Game of Thrones fan thread!
 


Didn't see one here, so here it is. :twisted:

Season 2 just ended. I don't have HBO, so I'll have to use other means to get a hold of some of the episodes.

I would sympathize with the Starks, but it must be in their hard-coded DNA to do something stupid and then die. I keep pulling my hair over some of the stuff they do. It's like they value honor so much that intelligence and common sense are optional, if not non-existent. Even then they betray each other with disastrous results. UGH!

I'll post some poll up later. Until then, feel free to discuss, speculate, taunt, jibe, moan, etc.

I love the show; I've seen a couple of episodes and the its very well done, excellent acting and costumes. I haven't gotten into it as much as Breaking Bad or LOST but I need to watch some more episodes.

Awesome show. Long wait ahead of us, damn it. I got so hooked up, that im getting a book.

I wont read this therad until i finish the 2nd book. Unless the 3rd season starts before I finish the 3rd book. the 3rd book is superl;ong so they may make two seasons out of the third book.

martin has said he plans on finishing the saga (books 6 and 7) before the series overtakes the books. I know he is close to finishing the 6th book so it may happen.

3rd book is long but by far the best, IMHO. The nice thing about Martin is that no one is safe from buying the farm. I really enjoy the show but the books are much better. The TV writers changed up enough plot elements to make season 2 slightly surprising for me, which was nice.

Reading the books is a must - it's soooooo in depth and covers so much watching the series actually enhances the books. They have done an excellent job but there is so much stuff that happens in the books that add background and even more detail........read the books now or at least at the same time.
I also really really doubt GRRM is anywhere near finishing book 6.....he has said before thousands and thousands of times that he is on no schedule and the books will come when they come - he will not make any comments or possible release dates for any future books. Check out his website and learn more georgerrmartin.com

Just got into it, watched the first season this past week. Love the show, going to have to find a way to watch the second season online now.

Last 2 episodes for season 2 were amazing

soyizgood 06-07-2012 07:19 PM

Book 3 will consume seasons 3 and 4. I am thinking of reading books 1 and 2.

Dilettante 06-07-2012 07:30 PM

Saw some episodes and I really enjoyed them.

The presence of Emilia Clarke makes the show 200% better though.

soyizgood 06-07-2012 07:33 PM

You got that right!

I still think Daenerys whines too much and has gotten a few lucky breaks, but she showed she has a twisted side to her in the season 2 finale.

The presence of Lena Headey makes the show 300% better for me :)

I had an instant crush on her. Most beautiful closeups I've seen in TV fiction for a long time.

Nice bottom too.

Yeah, she's fine, but Emilia Clarke has the kind of beauty that leaves me hypnotized.

Talisa (Oona Chaplin) has probably the best *** seen so far. :twisted:

^ This. The only drawback to this whole thing is that it took Martin five years to write book 4 and another six years after that to write book 5. On top of that, books 4 and 5 were regarded by most fans as being weaker than 1-3. I just hope it isn't another ten years before he finishes the series.

My question is What happens to those dragons ? if those dragons grow up and under the power of the princess, she will be invincible. Is that not true ?

It would have to take some time for the dragons to mature. That and she'd actually need to own land to feed those things.

Midway through "A Storm of Swords". Awesome books and awesome series. Guess I love diversity, as my top three TV series are (in order):
1) Game of Thrones
2) How I Met Your Mother
3) Supernatural
