Just fiished Season 2 episode 4. King Joffrey is one sick, mean basterd. Now his mom's tappin her cousin while her brothers locked up and Tirion knows about it. Can't wait for episode 5 to see what the red headed fire queen just gave birth to .
Love Tyrion - what a smart, clever little f--ker! :cool:
It's hard for me to watch shows but I did start watching this. I just know what the story is or who the characters are.
I think I'll read it if it's widely available.
^ agree, the books are on my short list, maybe I should try reading one on the iPad... I haven't done that yet.
I'm half way through season 1 and I'm liking it more and more.
This is a fantastic show and I'm glad it was brought to my attention.
Damn that last episode Sunday had a kickass ending.
Ron, you meant T&A ending? :smile:
Well yeah...and the very end right before the credits rolled.
I haven't seen the show...but I've read the first book and actually just started the second one. The first one was great, and the second one is seeming to be very good so far.
Just watched the 1st two episodes of season 1 on dvd from Netflix. The Mrs was unhappy that there are only 2 on the dvd and said to get the rest ASAP. Thanx to this thread for the heads up on this series! Between this and Boardwalk Empire I'm almost tempted to pick up HBO.
Seen episode 5 last nite. I wonder who Arya Stark is gonna use her remaining 2 picks on.
I thought she kinda wasted the first pick. But ya can hardly blame her.
I read the book and just put this in my Netflix que :)
Loved episode 6 last night, but a plot development had me scratching my head. Why did they have someone steal Danerys' dragons to get her to enter the House of the Undying instead of, as in the book, have her enter to seek answers?
Also, they turned Jeyne Westerling's character into Talisa from Volantis. Not sure why.
Seems kind of cheap and obvious to me, sort of TV-ish.
Man, lots of gore last night!
Also, looks like Bran and Rickon has escaped Winterfell, but I didn't see the introduction of the characters Meeren and Jojen.
Two down, one left for Arya. I see the plot thicking as Jon Snow snuggles with the wildling.
How about some spoiler alerts for those back on season 1?! haha
I love this show. It started out a bit gory for my taste, but all in all, I like it. My wife and I started watching the first season on the touchpad on a flight to Portland, and after the first 15 minuts realized people all around us probably thought we were watching porn. :lol:
Another excellent show, although of a different vein, is Breaking Bad, now in its 6th season. Crazy good. And some of the best character development ever. For Netflix-havers, this is a must see.
IMHO one of the best elements of the series is casting, especially Peter Dinklage as Tyrion, Lena Headey as Cersei, and whoever that guy is that plays Tywin Lannister.
Interested to see who is gonna play Ramsey Bolton, Roose Bolton's son. That character is one mean, nasty dude.
Wow!! Never thought Theon Greyjoy would get that nasty, still wondering if that really is Bran & Rickon that he burned to a crisp. I was thinking Bran's character would develope more.
Yeah, I don't think it was Bran. Surely he would have had 4 bodies there. The plot sure is thickening, though.
Theon is really a petty, incompetant douche bag. He screws up everything he attempts.
Prepare for some major plot turns! Bwwaa-haa-haa-haa-haaaaah!
Episode 7 has several fairly significant deviations from A Clash of Kings. Some are understandable, some I don't get.
This season Danerys is coming off like a real Diva! And Cersei - those scense between her and Tyrion, and her and Sansa were actually touching. In the book she's more of a cold hearted, egotistical megalomaniac. I'm betting she'll revert to form.
Only two episodes left this season, with the last being two hours. What an ending it's gonna be!
Just received my blu-ray copy too :) Looking forward to watching it
