time than Lost did. The first 4 seasons of Lost covered 100 days and seasons 5 and 6 covered 2 weeks. While the first two books of a Song of Ice and Fire take around a year.
