  • Somewhat OT: Any Game of Thrones fans?

    I say somewhat OT, because I wanted to link to my Grain-Free Game of Thrones Feast that I made for the HBO premiere.

    Any fans of the books here? Did you watch the HBO show? I plan on making a main dish from the books every Sunday for the next 9 weeks--I'll put them on my blog.

    Hells yeah. The books rock though I have been going mental for the last seems like dozen years waiting for the newest. I was really happy with how the show turned out. I'll definitely check out your blog. if you figure out a grain free lemon cake you will be my GF's hero.

    Just went to the blog...holy hells. I am totally watching the next episode at your house. That food rocks! And a grain free lemon cake. You are my new hero.

          Yep! Love the books - getting tired of waiting for A Dance with Dragons, though...

            LOVE it! I can't wait until they get more into Tyrion and The Hound's characters.

            "The things I do for love" had my stepmom gasping. She'd never read the books. And whoa, the dude they got for Viserys is perfect.

                I just downloaded the first book onto my e-reader, once I finish the last of the Girl with the Dragon tattoo book, I'll be starting it. We don't subscribe to HBO up here (its part of a package, that would cost me big bucks monthly to get that channel, and its the only channel we'd watch!). I will however have my husband acquire a copy.

                  Watched the first episode last night...eh...so much sex! Maybe it was just the mood I was in but I got tired of all the banging going on. Are the books as bad?

                  I think it has potential, I'm going to keep watching but can't say I'm really a fan yet.

                    LOVE the books, dying for the next (already pre-ordered for my Nook) and loving the HBO series. So far, I've enjoyed the casting. And I think they did a good job of introducing the crazy plots in a pretty clear way. I wish there were more book series that were as good. The only other that I've enjoyed as much is the Acacia series by David Anthony Durham.

                    The books have a lot of sex- I tell my friends it's like Harry Potter with an R rating. Not sure what George RR Martin would say about that, though.

                      The sex is canonical. I tell my friends it's like a medieval version of The Sopranos and The Wire.

                        Yeah, sex abounds but I would say it dies down after the first book. It is hard to stab someone in the back if you are stabbing them in the...anyway. They just had to toss some sex in at the beginning as it helps define some 'relationships' No more said for spoiler reasons.

                            I really enjoyed the books, I'm a little worried about when the 5th one comes out, I am gonna have to do some re-reading of the previous ones to since it's been so long. I watched the trailer for the show, looks good. Won't be watching it though as we (my wife and I) decided to ditch cable about a year ago.

                            But I'm patient, you have to be with this series, and it will eventually be on Netflix.

                              Patience is good. Much like the books there are 50 characters to introduce and it takes time. Once it gets going...holy hells.
