Honestly, I just pray that hbo will at least cover up until book 3. A feast for crows can be ignored for all i care.

Anyhow, I find the show highly entertaining. What's with the high amount of nudity though? It's not tastefu]; 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.
I'm with you. But I suspect it's not getting any better, see below...

OMG

For those of you who don't know her, she's a Turkish-German actress who rose to prominence after the film Gegen die Wand. It was later revealed though that she had previous experience as a porn actress.

I agree that the nudity is excessive at times, particularly during Aiden Gillen's monologue a couple of weeks ago, when the two whores were going at it. I understand that the novels are full of it though, moreso than the series, plus it is HBO.

Also have to agree with Har-Tru that as good as it is, it isn't going to join The Wire, Deadwood, Six Feet Under or The Sopranos.

revealed by the gutter press btw., but who seriously gives a fock apart from some prudes, who maybe refuse to watch her films because of that, well their loss cos anybody who has seen said Gegen die Wand (Head-On) or her more recent film Die Fremde (When We Leave) won't be able to deny that she's currently the best German actress under 35 out there, if not the best from all age groups

btw. she's had a nosejob too, that evil bitch

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

I think they executed (har har) the scene I was dreading of perfectly. I'm going to miss Sean Bean, the son of a bitch dies in everything he does like it's written in his contract.

Another great episode, but they did a budget cop-out by skipping over a battle. At least show Tyrion lop off one guy's head lol.

She was terrible, but since she's done porn I'll give her a pass.
Also, the lack of battle scenes and Daenerys getting her bits out is a bit disappointing, but other than that, another awesome episode.

Well, there really isn't that much written about that battle in the book, I mean they didn't leave out much of anything

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

That was a pretty devestating climax made all the worse because Ned went ahead and betrayed himself. I was hoping Arya was somehow going to take Joffrey out

Damn you HBO, last year it was Creighton on Treme and now it's Ned. I guess Nucky had better watch out.

So true. I think the only movie I can think of in recent memory he hasn't died in is the Percy Jackson movies, but only because he's an immortal god in those.

I do agree with you, but the way Tyrion commanded the vanguard and was successful in doing so set up his actions in the 2nd book. Thankfully, Martin will be writing that specific episode next season.

Re: HBO game of thrones - anyone watching?

I thought Ned Stark's death was pretty bumming... to put it bluntly, he died without honour (he confessed crimes he didn't commit) and looking like a fool for believing they were going to let him walk.

But he did save his daughters' lives. Then again, he probably could have put popular opinion against the new king. We'll never know, but what I know from the books is that this is a pivotal moment in the series. It's the catalyst for everything that will happen.

Yep. Absolutely no redeeming qualities whatsoever.
