im watching it right now, still early on, one good murder scene off the bat and i dont wanna say is slow after that, but first episodes have that awkward time of setting things up. but so far its not bad at all.


Edit: just finished and lookin real good! violence might be a lil lacking, but plenty of nudity to make up for it, and then how they ended the episode!!! dayum! this im definatly gonna set my DVR to record.

If they make this series true to the book, it could beat Spartacus/Dexter/Lost anything in my opinion, it has that much potential.
Excuse me?

LOL, in the 'world' A Game of Thrones is set, seasons last for years, not months. At the start of the show their Summer is coming to a close. And with Winter, always comes war, famine, death, ****, treachery, and other awesome stuff.

The deaths start off slow, but believe me, the author is absolutely merciless. Just wait for people to realise who's behind what, and when the Direwolves are fully grown. Garaunteed there will be some BRUTAL death seasons that will rival Spartacus.

The only thing that's weird is Daenerys in the books is 13. The one getting married to, and then pounded from behind by, that giant Dothraki 'Khal Drogo'. I'm damn glad they gave the part to an of age actress, or it would of made very illegal watching haha.

Nice place to end the first episode, Bran being thrown by Jaimie Lannister after Bran discovered he was sexing it up with the Queen (his twin sister)

So far, the show is staying very true to the books.


Inter - Dexter is based on a book series as well. Same as A Game of Thrones. I've read both. Game of Thrones has more potential than ANY tv series I've ever watched. I'm not exaggerating. If done well (and it seems it is) it'll blow Dexter out of the water. All a matter of opinion of course, and they are both completely different.

Unless you've read the books, you have no clue how true that sentence is. Seriously. The word epic gets thrown around these days. Here it fits.

George R.R Martin is an absolute genius in creating worlds. The scope and scale his series has, makes other giant fantasy saga's look bland and small.

Am I excited about this show? You have no idea
