I thought it was incredibly well done, nearly exactly to how I pictured it in the books.
I liked it, but my overwhelming anger clouded my vision a bit so i would have liked it more if what happened a bit earlier did not happen

Ok, so I marathoned 7 eps yesterday and finished the series lol. I have to say, this is in the top three when it comes to best television shows I have ever seen, incredible. That's all I can say, I really can't fault the show. You get so caught up in the world and the characters, I couldn't stop watching it yesterday.

And the ending to the finale, are you ******* kidding me?! (Mike Goldbergs voice)



That scene could have potentially failed hard, but they executed it perfectly, amazing.

As soon as I heard they were making the TV show adaption, that is the ONE scene I was worried about, and the one scene I was looking forward to the most. They...*******...nailed it.

They really did ******* nail it!

I'm going to buy a couple of the books later. I can't believe we have to wait a whole ******* year for the next series.

Edit: Kry, everyone goes on about how when it comes to book/film/tv adaptations, the books are always far superior, would you say that's the case with GOT?

This would be the first book I've actually read in years.

Simple answer - Yes.

The TV adaption is fantastic, more than I could of wished for. But there is alot story and character development missing that you just don't get on the screen that you do from the books. I was extremely sceptical and thought an adaption would be impossible due to the scale of the story, but they made it work.

On the other hand, I'd choose watching the show over reading Feast for Crows (the 4th book) anyday. Whilst it was decent, it's the weakest in the series. The newest book 'A Dance of Dragons' is out on the 12th of July, and even though it's predacessor was the weakest in the series I'm really not worried about this one at all (I'd explain but don't want to spoil anything)

The first 3 books are genius and an absolute joy to read though. Tyrion, Ned, Arya, Daenerys(just using my favourite characters here) chapters really give another kind of incite into their personalities that the show just cannot do. In one of the episodes they skipped entire war scenes (when Jaime is captured), in the books these are covered in detail and are extremely fast paced.

Honestly, I can't recommend these books enough. There's a reason 'A Song of Ice and Fire' is at the #1 spot on nearly every single 'best fantasy series' lists.

Sweet. I ordered Game of Thrones from Amazon earlier, should be delivered tomorrow! If I enjoy it, which I'm sure I will do, I'll order the rest of the collection.
