This show deserves it's own thread yeah? So, what are you thoughts on the show? Books? The rumors of a game? ^_^

Well after watching the first 2 episodes, I am entirely hooked. I so did not like what happened at the end of episode 2 though. Poor Lady :(

I think Jon Snow is quite adorable <3 Still having a hard time following who is who but I think I'm getting better at it. Have to watch the next episodes so I can be all caught up! :)

I hate the ending of all episodes! They leave us with this huge cliffhanger! *cry*

I'm so hooked on this show it's ridiculous! People are texting me asking me what I'm doing as my nose is shoved deep in the book and I'm like: "Hmm...what??" LOL!!

heh sounds like me when I get my nose stuck in a book that's a "can't put it down" type of book :)

This might aid those who can't keep track of the dozens of characters. Bookmark and enjoy.

I should also mention for a couple of you, and you know who you are, that there is a Thoros in the books/show. Jaime Lannister mentions him in the fourth episode, fyi.

He's Thoros of Myr, not of Whethoof.

If I could sue for copyright enfridgment I still wouldn't b/c Martin scares me with his epic beard.

I still think my Thoros is more bad@ss, although I'm not sure he can beat the whole warrior monk with a flaming sword bit. O.o

Oh cool! Thanks! I'm reading the books too so I can cheat with the little appendix at the end!:P Although, so far, I'm doing a good job of keeping up with what family someone is in or sides with...for now!

It's literally keeping me off the internet!! LOL! And it's weird having a book without chapters since he switches between characters. I can't say: "I'm on chapter 12." Instead it's like: "I'm reading Bran's part. Ya know when he...yada, yada..."

Not complaining about it at all though!:P

hm. that's good to know. I haven't seen the 4th one (or read any of the books). It's dloaded and waiting for me to watch.
I don't know if I could ever compare another Thoros. Your Thoros is so awesome and will always be better then any other :P

Anyone still watching GOT? Season 5 started tonight and it was awesome as usual :)

I've read it's supposed to start veering away from the books, but I don't really mind because I read them a while ago and can't remember most of it anyway, lol. I just hope there's one particular thing that stays the same because the character deserves the shit they get!
