Damn, anyone else see the first episode of this show?

Sure, I may be biased, because I'm such a huge fan of the books, but usually when a TV adaptation of a book has so far been this well received by an obsessive fan base, you must know it's doing something right.

It's on HBO every Sunday night. Not that I'm ever going to have the desire to get HBO, but that's what Torrents are for. I'll, of course, get the DVDs when they eventually come out.

I enjoyed it. Did not know it was based on a book. Am really intrigued in the rest of the series.

You should really stick with it. And since it is quite faithfully true to the book, the primary purpose of the first episode was character introduction. It really starts to pick up after the first one.

Most online reviews have actually said that the first episode is the least interesting of the first 6.

I'm glad someone checked it out. It was just announced that it was renewed for a second season. Each season is going to be one book. Book 5 (out of a planned 7) is being released this July.

Anyone still watching this show? It's three episodes in, and as a fan of the book, I still think they're doing a fucking amazing job with turning it into a show.

Tyrion is such a badass.

I forgot about the new episode on Sunday. I'll have to watch it. I thought the 2nd episode was quite boring though through most of it.

Yeah, the second of the episodes was the weakest for some one that hasn't read the books.

It's based on a lot of important character interaction and goodbyes, and since it's only 2 episodes in, the goodbyes didn't mean as much as they should have. It means a lot more when you get the more fleshed out introduction of the book, but I think they did the best they could.

It's hard to look at this show from the perspective of someone new to it. It all starts coming together soon, and the shit really hits the fan. Just remember in this story that no one is safe.

StrikeGently has been posting the episodes but I haven't watched... seems like I might be saddened if I really dig it then go away and can't watch it for another 4 months.

Yeah I understand it is all about building characters and whatnot. 3rd episode was good, I can tell some shit is going to start happening pretty soon. I like the end of this with the girl taking the sword lessons and at the end the sounds of actual swords clashing instead of wooden ones. Nice fore-sight there.

I haven't read the books, but I didn't finish the first episode. I thought it was kind of boring and cliche.

It has a slower more deliberate start, which doesn't initially translate into an ideal format for a television show, because they're keeping it pretty close to the book. The all out killing starts this next week though.

I don't see how this show is cliche in anyway. Especially the end of the first episode, but you didn't even bother to get to that point, oh well.

This is getting better and better. The end of this newest episode was fucking sweet. I can't wait til the Dothraki start playing a bigger role. I'm hoping they steam roll that fuckin kingdom and kill everyone.

Hehe, yes, the ending of that episode was insane when I first read it. They only briefly mentioned it in the show, but in the book they went into more detail about how they can't carry weapons and spill blood in their holy city. Well, they didn't spill any blood.

The last two episodes have been so good. I won't say anymore, because a lot of unexpected shit is still going to happen, and they only have 4 episodes left.

Shit, this series just keeps amping it up. So much shit is going on, and so many people are getting fucked over in various ways.

It's interesting going back to this point when you do know what will happen.

A lot of shit still needs to happen in the remaining two episodes, but don't expect everything to be neatly tied up just yet, this is still only the first book.

There are going to be 7 total. So, there's a lot of story to go.

The fifth one is being released next month. Each one of them is quite a bit longer than the first one as well, at only a measly 800ish pages, hehe.

So, anyone watch the rest of the season? Lots of shit happened, and there were quite a few pissed off fans of the show because they were expecting a nice and friendly outcome.

Yep, it's going to be quite the wait for season 2, but you'll be okay. You can always read the books.

It won't be that long comparatively, though, because I've been waiting for 4 and a half years for the book coming out next month. He took his time with this one.

Oh, and Rihanna is fucking hot.

I don't have TV, but was at someone's house recently who had free HBO for the month and the show seemed interesting, but didn't want to watch it since I'd like to start from the beginning. I'll probably surf the web for shitty recordings of it
