I'm actually thinking they'll combine the 4th and 5th book into one season, tbh. I could be wrong though. I just didn't see much necessity in a lot of scenes in FfC and DwD.

Hm.... but there's so many characters though.Spoiler talk

Loving that RenLora's gif- I hope they go further :naughty:

-Just finished a Sansa set- my best one so far :legend:

2 clicks away- just a little something to show Hulu who's Boss :cool:


Ok, I'm like on 620 of Feast for Crows on some Victarion chapter... I seriously could care less about the Greyjoys tbh. The only one I care for is Theon, but he's not in this book. It looks like things are finally picking up on everyone else's chapters though.

I can't believe Community beat out 30 Rock. :cry:
At least GoT is killing it!

I really enjoyed the Kingsmoot chapters. To each his own, I suppose.
I read the Kindle versions of the books though so I'm not sure what page I'm on. I'm 67% through though on a Theon chapter. Not interested in his chapters, tbh. He kind of annoys me in this book. The only Greyjoy I like is the Damphair.

All of these Greyjoy's confuse me tbh. I'm re-reading the first book as well: wow so many things changed from the HBO version. I completely forgot about the Robb and Joffrey confrontation and Arya watching them fight along with Jon. Other things they changed: the Dinner the Starks and the Lannisters have: in the books the Starks and the Lannisters enter the dining hall: Ned w/ Cersei; Robert with Catelyn; Robb w/ Myrcella; Arya w/ Tommen; and Sansa w/Joffrey. Dammit- why couldn't this season have more than 10 episodes :cry: I also noticed how Arya and Jon are very similiar: they both took after the "Stark' look, while the rest appear more "Tully". Also:

[left]LOST ANGELES, March 15 (Reuters) - HBO's award-winning fantasy drama "Game of Thrones" has earned a new crown: the largest first-week DVD sales among any series in the cable network's history.[/left]

[left][color=#222222]Season one DVD sales reached about 350,000 units in the first seven days following its March 6 release, the network said on Thursday. That pace ranks ahead of other popular HBO series including "The Sopranos," "Sex and the City" and "True Blood."[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]The DVD sales indicate strong interest in "Game of Thrones" ahead of the second season, which starts April 1.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]The "Game of Thrones" news comes as HBO battles the backlash from its cancellation of the show "Luck," produced by series star Dustin Hoffman, after the death of a third horse on the show.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]"Game of Thrones" tells the story of clashes among seven noble families seeking control of the fictional medieval region of Westeros. The series is derived from the five best-selling novels by George R.R. Martin and became a hit when it debuted last year. The show averaged 9.3 million viewers during its first season, ranking fourth among all series in the network's history.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]The series earned critical acclaim and a supporting actor Emmy for Peter Dinklage, who plays the clever but rude Tyrion, among other awards. HBO is a unit of Time Warner.[/color][/left]

[left][color=#222222]The program also set an HBO series record for sales of digital downloads from outlets such as iTunesapple, the network said, but it did not provide figures.[/color][/left]

They would have confused me too if I didn't have that Wiki of Ice and Fire site. Potential threat of spoilers on there, but I don't really care. I'll be reading the books anyway so what's the difference if I accidentally find out something beforehand? :P

Hm, never really thought of differences like that from the first book. They generally stayed pretty true to it though. I don't see myself rereading them. I have way to many books on my to-read list. I also have a New Year's Resolution of finishing 20 books and so far I've only read 2. :ohno:

Let's hope it stays on. I'm a little worried about the show for several reasons: 1) like the series Rome, there could be budgetary issues. That show was incredibly popular but waaay too expensive to film, which GoT is as well. 2) Like Camelot, there could be scheduling conflicts with the actors. I wouldn't worry about that too much though since none of the actors in this are huge (at least now without Sean Bean). And finally, the one that worries me most is 3) the fact that this show puts pressure on Martin to write and release the books faster, and that man does not respond well to pressure. So what will happen once the show catches up to the books? Only time will tell.

Cat's hatred for Jon really pisses me off.

Cat: Jon.
Me: OMFG IS SHE GOING TO BE NICE TO HIM? SHE SAID HIS NAME OMFG OMFG WJ J$@ 33k
Cat: It (Bran's falling) should have been you.
Me: asdfghefjowfo I CANNOT WITH THIS BITCH. asqdfghjfe2ife

I already watched the show, so I should have expected that, but I thought maybe the book might have had a slight change to that, but no. lol. Sigh.

hmm.. I found this (chart)

Rome costs nearly Double of what it cost to make Game of Thrones (at least for Season 1). As long as the GoT series gets strong ratings and good amounts of critical acclaim, I'm pretty sure they'll stick with the series. I think Season 2 will be a Make it-or- Break it moment, but we'll see.

As far as Martin's books are concerned.... well, idk... he has a good 5-6 years to write The Winds of Winter, but once HBO catches up (if they do)- idk like you said. :ohno:

Eh... that's one of the things I hate about Catelyn; she should be taking out her anger on her husband and not the innocent one. I'm kind of mixed with Catelyn; love and hate i guess.

Ah, that's an interesting chart. I'm curious to see if the budget increases as the seasons go on, as we start getting into epic battles and all the magical properties. Rome won four Emmys and had a pretty large fan base as well (me being part of the fan base :cry: ), so I definitely see Game of Thrones comparable with Rome. But because this is a book series and they (hopefully) wouldn't deviate too much from the books, it leaves out ending the series early (unless, of course, they decide to just end up it abruptly without closure as they did for Camelot).

I'm predicting that the series will catch up with the books. I'm also predicting that Martin will write more than two more books for this series. I honestly don't see him tying up so many loose ends and finalizing all the story lines in merely two more books.

Yeah, that's exactly how I feel about her. I want to really love her character, but her Jon hatred brings her down a few levels.

That's one thing we need to consider. As the series goes on, there will be more cast members added and things will get really complicated :ohno: Also [color=#FF0000](SPOILER- don't click if you havent read up to the 3rd book!)[/color]
