Got my girlfriend the books. Once she reads them, I'm sure she'll be begging me to watch the entire TV series over a span of two days.

You should watch it, Kace. It's like Lord of the Rings with swearing and dragons and nudity.

Never heard of it! Not much of a reader, but I may have to check out the TV series.

My favourite television show by far!

I watched the first couple of episodes when it first came on and for the first time in my life, it got me into reading books. Ive read all of them now up until the last quarter of Dance with Dragons.

The first series mirrored the books but the last episode swayed so much from the book its completely changed the show. Which i guess will make it more interesting for me now i dont know whats happening. Worth checking out.

Like Mish said, its like Lord of the Rings for TV but with Dragons, excessive swearing and nudity, and more graphic.

Nice to see you around here Mish!

I read all the books except the last one that just came out, by the fourth one I was burnt out and could barely keep going and never gave book 5 a chance. The TV show on the other hand was great in season 1 and I have season 2 piling up on the DVR to watch when I get a lot of time without small people hanging around.


Now I love a good skinemax but shows like Spartacus and Weeds and GoT seem to just toss it in for sport, oh well it's still great tv.

I don't like it. Could be my general disdain for anything british. My roommate watches the shit out of it, though.

I thought the white walkers at the end of Season 2 looked pretty good. Kind of a cop-out to introduce zombies into anything, so hopefully they actually have a motive or a purpose.

Its going to be interesting how they do the story with them as the book was quite different in that aspect. I'm looking forward to Season 3 all the same tho.

It can't be a copout to add zombies when zombies were in the book...just not so prominently...I so far like the liberties they've taken as well as the fact that George RR Martin and HBO have said that he's already told him where to go with the show to get it to the proper end in the event he dies before finishing the books, that's cool.

I'm fairly certain he said it's supposed to be 7 books, so 2 more. Although since it was originally only supposed to be 3 books, who knows if that will change or not.



He also writes one of the scripts per season of the show so far.

Ah, let's hope he finishes them before he dies. Would hate for it to not be ended properly.

Oh right, why's there so many differences to the books then?!

I guess cause HBO said so...really I assume comes down to money and the number of episodes HBO is willing to make a year.

I suppose so. I feel some of the differences like how they handled Daenarys last season and when Jon Snow was captured, we're much better in the book. I don't know about you?!
