    It seems like you've answered your own question. The funny part is that Martin fans also turn their noses up at any NON Martin books. lol!

    They sure are. I was hooked from the very first one. Personally what I liked is that there are fantasy elements but there is also a ton of character development. Each character is layered and there is no "good vs bad" scenario which is great.

    April. We don't have an exact date yet, but you can bet it'll be on a Sunday; which means it'll be on the 3rd, 10th, 17th, or 24th.

    Very cool, captures the spirit of the series very niceely.

    Also found this new UK trailer.



    Game of Thrones will air on SKY Atlantic in April, no exact date, but speculation has that it will be around the same week each episode airs in the U.S, so there should be little delay in us getting the episodes in glorious hi definition. And because I have an excuse, here's a trailer for SKY Atlantic, a new channel, free for SKY customers, where SKY have made a deal to show all HBO programming on this channel, including Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, which is essentially HBO UK, something I've wanted for years.

    And just in case anyone was in any doubt about the violence or sexual content of the show, this being a faithful adaptation of the books on HBO, the producers say if the adaptation was released as films they would probably be rejected from an R rating, the content being so strong.

    Well seing as how GRRM is a exec producer and writer on the show, and he says the series is faithful, it's a fair bet they will be.

    I'm just glad HBO picked this up, they've always proven to be reliable in terms of quality. If it got picked up by some regular cable channel it would have been transformed into who knows what, as was done with another favourite novel series of mine, Sword of Truth.

    I have no doubts this will stay as faithful as possible to the books with GRRM and HBO at the helm.

    Ooh. Nice vid.
    Khopesh for the dothraki? (always imagined them as Steppe horesemen/Mongols, then the card game kinda made them a mix of that and native Americans *shrugs* probably a time for a re-read )

    And more of the Mountain-that-rides in motion!
    (to be honest, tho', I was hoping that the Viper would win... )

    I wonder who that is, near the end, wearing what looks like lamellar armour.

    Gah! Show it already! (so they can start on the other books...the ones w/ my favourite House in it: Greyjoy )

    Who would you choose for role of Brienne (possible season 2)
    http://winter-is-coming.net/2011/01/...n-two-brienne/

    I'd choose either Katee Sackhoff or Gwendoline Christie of the ones suggested.

    Katee surely has the acting skills for the part, but is a little to small.
    Gwendoline would be perfect for Brienne lookswise, but I haven't seen her act yet.
