I think he's playing Littlefinger well. I actually like him better in the series than in the books.

Actually, that's probably the best part about this series. Most, if not all of the characters are likable in some way or another. Like someone mentioned earlier, it's not all good vs evil Tolkein stylee.

You can hate on the Lannisters but Tyrion is one of my favorite characters in the show. The 3 Baratheon brothers each have their own level of likeable-ness and downfalls. The Stark family ranges the full gamut too.

I'm not sure why I slept on this show so long (just finished Season 1 a few weeks ago). It's just SO good on so many levels.

In that same vein, I've found myself liking Tywin Lannister much much more in the show than in the books. A lot of that has to do with the relative warmth he's been showing to Arya. Seems like they are highlighting that much more in the show.

I feel like they needed to make Tywin a more sympathetic character in the TV show because otherwise Arya would give his name to the ninja assassin dude and he would be dead.

Yeah I never understood her reasoning for not naming Joffrey and Cersei. I guess she wanted to save them for herself?

The Hound sure kicked ass in the last episode. Can't wait for the season finale.

Obviously. They made her a Volantene or something. It's a weird decision, since it seemed that Jeyne was going to figure somehow in the later books. But GRRM clearly okayed the decision to write her out. So maybe she won't matter anymore after all?

I'm really curious how they will circumvent the Red Wedding. Also, the Volantene woman...his wife now... is played by Charlie Chaplin's granddaughter Oona.
