Someone said :
Miri Mas Dur was the witch who died screaming in the pyre after she killed Khal Drogo and his child, the stallion who mounts the world. Are you sure you watched this show?

I'm not sure you are her descendent now.

There was about 1250 characters with one line each. I can't remember all the names. I thought Miri might have been one of Drogo's mates.

Complaining that The Game Of Thrones characters lack character development is a bit like complaining Bosco's performance is a bit wooden. You're watching a show about magic dragons and wolves, for pity's sake. It's not Tennessee Williams.

:-p

Even Lord of the Rings had character development.

So did Willy Wonka but it doesn't mean we endeared ourself any more or less to orange midgets who sang shit songs (which is pretty much all that the dwarfs did in Lord of the Rings)

You can't compare Lord of the Rings and Willy Wonka (aka Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).

One is an epic fantasy, full of symbolism, a spiritual journey to a state of consciousness if you will, while the other is about a bunch of midgets and a schizophrenic trying to get to a volcano to melt some gold.

I think the GOTs has got character development but not much.

From the many fantasy novels, I have read few have and most the characters are 2 dimensional, either good or bad. The very same for LOTRs.

The characters in those tales are there to develop the story.

Although you don't see a point of those horse people, without knowing anything of the saga I know by reading others they come into a role later.

I did find the amount of characters in the early series off putting, but I got into it and I am looking forward to the next series.

Actually, I've been trying to think of any characters that developed at in in Game Of Thrones and you are right, there weren't really any.

Unless being killed off counts as character development.

I disagree. Most of the characters are changed by the end of the first book.

Jon learns that The Wall is a shithole and not nearly as romantic as his Uncle painted it. But that is where his loyalty must lie.

Sansa learns that sucking up to Royalty can have devastating consequences. She is utterly changed.

Tyrion still likes booze and whores but he is starting to develop a taste for politics and strategy.

Daenerys has grown from a shy girl to a commanding Queen.

Fair enough, some of the characters do change I guess . . .

Maybe the books do more justice to the characters than the adaptation.

I've only started book one but already Robb is treated a bit better as far as growing into a king

Like this vid, you just got in before me. Loved the first season. Even though I read a lot, I wouldn't go for fantasy novels though.
