A Game of Thrones Pilot Greenlit

Recommended Posts

Two great episodes in a row

Agreed. This week was particularly good. Just hope the new cycle holds!

if you lot hadn't noticed, season 1 episode 7 is on the interwebs...it was aired on HBO Go (which I don't get even though I have HBO--they haven't yet inked a deal with TWC/Brighthouse)...anywho, hit up bittorrent if you wanna see it...best watched on a mobile or a laptop...

I must be the outlier here. I initially liked it a lot but as it progresses I find myself becoming less interested in watching. None of the characters are particularly well developed and the story is not particularly engaging. I will finish out the season and hope for better. On Sundays I have been looking forward to watching The Killing a lot more.

Just realized that it's over already, as is The Borgias. I stopped watching until I read the book. Reading another lengthy novel beforehand to forget most of what I saw of the show, get a fresh take on it.

I thought the finale was very strong and opened up so many questions and plot lines that I am pissed I have to wait until next Spring for another episode. I think I will start reading the books on our trip.

I really liked that show. Did the first season follow (ie. skim over, I'm sure) the first book in its entirety, or are we still only part of the way through the first book?

In any event, I will be reading the books shortly.

I did enjoy this season and am now back to playing the waiting game until June 27th (birthday/weeds premiere) and July 17th (breaking bad).

Bump. I have been crushingly sick for two days now (worst birthday evar, but I digress). It's been impossible for me to drive anywhere, and difficult to even keep the wood stove lit.

The one upside to my predicament is that I have been mainlining Game of Thrones like it was the most minty fresh crack rock ever and my laptop was an autoloading crack pipe.

That's good news. Splitting A Storm of Swords into two seasons gives Martin another year to finish off the book series, though I still have my doubts that he'll live long enough to do so.

As much as I loved the first season I thought they could have split it into two seasons. As I recall, the Storm of Swords was the longer book of the first three.

started to re watch season one in prep but this could get confusing as I am also 3/4 of the way into the audible of book 3

Game of thrones season 1 over. The first half was nice and at a good fast pace. The second half seemed rushed - maybe it just felt that way bc of the twist and turns. Not having read the books I certainly expect some of the twists. I enjoyed the content but feel like it should have been a bit longer. Hbo has some excellent shows. I wish there wasn't nudity in the shows so I could watch it at home. I subscribed to Hbo and showtime a while back but got it cancelled due to parental issues. I don't find it offensive but parents are hardcore Indians.
