    I'm not sure if anyone has been watching HBO's "Game of Thrones" based off the George R.R Martin literary fantasy series, "A Song of Ice and Fire". It premiered back in April so I'm a little late to make a topic. Anyways, here's the plot description of the series from Wikipedia:

    It's a riveting, deep storyline full of betrayal, bloodshed, loyalty and deception....I really recommend anyone who hasn't already seen it goes and checks it out. The description leaves out the Lanister and Stark families who have their own rivalry that leads to some pretty intense moments. Aside from high production values and great acting it also has Sean Bean A.K.A Boromir in it!

    I've been telling people to watch this since the first episode!

    I've seen up to episode 5 or so and it's been pretty damn good actually - obviously not as good as the book (read it, the entire series is fucking awesome) - but still good none the less.

    Read the first two books and so far it's been fairly faithful...can't wait to see the next season.

    I've been watching it every week. I can't wait for the season finale tomorrow. It's going to be epic.

    I think he's hinting you toward the fact that you:
    A.) Cannot watch a show normally
    and
    B.) Are on the internet

    If you can't figure out what to do in this case, there's a problem.

    How do you think i get to watch the latest eps of Top Gear without waiting the 6-8 months it generally takes Aussie stations to get it?

    When it premiered I was excited for it and honestly I couldn't get into it for some reason, I didn't think it was bad or anything of that nature it just didn't pull me in enough to continue watching the series. Before anyone gets pissed I did love Boardwalk Empire if that makes up for the sentence I wrote.

    You have to realize that the first episode was mainly introducing characters and setting up the story...The series has been almost exactly like all of the books in one way - they start off kinda slow, but pick up MAJOR steam about half way through and conclude with an epic finish.

    I love this show. My brother raves about the books and we've been looking forward to the show since we heard about it, and it has exceeded both our expectations. The last episode I saw was You Win or You Die, and I plan on watching the rest soon enough.

    Awesome show, even if you aren't into fantasy or medieval settings.

    I've become a big fan of this series. I heard about the hype the show was generating, and decided a couple of weeks out from the first ep to start reading the books.

    By the time the first ep was out I had read most of the first book so was safe to proceed with the show without book spoilers. I finished the 4th book last week which is pretty good timing with the 5th coming out this week.

    The show is pretty awesome, but the books are amoung the best I've ever read. I highly recommend the books to those who have already seen the show and those that are yet to watch.

    Wow. Rekkie is back. Yay.

    And glad you enjoyed both the books and the show. I'll have to read the books some time. I hold out hope that some of the Starks are still alive since from my understanding Jon Snow, Arya, and the two youngest sons and Sansa are still alive at the end of book four correct?

    Yeah there's still a few Stark's. They still make up many of the major characters, but there are new characters that come in and existing characters that take on larger roles.

    As the series go on, more and more the main characters get separated from each other and each has their own stories with other characters in it, it's a pretty amazing cast of characters.

    I'm not so much back but just visiting from time to time.
