This is partly what I was trying to get at earlier with straightforwardness.
I feel a TV show simply has to be straightfoward in order for viewers to follow it. Unlike a book, a TV series is structured in a way that doesn't allow for a mass of tiny detail to be used. It is always on a time scale and budget, even sometimes the amount of episodes in a series isn't enough to include a large majority of things.
To delve into what GRRM writes word for word would be far too complex and vast to cover. That is why the book should always remain a more detailed version of the TV series or movie.
I in no way disagree with that.
But you guys said they were better writers, not that they were adapting for TV.
I've seen loads of TV shows who can use subtlety, language, camera shots, music, good acting and editing to foreshadow and convey things a million times better than GOT has so far. It's not great writing, it's a great story, and that came from GRRM.
