Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

its the same in the books, I loved Arya and hated Sansa....

I think its done a great job of portraying the series pretty darn well...its not like the book wasn't raunchy and sex filled either.....

I LOVE the wolves!

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

I like the way they are using the growth of the direwolves to represent the passage of time from episode to episode.

Legendary is hardly the proper word for a 2011 TV show. Only time produces legends.

And anyway, the clip you show of Dinklage murdering the English language will only become legendary by its triteness and appeal to a schoolboy sense of talking dirty.

Tuned in last week. While it will not accompany The Sopranos, The Wire and Six Feet Under in the HBO pantheon, it's a very well-rounded and entertaining show.

You could have chosen two or three better excerpts from that same scene alone.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

It's been improving with every episode, HBO with yet another winner.

It does amuse me though that the show is basically a who's who of British actors.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

Sansa is the worst actor of the lot. She lacks such conviction. Then again the female teen actors that portray the "helpless damsel" characters in a variety of shows are beyond terrible. I'm just dreading her role in the future.

Anyhow, I find the show highly entertaining. What's with the high amount of nudity though? It's not tasteful; I don't get it. If it doesn't help along plot it shouldn't be in it, simple.

I wonder if the series will catch up before the final book is written, which would be disastrous. My guess is they'd have to develop a single book into multiple seasons.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

I haven't watched it so far, but I will maybe watch this episode and the next one, as I saw Sibel Kekilli is in it. Her character's name is Shae. Would be great if somebody who watches it tonight could tell me how big her role is, so I know if it's worth downloading.
