Part of the reason it was hard for me to get through the books after a while is all that crap at Dragonstone.
Stannis is BORING!
And Davos Seaworth is BORING!
And Melisandre is a hugely unlikeable character who’s also a religious zealot who murders innocent people! And is so fucking smug about it!
So that wasn’t fun to read. Ergo, this isn’t fun to watch.
