  •  Children of the Forest (2+ / 0-)

    The HBO guys cut out all reference to the Children of the Forest and issues about environment/ man wiping out everything, preferring instead to add recurrent sex and torture scenes.    I'd like to see at least a mention of GRRM's observations the slavers of slavers bay have deforested and desertified verdant forests into wasteland.  Take just a line of dialogue  or two.

    •  They haven't been completely cut out (2+ / 0-)

      They've been mentioned at least once or twice.  They are mentioned in the viewer's guide on the HBO website.  Their history was apparently explained in an extra on one of the blue-ray sets.

    •  Wasn't the very first scene of the series (0+ / 0-)

      one involving the Children of the Forest?  (Maybe not; I haven't read the books.)
