    Okay, I know I'm not the only Linker that loves this series. One of my friends loves the books and has told me I have to read them. "Yeah, yeah...I'll do it someday." Well, I never saw the series, but it looked really kick-ass. Last month, I won a gift card from the local base Exchange and decided to pick up GoT on Blu Ray. So killer!

    Last night was the Season Two premier. Anyone else see it? What did you think about it?

    Awesome series, just started the books last night.

    Sweet! You'll love 'em. I'm on Book 2. I just go to the part where Dave finds the 50-gallon hot water heater filled with peppermint schnapps and the two midgets aim that canno...wait...wrong book.

    Tell you what, Dave: I was amazed at how quick I am reading these books. Book 1? One week. Book 2...well, I'm flyin' through it.

    Overall, my favorite character is John Snow. He's the outsider who has so much to prove. So far, he's man of integrity.

    My second favorite character would be Tyrion Lannister. Smart as a whip. Clever man. Reminds me of Diamond Dave's security guards from long ago.

    My favorite "story" area is everything that revolves around The Wall and what's going on up there. So friggin' cool.

    I have read the first 3 books. If they continue roughly doing a season per book, I can't wait until Season 3. My favorite event of the 1st 3 books happens in Book 3.

    This show absolutely kicks ass. I've read all 5 printed books (there are supposedly to be 7 in the series). Book 4 was a little slow because book 4 and 5 were meant to be one book, but it would have been too long.

    The show follows the books quite well, and is almost exactly how I envisioned the scenes when I read the books. I definitely recommend this show even if you don't read the books.

    However, please watch season1 on HBO GO before you jump into season 2.

    I'm about 2/3 of the way through book 5 and I'm still hooked!!
    I agree book 4 (Feast for Crows) was a little slow and strange since so many major characters were left out of it.
    Book 3 is definitely the star in the series so far, so much crazy stuff in that one. I heard they are going to stretch it over 2 HBO seasons.
    Tyrion is such a great character, he steals almost every scene he's in.

    The series is great, but we'll never see it finish. Not at the rate Martin writes his novels. If he keeps on like he has been, it will be 5 years before he finishes book 6, then another 5 or 6 years for the (supposed) last book. They'll need to keep swapping out the younger actors in the series every couple of years for new ones.

    I normally don't like period pieces or fantasy, so I was not interested in this at all. But my gf wanted to watch, so we did, DVRing the first episode and starting it later the night it premiered. I was invested right away. Not much really happens in the pilot, yet I was hooked from the beginning--stunning sets/visuals, great costumes, great acting, great characters--though I must admit that the opening changed my idea of what this show was.

    To address Wildman's concern, I wonder if at some point some major changes will occur in the story line a la True blood...?

    Not going to spoil it for you, but you'll be in shock from the story line that George Martin lays out.

    Just read that Martin is concerned he won't get the six and seventh books done in time for HBO to make the seasons six and seven. They won't be due to broadcast season six until 2016. C'mon man, get on it! Hopefully that is just hyperbole.

    Dear Lord, I love his work, but Stephen King in the output department he isn't.

    Season Three premieres March 31, 2013.

    GoT is probably the best dramatic series out right now (and it has some STIFF competition!) I too, had been told 'read the books' by dozens of friends, but had avoided doing so until after the end of the first season, and I couldn't wait to see what happened. Martin *used* to be a VERY fast writer, and he still puts out a book every one or two years, but the problem is, he keeps doing OTHER books besides GoT, so we're left wondering... and hoping... that he'll get the final 2 books done.

    As the series says, life is short, and winter is coming George... don't leave us hanging!

    I love GoT....I read all the books and then started watching the series...my favorite character is Daenerys and what goes on with her dragons...Tyrion & Arya are favorites too.....I read last night that Martin is going to try and have book 6 (The Winds of Winter) done by 2014 because HBO is creeping up on him with their film schedule. Even at that, it's going to be a looonnnggg wait......
