Love Game of Thrones, are there any other book series like it that anyone would recommend? Thanks
Might helped if we knew what you liked about it. There are thousands of fantasy series out there, some obviously better then others. GOT might be the best out there so it might be hard to meet your expectations. Some people might say Steven Erikson because he writes really complex stories with tons of characters. At the same time I would consider Erikson nothing like GRRM in the way he writes. So depends on what you are looking for.
I look forward to this show more and more every week.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
really like it as well - really surprised that it is this good and seems to be getting better as the plot develops
Not sure anyone cares. It looks like I'm going to miss tonights episode. I really doubt I will have a recap of the episode until Tuesday.
Watch on HBO go or dvr one of the replays..no excuse too miss good TV in this day and age (excluding serious personal stuff that comes up)
I agree, but I'm drinking tonight and I have work in the morning, I cant watch it before tomorrow night at the earliest.
I'm looking forward to season 3. I think that season will end up being the best part.
Eye the world. So many parallel's to ASOIAF. You have Northern Borderlander's protecting against the blight, you have a savage race in the east, but separated by mountains instead of an ocean, more magic shit, you have an independent religious Army (oops small spoiler for future GoT), and Robert Jordan died before he could complete his series, just as GRRM is going to do (hope not, but most likely). Though GRRM has already taken steps that nobody can finish his work once he dies.
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Really liking these conversations between Arya and Tywin. Very entertaining.
Arya is a little badass.
I really like the girl they cast to play Ygritte. Jon needs to go ahead and bone that.
I would smash for sure.
Holy smash. That was not what I was expecting. I think I like that version better.
I was just thinking the same thing.
Freaking love Jaime Lannister.
I'm really glad that did that scene with him smashing dudes head in. That was so badass. Dude is chained up and still acting bad ass.
I loved his explanation of breaking vows. Such a smart ass.
This show it absolute outstanding. Outstanding. The acting, writing, interpretation/adjustments from the books are top notch.
anybody know that if you buy HBO if the rest of season 2 can be viewed on demand ?
Welcome to the blue board, Gator bro. Go ahead and buy the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. It's way better than A Song of Ice and Fire, IMO. And I love ASOIAF.
wow, they keep throwing the book out the window. I know non-readers won't care but tonights episode completely changes Jaimies character from the book. Jaimie is one of the most popular characters from the book for a reason but they are making him a real bastard in the show.
Qarth changes aren't really that big of a deal. Maybe they want to make Qarth more prominent. Even the north of the wall changes or Winterfell changes are pretty minor. Really just plot points, not like changing the very nature of a major character.
Ah well, I guess the show is still good based on it's own merits, just keep thinking about what we are missing.
At this point I am trying to put the book out of my mind.
I loved Jaime Lannister's scenes tonight. Easily one of my favorite characters on the show.
No, not available on Demand until after it first airs on HBO
Jaime seemed like a bastard in some parts of the book. I know they changed part of Jamie's stuff from the book, but I actually like the show's version better. It looks like they are dipping into the third book a little just so Jaime has some screen time for this season.
