    Wink Game of Thrones!

    *gasps with excitement*

    Tonight the Game of Thrones series will finally premiere on HBO! Is anyone else as excited as me?

    (As an aside, if you haven't read the fantasy series that it is based off of.... you really should give them a whirl. I am 34% convinced that he will finish the series before he dies. I also am pegging him as an INTP... if anyone else has an opinion on that score.)

    I'm excited but don't plan to watch it until I can get the entire series in a boxed set. Martin's novels are fabulous!!!!

    Ha ha...

    Nothing to admire. As an impatient person, waiting for each episode would drive me crazy!

    I don't have HBO

    And I keep getting emails from companies to tell me to stop torrenting their shit. So I'll probably wait until this is on disc.

    @JocktheMotie and i just started reading this.
    we're reading up to each tv episode and watching an episode at a time.
    so basically, we've only seen 1 episode.

    today i woke up and made him listen to me read. it's getting juicy.
    my favourites are the little girl arya and jon (i totally keep on thinking
    they're gonna get together for some half-incestuous boinking).
    and tyrion! i think he's a great character.

    catelyn is so much more of a bitch in the book than she is on tv.
    also in the book sensa is more of a bitch than on tv. i really like
    reading it first and then see how it's played out on tv.

    my favourite chapter so far is the 2nd chapter of bran, i thought
    the author did such a brilliant job conveying the story using bran's
    outlook. so good! and the way jock read it was just so so perfect.

    aaaaaaand there's a khal

    I thought the first season was pretty good. I'm reading the latest book right now and, while I think there are better books out there, the series has the perfect collection of qualities for an HBO show. Obviously no show is going to do any epic novel series complete justice, but I think HBO will probably do it better than anyone else would.

    I enjoyed the books and I just watched the first episode. I never expect shows to equal their book counterparts but I enjoyed it a lot. When I get some time I will watch the rest of the season.

    A good friend of mine is REALLY into it.

    Should I jump on the Game of Thrones boogie train to fantasy land? How much is it worth it?
