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. ;)

I really cannot wait for this.

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.

    • New rumors of live-action TV series surface
      in Star Wars Saga
      New rumors have surfaced suggesting that the Star Wars live action television show is not yet dead. Details are still absent from these new rumors, but it is believed that Disney intend to produce a series to keep fans occupied in between movies, in a similar manner to Marvel's Agents of SHEILD.

      According to these latest rumours, the show would feature previously established characters from outside the main movies of the Star Wars saga, and would likely be produced for Disney's ABC television network.

      It's best to take this information with a gargantuan serving of salt, as it has now been a full ten years since we were originally teased by George Lucas about the show being in the works in 2005. Last year it was reported that the show had entered the casting phase, but a lack of further casting rumors since then seem to indicate that this was not the case.
