I love almost every storyline and character, but Daenarys doesnt do it at all with me, specially in the later books.

I really fucking love the family dynamics in the Boltons, Lannisters and the Greyjoys, I cant help but be attracted to the darker characters.

Cant wait to see how they do the Boltons, they have alot of catching up to do there. Greyjoys must fucking be done right, they nailed the Lannisters nd Tywin is even better in the series than the books. Cant wait for the show to take on the Victarion-Euron sibbling rivalry which really intrigues me, I love how Victarion is so fckng righteous, religious and moral but alltogether evil following the blue-orange warrior morality code of the ironborn, kind of reminds me of Khal Drogo.

10 best characters in the book:

1.Theon Greyjoy aka Reek
2.Jamie Lannister
3.Arya Stark
4.Tyrion Lanniser
5.Stannis Baratheron
6.Roose Bolton
7.Euron Greyjoy
8.Littlefinger
9.The Hound
10.Victarion Greyjoy

In HBO series:

1.Arya (the child actress is just incredible!)
2.Tyrion
3.Tywin (all thanks to the great actor)
4.Jamie
5.Theon
6.The Hound
7.Stannis
8.Ned
9.Melissandre
10.Jon

I just marathoned through the first two seasons in 3 days and I am now eagerly awaiting to receive my 7 books, so I can read more about (what I thought was the full but apparently not) this captivating story.

Ever since I read LotR, I never thought something could match it but I somewhat sense this epic without an end looks set to come close if not overtake it.

What are your thoughts on Game of Thrones season 1 and 2? If you haven't seen it yet, DO IT!

Rented season #1 last week. Watched one episode and returned it. For me it fell into the ever popular cable TV genre of ''throw in some nudity and they'll watch anything''.

Really, I just wanted to see the little cove in columnar basalt that is near my birthplace in Ireland, but even fast-forwarding wasn't going to be worth it.

Well, it is not like you think. Books sold 15 millions without any nude pics at all.

Nice of you to withhold judgement until you've seen more of it . It's a pretty realistic depiction me thinks even if the sex scenes at the beginning are a bit excessive.

I am still waiting for the books which is preposterous .

I have never been able to appreciate the fantasy genre. Star Wars to Lord of the Rings, did nothing for me. I like realism. So really I just rented this hoping the sex scenes would be even more excessive than they were.

I love Sci-Fi and fantasy . You'd be overjoyed to know Stars Wars Episode VII is coming .

The sex scenes get worse (or better, depending on your preferences ) as the series goes along.

There is a good dose of realism in Game of thrones, give it a shot beyond the first 2-3 episodes and you will be hooked.¨There are some excessive sex scenes further on if you need them, it really goes beyond most other HBO series.

This is definitely true. How true to the story do you think they'll go with that scene?
