for the brilliance of how they handled the arya/tywin and tyrion/cersei side of the story, i guess the mess in Qarth is forgivable. i do admit that the only thing remotely interesting about Dany's story in the novel was the house of the undying part, but seeing as how they cant just suddenly warp her there, i suppose this is their way of paving the story and along the road add some fights and (slight unnecessary) twists. i just would have preferred these twists to be in bite sizes rather than the size of a half pounder.
Dany's storyline in the second book was incredibly dull, but I think this might be a case where they took it too far in the opposite direction. The Westeros storylines are forgivable because they never stray too far from the source material. Personally, I could do without Catelyn's story (the whole Riverrun dying father situation) anyway. Maybe they were afraid of having Dany just walk around a weird city for a whole season, but Jon Snow did that in season one and HBO didn't seem to mind.
i really look forward to the novel approach reviews! i really like both sides of the reviews actually i have been trying to read the series but it is a little hard for me to get into. i just don't see how HBO is going to be able to tell all of the stories in the future with just an hour.
Are you kidding me?? Dany (and Qarth) are one of the best parts of this season! Honestly, just because it's different from the book, doesn't mean it's bad! Dany had a pretty dull storyline in the second book, and the show is doing a great job of spicing it up, and foreshadowing some of the turmoil that she'll face in the future. Please, TV Fanatic, either find someone else to write these "novel approach" reviews or just scrap the idea altogether, because as a huge fan of the book series, these reviews are extremely frustrating to read...
Other than the house of the undying, what great moments were there in Dany's storyline in Clash? I mean she just rides around in her litter waving at people while Xaro proposes to her over and over again until she decides one day, out of the blue, to go visit the house of the undying. I'm not a fan of the Qarth scenes either, but i do think it's better than Dany's journey in the books.
