So pumped! I've been waiting months for this.

Bean already looks fantastic from just 3 minutes of footage.

...from O2 surprises...

Looks awesome, the bird from 300 is in it too, I can't wait.

I haven't even read the book yet!

Just finished watching it. It was... well done. Quite decent, actually, but I fear I had my hopes a little too high. The adaption is really good, the characters are well casted and did a good job, all of them. What didn't really ride with me was the way some of the scenes were shortened in comparison to the books (the one where they find the wolves, for example, or the one with Bran an Jaime Lannister in the end). I know, they can't convert the book into a series without making some cutbacks, but still, I would have liked it if they had stayed closer to the books. Then again, I know the books by heart and could probably give you a detailed time-line of all the events since before Robert's Rebellion from memory. ;)

Another thing I didn't quite like was the magnitude of certain things. In the books, the Dothraki wedding is a ginormous thing with all 40.000 riders present, and that really didn't come across in the series (imho). Also, I'm a little concerned about certain... events that will force them to have computer animations interacting with real people (Dragons, maybe the Others, maybe the Wildfire). I'm curious how well that will be done.

All in all, I have to say I enjoyed the first episode, I am looking forward to the next one, and I encourage everyone to read the books, because they are freaking awesome and even better than the series. The best fiction books I ever read.

One last remark, in favour of the TV show: all that nudity works a little better on screen as it does on a book page. :shifty:

Yep. If you're into that, enjoy the show. ;)

On my count, there were 5 scenes with nudity, 4 of which showed people actually having sex. On the other hand, we have half a fighting scene in the very beginning. Well, the ratio will shift soon enough, I'm guessing... :plot:

Just waiting for my dad to go to sleep and free the BIG ASS HD screen he bought a couple of weeks ago. It'll be awesome. :awesome:

I must say, perfect timing. Visiting my parents' place when GoT premiers. :thumbup:
