luckbox this thread is for the TV show, if you want to hint at things from the book feel free to open a thread to discuss it but it would be appreciated if this thread could stick to things we have already seen.

Sorry about that, I genuinely didn't realize I was spoiling. Thanks for cleaning up my mess.

I'm debating whether or not to read em. Should I...and how many in the series. Remember after I watched LOTR I finished all three...took me an entire month...lolz!

Then again I kind of like not knowing what would happen. Never did I think the main character would lose his head so to speak. That's like saying Tony Soprano gone in the first season then the focus would be on Paulie Walnuts or Sylvio Dante...hah...hah! Great series though!

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Read the books. As good as the series is, you are not getting the full story or impact with it. There is a lot missing, especially in character development. As an adaption, it's beyond what I hoped it would achieve, it's fantastic in every way. But it isn't the books by a long shot

5 books in the series (so far, 7 planned)! MUCH faster paced than LOTR's, and Martin doesn't take 2-3 pages to describe every mountain range/cave/flower/blade of grass like Tolkien does (I love his style of writing, but still) so you'll probably get through them a lot quicker.

Books 1-3 are just amazing. Book 4 is a bit...well I found it hard going. Book 5 is getting back on track, and i expect book 6/7 to blow all previous books away.

It's too late for me. I don't want to read the books. I'm really enjoying the series. I don't want to draw comparisons and be disappointed with one or the other. My pleasure reading and adult tv time are severely limited. I'm going to stick with watching.

Is it early? I watched it on a stream yesterday. Figured it's old by the time I can find it.

I'm not sure, it says that the air date for ep 2 is next week, so it has to be early.

Loved the ending, but hated it at the same time, god damn cliff hanger endings.
