    Dammit, it's out?! This is what I get for not owning a TV, and auto-skimming over the deluge of GoT youtube links on my FB feed.

    *torrents*

    I have become hopelessly enamored of Game of Thrones, despite having not read the books. It is quite simply the best television series I have seen, perfectly cast, and the production quality is through the roof. I do not watch a great deal of television, but I find myself being really drawn into this world and its characters. As far as fantasy goes, I am enjoying it much more than LoTR (a series for which I have read the books). I want to begin the first book of GoT, perhaps when this season is over.

    Se 2 Ep 1 was pretty good.

    It was a little disjointed, but that is to be expected given the number of characters they had to introduce.

    They had to cover so many new characters that they couldn't devote enough time to any one to achieve anything meaningful.

    That being said, the episode was executed very well, and did the best it could given the constraints.

    Finally, for those asking what is/isn't in the book: in the books, every chapter focuses on the experiences of a single character and their point of view (though it is told in third person). If the following characters are not in (or witnessing) a given scene, it is not in the book: Bran, Catelyn, Daenarys, Arya, Jon Snow, Tyrion, Sansa, Davos and Theon. Every single scene in A Clash of Kings (except the prologue, which focused on the old man who was poisoned in this last episode, and the only scene he wasn't with Davos was cut anyways) has one of those characters in it.
    I have been looking forward to this season ever since the series was announced because Tyrion is my favorite by far.

    Although I am also hugely and
    looking forward to season 3.

    @spoiler, good point! I completely missed that detail.

    I'm trying to get a friend who hasn't watched Season 1 into it and whew, a lot to take in. (I think he is sufficiently hooked though. )

    I'm pissed at myself for allowing myself to watch episode 1 of season 2. I knew I would just be left wanting more, I should've waited till the season was over and have a GOT marathon.

    Waiting is the only way when it comes to the best of shows.

It’s a shame too; I honestly don't mind paying for better resolution and quality when it comes to THIS show!
    No. It won't be. The only place you can watch it online (legally) is HBOGO.com which is their streaming service... BUT you have to buy a cable subscription in order to get it. You can't just pay for their online streaming service. If they would let me just pay for the online streaming service, I would gladly give HBO my money. But forcing you to buy the cable service to get the online perks is retarded.

    This Oatmeal strip explains it very well: http://theoatmeal.com/comics/game_of_thrones

    I downloaded all of Season 1 and then bought it on DVD when it came out to support it. Ill do the same with Season 2. When HBO learns to embrace the power of internet consumers, I'll gladly give them my money.

    I'm going to be cancelling my DIRECTV service soon and I am hoping if I bundle local channels with my internet that I can still get HBO. *crosses fingers*

    Otherwise I am going to be very annoyed.
