    It's not Brandon. Since you haven't read the books I bet we are talking about two different Starks.

    However, I hope they do Bran's story justice in the HBO series.

    The only Stark that both fans of the books and HBO versions are clueless about is Rickon. It's like Martin temporarily forgot about him.

    The wife and I finally watched the season six opener last night.

    I liked the pre-show catch up, as it reminded me exactly where season five left off. Overall it was a decent episode, but 95% of it moves forward from the last book. Don't get me started on differences in the individual story lines. You'll see if you start reading the books.

    Exceptions, that I can think of are:

    • Jon Snow is dead.
    • The Boltons have control of Winterfell.
    • Aria is transformed into the blind girl.
    • Cersie has been freed, but Queen Margaery and Ser Loras Tyrell are still locked up.
    • Tyrion has gone looking for Daniarius but the story line is totally different.

    We have DirecTV and the video presentation was solid. I wouldn't say that it was reference Blu-ray kind of video, but it was pretty good.

    No banding and even the parts that I assume were CGI looked pretty darn good. Sorry your experience was not as good.

    Watched "Paper Towns" on HBO last night with a plethora of compression/banding issues. It must be the channel on my system. Nothing beats Blu-ray, that's for sure.

    Seeing how HBO is a premium channel that you would normally pay extra for, I am surprised the video would be that bad.

    Since you threatened to leave Comcast, maybe you have HBO Lite.
