to me Brans chapters tend to be some what boring but him being "whiny" was never a complaint of mine. I'd probably be a little "whiny" as well if i got thrown from a tower crippling me for life, then my entire family aside from my 4 year old brother leaves to the south. Then my father dies,
my home is burned and everybody either killed or taken hostage, separated from Rickon to go on a viscous journey north of the wall, then my mother and older brother are betrayed and killed
but it is fantasy so he should be a bad ass who never whines or complains tbh/.
Yeah for the long run I don't see how they can leave the Reed siblings out, unless they're going to introduce them in book 3. I can understand that they may need to drastically alter some story-lines to fit this all on TV, especially when a loan characters story arc could get expensive to produce. I'm not going to put in any spoilers but for those that know the series the Adventures of Arya is a prime example of this. This shouldn't be an issue with what happens to Bran though, and I can't see how they could change his story arc up or get there without the Reed siblings.
HBO is promoting the **** out of GOT and I think they're doing a pretty good job. The average number of viewers for a new episode last season was about 2.5 million people. After reading Twitter it seems like there are so many people hyped for this new season. I wonder what kind of numbers the show will get.
on a book note I wonder if Sir Fatty even started writing again. He said he was gonna start writing at the beginning of 2012, but who knows if that held up.
Who will he be supporting?? Tyrion is the "main character" in season 2. (as much as a main character this series has)

Did you consider Ned Stark to be the main character in season 1? I can't imagine another character to be focused upon as he was last season.
Ned Stark was definitely the main character in season 1, and Tyrion will be the main character in season 2. They function in the same way McNulty did in The Wire, not hogging too much focus but just enough to centre the show. The supporting cast in Game of Thrones isn't as strong as The Wire though. Daenerys, Jon Snow, Tywin, Cersei & Neds wife are all fairly boring.
