I'm loving the series although I must admit I just thought the more graphic scenes were the result of the producer saying to the script writers, "right boys, we're showing this after the watershed, go nuts!". I'm going to have to read the books. I love the casting as well especially Sean Bean, he is amazing, loved him as Sharpe, Boromir and now as Ned Stark. Do they show more of the White Walkers? They can't throw a teaser like that right at the start then never follow it up.
As for the Sookie Stackhouse books they said Trueblood had to be different because the books were all Sookie and it wouldn't have been practical for a TV show to be purely her. I personally like it because I like how they have developed the side characters and I'm very glad they did change it so Lafayette stayed in because the bloke who plays him is gorgeous. I think again they've got the casting right, the woman who plays Tara was different than what I imagined from the books but she works well and was a good choice.
