Default Game of Thrones

Or, if you prefer, "ATTENTION NERDS!"

Is anyone else planning on watching tonight's premier of Game of Thrones? I haven't read any of the books, and I doubt I will, but the series looks cool. Post up your reviews if you watch it tonight.

Good, or at least it's entertaining. The ruthlessness of the characters is off the charts.

Good show for sure. I'll definitely keep watching. Watching this and Camelot should keep me entertained until Dexter comes back on.

I thought it was pretty good. Guess I'll have to wait and see what comes out of it.

I had no idea about anything on this, but I caught some of it HBO last night.

They should have let the scene with Daenerys and Khal Drogo play out further.

For real. They were basically 30 seconds away from an awkward internet first-timer scene anyway. Might as well show them titties again.

this second episode was boring and moving along at a snails pace! this show is gonna be canceled after the first season unless they start using more action scenes.

I heard season 2 was already greenlit. I assume they're just following the books. Just take your ritalin and be patient.

Got HBO this weekend to watch this show. I'm hooked for sure. Those blonde people (queen, her brother, her son) are all some cruel mofos. Anybody else think that prince has exactly zero DNA from the king? I'm betting he's the product of that brother/sister combo. :shudder:

I'm really liking the dwarf, and John Snow could be kinda cool if he would grow a spine and quit feeling sorry for himself.

Stark seems like a good guy. Like, too good to be a politician. I'm wondering if he's going to go for his daughter being married off to that little prick prince. I can see the youngest Stark daughter offing him. That'd be cool.

Also, with the "I'll tell you about your mother" bit to Snow, I'm thinking Stark is gonna die before he sees him again.

Obviously I haven't read the books yet, but it's an interesting, brutal story so far.

No shit!!

She said, "no."
He looked at her with a "bitch, are you fucking retarded?!" look.
Next scene he's all about some riding.

Man, all of you are missing out, the books are excellent IMHO. And I personally don't think the HBO special detracts from them. For me I love seeing the maps having a visual reference for all I have in my head. Book to film I think it is a good transfer. There is so much to the characters the series has no choice but to go slow. As it is you are missing out on some things if your not paying attention, I would say HBO did a good job of turning detailed writing into interpetable scenes.
Keep an eye on "The Hound", he is my favorite character, he's a onion.

Drogo and his queen....lol what is to say? Border line porn?

Here is your "NERDS UNITE":

It's getting darker, I'll give it that. Also, I think they're putting too much into this rivalry between the prince and the younger daughter. My prediction? They'll end up resolving things, and that's the daughter he'll marry.
