    Do what i did, give in to temptation and watch it. The first 10 mins are really creepy, i was really tense watching it.

    Merged together a whole bunch of threads about the Game of Thrones series.

    I agree it looks great. Looking forward to it.

    aye his name is Peter Dinklage he's epic check out The Station Agent, brilliant film he was in. I remember when I first heard that they where making a TV show of GoT, I checked the cast saw Peter and FREAKED he's SO perfect for Tyrion (although tbh I thought they'd deform him a little more, Tyrion is supposed to be crazy ugly no?)

    Aye, Tyrion is supposed to be very ugly (Sansa in the books describes him as the ugliest person she has ever seen). Peter is a bit too good looking but otherwise I think he is a great choice for the part.

    Sansa's got messed-up standards. You'd think that after seeing Sandor Clegane Tyrion would be like a breath of fresh air.

    aye Sansa's wierd, she likes Joffery, so she quite clearly has no taste :P (Arya FTW) but I'm wondering if they didn't want to ugly him up, will they also not put in the bit in book...2 I think, where he gets the massive scar across his face?

    OMG can't wait only THREE FRAKKIN DAYS. Add on one for ripping and uploads and by this time next week I'll have seen the first ep

    Oh Arya... she's cool, and I think they chose the right girl to play her part too.

    Actually I don't think I've seen any actor choices I didn't like so far. I wasn't too keen on their choice for Jon Snow at first, but after the tasty 10 minute sneak-peek I'm quite convinced he can pull it off.

    Same. Once I saw these people act, I turned out pretty happy about the castings.

    I'd check the number first if I were you... he might still feel some bitterness and hook you up with Khal Drogo.

    In these times a series can be considered lucky to make it through a single season without getting episodes cut. I highly doubt they will do 5 seasons with a high budget series like this when tv stations can make millions with stupid and cheap reality soaps.

    Looking forward to the "getting his nose cut off" part.

    Well, if you get that, hook me up with one of the handmaidens. Doreah is smoking hot! Those scenes where she is on top of Dany or Viserys are pretty damned sexy. lol

    HBO went all out with the promotion with everything from sending fansites maester's boxes, to the internet stuff, to the food carts and the HBO store. Dan and David have full confidence in a 7 or 8 season series and have even discussed the final scene for the final season. Time will tell, but I'm betting that HBO greenlights season 2 on Monday.
