It's why my "reading" is entirely from online summaries and stuff haha. It still tells you how people die but quite briefly, and I can quickly keep moving (since it's a summary) so I don't have to dwell on it very long hahaha. The worst yet IMO happens in I think book four? Tyrion kills somebody and GROSS GROSS GROSS GROSS. Can't handle it.
That would be Book 3 (when he kills Tywin on the privy?).

Note to those who've read ahead: (books/wiki) it's probably best not to openly mention Tyrion's existence past ASOS/Book 3, because it ruins the suspense of his trial and the duel to know he lives.

My least favorite was a book 2 scene where he disemboweled a horse with his helmet (not much of a spoiler), which I found unbelievable and therefore gratuitous. So I ended up squicked and angry lol.

So, I was thinking, how do the books/seasons line up? I doubt it but for example, does season one = book one? What book are we on now?

We're in the middle of book 3 right now. More or less Season 1 = book 1. Season 2= book 2. Season 3 = part of book 3.

The show is violent but I eat and watch it all the time! The worst scene for me was when Mel gave birth to the shadow creature that killed Renly. I don't know why but that was awkward. Also, the scene from season 1 where Littlefinger is talking and the two whores are going at it the whole time. That seemed gratuitous.

I hate basically all the brothel scenes. I like porn, I like sex scenes, but the brothel scenes are gratuitous/trying too hard and sometimes a bit gross. Like the Meereenese Knot. I found that somewhat nasty.

That said I can only think of a handful of videos that might make me lose my appetite and GoT doesn't come close to being one.

Thought the end was rather anticlimactic ):
