Read all the books,

Actually, yeah, WTF? This series is THE BOMB. I'm just gutted Sean Bean had to die because as an actor he's the shit. Total man crush on the guy.




Also, Will, Castle? The author mystery crime dude? Did you know FireFly is supposedly getting a reboot?

Will, series 2 just finished, you should be able to download both.

I've read the books but I still really like where they are going with the series, I can understand why they have made certain changes to the plot etc.

Yea i enjoy the show. Lots of sex scenes in it, like watchin a channel 5 porno with better actors and good story. Cant wait for season 3 after seeing the series 2 finalie.

Same Matt i loved sean bean in it and i was very angry and upset he died. My problem with it is when i go and see my mates and we speak about it ... I dont know any ones names so hard to say some of them lol and so many soo we gave them all nicknames lol. Wee dude is cool tho

Love Castle Will! :D

Tyrion Lannister! He's one of the best characters!

I also like Charles Dance's character Tywin Lannister (Daddy Lannister) because Charles Dance is an awesome actor.

The scenes between Twyin and Arya in the book were awesome, but in the tv show they were even better, that little girl is a hella good actress, she was holding her own.

The chatter about it gives me Halo quality vibes.
so I avoid it based on that alone.

I like The Walking Dead.
not to mention the channel its on is free.

It's on Cable here.... i do not own Cable. Same with Trublood.

They just get magically downloaded for me. All I have to do is say "Toshi Trublood", and it magically appears.

There are alot of things in the world not worth there hype. Swotor, halo, the hunger games, the kardasians....... but Game of thrones is a really great series. It's got good storylines, fantastic actors (well mostly i'm not really liking Cersei....she just isn't enough of a bitch), pretty good scenery and production and the author of the books is directly involves in the series so it's true enough to the books that I feel it's not compromising to much of it's soul to be mainstream TV.

I know I mention the boobies and there is alot of murdering and raping...and stuff. But most of it's needed for the story. I usually lure the boys in at work with the boobies.... but they watch the series and are actually really interesting in the storyline. Just today one of the guys just finished season 2 and he was just wanting to talk about it ALL day.

Other people I warn, yes there is alot of boobies, but under the boobies is a good story. I also tell them not to watch it with there parents around. I will get EVERYONE at work addicted to it... or at least everyone who matters.

p.s Mik the scenes between Ayra and Tywin where some of my absolute favourite. It was nice to see the comparison between Sansa and Cersei and Tywin and Ayra. You see him treating her on her merit and it's just so confusing with how he treats tyrion and Cersei.

Nah, I understood that pretty easily, reminds me of the way my dad is sometimes, Twyin expects nothing less than greatness from them, just being smart isn't enough. Whereas a serving girl, one step up from street urchin, showing a high degree of intelligence, is an amusing novelty. How much he knew but didn't feel like saying anything always intrigues me, sometimes I'm convinced he knows it's Arya, other times he seems miles off.

I know what you mean re: Halo vibes, it's hyped to fuck now, but genuinely it's one of the best shows on TV, it suffers the odd time with too many characters on the go at once. As a result I feel you'll maybe never get as .... enamoured with the show as I and others, who got in at the ground floor, are. I just started watching Breaking Bad because everyone I know was screaming the place down about it and whilst I like it and it's a good show, I often think their high praise has never really been lived up to.

As for it being on HBO, you're on the internet, it's as easy as E Z TV (or did I mean ABC, I'm soo forgetful).
