I think most people who have read the books should stay away from questions like this. They could inadvertently give something up.
Even though I'd watched all the seasons before I read the books. The books provided so much more detail about the characters. Some "stuff" happens in the books that doesn't happen in the show.
Very sound advice, much as i don't want to bug my librarian its starting to sound like i need to if i really want to understand this show... i've gotten used to tv shows that require actual attention to keep up over the last ten years.
But this one takes the cake, miss 30 seconds and you've missed the whole thing... even the players guide explains nothing.
