A Song of Ice and Fire is a great book series. A fair few people here read it based on the recommendation of Rowan or Almor or Caer.

I was originally excited with Game of Thrones but never got past the first season - the excessive hype/mania have really turned me off it. Don't know if I'll ever go back and watch it all.

It was just another boring "here is a bunch of illegal streaming links" thing, if they're not dressed up in a load of dadaistesque poetry I can't summon the interest any more :C

My apologies for being an old cynic! Glad my less cynical buddies were able to help out.

Two episodes in and it's all about to kick off again, huh? I kind of prefer these talky ones in a way, even though by now we're so far past the books it's just fan-service nonsense really. Tormund has some great lines.

I thought the reunion of Jon and Arya was seriously underdone.  When I saw my little sister after Iraq we both cried, and I was only gone for a year and knew I was going to see her.  (Actually come to think of it, did either of them know they were going to see each other before being reunited?)

I know they're stoic warriors and whatnot but honestly, they were each other's best friends during the happy times of their life, and when they see each other again they just sort of stand there and barely smile?  I suppose they're still keeping their emotions in check since they know the war isn't over, but even so.

OK I've seen it now. Quite glad I downloaded a many-GB rip and that my telly is good at low brightness scenes.

The show is very (and increasingly) silly, obviously, and this was pretty good as far as that stuff goes.

I liked that nobody got to do a big long dying speech, they just copped it. I thought some people looked like they really should have had no chance of survival whatsoever and only plot armour kept them going, that got a bit OTT at times.

I watched it Monday. Also downloaded it, and with the lights off and my plasma I had no trouble watching it. I've seen lots of complaints about it being difficult to see though.

I thought it was a pretty epic episode. I felt pretty worn out after watching it though; plenty of tension and action. And lots of questions, or thought some bits were a bit silly.

I also liked the way they died. Almost looked like they were going to say a few last words, but just slipped away.

I still don't quite get the NK. Why was he after Bran? Why didn't he just use his dragon to kill him? Why fly around for a bit instead of just charging in and destroying him? He knocked down part of Winterfell with it. Why chase Danny and Jon instead of going straight for Bran?

I feel too many main characters are not dying now, even though they had so many wights attacking them. And now it feels like the exciting bit is done. Surely the rest won't be as exciting as this now.


Why, oh why is the last episode on the 19/20th? I'll be on holiday :'(

Oh, hello!

Yes, the TV show was a bit over-hyped, though I watched it all. I wish it hadn't run ahead of the books, because now my enthusiasm for them is slightly dulled. The multi-year waits in between publications hasn't helped either, though.
