HBO: Game of Thrones: Homepage
I am gonna try it. I saw like 15 minutes of it on the HBO website and it looks interesting. The scenes are physically beautiful.
i am gonna catch it....i think its time for a new hbo series that is over the top
Yeah, it looks like great fun.
I particularly like serialized programs like these because they give the authors enough time to craft very complex plotlines, and they also give the authors enough literary story-space to really work on highly complex characters, too.
Not that those elements cannot be done in 90 minutes but given 900 minutes a whole lot more of that kind of complexity, both in plot and character, is possible.
I am a fan of the books, so I'm concerned about this not living up to my expectations.
On the other hand, Martin is involved in the series, so hopefully that will help.
I'm certainly going to watch and hope it's good (being dvr'd right now).
Watching it now. Ive never read the books but so far so good.
I am so looking forward to this tonight!!!!!
It's the antidote to the truly vile and noxious Camelot.
Well, my first impression is that there's a lot of missing story in the first episode.
It's hard to say how much of that is the show and how much is due to my knowing the books and knowing how much they left out.
Still, it seemed as though there was a good deal of unexplained actions in the first episode.
Hopefully it's more me than any lack in the show and I can get over it as the season progresses; or perhaps the way they are going to write the show won't require many of the more detailed explanations and subtexts of the books.
I'll have to get some opinions from people who haven't read the books
i watched it....great confusion....will have to watch it again....
I noticed the same thing. On the other hand, this show is aimed more at people who have not read the books than fans of them, so the first episodes have to be designed to bring people into the story. They may decide to flesh out the subplots later in the series.
One thing I consider a plus is that HBO has already committed to a second season, with production and filming already begun. That will definitely give the show time to build an audience.
