they just do not live up to the badassery of their book counterparts and are super cliche. just more characters the show has dropped the ball with...

I'm a bit disappointed with the sand snakes so far; they're definitely not as awesome as they are in the books. I'd hoped that Obara would be cast better, but that wasn't really a major thing. I wasn't disappointed with their first scene, as many people seemed to be, but the scene with Myrcella definitely disappointed me. I was hoping for a depiction that better represented their characters. They just didn't live up to how badass they were in the books, and I hope the writers change their attitude to the sand snakes in the next episodes.
But what I'm more disappointed with is Sansa's storyline. She's developing so well in the books, and I thought the show was going to take her in the right direction in terms of her character development, even if she's not in the right place. That scene in yesterday's episode with Myranda seemed like she was finally learning to stand up to people. I've loved that the show is different from the books in certain ways, because it keeps things fresh. But I'm just so annoyed and I think it's completely unnecessary that she's basically taking Jeyne's storyline. I had huge hopes for Sansa, and I don't want her character development to be stunted like this.0
