    People tend to fall prey to a good sham. When I am finished with this thread, they will think that 'erm' refers to no more than mumbling. Once that is achieved, I will no longer have any reason to be jealous. So, actually, it does help.

    I think it's great, even though it's not really my cup of tea. I'm about halfway through the first book but thus far, it's sticking fairly close.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I've been watching it so far and although it's not my favorite TV show of all time, I do quite like series that are basicly big movies and not too episodic in nature. So I'll give it big points for that!

    Also, the effects are movie standard and the acting is quite decent. But that is seen more and more in tv series nowadays so it's not the only one following those high standards.

    I'd argue that bestowing that title ten episodes in (I think it was only like 8 in when this was first posted) is jumping the gun, or implies one has seen very few TV shows of any real quality or of this timbre.

    I've read the series and the first book is not my favorite. It's not a bad book by any means at all... It's just the author has to spend so much time setting up the series with backstory and motivations, etc... The second book hits the ground running and the third book.... I won't say anything further.

    I was impressed with how well they condensed down the monstrosity that is GoT into a coherent 10 episode arc. You DO miss a lot of extra back story... but they touched on a lot of the more important points quite well.

    What you didn't see enough of was Ned's thoughts as he thought about his sister's death... extremely important to the entire series if one of my hunches is correct as to where the series is headed.

    I am on pins and needles for the 5th book to finally arrive next Tuesday.

    It was alright. To be cliche - The books were better.

    6 years later...

    I haven't seen The Wire or anything, but Game of Thrones definitely got really good S4 on imo. If the first three weren't good though, I wouldn't be watching it, now would I?
