Boromir is looking pretty good for a dead guy...

those that have seen it in the couple of episodes so far, are they staying pretty true to the book?

It is, though they advanced the age of some of the characters so it was less Chris Hanson worthy. They also took out small chunks of dialogue/info that may confuse some readers, but other than that it's actually shaping up quite well. The cliffhangers are actually the same as in the book; each chapter is fairly short, sweet, and gives a different character's perspective of events.

The only thing I can say that I can't get over is the actor they chose for one of the side characters, Drogo. Any and all SG:A fans will never be able to watch that show again, but it's probably a good thing since he isn't the greatest actor in the world.

Now I know why Drogo looked familiar! hes a runner lewl.

But the dothraki are just plain wrong main, they should look like friggin mongols with narrow eyes and pointy mustaches.

AND I resent the rape that went on Dany and Drogo, in the books it was more like Drogo flipped up in gentle position to Dany.

Also Cat doesnt transmit her loathing to Jhon as much as it came across in the books

Game of Thrones doesn't really strike me as the kind of game fit for either. A political sim or 4E style game fits the series better, IMO.

http://www.cyanide-studio.com/games/agot/ for the RPG which i think would be great if we played Jon Snow.

http://www.agot-genesis.com/

A RTS would be great with a army from each House and so on.

Just figured out that the RTS is at the time of Roberts Rebellion it seems. The only thing im worried about with the RTS is that it has dragons and im not sure how far back all the Dragons died before Drogon etc.

About 150 years before Drogon. During the reign of Aegon III Dragonbane.

You should enjoy the last three as much as possible, new season won't air before 2012.

I just started watching season one - HBO ran a marathon on Saturday and I tivo'ed the whole set.

Some observations:
  • The first episode has more tits and ass than any hour I've seen on television in a long time. Mrs. Bolvar, at one point remarked, "This looks like something teenaged boys would like. Who told you to watch this?" Not to worry, SoL, Bolvar didn't rat you out... But even I have to admit - they can portray the oppressive misogyny the women have to deal with in this period without being so graphic. Bolvar has a daughter, and dislikes it when young women get whore'd out for entertainment.
  • The few episodes I've seen so far since dial back the nudity a bit, which is good, and they illustrate what I hope will be a theme of the women in the story asserting themselves a little bit. I have not read the books at all, so I have no idea if this is a direction the story is destined to head towards, but it would be welcome.
  • I like the intrigue and the world in general. The scenery is fantastic. Many of the actors are fantastic. However, few of the characters are generally likeable. Snow is probably the only guy I really like. Which means he's probably doomed to die before I finish the season.

Spoiler: One of the most badass and epic characters in the series is a little girl.

Also, British television doesn't recognize the American Breast Taboo.

Do you not often watch HBO? Because it seems they have a T&A quota per season to justify the additional price of the subscription. My parents wouldn't let me watch it unsupervised when I was a kid and they were downright bohemian.

A friend recommended me the show solely on your very first point Bolvar:
Him "DUUUDE TITS EVERYWHERE!"
Me "So how are the actors and the set? Good? Is it close to the book?"
Him "There's a book about that show?"

Oh and marathon next weekend on German TV. Can't wait. The show straining to watch for a non native speaker.

No, I don't watch it often.

I subscribed earlier this year to watch "Luck" because I'm a horse racing fanatic. That hasn't worked out so well. So, I figure I'll see what else is worth watching on the network while I finish out the series I subbed for.

I've also used it to tivo movies I haven't seen yet. But otherwise, I rarely watch much TV at all, actually. I TiVo a handful of shows, watch them at my leisure, and then watch football in the fall. That's it. Probably less than three hours a week.

If it's Stark's little girl who, thus far, reminds me of my daughter, I'm OK with it.

Post-pilot, I think the only consistent nudity is in Daenerys scenes. And that random prostitute invented for the show, Roz? I think. Otherwise it's just a random boob shot here and there.

All the scenes shot in the capital city were filmed in Malta, by the way. Some of my friends were extras.

There was this one time I was exploring an old British fort I'd broken into and walked across a plank connecting the roofs of two buildings. I later watched Game of Thrones and realised that the plank/bridge I'd walked across was a prop from the series.

It's OK... I keep a can of Gay Repellent handy, just in case.

That's actually kind of cool. I've heard they film a lot in Ireland as well.

Dunno about the rest of you guys, but that scene where they actually have a five-year-old breastfeeding sort of creeped me out.




Tyrion's lines later on more than made up for it, though.
