From the poster boy for only posting when you have something positive to say. I didn't realize I could only talk about the show in a positive light. Act better than people? No. I just know where the show takes a different (and almost always worse) path than the book(s). Unlike some, or possibly most people, I have expectations for how the show should go about things. I can't just act happy with whatever they decide to do, especially when it makes the story worse.

It's one thing to talk about things the show does that you don't like. It's another thing entirely to say shit like this:

Do you understand that people can be assholes without consciously realizing it, because their egos prevent them from seeing themselves in a bad light? 'Cause that's the story of your life.

Yeah, I'm being smarmy by pointing out the "ballsy" things they do with the show depreciates the series. Meanwhile, the guy I'm replying to says the show is unequivocally flawless and anyone who says otherwise can basically fuck off.

I thought the dragon beat warlock thing was a bit meh also.
I expected 1 of the dragons to die or at least be forced around a bit, or the chick absorbing them and becoming Mother of Dragons the supersayan or some shit.
this was kinda lame.

oh hi Fierce.
ya dick

Yeah, you were being a smarmy asshole then, and guess what? You're being a smarmy asshole again, right now, while claiming that you weren't being one earlier. Your lack of self-awareness is astounding.

He said it was great, not flawless. It's right in the post that you quoted. And he didn't say that anyone who disagreed should fuck off, he said, "if you are too busy picking on differences to enjoy it, too bad." That's you he's talking about. Maybe you should actually read what other people are saying.

And congratulations, you don't know what irony means.

Uh, what good use is that to say? The show is absolutely great. That's all I can speak for myself for.

Well I did say that I had spoken to people who have read it. And that was what they said. But I suppose I could mention now that I'm almost finished with the first book and I have no complaints so far. I will acknowledge that ACoK is supposed to be more different from what I've heard, before you point that out to me, but I'm sure no matter what I think of the book, I will always believe that the show is goddamn fantastic.

And I just read that you said I thought it was unequivocally flawless? Hahaha, what the hell? Way to put words in my mouth.

I'll illustrate an example to prove my point, somewhat ACoK book spoilers:

Spoiler!

That's fine. I only speak for myself. My point was just that you call it great, but from the perspective of someone who regards the books and how they're written highly, the show could (and should) be significantly better.

I had a number of issues throughout season 1, but yes, relative to season 2, season 1 wasn't that bad. I don't doubt you'll still enjoy the show. People who watch something before they read it almost always cling to the thing that gave them their initial impressions. Even amongst the people that read the series first, people like me are the minority. I'm fine with that. Not going to change how I feel.

Sorry for the hyperbole. I was paying homage to the Colostomizer, who only deals in absolutes, and twists everything said to mean something more extreme.

Yes, that detracted from the battle for me, significantly. Along with a number of other things, but I acknowledge that was always going to get the shaft due to financial restraints.

I could go on near endlessly with the things I take liberties with in the show, but I'm not going to do that because it would take forever, and noone in this thread cares enough to know everything I hate about the show.

"I put words in your mouth to make it easier for me to dismiss you argument and look down on you. I did that because of the way that The Colostomizer acts, even though he has nothing to do with you or what you were saying."

That is the weakest rationalization for your bullshit that you've ever offered. Are you even trying?
