I always seem to forget to post more in this thread.

I'm nearing the end of book three, A Storm Of Swords. Some of the shit that goes down in that book had my jaw to the floor. I still can't get over what a great book / tv series this is.

I should probably wait till it's over to say anything but so confused by the beginning of episode 3.

Pretty solid series so far, especially the initial scenes from the first episode.

A little slower pace, but still very good.

A slow episode, but still good. Ending was badass, even though The Imp didn't actually do it .

Also, I wonder if Bran actually never walks again?

Triple post but I found this:



Sansa, Arya, and Bran (Sophie, Maisie, and Isaac), and Lady. The Turners (Sansa) adopted Lady after the season.

Officially caught up with the show.

My three favorite scenes in the show thus far (in no order):
1. Arya's first lesson with Syrio
2. Seeing Joffrey get pwned by Tyrion in Winterfell
3. The finding of the direwolf pups

Three scenes from the books that I'm looking forward to in the show (don't look if you haven't read 'em):
1. The Red Wedding
2. The trial of Tyrion Lannister in King's Landing (and the resulting duel)
3. Battle of the Blackwater

I like the second half of book one better than the first... pretty much everything after Tyrion leaves the Vale . So I'm really excited to see the show pick up. These first four episodes have been great... I'm just excited for even greater things ahead.

The newest episode was too good and yet another crazy ending. I love this show already. I wish I read the books, but at the same time I don't cause I'm left wondering what will happen next.

I have fallen in love with this show and I'm debating reading the books in order to get context, I get confused every now and then with the families and the names.

Dooo it. If you start soon, you may very well be able to get through the books right as the newest one, A Dance With Dragons, comes out in July. The first half of the first book seemed a little hard to follow for me at first (before the show was out), but since you watch the show and have a good idea of what is going on, it should be smooth sailing.

Oh, and the third book, A Storm Of Swords, is one of the best books I have read in a long time.

It is definitely an easy read after watching the first few episodes of the show. I just started reading the book on Monday and I'm about halfway through it now. I'd like to finish it before tomorrow night, but we'll see how that goes. Needless to say, I am hooked, and I have a feeling that this show will be a staple in my television viewing for the next few years.

Pretty excited for this. Tyrian Lannister has become one of my favorite characters, I really hope he didn't really do it, haha.

Thinking about getting the books. Think I'll wait until after the first season before I read them, though.
