Game of Thrones **All Book Spoilers Must Use Tags**

Is anyone else as excited for this HBO series for 2011 as I am? It's based on the popular novel series Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin, an adult based fantasy with hundreds of characters.

In the books each chapter plays from a different point of view of different characters. I've read every book at least 4 times, only 4 of 7 ridiculously thick novels have been released so far. I would highly recommend the books to most people. What I love about the story is with the multiple perspectives put into play there isn't too much black/white or good/bad. Magic is minimal, which keeps the story somewhat realistic.

Anyways, here are some videos.

Boromir (Sean Bean) really likes medieval films



Seems interesting...

I'm excited. I love the novels (so far, at least lol) and this looks to be quite promising. I'm glad that they're planning on keeping the series as faithful as possible to the books. Lots of intrigue and subplots happen throughout the series, so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out.

Curious if it's just gonna be the first book or if they plan on adapting all of them...

I"m a huge fan of the novels and so excited about the series. Also the next book will be out in June just as the series ends!

I'm very curious how they handle some of the plot elements given some of them are even a bit... squicky? harsh? for HBO. I hope they don't flinch away from taking the subject matter head on though.

So stoked for this. I got The Game of Thrones book years ago but I haven't read it yet. Also like it was said above, Camelot is also on... I saw the first episode and it also looked good.

You should really try to get into the book. It is amazing. Even if the show is a good watch, the book has so many intricate little things and side stories that I really doubt would fit into the show.

dammit! I was hoping they'd get a hotter chick to play Danerys. I've only read the first book ages ago, but from what I've read, she sounded like some ultra hot blonde minx.

hm... second episode didn't seem to have much action in it.
Typical HBO style though, leave all the cliffhangers for the end. (I'm thinking of True Blood)

They've cut out a fair bit of the story so far, though admittedly it'd be pretty hard to actually add a lot of it in.

Like the books, Tyrion and Jon Snow are my favorite characters. Those two were portrayed pretty well considering how I imagined them to be. Others, though... eh. Daenerys and Jamie/Cersai, among others, I imagined as looking completely different. I also imagined Kings Landing as a much more majestic place than what the interior shots are showing it as.

Ah well.

As for the lack of action in Ep2, it's still in the plot development stage. Judging from what they're taking and cutting from the book, I'd say Ep3 will have some action in it (the Hand's Tournament).

On the plus side, HBO has already renewed the show for a second season. From the names of each episode in Season 1, I'm guessing that the second season will follow the second half of the book.

Holy shit, the next book A Dance With Dragons has just been finished. Too bad we still have to wait until July to get the book. Can't wait!

So far I'm enjoying the series, although it doesn't exactly feel as captivating as reading a book. One thing is true though, I hate Sansa in the show just as much as I did in the book. What a bitch.
