So how are they going to adopt Book 3? I don't think 10 Episodes will be enough to make it properly. I know they touched on this at Comic Con but I didn't understand what they meant. Are they going to change the events of the book more like a movie would do, or are they going to put it into 2 seasons?
Personally I think Season 3 and 4 should be based on Book 3, with HBO ordering them both early in Season 2 to ensure that the writers can map it all out and decide where Book 3 will be split.
As for Books4 and 5, since they are both technically one book split in 2 parts, they should be put back together and treated as one huge book. Maybe give that book 2 seasons with 12 episodes in each.
So I see it going like this...
Game of Thrones - Season 1 (2010) 10 Episodes Total
Clash of Kings - Season 2 (2011) 10 Episodes Total
Storm of Swords - Seasons 3 & 4 (2012, 2013) 20 Episodes Total
Feast for Dragons - Seasons 5 & 6 (2014, 2015) 24 Episodes Total
How do you guys see this working? I think it's best if they stay true to the books, no matter how many seasons it takes.
Note: I have only read Game of Thrones, so no spoilers for Books 2-5 please.
