Wow... i'm impressed. I've been telling everyone I can to watch the shows, hoping to guarantee that it continues to get made.

My biggest worry is that he will die before he can finish writing the last 2 books. He's been finishing a book every 5-6 years, with two more to go, and he's 63 now... That would make him 70-75ish when the series is done... I wish he would dedicate himself to the last two books for the next 4-5 years and get them done.

Likewise. A Dance With Dragons took FAR too long to even get a real release date. I'm genuinely worried he is finding it hard to piece together all the storylines and arcs so that they fit together perfectly.

About to watch the second episode! YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Brilliant episode. Summer (Bran's Wolf) is so awesome. That was a very well done scene, exactly how I pictured it when reading the books.

Tyrion's 'actor' is fantastic, every scene he is in I really enjoy. Tyrion is one of my favourite characters though.

Slight spoilers below

Wow. The list of characters upon whom I wish a slow and painful death has increased exponentially with this episode.

After the first episode I wasn't sure about this show. The beginning and ending were great, but every thing else in between I felt dragged.

Enjoyed the 2nd ep much more after I realised how the show works. Its heavily character driven and now I see it's all about the different families and characters and all of the secrets and lies (I haven't read the book(s)).

That little girl (Sean Beans daughter) is a brilliant little actress.

Can't wait for the next ep and can't wait to see those monsters/creatures in the woods again, they were savage.

It's extremely character driven yeah, each 'house' is vying for power. Nearly ever character has hidden agenders (the Starks are by far the closest to being the protaganists in the series)

The opening episode's first omen summed it up pretty well, with the Direwolf killing, and in turn being killed by, the Stag. The former being the house sigil of the Starks, the latter being of house Baretheon.

It gets FAR deeper, and more ****ed up than you could believe. And it does delve deeper into the 'fantasy' element as the books go on. Although you're not going to see Elves and Orcs and all that stuff, or powerful mage wars.

There are TONS of story arcs, plots, sub plots, character plots, secrets, twists etc to come. It's going to be a crazy season that's for sure.

Plenty of deep characters to come as well. I can honestly say there isn't one character in A Song of Ice and Fire (book series name) that is one dimensional, and that makes the books extremely special as there are TONS of main characters.

Yea, I think I was mislead at first, because I thought that this was basically going to be a tv series similar to LOTR with much more fantasy, how ever, it's completely different.

I was gob smacked at the end of the first episode, that shows the potential of how crazy and unpredictable some of these characters can be.

Had my doubts after the first ep, but now I've watched the second and familiarised myself with the show, I'm hooked. I also like how that so far, the end of each ep has left you kind of with a cliff hanger, to make sure you crave for next weeks ep.

In-freaking-deed. She's probably my second favorite character after these two episodes only trumped by Tyrion... God, that guy is awesome (character and actor).

So far I want everyone killed that is named Lannister (except for Tyrion, Tyrion for King!). Plus I want Arya's wolf to come back and castrate the King's son. Though that probably wouldn't work because it seems he doesn't have any balls to begin with.

And how dare they end the episode like this?!

Yeah, I guess I'm hooked.
