And of course HBO had a "free" weekend to get everyone who doesn't subscribe (me) hooked on the very first episode. Damn your machinations, HBO! lol

I'm watching episode #1 again tonight. Even after watching it once and having read the book five or six times, it's amazing to me what I missed. This is a good, good show.

It is. Each episode is better than the last. I am going to start rereading the series in a week or two. I want everything fresh for A Dance With Dragons! booty

How cool is it that Barristan the Bold is a viewpoint character in Dance? Now, if only Bronn is, too!

Wicked. I have to jump on Wikipedia and brush up on what happened in Feast. With any luck, some dummy will send me a review copy of Dance.

I wonder if fantasy mags get horror books sent to them for review? Haha.

Another great episode last night. Three episodes left in the first season, and the next one is the one GRRM wrote.

Anyone else rereading the series in preparation for A Dance With Dragons?

I am. I did not re-read AGOT because of the series (which I'm loving), but I've finished Clash of Kings and am halfway through Storm of Swords now. I'm hoping to time it so that I can read A Feast For Crows and A Dance With Dragons at the same time so I can get the experience of the full book as it was intended.

If you want it as it was intended, you're going to have to wait a while for the crazy fans to put the POV chapters in order of how they think it would have been if it had been one book. It'll happen, too. Some fans are nuts. Haha.

I'm not re-reading it, but I'm sure as hell going to catch up on Wikipedia right before Dance drops.

And yeah, the series has been great so far. It moves quickly, though, which may be my one complaint. I wish it were slower so we got to know the characters a bit better, like was allowed with Vorenus and Pullo from Rome. Of course, I know it would be impossible with Games unless the series was 40 episodes long.

Still, great stuff all around.

I'll just ignore them and read one chapter from each until I'm done. lol

It's a double edged sword. Too slow and people will get bored, too quickly and there's no time for character development and a lot gets left out. My brother in law is absolutely hooked, but every week, he keeps asking when there will be a battle. The books have a huge cast and complex plotting, which makes it a delicate thing to do. So far they've done great IMO.

Cool. I just finished A Game of Thrones. Currently about 50 pages into A Clash of Kings. HBO is doing a great job. So many scenes are practically verbatim. My only real complaint is how little screen time the Direwolves have received. Not sure why they gave Ghost a voice, either, but whatever. If that is all you can really complain about, they are doing a great job.

Ha! I missed this controversy from when the series was just beginning. It's seems a NYTimes reviewer said that ASOIAF is "boy fiction" that HBO spiced up with sex scenes to get the ladies to watch. Yeah, it was bloody. lol

Here is a sample response:

I warned my husband not to get too attached to any of the characters. (He hasn't read the books.) After this past week's episode, he turned to me and said, "I'm pissed off that you got me into this show". I said, "I warned you. Just wait until next week."

(And yes, he was kidding. He loves the show as much as I do.)

These books pissed me off so many times! I swear, at the end of every chapter I was shouting, "WHAT! THE! FUCK!!!!" Haha.

Ken, I'm so with you on that one. I'm excited for A Dance With Dragons. It will be interesting to see who else dies. Very Happy

I saw this posted on a couple of sites yesterday, and couldn't help but re-post it to my blog, so I thought I'd share here as well. Look at the picture below, and imagine that the three of them are reacting to the ending of the latest episode. Now picture the two girls as non-book readers, and picture the guy as having read the books.

I think they did a pretty outstanding job with book one. I wonder if they'll call the next season Clash of Kings or stick with Game of Thrones.

I don't think they can. They've branded it. They might do Game of Thrones: A Clash of Kings, but I don't know if that sounds right. They'll probably just stick with Game of Thrones: Season 2.

Either way, it was a very good season. The last couple episodes were fantastic, I thought. And the dragons looked pretty cool. I wonder if that threw people off, those who haven't read the books.
