So nothing on this since all the excitement that first week.

I did watch that first episode a little more focusedly a second time, just before the second time.

First, it's not that hard to get into, I just wasn't really paying attention when I watched the pilot that first time.

Second, it's awesome. I love the massive scope. I love the political intrigue. I love the variation between cultures. And Winter hasn't even come yet.

Between this and The Killing, Sunday night TV is back to being a great way to wind down the weekend.

Finished watching the second episode last night, and am about to download the third today. I've told all my friends about this show and how damn good it is.

Third episode was the worst of the bunch so far.

I was just reading Bill Simmons' NBA playoff column with referernces to quotes from The Wire, at least one of which was from Councilman Tommy Carcetti, who when I read it and thought of him, realized that he's Peter Baelish, the squirmy whorehouse owner who clearly has some history and feelings for Ned Stark's wife Catelyn.

I never would have placed it had it not been for reading that line, thinking of Carcetti, and envisioning that same grimy smirk that he made as Baelish, only this time with a goatee, when explaining how he for once knew something the other guy didn't.

Im assuming you havent read the novels.. so watch out for spoilers..

The show is progressing identically to how the novel does, so all the novel readers know of the plot twists, future events, and ending. Also future seasons' spoilers, seeing as how Season Two has already been greenlit..

Hey, what's been going on in the show so far? How is it? Where are they at?

I've read all the books but haven't had time to watch the series yet.

they are on the third episode. Ned just arrived at king's landing, Catherine has shown Ned the dagger and is now headed north, Tyrion has visited the wall and is headed south, Ayra is learning the water dance, and daenyrious(sp?) is pregnant.

things should really be picking up next episode when tyrion and cat meet.

Yeah, I'm fine with that. As Cate was leaving Ned pointed out that Baelish clearly still had feelings for her, and he said something to Ned about being cut up the belly by Ned's brother fighting over her, so it's clear that they have some kind of a past.

I don't fret spoilers much. I've always felt the good telling of a story is at least as interesting as the story itself. That's why I watch the same movies more than once, and read the books more than once.

Lena Headey is so much hotter as a blonde.

I had almost forgotten that she was Sarah Connor

Just looked up the pics cause I wasn't sure who she played. I know she's the Queen. I'm not familiar with her from anything else, but just from a quick google image search, I'm saying I like her better as a brunette. Really dig the tattoos too. She's much hotter from what I saw there than I would've guessed had you just said the queen is really hot.

You can also see her naked as the Queen in 300. She's definitely hot.

I wish I still had an interest in reading fantasy series because I'd have read this series by now. I'm 4 or so books behind in the two series I did follow so I doubt I'd ever get around to this. Too bad.
