Game of Thrones

Anyone watch the show? Read the books?

How is everyone enjoying season 3 on HBO??

Personally one of my favorite series on TV right now, and HBO just gets it right. I started reading the books soon after I started watching the show.

Discuss here! Favorite characters, houses, the show in general, everything!

Glad this started as Spartacus was ending.

Season 3 is off to a slow start imo.

Sucks what happened to Jamie at the end of episode 3. He is def not going to be his funny/cocky self anymore.

Haven't read the books, but GF and I are on Season 2 now trying to catch up. Khaleesi is pretty damn hot... Glad her prick brother got axed in the first season.

Friend says S3 is pretty good so far, we're looking forward to it!

Khaleesi is my favorite character for many reasons. I like Tyrann as well... that little midget gets laid more than anyone. I watched season 1 and reading books now. Will get caught up at a later date on the series.

Because you like to read boobs?

Yeah hard to believe Lena Headey that plays Cersei Lannister also played the kick ass broad "Ma-ma" in Dredd

Favorite show since Season 1. I might have to start reading the books, and that's saying something because I'm not much of a reader. I'm not sure about this whole white walker thing though.

I've read the books and watch the show. The show does a great job with the original material. I foresee problems ahead though. Books 3-5 were nowhere as good as books 1 and 2. The pacing slows, a massive amount of additional plots splinter off and the author has a difficult time progressing the narrative. It also doesn't help that it takes 3-4 years for him to put out a new book, isn't close to concluding the story and is old and fat. I'm guessing he dies before ever finishing his vision.

What?
Book 3 is slower than 1 and 2? Maybe you need to go back and reread it.

Jaime loses his hand.
The Red Wedding.
Geoffrey's wedding.
The Unsullied.

There is so much packed into Book 3 that they are splitting it into two seasons for the HBO series.

Some friends of mine got me to watch the show when the first season started two years ago which got me hooked, and I started reading the books as well. I'm currently in the middle of book 5. I'm usually not a big fan of fantasy or medieval stories, but GoT is on another level.

That statement gave me a little laugh because it means, "Queen is my favorite character." "Khaleesi" is the Dothraki word for queen, which Daenerys became when she married Drogo.

if you are planning to read the books, you might want to wait as it may be another 5-10 yrs (probably longer) before the final book is written.

How about Season 3 Episode 9!? Holy sh*t
I'm sure people who read the book knew it was coming (and I was expecting it considering all of my friends who read the book who have been talking about this 'red wedding')


---

On another note; I picked this up for a pretty penny!

Damascus Steel (Valyrian Steel), 24k gold plating, and "dragon bone"
For sizing, the blade is 19.5"

Ya that was a crazy episode.
Don't mind as I'm always asking myself who a character is and where they came from. Makes it easier with less people to focus on haha
