End of book 5 really picks up. I read through books 3, 4 and 5 in about a month and now I have to wait years for the next one?! :sadno:

While reading this I kept thinking there were only going to be 6 books and kept thinking how can they cram this all in one book?! Then I realized there was gonna be a seventh


I'll keep at it - sure haven't been disappointed with the previous books!

Wow - with watching the trailers, I am now a bit sad that I've read ahead so far, though. But, this season will be intense. Can't wait to see how they will portray particular events.

Thought it was a great episode to start the season and found it way better than the walking dead finale I watched just before. Couldn't believe it was over already when the credits started rolling

I'm always a season behind on GoT. We don't have HBO and always wait until it's released on Blu-Ray to watch them. Next year March for me.

Let the Games begin... again.

A good set-up episode for the season... lots of journeys and arrivals. The episode is titled “Valar Dohaeris” which means all men must serve and it is the traditional response to the greeting, "Valar Morghulis" -all men must die.

Despite going head to head with the season finale of The Walking Dead the GOT season premiere was a ratings blockbuster. http://insidetv.ew.c...iere-ratings-3/

If this was 10 years ago, I'd be right with you. However, work, married life, and having season tickets to the Jets takes up a lot of time. After that, having US Netflix really helps out a lot for tv watching. There are still loads of shows/films I still haven't watched. My brother loaned The Wire to me about 5 months ago, only watched 2 episodes so far. Sons of Anarchy is in our queue on Netflix, probably won't get to it until late summer. It just never ends really. So as much as I'd like to watch GoT right now, there is a lot to keep me occupied until it comes out to buy next year.

I think everyone who has read the books has a strong sense of what will happen in episode 9 this season and can't wait!I'm still with Jon Snow overall.

I pictured The King Beyond The Wall as a much younger guy, maybe 30? 35? Oh well. Say, does anybody else see that GoT is a soap opera? It's a soap opera, right? Cut through the fantasy/HBO stuff, that's just setting and tone. Plotwise, it's a soap opera, I thought so even reading the books, I thought, "this reads more like a script than a novel," you can tell Martin was a screenwriter before he wrote it. The way he kills people off, then brings them back, the whole "powerful families vie for dominance" angle...classic soap opera stuff. I don't mean that as a put-down, I love that stuff.

Plotwise its not a soap opera. The plot is actually good. The only Soap Opera element is that their are multiple, co-current intersecting storylines.

And the books only read like a script if you've never seen a script before in your life.

I loved his chapters in the books. It seems like they are missing a lot of his story so that he just looks like Stannis' bitch.
