    That's what I like about this series though- you aren't supposed to particularly like any of them, save for the Starks. The Starks are always portrayed as honorable and just, but even that gets in their own way and causes you to dislike them for their stupidity. Ned and Catelyn Stark both commit monumentally stupid acts in the first season that make you think that they're the dumbest House in Westeros. In reality, they're one of the few Houses in the land with any actual "real" honor. It's a real world with real people, and there isn't a clear-cut good vs. evil plot like Lord of the Rings. It's just war, and each side has people with stories and reasons, just like real life.

    If it's any consolation to you it's exactly how the books are. Every book starts out very slowly (Except for book 3 because they're in full-fledged war by that point) and builds up to the big crescendo. I've figured the reason this series is called A Song Of Ice And Fire is because it's supposed to be read like one of those old compositions. Like a great song, the series has it's beginning that builds up to the main chorus, then it comes back down to the verse, then back to the man chorus, and so on. It's all building towards the main solo at the end.
