Damn. I guess we'll have to wait until the next episode to catch up with Arya and Bran and Co.
Hello, Dee.Yep, I was happy with first episode. I was going to read the books before I started watching, but then had a chance to watch it for free, before I bought the first book. Now, I'm so caught up in the show, I'm hesitating reading them, because I don't want to know what happens.Cersei is definitely a piece of work...she does what she needs to survive. One of the things I find fascinating about her is how brutal she can be, and yet she's horrified by her son. Interesting psychology at work.
Don't read them! They are really great, but I find myself comparing the show with them...sucks sometimes. This season is going to be great...as I mentioned above, it follows the best book by far.I read an interview with George Martin, and he said he writes the characters as grey as possible...I think they are doing a great job of translating that to TV...Cersei...she is probably the closest to a true villain on the show.
There seems to be way too many shows where they don't show Daenerys at all, or just once near the end or something. I realize there are a ton of characters in the show, and spread out all over the place, and they can't fit them all in every show.. but Daenerys is one they need to try to fit in as much as they can. I always look forward to her story, and I hate when it never comes on. To me, she's the star of the show.. her, and her dragons.. they need to be treated as such.I'm fairly new to the show, as I didn't have HBO until very recently, and I did a couple of marathon sessions with watching a full season during a weekend, twice, to catch up. Now I have to wait a week just to watch one episode.. I don't know if I can handle that. I almost feel like I should wait til it's all over then watch it all at once again.. but I know I wouldn't be able to hold out.Oh.. I also wanna see more of the White Walkers. They seem to be what everyone's afraid of, and yet barely get any screen time at all. I wanna see what they're up to.
That was an excellent episode last night....I wish I didn't know where it's all headed
You don't thought, right ? Aren't there 2+ books left to be written ?Also, how faithful to the books has the series been ? Are the characters dying at the right times ? (I tried reading the first book, and had to quit after 80 pages.)
Yeah..I meant what was going to happen this season. The series has been pretty faithful to the books, although there have been some characters who are already dead in the books but still alive on the show, and vice versa. The writer of the books has told the show creators roughly were things are going and who ends up on the Iron Throne, just in case. Martin is in his 70's
I'm enjoying the show immensely, though Martin looks like the world's oldest and biggest dungeon master.
I am not watching Game of Thrones until someone assures me the Boy King is dead. Funny how a story boils my blood everytime I see that little bastard.I had a hard enough time with Frank Gallagher.
