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?

I didn't watch last night's eps yet but having read the books, I know what's coming in the last two eps, so I know what you are referring to. There is one more event coming up that isn't as violent but just as shocking.

One of the best things I've like about the series is the change of perspective you get as you get to know various characters and see how their decisions make or break them. Characters I hated, I learned to like, and ones I loved, I learned to dislike.

I think because it's HBO, they do alot more with the nudity, sex and violence. Yes, it's in the books but not as much in your face like it is on screen. The event you are likely referring to is probably the worst of the bunch in the books.

Does it get better? Yes in ways, and in other ways, no. Some people get what's coming to them, and others don't. It is a very brutal world here and it will be interesting to see it through to the end, especially with the knowledge that Winter is Coming and Westeros is too busy fighting to notice.
