    Seriously, do you take everything you read literally, or do you just presume everyone has a menial IQ? My brother is in University with him, so yeah, I'm aware he's not actually the royal spawn of incest.
    I do not always take everything literally. I just read an interview from a few cast members who said how sick they were that people regularly approach them on the street and told them they were bastards to their faces. Your post brought that up for me so I wanted to point it out. I'm not a humorless idiot.

      I love-love-love game of thrones. It has been long time since I was a fan of anything, but I am definitely fan of this. I was surprised to find topic about it in this forum. Let's talk about something else than eating for a change :P

      I have watched s1 ja s2 and read two books which made up season 3. Started reading the 4th book but it did not hook me up( I think it is because author split characters up and the story got kinda loooong, plus the Imp was in the 5th book)

      I think I have to use those illegal methods, because I have no idea when it will be shown in our TV.

      My abs favorite character is Hound. He is big mean ugly(but hot) thing but is defensive to stark girls and that makes him kind of rough-outside-soft-inside type. And I love Imp too. Only things I do not like are wildlings, the wall and things going on there

        I just got into it with a GoT binge for 2 days! Comcast had a week of "Watchathon". I don't have HBO, so this was a treat for me. Now to figure out how to see Season 3.

        I adore the Imp and am looking forwards to seeing what "The Mother of Dragons" and her kids are going to do!

          That's true - the dog is a great character - I love at the joust in season one when he fights his bro, the mountain, who's also a great (evil) charcater. and weirdly I like Jamie lannister! He's so shameless.

          Agree about thw wall - it got way too mush screen time last season. Jon snow is a streak of misery but I'd say he chills in this coming season and comes into his own. Maybe the love of a good woman will help him...

            I was a rabid fan of the books for years before they were all the rage, and frequented the fora, arguing to death about Cersei and all that. I went to the signings with Martin and all that. And then, I just lost interest after the Feast for Crows. The Dance is on my desk half-read - I just can't power through all the misery. I dunno, reading Royal Babylon right now, and the reality is so disgusting on one hand, and on another hand - I want to read uplifting stuff. The earlier books had their happy moments, but the later ones are all on the order of magnitude of Mountain casual rapes....

              Great! I'm not the only one that likes Jamie!

              Read the books (love them!) and so far I like the series. Can't wait to watch first episode of the new season (which will take me a while, since I refuse to watch it in German... streaming, here I go!)

                Just about to watch Ep. 1

                For anyone who wants to read it, some sad news about the casting for Season Four: Someone is being replaced!

                    Ha! Yeah. I totally fell for it til I read the comments. What an amazing production team - season three just begins and they already get us psyched for season four.

                    Did anyone watch ep one yet? Loved it

                      Just watched episode 3:1 --- HBO threw a freebie. I thought it was good ... Jon is less of a weenie, Tyrion is amazing, Dany is fab. I prefer the books still but I get to share the series with the rest of the world and I love the story.

                        aaaggghhhhhh i almost had a freakout

                        what are calendars? what are dates? huhwut?

                        i only read through book 2 before season 2 so i don't know what all's gonna happen (i got em all, i just fell in a no book slump) but dany in the books and dany onscreen... i just can't. i don't like her cause she bores me

                        but i yawn just a little less during season 1 rewatch
                        beautiful

                        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

                          I've read all of the books but haven't watched the show yet. A little leery of doing that because I loved the books so much. In HBO's favor, I think all of the attention has forced Martin to write at a slightly less glacial pace. I can't read the books without wanting to reach through the pages and smack Dany around - she is easily my least favorite character. Love Tyrion, Jaime and Arya.

                            I couldn't get through the second book. I just got irritated with all the battle planning. I've enjoyed most of the show, but Jon Snow is infinitely more boring in the show than in the books, IMO. I can't keep track of all the dudes in the show, though. Keep forgetting names and who is related to who. Who's that guy with the witch chick?

                            Yeah, I don't understand all the Dany love. She's definitely interesting, but ABSOLUTELY INSANE.

                              I love Tyrion, the Hound, Arya, Jon, Rob, and Dany. All great characters. Tryion is my favorite, though.

                                Stanis! Dead King Robert's brother.

                                Dany is possibly too highly bred. She has Dragon's blood after all... But seriously, how can you guys not like her? She starts as a weak victim, and then completely sheds her skin and becomes a powerful woman. Okay, she's a bit humourless, so let's hope herself and Jon Snow don't get together.!

                                I keep meaning to say this too, but the ultimate most despicable character has to be Theon Greyjoy. I hate that guy. I just watched the last ep of season one, and the scene where he pledges allegiance to Robb is so sad now, knowing what he does in Season two
