so apparently theyve been getting much more viewers than season 1. hopefully season 3's budget gets ramped up again!

Fark, 4 million an episode is a sweet number for a cable channel.

Now just imagine what they could do in terms of budget if they were charging us $0.50c each episode to obtain it from a legitimate source rather than missing out on the income entirely.

this.
so just want a general concensus. where do we draw the line on what needs to be spoilered?
season 1 has been and gone, its been on Fox, its been on dvd. If someone hasn't seen season 1, then why would they even be in this thread?
So, should we be able to talk about anything thats happened in Se01 without spoliers?
thoughts????
and yes, db its cool now, winter is coming (again)

Spesh - not willing to speculate at this stage on having a relatively 'spoiler free' zone for season 1 - that could add to more rules in here than there already are. This thread is nearly a Game of Thrones in of itself yo (Game of Posts?). I still prefer common sense apply to major plot details etc for now - I mentioned some time ago that I was posting about how amazing the ending to the Usual Suspects was in the movie thread, and Mickstah had the ending spoilt for him, so... even despite how old something is, we gotta try to not spoil it for others.

Perhaps a 'caution - spoilers' could be added to the thread title, warning potential viewers of the risk so they're fully aware they might stumble upon something they might not wanna know? just a thought for meow.

no spoilers because of season 1 answer.

robert baratheon had a conversation about wanting to kill the targaryan children (being viserys and daenerys) because they could contest the throne.

gonna spoiler this part, im almost certain they explained it in this way in the tv show, but i could be mixing it up with some facts from the books, however this is ep 1 and 2 from season 1, but i'll warn in case.
Spoiler:
they werent actually exiled but escaped there with the help of illyrio who was with the targaryans in the first few episodes, who sold them to khal drogo, who himself had explained that in some way in the first or second episode if i recall.

thats what i thought. viserys could've be rightful heir to the throne, after
Spoiler:
his father was killed (by robert) isn't that right??? because he (the former king) went mad thinking everyone was trying to overthrow him and hence the barratheon/starks et all declared war and killed him, and robert took the crown?


am i right?

so
Spoiler:
khalessi should really have the throne??? and now that she has the power of dragons, she's like fucking wonder woman, without the red shorts


i think half the story just fell into place for me!

Aerys' II Targaryen's entire reign would make for an awesome mini-series if not for the obvious cost problem.

Also Robert didn't kill the mad king, Jaime did, hence the title "Kingslayer".

I'm not sure if the series will go into depth about what happened during the siege of kings landing by the Lannisters to claim the throne for Robert.

P.S. this post isn't spoilers because it's shit that happened in the past of the story and has no bearings on the outcome

i'm following it, i was just making sure i was following correctly.
Dont forget you guys have read the books and know the story already. I haven't. It's a shit load of storyline to try and take in each episode, and there's so many characters to try and piece together.
im just get reassurance im on the right page.

Agree with other comments about pacing and characterisation being a bit of an issue this season, but overall I think the casting has been good and really enjoyed the scenes in Qarth this week.

Spoiler:
tywin and arya when she says "no my lord, anyone can be killed", shes becoming bit of a player. but dont get why the prisoner, turned lannister guard offered to kill 'the 3' for her. Is it just because she saved him, or is there more to it?

Her name is Danaerys btw, not Khalessi, that's her title.

Spoiler:
It's because of what he said. He's the same religion as the Red Woman (Melisandre) so because Arya saved 3 from the flame, he can give 3 lives back for her

Not entirely correct.

Spoiler:
Arya saved him (Jaqen H'gar) and two others from the fire (i.e. the servant of the red god). Hence three lives were "owed" to the red god, Jaqen does not serve the red god.
