    Game of Thrones News/Discussion/Speculation TAG Ep Spoilers

    From GRRM, it's happening, it's finally happening!

    "HBO has given the production order.

    They will be filming the pilot episode of A GAME OF THRONES.

    It's just the pilot so far. They'll need to see that before they decide whether to proceed with a full season's episodes. So let's all hope the pilot will kick serious ass. <snip>"

    Winter is coming!

    I just hope it is faithful to the books!!

    Given GRRM's involvement I have high hopes, even though it does take him away from actually finishing the books

          Yup. I wonder if it's still the plan that he'll write one ep per season, if it does go to order.

          It's high fantasy based upon George R.R. Martin's series A Song of Ice and Fire- think Lord of the Rings but R-rated, and way better.

          THR.

            Song of Ice and Fire, its quite a thrilling fantasy series. Martin isn't afraid to spend a book or more building a character up and then killing them off if it makes for better story telling.

              Still waiting for the books to finish GRRM...

              I can't say I'm a fan of starting movies or television series before the whole plot has unraveled (I'm looking at you Harry Potter!!), but if GRRM is involved then it may yet turn out okay. I have high hopes, although I have forgotten almost everything about the first book as it's been...hm...seven years since I read it?
              It was a good book, but I was going to wait till the last book came out before going back to read it again then reading the whole series. A wrench has been thrown in my plans!!

              *hem* Anyway, if it's HBO then they're going to make it properly or not make it all, that's the great thing about HBO, so it could be fantastic.

                Are you sure you would remember everything? Heck, I read it last year and I can't remember all the parentage hints that were dropped there. Haven't you ever wondered why Eddard said Jon was 'his blood' and not 'his son'?

                  Yeah, I had to print out a recap of the first book when I started the second. There is sooo much going on (in a good way).

                    Since it took me a minute to remember who Eddard was....I'm going to go with no.

                    But like I said I can only remember a few things...Like how I hated Jamie in the first book (*Shakes fist*), but he was my favorite in the third (*Shakes fist at Cerce* [sp?])and so on.

                      That is one of my favourite things about the series- I absolutely despised Jamie in the first book.....but come the third and he's suddenly one of the most sympathetic characters!

                      That just amazed me.

                        The wonderful thing about Joffrey was that I was sad when he died, since there wasn't any other high-visibility character to despise.

                            Winter is coming!!!

                            Review of a leaked copy of the pilot script for a the series. Gives me such high hopes for this show. Sticking to the source material is the right way to bring a book to the small screen.
