Alright, I feel like George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire should have a thread. These books are pretty much the best fantasy series I've ever read. The series lacks all the cliches and cheesy things that make fantasy more or less unreadable for me. If you haven't read these books yet, I highly, highly recommend them.
HBO has greenlighted the filming of a pilot episode and it's due to film this September I think. They've already landed some known actors like Peter Dinklage,Sean Bean, and Mark Addy.
That being said, has anyone else read this series? haha

My friend loves this series and is constantly trying to get me to read it. He bought me the first book for Christmas, but I never got around to it. He has the board game, t-shirts, etc. Guy's nuts about it.

I sure do like Peter Dinklage though.

On the fourth book and loving every bit of it. Of all the epic sprawling fantasy series out there this is definitely one of the best.

Can't wait for the show.

Actually dude, I'm pretty sure it got pushed back because he's working on the series. I could be wrong, but I remember reading something about him aiming to complete in late 2009 for a 2010 release.

I've been meaning to get into this. Heard great things about the books, I think I'll pick it up on my next Border's visit.

Love this series. I'm about to read through all the books again after I finish Lord of the Rings.

Not sure how the television adaptation will go, but hopefully all will be good.

I started reading the first book a week ago and just finished last night. I guess you can say I'm hooked.

I'm also super excited for the TV series premiere in just a few short weeks.

beyond excited for the tv premiere, but I definitely need to reread the series. This six year gap between books A Feast For Crows and Dance With Dragons is killing me.
