    Man, I can't wait for this. I really hope they carry on with all the books after this one.

    Too long of a wait for Netflix and Hulu doesn't always carry HBO shows, at least not soon after they are aired. I will find it on some other site though. Maybe www.surfthechannel.com, they usually have episodes available the very next day. Only problem is the quality is not so great.

    This should be a great series. Love the books, for the genre.

    Can't wait for this, though I'm not thrilled with the casting of Lena Headey as Cersei.

    No problem with her acting ability for the part, just her looks are too underwhelming for the role IMO, especially with the hair they gave her.

    Interesting. I found her to be one of the best cast of the show. She fits Cersei SO well. I like Jaime's actor as well, very much.

    Either way I've been waiting for this series since it was announced in 2008.. It's been a long wait. I'm very happy with the cast and can't wait to watch this!


    I've been waiting for book 5 of his series much much longer unfortuneately. I feel like George is going to die before finishing it! If that happens.. I'll.. I'll KILL HIM. :lmao2:

    Best books evar.

    Awesome! Direct TV just totally messed up and gave us HBO/Cinemax for $10 a month for the next year, so I will be watching this when it comes out!

    I thought that was a very good choice as well.

    Headey is an in betweener for me. Not one of my favorite castings, beacause I don't think she's hot enough, at least looks odd as a blonde, but not one of my least favorites either.

    Favorites are the castings for Tyrion, Jon Snow, and Arya. And since seeing some footage I think Dany is going to be played great as well. The one I like the least is King Robert.. Mark Addy is way too short.

    haha, ya we have heard that before. Where did you see that the next one is going to be out this year? There isn't an update on GRRM's site.

    It's her looks for the part that I have a problem with. I imagined her as someone that looks a lot better than Lena (not that she's ugly or anything), and her hair just looks like she's a peasant.

    You can occasionally garner some information from his "not a blog" blog.

    When he's not busy writing about the NY Giants/Jets =(

    I should never have gotten involved in the books of a Giants fan!

    Yeah, I seem to be at odds with the man on just about everything, but absolutely love this series (by far my favorite) and have enjoyed some of his other work as well.
