After tonight, I'll be switching to L&O:CI for the duration. I get the truncation of the absolutely over-blown prose, but to make it dull?! When Robert was going on about kingly BS, I zoned out, checked my email, and did some on-line purchases. I know, absolutely, I'll be hung by the rafters from fans here & IRL, but aside from seeing Arya with her trainer, I couldn't give two craps. At least I'll save some money on HBO cancellation.
