Just casually the other day we told my sister in law to watch an episode before bed. She watched 3 and watched at least 3 last night as well. She should be well caught up by Sunday :).

I am still waiting for him to do another book.......

He kinda left a HUGE cliffhanger in this last one.

I may need to go back and re-read the second one to remember all the plots before the new season starts! ;)

Just rewatched Season 1 (I have read all the books)

CAN NOT WAIT!

Winter is coming...
Same here, I just love this series!

I'm almost at the point where I consider this to be better than The Lord of the Rings series.

I am hoping they stay as true as they did in the first season.

VERY well done.

And if they do this right, I would not mind them splitting up the books into several seasons! (each).

Going to start reading the last book this weekend. This season is going to be better than the first.

Still seems wrong to air it on this day as it could be way very easy to screw with people. :p

I don't know how anyone could not enjoy this show. I think it's one of the best ones on television ATM.
Well...

Turns out it was something of a metaphor for the series itself. In the second-to-last episode last season, “Game of Thrones” in effect ate its own heart by killing off its main and most noble character, Ned Stark, who was played by Sean Bean, perhaps the best-known actor in this cast-of-thousands extravaganza.

So the question for HBO as Season 2 begins on Sunday is this: Who is going to replace Ned as a focus of the series? The answer, at least four episodes in: no one.
Maybe the guy should read the BOOKS.

Oh, wow, they killed the most notable character! What WILL they do??!?!?!


Sheesh.
