Which lunch table will you eternally sit at?

That is something that gets people. I usually understand that adapting a novel or book series into 2 hours, or 2 hour sections, is incredibly hard. You sometimes have to cut out a lot and re write scenes to get the same point across on screen and have it flow well. It does not take away from the book. It's still there for you to read at anytime. It's just an alternate version. I get why they make changes when books are adapted for weekly television series too. No matter how much a person may love the books or long to see one of their favorite parts brought to life (we all have those), do you really want to know everything that is coming week after week? It doesn't stay fresh that way.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
