that "inside" video was great! really looking forward to this.
shame we have to wait so long still!

sounds like they'll start filming season 2 (i assume book 2) straight after season 1.

basically, if the show becomes popular itll force george to continue with the books.

ive just started a feast for crows.

Bought Game Of Thrones for a plane trip the other day and didn't put it down from take-off to landing. Holy fuck it is AMAZING. I only have about two centimetres to go. Gonna buy the next book tomorrow.

This is rather exciting news. The problem is I haven't touched the books for about two years and can now only barely remember what actually happened

I reckon that's not a problem, means you will be surprised when you watch the series

happy to hear they'll have sex scenes, hopefully not toned down too for tv lol


im guessing they'll be pretty raunchy considering HBO's other tv shows go all out (true blood, hung)

There was one sex scene in Boardwalk Empire that was flat out pornographic.

Let's hope the actress playing Dany isn't actually 13 or whatever. That would be, um, totally wrong. Yeah. Bad.

Drogo could be payed by R Kelly!

They've aged all the kids up - I think Emilia Clarke, who plays Dany, is 21, with the character aged 17.

actually, at the beginning of the series, Daenerys is substantially younger than that.

you sure jules? i thought she was 13 too?

yeah to be honest, as great as the books are, everyone seems too young to be doing what theyre doing lols. maybe aging them up will be a good thing.

would prob get loads of bad press and dubbed as a pedo if he made the tv show correct with the ages lol

Yeh, sorry I meant that in the television series her character will be depicted as 17, rather than 13 as she is in the book (for obvious reasons).

That's just how things were back then. In Westeros. You were a has-been by 35. Unless you're highborn.

Why is Hot Pie in the cast list? He's not in the first book. I hope they're not fucking too much with it.

Spoiler:
i.e Dany's hand-maid better remember to put the perfume in all the right spots...


These books have turned me into a deviant.

That teaser looks like it hints at a few things that have only been hinted at a few, very subtle times, in the whole series. I've heard Martin has given lots of what he plans to happen in the future to the writers of the show so they can keep the show congruent with the books too... hmmm.

martin reckons that by seeing the characters portrayed on tv we might change our opinions on them and their personalities, truer to what was intented.

like sansa being more a victim and less a pain in the ass etc.

I kind of always thought of her as a victim. A whiny little bitch but then again if you'd had to go through the shit she had to, I'm sure you'd be a whiny little bitch too.

Oh fully. As annoying as she is sometimes her chapters are amazing. All those nasty characters from her perspective was a great idea.

My favourite characters are Tyrion and Arya. Just in case anyone cared.

For me, it's Tyrion, Jaime, and the Hound. I think, as a character, Jaime has evolved over the series from

Spoiler:
a golden haired fool whose solution to every problem was with his sword, to a really intelligent, deep character. That whole thing in book three when he tells Brienne the real story of what happened in King's Landing the day he murdered King Aerys was fucking incredible.

Oh I forgot about Jaime. I'm only halfway through the third book part 1 so he's only just got his own chapters.

Let's stop talking now. I ain't clicking that spoiler tag. This is getting dangerous.

If you're only half way through book 3, DO NOT PRESS THAT SPOILER TAG.

But yeah, Jaime. Awesome.

re: trailer

Spoiler:
I think that teaser was simply introducing the main characters in the series (or season one, at least) and picturing them on the throne, rather than hinting at any future occurences. It's not like Ned and Catelyn ever sought the throne. David and Dan seem to have enough respect for the fan base than to do something as blunt as that (at least I hope so!).


+1 on the Jaime awesomeness

If you actually look, I spoiler ANYTHING that could be a give away. Go right ahead, take a look at any of the last two pages of this thread, I've spoilered everything and often actually written above the spoiler "do not open this if you haven't read all of the books". I might mention Jaime, but I never give anything away.

And that's beyond a give away, all the way into flat out telling.

You didn't think it was too necessary considering what dude? Considering...
(read no further unless you've finished the books)
Spoiler:
that there's no point spoilering any of it when you say "i liked the red viper", which could be seen to imply that he dies, which wouldn't be a problem except he actually does.

About 3/4 of the way through A Fest for Crows now - I might have to go back and re-read the first couple of books before the series starts just to get my head around the minor characters again. One commentator pointed out that at the rate GRRM writes books, if they stick to one book per season they'll overtake him in a few years

^^ I usually read them once a year but only read the chapters on chars I like the most. Lazy.

Think I'll read the first book thoroughly before the show starts though.

I'm nearly finished Storm and Swords part 1. I want to have forgotten as much as I can of Game of Thrones before I watch it. If you lot re-read it you might spend a lot of time pointing shit out that's different. I hate doing that.
