Did anyone catch the first episode? Haven't read any of the books but from what I read it's pretty much spot on so far. Seemed like a promising series for something I've never heard of before, some nice characters in there too :P

My friends a huge nerd of the books and he's loving it (and was ridiculously hyped for it, so that says something). I've been looking forward but not had chance to give it a proper watch yet... I've seen the opening scene but no further. Already renewed for a 2nd season, and sounds like the people in charge have high hopes and plans for this one despite it's huge costs.

Yeah, pretty decent. I wish HBO would drop their fascination with tits and arse though. Boromir Sean Bean was a dodgy cast imo but he does a decent job like. Mark Addy seems good too, nice to see him get sizable role.

The books are apparently extreme and the ages have been bumped in the TV show for taste reasons. I can understand where you're coming from, but it's all in the source material.

I haven't read it so I'll take your word for it. That blonde girl looked about 14.

I thought Emilia looked a little young in the show, but she is roughly my age so it's all good :wub:

After the last few posts, this is definitely going on my "to watch" list. I wasn't interested before.

It's awesome. I watched the first episode twice in a row the other night, and I can't remember another show that's made me want to do that recently. I also love that Peter Manion from The Thick Of It is advisor to the Targaryens.

Episode 2 was rather nice too, slowly building up/things making more sense now (coming from someone who has no idea about the books/previous info on this series)

Up to episode 3 as haven't had time to watch much this week, still really enjoying it.

My friend says based on it's pacing so far, it'll start to kick off properly after the next few episodes. Looking forward to that, it sounds like it's the ~5 episode introduction The Wire gave us before getting to the good shit.

Haha Luke, I told you you'd fuckin love it didn't I! Did we talk about this on Saturday by any chance? That's a conversation that's never going to come back to me based on the fact I still don't remember you turning up!

Episode 5 is on hold at the moment as my amp blew on Saturday night and waiting for a replacement to turn up in the mail. I'm not watching it through laptop speakers.

Nah. Our conversation on Saturday involved you calling me a wanker 10 times, falling over twice then getting put to bed. Short, informative and sweet.
