Very god.  I just watched it last night.  For us Americans it's funny seeing Mark Addy as the king.  I used to seeing him in Still Standing and The Full Monty.

Episode 2 tonight!

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I've watched an episode and a half.  It's a fucking awesome show....but it's blasphemous to claim it's better than LotR.

Although I'm guessing that starting with the second episode wasn't a good idea.

I don't think it's blasphemous.  The books are imo markedly superior to the LotR novels.

Whether or not the TV show will supersede the movies will be interesting.

It's not blasphemous to claim it, especially if you haven't actually read the books.

But how have you seen an episode and a half, and started with the second episode?  There have only been two thus far.

That was even better than the first episode. Teared up at Nymeria and Lady, which is... very unlike me. The actors are all wonderful, I wasn't completely sold on the first episode (despite very much enjoying it) but I'm growing attached to these characters all over again.

Sean Bean and Peter Dinklage better get Emmy nominations. And I love Masie Williams too :lol

In a crowning moment of heartwarming, Sophie Turner (Sansa)'s family adopted the dog that played Lady (the direwolf that was killed at the end). :laugh:

Also, this recap is hilarious, in a good way :rollin :rollin

Sansa is just as annoying as she was in the books and the actress that plays her portrays her character perfectly. She's either an amazing performer or she's just as annoying irl :D

I saw the full second episode last night with my brother, and found a sneak peak online showing the first 20 minutes of the first episode.

Wasn't impressed with the first episode (read a couple of the books), thought it was really thin, but have to say the second episode was much better.  Can't wait for next week!

Yeah first episode was really boring for an usual 'first episode' though obv the writers cant really alter the original story. Lots (I mean LOTS) of boobs and f*cking though! Hope it picks up later on, I should pick up the books as well.

So, I just checked IMDB and

Sean Bean's only listed for three episodes, so that means Robert's death and Eddard's execution will happen next episode. That's rather quick to deal with that, don't you think?

Well there are ten episodes, I can't imagine them doing that.... that would suck though. 

By the way, major major spoilers in that last one - don't risk it if you haven't read the book!

IMDB isn't accurate. It also lists Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) as three episodes, and Charles Dance (Tywin) as eight episodes, both of which we know aren't happening. Don't take it too seriously.

Ya the wikipedia page (not that that is any more reliable) for the show shows the title of Episode 9 as "Baelor."  Anyone familiar with the books should feel confident that the event masterthes refers to will happen in that episode, the second to last of the season, which sounds right on.  Loving the show so far!  As a big fan of the books it's hard not to try to find things to nitpick about, but they're making it tough!

People should probably keep open discussion of future spoilers out of this thread.  At the very least, use small font at all times.

What a fool, seasons 5-7 aren't spoiled.  :)  Part of me wonders if Martin will end up writing the script for season 7, assuming it remains on air, before he writes the book.  That would be an odd turn of events.

Watched 2 epsiodes so far. Excellent so far, but I actually find it uncomfortable to watch knowing what things are about to fall upon the characters.

People should really not throw around details like that without using small font.  This is the TV thread, not the books thread.  Give the people who haven't read the books a chance to not come across any spoilers, no matter how vague.
