I thought Theon's speech was fantastic. "and whoever kills that (...) with the horn" :lol:

At least they're filming now. Perhaps HBO will get Series 3 on tv a bit quicker. And I know they said they couldn't film two series back-to-back, but HBO needs to give the show the resources it needs to do that. Otherwise it'll be about 2022 by the last series!

You should probably edit that response. Even though it wasn't a book cliffhanger it was a show cliffhanger.

finally finished (catching up)

thought that battle (in ep 9) was poorly done, but the season finale made up for it

the show's strength is its story and politics and acting, whenever it gets action-y, it gets pretty lame, imo.

also really, really hate the targaryean (spelling) mother of dragons subplot. i find all of those characters to be really annoying, and their dialogue to be obnoxiously bad. "I am your kahleesi! The Mother of Dragons! Take me to The Thirteen so I can visit The House of The Undying!" -- it's so dumb. It's like when there's any detail in the story, they have some silly name for it (i.e. "The ___ "), and then they repeat 40 times per minute


but damn, the rest of the show is amazing amazing

think i'll pick up the books now.

Just finished watching the second season. Was decent.

Some of the stories are still as boring (north of the wall) but I don't think the show is doing well for Daenarys. She seems a lot more whiny that I remember when reading her stories. I get the feeling that a lot of people watching hear her say the name Targaryen but don't feel the impact of it without reading the books.

I am very glad that one of my favourite characters, Tywin, is getting treated well.
If I remember my timeline, we'll be seeing one of my other favs, Barristan Selmy, early in the next season.

Yeah, I hate her character in the series. She never does anything, all she does is go around whining and telling everyone that they need to listen to her because she's the "mother" of some dragon eggs that existed long before she was born.

if they have to write in a new character just to add star power (if theron is considered star power), then that's dumb.

i'm almost done book 1. pretty good. makes me like the characters a lot more. the imp is better in the book, and the daenarys (or whatever) character is actually enjoyable in the novel, whereas she's just terrible in the show imo

I don't think GoT needs Theron in the least bit. It's going to keep getting more and more popular.
Swords, magic and tits. They've figured this one out already.

Tits.

Edit: Depends on what the magic is, if I could be like a wizard or some crap, then that, cause that way I can preform some spell to get the other two.

Yeah I think that's one of the best parts of GoT. None of the actors are very well known, besides Ned Stark of course. Maybe Tyrion.

Makes it more believable that somebody is that character they are trying to portray.

I'm 140 pages into Book 5. So far, it's second in my eyes behind the first book. A great return to form (so far).

That's not the worst one.... there's a cliffhanger in book 4 (sword/noose) that is still unresolved.

The released chapter from book 6 is really cool to read tho.

That about 100% sums up my feelings on the show.

Overall I felt season one was quite a bit better than season 2, but things seem to still be pointing in an awesomely promising future.

NSFW in the spoiler. Huffington post actually went through Game of Thrones and made a compilation of all of the scenes involving nudity or beyond.
