Great idea. I'd like to ask something in a non-book context (though I have read them.) I have heard a couple of people I work with say they don't think the Dany story is very interesting, and while I agree that her character is a bit shallow as of two episodes, I think she serves an important function in the Westeros story lines. Unless some time is devoted to showing her as a real person, the conversation between Ned and Robert by the King's Road about her marriage would be fairly empty amid the other harsh actions of the Winterfell and King's Road episodes.
When Robert talks about killing her, it would have very little impact if she wasn't known. How much of a threat can she be? We've seen her and she has very little strength yet.
Anybody here finding her story uninteresting? Again, strictly from the context of the two episodes of the tv show that have aired.
Conversely, the same thing applies to Visaerys and Ser Jorah talking about Ser Jorah's exile. If we didn't know Ned Stark, his honor, and his way being the old way, the reason for exile might have seemed as empty as it did to Visaerys. Just shows how ill prepared Visaerys is to cross the sea and confront the Lords of the Seven Kingdoms.

Reason: incomplete sentence.
