Robert's been watching it, I just saw my first episode last night. I was pretty interested in the show, but I'm lost as to what all is happening!

If you have HBO you should have access to HBO on demand and the episodes should be available on there

Sky Atlantic is in the middle of showing the entire first series over two days here, so I've been recording it all to watch. Currently only up to the second episode but I'm really enjoying it so far. Missed it when it was on before because we didn't have satellite then.

Also it has the most epic title sequence ever.

I have been meaning to read A Song of Fire and Ice for a long while but never got round to it, but now I'll definitely have to!

Hmm... do I buy the second book and risk spoiling the TV series? Decisions decisions...

I've read all the books, so I know what's going to happen, but it's still cool watching it play out. I also like as a new location is introduced in the show, the area pops up in the opening sequence.

I did like when that guy had molten gold poured on his head...but other than that, it's a time period I hope never to be transported back to via temporal rift, stargate, etc. :p

Lol, where the height of technology is the longbow, and people bathed maybe once a year, good dental hygiene was non existent, and you'd get suspicious looks for talking about planets revolving around their sun in far away galaxies....no thanks, I'll pass. :p

I love the show! I've read the first 4 books, and debating on when to start the 5th.

Season 3 is good so far, but there's just to much book to try and cram in 10 episodes.

I know. And season 4 is going to be interesting since books 4 & 5 start at the same time.

Mmm. I love all the shock and rage on Facebook, Buzzfeed, etc. regarding the Red Wedding. Delicious.

Looking forward to seeing how they do Lady Stoneheart. ;)

I love this show. Epic title sequence, great characters, great chemistry between charaters, great acting (even from the child actors). I think my three favorite characters are Tyrion, Danaerys, and Arya.

Also, the reactions to the Red Wedding are awesome! I've watched this one several times, and it still makes me laugh:

I heard a hilarious metaphor the other day. They said Joffrey is like Justin Bieber on bath salts.

I had steered clear of this phenomenon for quite some time, for the sole reason that I was afraid if I picked it up, it would consume me.  Oops.  I started watching the show in July when I was traveling for work and then proceeded to watch all three seasons over the course of five days.  :p

 

When I realized that I wasn't coming home for at least another three weeks at that point, I picked up the books.  I'm now half-way through book five.  It's pretty awesome.  Knowing what's to come in the show hasn't really spoiled anything for me.  The show is just so well done.  And they'll take small liberties, and I'm cool with that.  The overall story remains the same.

 

What's crazy to me, the Red Wedding was more violent and surprising in the show than it was in the book.  In the book you could see it coming a mile away.  Guess that's the biggest difference to me.  There's tons of foreshadowing in the books, just because you know what the person is thinking.  It was way more obvious in the book that, despite being an excellent battle commander, Robb was still a 16 year old boy at heart, and didn't want anything but Frey's men.  That being said, I still want that douche to die. ;)

Nor can I.  The only good thing about having to wait until April 6 is that's the week after The Walking Dead finale.  So I don't have to choose between the two as they would otherwise be on at the same time.

      We are a week removed from the new season dropping on Netflix.  I'm really excited.  Poor Will needs to catch a break. 
    • Michelle Rejwan appointed SVP of live action TV and film

      Lucasfilm has appointed Michelle Rejwan to the post of Senior Vice President of Live Action Development & Production, to oversee the future ofof Star Wars live action TV and film projects.
      Rejwan has worked with JJ Abrams on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming final installment of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Her other film credits with Abrams include Star Trek Into Darkness and Super 8.
      The Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series are currently under production for Disney+, and more Star Wars films are in the pipeline, so Rejwan will undoubtedly have input into these projects as she undertakes her new role within Lucasfilm.
    • Star Wars 2022 will be from Game of Thrones creators

      Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that the Star Wars film scheduled for release in 2022 will be from the showrunners and creators of Game of Thrones. David Benioff and DB Weiss's TV adaptation of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series is currently drawing to a close, and the pair are apparently already hard at work on their first foray into Star Wars.
      This announcement has come as a surprise to many who were expecting the next film to be from Rian Johnson, and has cast new doubt on the status of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi director's new trilogy, although Kathleen Kennedy stated last month that Benioff and Weiss were working closely with Johnson to ensure continuity between their respective projects.
      It was announced back in 2018 that Benioff and Weiss would be making their mark on Star Wars, although at the time it was unclear how many films the two were working on. This is still unclear, as Iger has only confirmed that the 2022 movie will be theirs although two more Star Wars movies are scheduled for 2024 and 2026.
      Although we have a large gap between Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and 2022, Disney will be plugging the gap with their Disney Plus exclusive shows The Mandalorian and another series following Rogue One's Cassian Andor.
      We look forward to hearing more news soon.
    • New images from The Mandalorian

      The first season of The Mandalorian will be available to Disney Plus subscribers as soon as it launches on 12 November 2019, it has been announced. A second series has already been ordered by Lucasfilm.
      New images (see below) have also been released, and attendees at Celebration Chicago were treated to some behind the scenes footage and an exclusive clip of the Jon Favreau live-action Star Wars TV show, that were cut from the live stream, but there was no official trailer shown.
      The Mandalorian follows a mysterious lone gunfighter (played by Pedro Pascal) on the outer reaches of the galaxy, about five years after the Battle of Endor seen in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. The titular character's true name is unknown, and he is said to be of "questionable moral character". 
      Gina Carano will play a former Rebel shock trooper named Kara Dune, with Carl Weathers portraying Greef Marka who heads up a guild of bounty hunters.  Werner Herzog appears to be some kind of Imperial administrator who hires the Mandalorian for a mission. Other supporting cast members include Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, and Nick Nolte.
      The show is said to have a Western feel to it and Favreau has said he would include elements from other parts of the Star Wars universe such as the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, and has he has also taken some inspiration from the Star Wars Legends expanded universe.
