If you haven't read the books, you can check all that stuff out but avoid any fan sites or that stuff. There's way too many spoilers out there. The series has too many surprises and twists and turns and it would be ruined for a lot of folks. And they start off pretty quickly.


really, it starts off quickly? I was so daunted by the number of pages that i figured it couldn't possibly start fast.

Dunk - I am in the home stretch of book 2. Am I spoiler safe for this HBO season or should I wait until I am farther along in the series?

As I understand it, each season is one book of the series.

Yep. This season should cover book 1.

I watched the first 15 minutes last night. Great stuff. Everything looked great. Obviously a lot is going to be dropped/condensed to squeeze the first book into 10 hours. I liked how they established Sansa as being ladylike while Arya is more of a tomboy over a 45 second clip.

I always notice little, insignificant things in TV/movies, but I liked how everytime they were riding through the "snow", the horses kept kicking up dirt from underneath they sprayed down fake snow.

Pretty interesting. Good acting, lots of tits. Peter Dinklage is awesome. Sean Bean makes for a good noble good guy, at least so far.

Dinklage is a very lucky man.

Wonder how this will play for people who haven't read the books. With just 10 hours for season 1 (book 1), I imagine things will move fairly quickly.

I don't have any major complaints.
Hopefully people can follow along with all the different players. There was a lot introduced in that first hour.

I think people who hadn't read the books were shocked in that last minute. So that was cool.

And more of Emilia Clarke's (Danaerys) titties please. Those get an A+ from me.

sorry...that was frigging boring. i was pretty pumped for this after the 15 minute sneak preview. if i'd known that was going to be all i liked out of the hour....

The Viserys kid that's trying to peddle his way to the throne...he's pretty dumb. Seems like he's going to get demolished by at least 3 separate factions. also...it was weird to me that his sister had less of a problem with him feeling her up than Conan the Barbarian doing it. I spent the second half hour trying to figure out where i knew him from...anyone remember the Melrose Place ripoff called North Shore? He was the bartender. and now he's conan the barbarian. 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger would snap him in 2.

Who knew that Salami from The White Shadow would be HBO's go-to director.

He's directed episodes of:

Sex and the City
Deadwood
Rome
The Sopranos
The Wire
The Pacific
Boardwalk Empire
and Game of Thrones

Sadly, I was also trying to figure that out. And, that is where I remember him from - I think we might be the only two people who watched North Shore (although I always thought it was more of a ripoff of the show Las Vegas).

i will say in public that i watched that show because i was obsessed with brooke burns at the time...but i think deep down in my lady parts i just like prime time soap operas. which is why i have to avoid them like used syringes so i don't get sucked in.

I do too (that Las vegas comparison - not spur of the moment, I've thought of this before). A few years ago, for some reason I decided to start DVRing One Tree Hill episodes on the SoapNet reruns. Could not stop watching. Made it all though high school (this was right before the adult seasons started). Soapnet is a dangerous channel - OC, 90210...

I thought Khal Drogo was played by Dave Navarro and Ned Stark was played by Triple H.

Nice.

It did okay but I heard international ratings were through the roof. They're more okay with that kind of genre, I guess.
