Sansa is the worst actor of the lot. She lacks such conviction. Then again the female teen actors that portray the "helpless damsel" characters in a variety of shows are beyond terrible. I'm just dreading her role in the future.
Anyhow, I find the show highly entertaining. What's with the high amount of nudity though? It's not tasteful; I don't get it. If it doesn't help along plot it shouldn't be in it, simple.
I wonder if the series will catch up before the final book is written, which would be disastrous. My guess is they'd have to develop a single book into multiple seasons.
I agree that the nudity is excessive at times, particularly during Aiden Gillen's monologue a couple of weeks ago, when the two whores were going at it. I understand that the novels are full of it though, moreso than the series, plus it is HBO.
Also have to agree with Har-Tru that as good as it is, it isn't going to join The Wire, Deadwood, Six Feet Under or The Sopranos.
