Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

Trouble is is that I am staying at my moms house while she is in the hospital and she doesn't have HBO. I think I am just going to drive home tonight and watch it and then go back to my moms. I am too stoked for this.

Pretty well done. Some details are missed from the book obviously, but they touched on all the important stuff and cast is great (Jamie being better than I thought he would be when I saw who they cast) and the settings are awesome. I'm already worried that 10 episodes just isn't going to cut it. I guess it depends on where they stop the first season in the story though.For those that had trouble keeping track of who is who...HBO Game of Thrones Guide It's spoiler free, but shows a lot of people that have not been introduced yet.

My guess will be that fastpasstv.com will hook you up
ty! it worked.I really liked it. I hope enough people watch it so it doesn't get cancelled. All the characters seemed to be casted well aside from Cat looking like a grandma.I know he was in it for about 5 seconds, but how sick was The Hound's costume!Favorite character's: Tyrion (they should have made him look uglier though) and Daenarys for obvious reasons. How hot is she!

Not sure what your mom's issue(s) is/are, but all the best...Watched the 1st Ep last night and, although I have seen and read so many fantasy stories and am very cynical about content (ie: Dire wolves? Again? A mysterious malevolent warrior army? Again? Another savage warrior race who likes raping women during parties? Again? A trusted advisor dies suddenly and someone suspects murder? Again?), it's still a pleasure to watch something with some awesome production values. Man, they sure spent a pissload of money on this...Sean Bean is excellent, as always, and there is lots more to enjoy...Loved/hated the end of the episode, but a catalyst is clearly required.

Was able to watch it and enjoyed it a lot. They changed somethings around and added a scene or two but it worked to get the story across and that is all I really cared about.Merc: thanks, she had a hip replacement and all is well.

You have read a lot of fantasy, but not these books? I know it has been said a ton on this forum, but please read the books. This is by far my favorite fantasy series.I see what you are saying in your post. Try to give things awhile to develop and it will set itself apart from other fantasy stories imo. There are a lot of characters who have not been introduced and a lot of the minor characters who were introduced become a lot more epic. It was just an introductory episode and if they are going to do with the series what I think they will, it is going to be extremely entertaining.

I will say that I am not a fantasy reader but was told I had to read these books and I absolutely loooooved them. If all fantasy was like this then I would read it but it's not.

I do believe I will read the books and, despite my comments, there is no question: I will be watching this series. The fantasy genre is one of my favorites, although I have not really immersed myself in anything over the past few years. That being said, I do love tits and dire wolves and courtly intrigue...What self-respecting fantasy series DOESN'T have those?

Don't forget the simulated doggie style rape...

OK, I watched it. Pretty good. I am about as far in the book as this EP went. I am going on vacation the end of the week and hope to finish the book, then I can actually watch the rest of the show.

Just finished watching and I approve of the treatment. So far the show seems to respect the source material and they've done an admirable job of condensing a massive work without leaving out the seminal events.

Really? I though it would be one of those epic one-off things, but this is good news for fantasy fans. Now they don't have to rush plots and leave gaping holes in the narrative.
