Agreed. When I first heard about them making a show I thought 'oh ffs here we go...'. Then after the first teaser I was very very hopeful and they didn't disappoint.
Although, due to the show being so amazing I was extremely optimistic about the PC RTS Game being amazing as well...it's absolute shit bahahha.
Daenerys, The Hound and Jon Snow are other favourites of mine, and Sam. I really do wish Ned made it through more books, he was one of the very few truly 'good' characters.
I wish Martin would write quicker though, I can't handle another 4-5 year wait
