Is it just me or did they switch actors for Loras Tyrell? Also good to finally see Natalie Dormer (a lot of her, actually) as Margaery...

Yeah, her character in the book is much more, subtle, shall we say?

I thought he was the same person.

Speaking of which, my biggest complaints with the show is that he and Renly couldn't seem further from how they're described in the books. Neither are remotely believable physically as having been knights their entire lives. You think the show would have been a bit more picky about not having two actors who look like enormous pansies frolicking around shirtless, when the characters are supposed to be bad asses. Apparently HBO thought that since they'd decided to make them gay, they had to make them both pansies too.

I loved her on The Tudors, so was thrilled to see her pop up here.

I had a look at the actor's profile on imdb and I can sort of see it now...

As for badasses, Loras is not entirely how I pictured him but Renly is. He's supposed to be a younger, more handsome version of Robert but without the lust for battle or women (although its merely hinted at in the books).

Not having read the books, I am enjoying this Renly and his dilemma.

That's my problem, he's described as looking like a young better looking Robert, and Robert was described as being an enormous man who was strong enough to wield a giant hammer in battle when he was young. There are a few times in the first book where they describe Renly as essentially being the epitome of what the Stark kids thought a knight would look like.

By the way, book question about their "relationship"...

 
They're never officially said to be gay in the books, right?

nobody should watch the series unless they have read the books,

well at least the first two.

Oops. Guess I should delete the series so far from my brain.

That's ridiculous, deep. My work revolves around reading so I don't have time for much pleasure reading. I do, however, have time to be entertained by an excellent TV series based on a book series. I am completely into GOT and I really don't care what I'm missing in the books because I will never get around to reading them.

I like hearing the comparisons with the book. In fact, I think I brought it up. I was just making the point that I am loving the series without reading the books.
