**** man, I can't take a story seriously unless the writer is willing to kill fan favorites.

For example, there is this show called Falling Skies, decent sci fi show, but there is one critical flaw in the show, the main characters, one of which is a kid, always do dangerous things and none of them ******* die. There was this one moment in the most recent season where one of the main character's mind is under the control of aliens, so the writers set it up for a potentially great moment. The mind control character held his father hostage, had a gun to his head, and the dudes brother was pointing a gun at him. They could've had the brother shoot the mind control dude, they could've had mind control dude shoot the father, but they didn't, father magically got away. Then mind control dude decides to shoot himself, but the bullet magically grazes his cheek instead of going into his skull.

Not only is it unrealistic, but it makes me careless about characters, because I know they're gonna be ok. If you kill some loved characters, it makes you worry about the ones that are left, which makes you care about them even more. And when a character does die, you get a real emotional response, which makes the story feel even more real.

What a load of **** . All the people in the book died years ago, and all you retards pretend as if it is some devious plan by the show directors.

Yes because George R.R. Martin is the guy who makes the show not the guy who wrote the books.

IMO if a story wants to be truly intense, you need to fear for the characters lives. And 90% of movies and TV don't care about this so when the main characters are in a jam it's just like "hmm I wonder what asspull will get them out of this situation."

That's why Game of Thrones and Attack on Titan are so awesome.

Don't worry, with Moffat there every single one of them will come back to life within 5 minutes with a massive reset button.
