Anyone catch the first episode? Premiered Saturday night.

Thought it was pretty good. A lot going on. Hopefully we get a closer look at those blue eyed Jersey Devils from the beginning - Forgot what they're called, but I want to see them go fuckin' apeshit.

Still have to figure out who's who - A lot of names. Not big on fantasy, so it's hard for me to keep track of all these people, but. Seems like HBO and company know what they're doing. Sean Bean is the shit, :popcorn:.

Sean Bean is the number one reason I want to see, since One does not simply walk into Mordor...

I would watch it, but I dont get HBO. And there doesnt seem to be any way to stream or buy episodes without an HBO subscription. Most people let iTunes or whatever sell episodes at some reasonable price, but not HBO. Just not a strong decision by HBO.

I'd torrent the thing, but HBO is pretty diligent about nailing people for torrenting their current stuff, so I think I'll pass on that too..

Dothraki Barbarian King Khal Drogo!

...I want him to go apeshit too, :popcorn:. Not on his pretty little queen, but. On everyone else, :devil:.

I think they were called the White Wlakers...

anyways, that was the only thing I found interesting about it. It's a bit too much of Soap Opera to me.

I don't mind a soap opera from time to time, just depends on the elements and who's doing the screaming and yelling.

But HBO is ridiculously pricey imo, even with the specials and short-term rates. If the show gets solid review it would make more sense for me to grab it on blu ray.

Loved the hot blonde chick, she felt SOOO freakin young to get naked. Good stuff.

The last 2 minutes with the queen was pretty badass, I don't think that boy is dead...

The boxing is what does it for me.

That, and Boardwalk Empire. The special's, to a lesser extent. They've got one coming up called...Talking Funny? Or something like that. Where Rock, Seinfeld, Gervais and C.K. are going to sit and talk about I-don't-know-what. But it should be good.

I thought it was fucking awesome. Anyone comparing this to a soap opera is crazy.

I don't think the boy is dead and yes I want to see the barbarian king go fucking nuts!! He looks like he's on the brink of killing everyone all the time. I think once everyone starts going after the throne shit is gonna get crazy... and I'm pumped that the new queen got petrified Dragon eggs, because you can't have Dragon eggs without Dragons!!

Lol, you didnt know it was based on that series of books? Thats why its getting all the press - its one of the most popular fantasy series out there.

The series is pretty good if you are into fantasy. Its much darker than Tolkienesque high fantasy, and better written than most fantasy (which doesnt say much at all).

No I don't read High or Dark fantasy. Sounds odd, but I'm not really a fan of fantasy or science fiction. There are exceptions however, but hearing people rant and rave about how good the series is/was has been on the periphery of my attention for awhile.

I just found out Sean Bean was in it, I'm not really up on my insider news.

A goat? Do you mean the baby wolf they found?

I didn't realize that the actor that's playing Kahl Drogo is also the guy playing Conan the Barbarian. I have VERY high expectations for that movie.

I'm so glad this series has a super natural element to it. I just want to see a dragon or an ogre fuck some shit up.

true blood season 3 was great
There was probably like 6 storylines going on in that one, and the only one that people cared about was Sookie's, and maybe jasons. Tara's storyline was freaking horrible, and so was the changing families. They sidetracked jessica's too much as well.

Wasn't that a goat chained to a stick at the bottom of the castle?
