So far so good. It's definitely building up with the introduction of Stannis as well as detailing the coming war between the kings.

Re: Game of Thrones on HBO !


We are watching it! Reupped our HBO just for season 2, lol. I'm loving it so far, but the story is really getting messy/yucky. So many bad things are happening!! Fighting really hasn't started yet, still building.. but lots of new characters are being introduced.

There's a guy in our SWTOR guild that has read all the books. I love talking with him about it in vent.

Kinda funny, his main's name is Khaledrin. He decided to make an alt... he named her Khalessi. emoticon I smile every time he logs on her. emoticon

We're watching it here as well. Such a fabulous show! emoticon

They've introduced your favorite character Bri Gnelle. Though she's not nearly as ~homely~ as depicted in the book, she's by no means glamorous heheh. And very tall, like I'd say 6'2.

This last episode was awesome! Gotta love "the Imp." He's such an incredibly well written character and the actor that portrays him has done a truly smashing job!

Another excellent episode!

I loved being able to see the baby dragon again emoticon

Good job converting the book to the small screen, just as with the first!

I agree, Aerwyn! Another great episode. Sometimes the hour seems to go by so fast as the story jumps from character to character. Is this a spoiler free thread? So much to talk about. emoticon

I'd too like to know what the consensus is on whether or not this is a "spoiler thread" as you asked, Berk emoticon I suppose we could always preface a "spoiler post" with a warning at the top so those not wanting to view the spoiler could scroll past?

On a different note . . .

I've deliberately tried to steer clear of formal thread discussions on the internet about the series, as the first thing I was hit with when curiosity seeking at the beginning of season 2 on what the thoughts and opinions of the general viewing audience is, was everyone complaining about all the bits that have been left out from the books thus far. There is no possible way that every little detail and character can be conveyed piece by piece to the screen. I look past those pieces that are left out, and simply enjoy the show for the fine production it is emoticon

Maybe we make a new thread specifically for GoT:Spoilers OK ... it's easier to skip a whole thread if you don't want to know than individual posts in a thread.

That said, I'm OK either way... though I'm not watching the current season, I'm a longtime fan of the books, there's no way they could possibly include *everything* ... but from what I've read, they're not actually *changing* anything ... just leaving out plotlines where they need to. I'm happy to discuss background of characters, motivations, WTF really just happened, etc.

Possible Spoiler Alert!


Thanks for your input Gnelle! emoticon Either way is good for me as well.

I did want to mention a couple of my favorite scenes this week though. So possible spoiler below for those who have not yet seen this latest episode or read the book.


   * * * * * * * * * *


The first of these was Brienne pledging herself to Cate's protection and defense, and Cate's response that Bri would always have a seat at the table of House Stark. The way the scene was executed brought tears to my eyes. Bri was devastated and lost following the murder of Renly, and through Cate's actions in terms of both welcoming Bri's allegiance as well as pledging in turn that she would not stand in her way when the time came for her to "deal" with Stannis, renewed the warrior's vitality and gave her hope and purpose once more.

Ok . . . I'll stop for now and let someone else chime in if they like, rather than take up the whole episode heheh emoticon
