I'd give my left leg to be in that movie!

They can't just use green-screen material to make any actor look like an amputee? A la Gary Sinise in Forrest Gump?

I mean there's realism, and then there's realism...

@3 It's HBO, and this is a series not a movie, so the production budget is a very real concern. Real amputees are much cheaper than special effects.

It's probably cheaper to use amputees.

Yeesh, fuck dude -- you didn't warn us about the spoilers!

I suppose GRR Martin fans have Bush and Blair to thank for making sure there are so many handsome young amputees who might want to participate!

Is it really a spoiler to reveal that at some point in the course of Game of Thrones there will be a gruesome battle?

Spoiler? No one made you click on the Red Wedding blue link and read the description.

And seriously, who knows what's actually doing to happen in the HBO version of the Red Wedding? It's not like you can look to the books to know; HBO-Robb's whole relationship with his own wife is completely different from his marriage in the book.

Oh, and Daenerys' dragons were never stolen in the books, NEVER! That one really pissed me off. HBO has really given the Daenerys storyline the shortest possible disappointing.

YOU GUYS. NOTHING IS SPOILED by what's written above, except that there's a wedding where a lot of people die. (unless you click through, I guess, which is your own damn fault)
Do you realize how many weddings there are in this book? (a bunch) Are you surprised that GRRM put some scenes of gruesome slaughter in his book that is set in the middle of a years-long medieval-style civil war? You shouldn't be.

Calm the hell down, or, y'know, read the book -- as @11 points out, it's not like you haven't had plenty of time to get caught up.

P.S. really looking forward to how these nancies react to the Red Wedding once they actually know what it is. O the howling!

It's only a proper Martin wedding if there's rape, possibly being raped in the stump or something.

@4 I guess you could say...they won't cost an arm and a leg.…

If you're complaining about spoilers, pick up the books and read them. If you can't be bothered to do that, don't waste our time complaining about having it 'spoiled' for you; you're spoiling it for yourself.
