We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

just looked something up on wiki and accidentally ran into a major spoiler.
it pissed me off that i found out that way, but is something i'm really looking forward to.
after that, though (which, imo, was probably the biggest spoiler i was curious about), i decided f-it. and read for about 2 hours jumping from page to page.
1 - i have got to get my ass in gear and read the books.
b - if the shows follow the storyline as close as they seem to be, it's going to continue to be badass. [stoked]
well, her full name is nymphadora tonks, so, she probably wants to smash you as well. and anyone else walking around.
I always laughed my ass off at that name.
Season one followed it to the T. Season two... Not so much.
yeah, i read book 1 and saw seasons 1-2, and from what i remember, season 1 was exactly like book 1.
but from the bunch i read yesterday, season 2 changed a few things. i didn't catch anything major, but i also just read from wiki and interwebz, not the actual book, so i easily could have overlooked something.
That happened to me too. I learned a hard lesson that day. Wanted to smash my computer screen,
I hardly ever watch shows live so it doesn't really matter, but GoT or Walking Dead? If I'm not mistaken, they are on at the same time.
Yea there were a lot of changes in Season 2. While I wouldn't say they were major changes, they certainly were different than the way they were presented in the books. I have a feeling we are going to see even more departures from the books as the series progresses.
I'm just hoping that most of these changes will just be to present the series in a more watchable, succinct way - i.e. without confusing too many viewers - rather than holistic changes to the storyline.
What action figures? The cast posing with them.
Walking Dead sucks so this is a no brainer.
Characters and storyline are good but the premise of the show is a little weak.
No way the virus could have spread and caused as much chaos as it does in the show. The military could easily gun down gangs of walkers that move that slow and uncoordinated. And besides, it never would have gotten to the point it did without a quarantine going into place. And when they meet the guy in the CDC he really has no idea how the disease works at all or if its even a virus or fungus or bacteria? Please, I give our researchers more credit than that
The only way this show makes sense is if the disease is a result of a massive attack that was spread airborne and in which 99% of people became zombies overnight
I don't even think the characters or story is good. I hate every character and want the zombies to win.
I'm with Aussie. I found the walking dead to be boring, and only lasted one season. When Darabont left that was all she wrote.
People just rave on about it and there are so many shows out there that are better.
Walking Dead ends the same day GOT begins.
There is no comparing the shows. GOT is on a completely different level that TWD
GoT> walking dead because of the nudity alone.....
Does the identity to Jon Snow's mother get revealed in DWD?
If it does please just say yes or no.
I'm only asking because the current show runners, David Benioff and DB Weiss basically had to answer that question when they had their first meeting with GRRM.
I could see Martin going in a different direction that everyone's theory just because he is a dick.
I might hit you up after I finish DWD. I'm glad I didn't venture onto the world wide web.
I accidentally looked up Jeyne Westerling and stuff was spoiled for me.
This is the Grantland interview with the current show runners that piqued my interest in the identity of Jon Snow's mother.
D.B. Weiss and David Benioff tell Andy Greenwald the tale of pitching the 'Game of Thrones' series to HBO suits and then the five-hour lunch with author George R.R. Martin that brought the project to life.

Two more days....
It would definitely be bad writing. He has left so many clues there is no way it was an accident.
Damn that is a cool website.
I was on the right track, but I would have never been able to remember all those details.
