Game of Thrones


Recommended Posts

No GoT thread?? This is the greatest show on tv!

George R.R. Martin's best-selling book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" is brought to the screen as HBO sinks its considerable storytelling teeth into the medieval fantasy epic. It's the depiction of two powerful families -- kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men -- playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and to sit atop the Iron Throne. Martin is credited as a co-executive producer and one of the writers for the series, which was filmed in Northern Ireland and Malta.

Thanks for starting this thread. ( I always meant to do it myself but never got round to it).

*coughs* bits of it are filmed in my neck of the woods and one of my mates is an extra. Apparently he's off to write a 15 page backstory for the wiki of ice and fire about his character.

I'm currently rereading the books and have just finished a clash of kings. Once I've gotten through the books, I want to start a marathon box set session.

Love Jaqen and his voice, I squealed when he came back in season 5. "A man always pays his debts". A man should not keep a woman waiting. :D

I love Game of Thrones. Read the books and watched the show, but I think I prefer the show. Sometimes, the books get a little bit... boring at times, especially when I'm reading about characters I don't care about (I'm looking at you, book 5).

I do that too! I ended up skipping vast swathes of Jon Snow chapters because I couldn't give a rat's behind about whatever was going on at the wall and with the wildings. 

IMO Tyrion and to a lesser extent Arya get the best of the bunch.

Glad to see season 6 has picked up the pace. Past few seasons were so heavily restricted by George's verbose writing the seasons got boring.

But since the book hasn't been finished yet, hurray for better plotting!

I really hope there's more Jaime/Brienne but I fear they'll be squaring off against each other at the battle for Riverrun. Here's hoping Brienne sides with him.

Don't care for Bran. He's boring. Looking forward to more White Walkers action!

I want more Dorne too.  I was sad to see Prince Doran go, I thought he was one of the best written of Martins characters.  And I'd have loved to see Alexander Siddig acting opposite Oberyn.

Anyhow, here's my new bookmark which I'm a tiny bit in love with.

Gods, I hate what they're doing to Jaime's character.

They're deviating so much from the books now. What happened to his season 3 development? If he doesn't tell

Cersei

to piss off and fails to be swayed by

Brienne

, I'm going to flip tables.

Theory time!

Early in one of the seasons, it was said Cersei would lose all her children and be killed by her younger brother. Tommen is the last of the children to die, and Jaime will be the one to kill Cersei to stop her from becoming the Mad Queen (out of anger of losing Tommen she threatens to burn the entire city down). I'd say Brienne will end up putting Jaime down (maybe after a make out session? Hehe, thanks Bronn). As for the others... Jon or Sansa to kill Ramsay. Oh, and Rickon has to die too. And someone needs to tell Jaime Lancelot slept with Cersei too.

Now for a rant... Why did they cut out the part in the book where Jaime hits someone for calling Brienne ugly? Goddammit.

The show is good, and the plot is so complicated... how could a man even be able to put together such a story? Even though not all the books are out, I am sure that they have already been written down.

About the 7th season... what a disappointment! They might change their minds about it, though.

I was watching again old good season 6 and realised... we've seen lo little of Daenerys this time! Also, I personally don't believe that R. Martin is having the writer's plot. With so much going on in his universe, he must have had the whole thing planned months ahead the release of the first season of the show!

I don't like Game of Thrones there is too much sex and people are always killing and arguing. I prefer X-factor and Italia got talent.
