Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have surprised fans on more than one occasion by changing the trajectories of some of the series characters from what happened to them in the literary A Song of Ice and Fire series. Some fans have complained about the changes, while others are fine with it. Should the show keep its fidelity to the original George R.R. Martin books, or is it best for the show to veer off into original territory?
In a surprise announcement this morning, HBO revealed that starting next year, they'll be offering up a stand-alone service, bringing their line-up of programming to those who don't have a cable provider. This cord-cutter couldn't be happier!
