A glaring exception to this rule are the Bourne books and movies. The Ludlum books are just horrible and the movies are excellent.
I've been waiting for the mountain red viper fight for two years. Also Been waiting for this finale for some time. The comeuppance will be inconceivable.
The casting has generally been dead perfect except for Daario Naharis. This guy should be way more flamboyant. Not quite Jack Sparrow but certainly not this dull beige character they are presenting. In general it is supposed to be more colourful across the narrow sea but no fat belwas and a bad Daario and I don't get the feeling that Mereen is the exciting powder keg it should be. Also wasn't the dragon supposed to have eaten the sheep herders son? Will have to go back and check the book. The dragons are supposed to be getting less romantic and more dangerous at this point.
