So tell me....  
people who have read the Game of Thrones books,
This show is just so unremittingly violent, and more than that, hopeless. They kill off almost everyone who you even give a damn about, in the most brutal way possible, and I wonder why keep on with it? Is there a point, when you finally get to the end? Or is it just one long relentless blood bath? Because if that's all it is, I think I'm done. Tonight's episode was just horrible, upsetting, and I just would like to know if it ever gets better?

heh, you're talking to someone who gave up on the series by the first book, here. Hubby has read all of them (so far) and assures me that things do not get better. I myself can't understand the appeal--Martin seems to glorify rape and violence against women in particular, and showcases the worst of human excesses and vices in all his characters. It's just depressing as hell to me. I prefer books that have *some* faith in our species.
