Oh s**t, I guess I should have at least fast forwarded the other episodes before returning the season virtually unwatched.

New teaser:

[youtube]TQlP5955-24[/youtube]

Reveals nothing....but there are drums which makes me happy.

Some footage but no trailer:

Wishlist for season 3:

1.Real bear
2.Good invented storyline for Ramsey to make up for cuting him out of season 2
3.Dreams, lots of them. They have been missing so far.
4.Naked Sansa Stark. Quote with pedobears or whatever you like to call that, all heterosexual men want to see this.
5.Flashbacks.
6.Wolfman (only bookreaders know what I am talking about)

You're right. The books are awesome, so read them afterwards and you won't be disappointed.

The series won't end for another 10 years (realistically), so you better be prepared to wait .

True... I saw the first Lord of the Rings movie before reading the books, then I read all 3, and I regretted it bitterly afterwards because I'm sure it spoilt my enjoyment of the 2nd and 3rd movies.

At the same time, the books are really really good. And both the series and the book take a long time to be released, so... To be honest, since I read the books, I have forgotten a lot of the details, so unless the series really strays a lot from the original, I don't really notice it.

It would be a shame to wait for 10 years! All the more as some fans fear GRR Martin will not live long enough to finish his books...

He probably wont seeing how fat and prematurely he has aged, I will almost be happy if he just finishes Winds of Winter and then the last book will be left with a sense of mystery and we will all have our own theories on how it all ended.

However, Winds of Winter needs to be done, it is just so many cliffhangers left hanging in the air by the end of the 5th book.

Also good deleted scene:

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

i heard he left clues to the producers how the books would end, in case he dies.

so the show will be finished accordingly to his ideas, i'd guess.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

This year we will be introduced to the Tully it seems and there will be alot of Bolton goody too, Tyrells will be properly expanded as one of the main families with the introduction of Lady Oleanna.

I wonder if people will have a hard time keeping track of the story, those who havent read the book. What began as a story of struggle between 2 families will end up beeing about 10 families and alot of other players beeing introduced from every corner of Westeros (and Essos), even the lesser noble families are important.

Even in the later books many lost track of the story as it expanded like a balloon. I loved it ofcourse, chaos is the right word for the struggle of power in Westeros. I just dont know how this will translate on the screen, I still hold the 1st season as better than the 2nd because simplicity worked well for the TV producers.

Clash of Kings was a better book than Game of Thrones, so it makes you wonder if they can hold true to the story's complexity.

Also, the past is so important to the story. They should make a Roberts rebellion ministory before season 4.
