:gah: We canceled HBO and DVR about a month ago to save money. I might have to re-order HBO just while GOT is on and then cancel it again.

I am so excited! Even though I read the book and my husband finally finished Clash of Kings (it only took him 6 months), I am trying to avoid all videos so I can be surprised by what I can be surprised by.
But the commercials I have seen for this season look awesome. I thought I would have a hard time getting excited since Sean Bean won't be on anymore :cry: but no!
The funny thing is, DH's boss has a countdown to the show and everyday he says to DH, "x amount of days until GoT!"

Did you all watch the premiere last night?

I thought it was well done considering all the stories they had to cram in one hour. DH said he thought it should have been at least 90 minutes rather than an hour.
I continue to be amazed by how talented the young actors on this show are: Joffrey, Bran, Sansa, Arya (though we saw little of her last night). Robb Stark is also excellent too. Glad to see that we will see more of him and Jaime this season and that will be different then the second book.
Tyrion is definitely going to have his work cut out for him in Kings Landing.
As much as I can't stand Cersei, I dislike Littlefinger even more, so I was glad to see her threaten him.

Oh I reordered HBO just in time! It was such a big hoopla I wound up on the phone with Cox all day Friday but now I have it! (For free! For 12 months!) I am having friends over tonight for a GOT party, but I still watched the episode last night. I was distracted though, the kids were still awake, and I kept thinking that if I hadn't read the book I would be lost. Anyone watching who didn't read the book? I don't see how you would know who anyone is if you hadn't read the book. They sure are going to have to cram a lot in. I wonder if any story lines will be skipped or if they will chop it up in to more than one season or what.

My DH was saying the same thing about if you didn't read the book you would be lost. I'm in the middle beginning of reading the book, but i think i had read everything that had happened in that episode.

I didn't get to watch last night. :cry: I fell asleep. 3 hours of yardwork plus regular cleaning made me very sleepy. So we'll watch it tonight! :smilie_xmas_116:

I've read that supposedly next season (if there is a season 3) that they will take storylines from book 3 into two seasons. I wonder storylines will be skipped this season and I also wonder if some storylines for Robb and Jaime will be pushed up.

Isn't Brienne introduced in the second book? I can't wait to see her. :laughing: I wonder if they're going to use makeup to ugly someone up, or really hire a man, or what.

Brienne is definitely prettier than I thought she would be, but pretty mannish when in costume.

I think they really tried hard to follow up on all the characters they could have plus introducing Stannis, Davos and Melisandre.

Anyone watch last night?
Last night's episode was kind of "meh" for me. The best parts were with Tyrion, Cersei and Varys. I felt like the rest there was not enough time to really get invested in the storyline. Though what was the point of Littlefinger at the brothel???
Peter Dinklage is really carrying this show on his back.

I really have a problem with the introduced character, Theon's old girlfriend. She's not in the books, so why focus on her at all? :aggressive: Balons: I do like Theon's sister. I can't wait to see Aeron Damphair.
Baratheons: I thought Gendry was with a "J" sound, not the hard "G".
Lannisters: Tyrion is the shiz.
Danerys: I don't know if they're focusing enough on her story, although it's hard to focus on someone who is in the desert.
Varys: Seems a little sinister, I don't remember him being as in-your-face as he is coming across in the television series.
Not a fan of Davos Seaworthy's kid, I know he's supposed to be a devout worshipper of R'hollor, but he's a bad actor.
Gilly looks the part of NOT BEING PREGNANT! SHeesh, isn't she supposed to be very pregnant? Did I just miss something?

Spoilers:

















I think the next episode will be good though, the Stannis/Melisandre shadow beast? Then Brienne!

And Margery Tyrell!
Oh yeah! Plus it looks like Arya and company are going to be having to fight their battle too.
I always thought Varys was more subtle in the book too. I was a little surprised that it was revealed that Joffrey ordered the deaths of Robert's illegitimate children. I always had it in my mind that Cersei was behind all that. I can't remember how it went down in the books, but I always blamed her.
No need for Theon's ex, that scene seemed random or just to show how over confident Theon was getting now that he had the opportunity to go home.
Yeah, Davos Jr. (or whatever his name is ) was not that good. A rare poor performance from someone on this show.
