Marathoned my season 3 discs while I had a 103 degree fever.

Had Red Wedding dreams.

So they've finally stopped waffling and said, yes, 7 seasons total.

And they told us that, after this season, they'll have caught up with stupid George Martin. Apparently there's been a meeting where lazy fuckwad Martin just outlined what happens to the producers, so now the show doesn't have to stall for his idiot ass.

Which means...all that time everyone has invested in reading and waiting for the book series has just been wasted!

LoLz.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

This is really shameful... I hope Martin burns for this. A betrayal to the fans, and the exposure of a writer who can't write... The show has already had to twist and spin just to fill in his ham-handed gaps and poor storytelling.

It shouldn't take 3 years to write out one book of three when you already have it planned out.

He claims he has the whole thing planned out... So did Robert Jordan with Wheel of Time. Sanderson (who took over the writing when Jordan died) later said that, yes, Jordan had a plan, but only in that he wrote the final climax and none of the shit in between.

So I bet Martin's the same.  He's stalled and dead in the water. So now the TV show has the grand finale, they'll just take a couple more years to fill in the gaps and, viola.

Which means Martin's job will be easy. He'll make mega millions novelizing the TV show.

Citation please? Because I'm interested and surprised that he would admit that.

Gosh back in the chatter-blogs when he first took over. I'll research!

The claim was Jordan wrote the final chapters, the big ones, and had lots of 'outline notes' with a few important passages inbetween... and Sanderson had to connect the dots.

This.

Same principle as what Tolkein's son did...

I'd argue that his dad wasn't all that hot either.
