Yes, I agree that

Spoiler:
Jon Snow is also a hottie :nicenod:


And LMAO! Jamie Lannister vs Prince in Shrek! The resemblance is very striking.

I love the ravens as well, and the one with the 3rd eye is intriguing.

I've read all the books, except the latest one. I need to do that, but I've just been to wired to read.

Whatever you do, don't look around for spoilers. If you want to know what happens, read the books!!!

I thought they did a great job with the TV series. I'm looking forward to next season. :)

Arya and Tyrion are my favs.

I've only read the first book so far, and Arya is one of my favorites, if not my favorite as well. :)

After I finish reading the Sword of Truth books I plan to continue the Song of Fire and Ice series and I really hope I don't accidentally get spoiled before I do. :praying:

Hehe, I always mix up the series name--I tend to just call the series The Game of Thrones out of bad habit. :duh:

full story here!!

Quote:
Game of Thrones season 2 is still at least five months away so how could one possibly guess at the ratings numbers for a show that’s only been on the air for one season?  Aside from the shows already confirmed successes, the series will have several things going for it this time around that almost no other show on television has.  Sure the ratings are impressive and everyone involved with Game of Thrones, even on the periphery, is going to be as wealthy as a Lannister but let’s take a look at the factors that are driving these incredible numbers that I contend will only become more incredible in season 2.

It is Known, (It is Known)

The most obvious reason one might assume Game of Thrones will see a ratings bump in season two is the overall name recognition the series now commands.  Much like the ongoing presidential election, the more familiar a viewer is with your product or candidate, the more likely they’ll be to tune in.  Since the show’s premiere in April, the term ‘Game of Thrones’ has gone from minor obscurity (sorry WiC.net!) to a household name.  As a fan of fantasy, science fiction and escapism in general you would have thought that A Song of Ice and Fire would have been something I’d be familiar with in my personal travels.  But before 2010, I honestly can’t remember hearing of the series for whatever reason.  But these days I spend about an hour per day on Seattle bus routes to and from work and every morning without fail I see someone cradling one of the giant tomes and countless more could be listening to the audiobooks in their ear buds (as I prefer to do).  Now, this is far from a scientific poll of the general population but I can tell you that this surely was not the case as of last year.

Take a look at the official Game of Thrones Halloween album; do you remember anyone dressing up as Daenerys Targaryen before this show was on the air?  Not that it wouldn’t have been an awesome costume in 2009 but surely it stands to reason that the show has pushed the boundaries of what we used to call a ‘fantasy fanatic’.   The show is now being pumped by major news outlets, referenced on ubiquitous shows like SNL and The Daily Show and book stores feature the novels in the front window of their stores.   Game of Thrones is slowly but surely catching the eyes and ears of the masses and a popularity tipping point is less than a season away.


Once You’re Hooked; You’re Hooked

The first chapter in any long-form work of fiction is almost always about getting to know the characters.  Season one of the show focused a lot on the basic places, relationships and vocabulary of Westeros.  By the end of that season you were firmly invested in at least a few of the characters and had a general sense of the world as a whole.  That’s the hook!  Once you’ve decided that you care about what happens to Tyrion Lannister or Robb Stark then is there any chance that you won’t watch season two (or read Clash of Kings!) to find out what’s going to happen next?  Peter Dinklage won over so many hearts and minds he landed himself an Emmy for his portrayal of the sharp-tongued Imp.  Millions of people will tune in to find out what becomes of him next spring.  In this show, you never know who will live, die, get married, or betray their next of kin so the viewer really must tune in for answers.  Look at a uber-successful show like Lost where many people kept watching because they had no idea what was going to happen next (and arguably neither did the show’s producers!)  Fan’s mouths, new and old have been watering since the show wrapped it’s first season and very few are going to forgo a second helping.  Many are taking up the quest of reading the 1000+page each novels which is surely the biggest hook of them all!

Some interesting behind the scenes stuff:

The Official Production Diary

Quote:
There are no words.

I mean there are actually no words today. We are scheduled to have a night full of action – there is no dialogue, other than the occasional scream. We have nearly 200 extras on set this evening – charging all over the place and then coming to a sudden halt when the stunt coordinators blow on whistles..........

Oh and also, this is a must read if you have not read the books:

The Viewers Guide

There is an interactive map and descriptions of all the Houses and some history about them.

I know! GRR Martin is definitely not scared to kill off characters that people love.

On another note...I wonder how much screen time the Kingslayer will get in season two considering how little he's heard from in book two.

I cannot wait for season 2!!!

I think people are going to be very shocked if it remains true to the book as season 1 did.

While they didn't use everything from book one in season one, everything they showed was in the book. I'm assuming they will do the same with season/book two. Can't wait to see Tyrion as the hand of the king!

I think the Tyrion character is phenomenal. They have the perfect actor and he delivers the lines exactly as I "hear" them in my head when I read the books. I am also sympathetic towards him.... even if he is a Lannister :lol:

Cersei really shows her true colors in Book 2, and I cannot wait to see that in the show.

Book 2 was Tyrion's book, without a doubt. I enjoyed his character so much in that book! And Book 2 is also when a lot of the action starts to pick up, so I cannot wait to see how they incorporate that. Specifically in regards to

Boo and I are writing our game to coincide with Season 2.... hopefully, we won't get too far ahead of the show, but wow, so much material to work with! It was hard to decide.....

Keep checking here - we haven't revealed all of the roles yet because we are waiting for Season 2 to get going - didn't want to spoil anyone.

I just finally got around to watchIng this show.... Yes, I am a bit slow :P

I LOVED it, without a doubt my favourite show that's around right now, and there's quite a few I'm watching.

Khalesee (however it is spelt) is my favourite character, I can not wait to see what happens with her and the pet dragons next season, so I hope that is a big part of the series. I'm guessing the dragons are not so cute...

I was very shocked how many 'main' characters were killed off, my mouth was open in shock when Ned was beheaded :sobbing:

I can't remember the last show that made me love/hate the characters so much. I think I will not read the books until after the show is aired, the shock factor was a big reason I loved it so much. :)
