I'm pissed now, but if I had a do over, I'd still watch it early. Seriously, I can't help myself.

I didn't spend all this money on my home theater to watch bullshit online. I think this show, in particular is gorgeous and will only watch it such. Thus, I'm looking forward to seeing it now.

He's part of the King's Council, the guy who's in love with Lady Stark.

Haven't read the books. but this is my take from the series...

Dude got friend-zoned by Ned Stark's wife back in the day. He's still hung up on her. I think that's who he was talking about while the 2 hos were going at it. Don't know what the deal was with her dating a brother that got killed, then married the other one. Maybe someone that read the book could clear that up. Also I think he's a eunuch. He mentioned getting a 'little scar' by the brother. So Ned Stark's brother cut his balls off?

If you guys like the show, go read the books! Well worth it if you are readers.

I picked up the first book yesterday. I've got a couple of other books to read first, but I'm looking forward to Game of Thrones.

I am a little confused by it all. I might have heard wrong but did he not say he was still in love with a blond woman but she was now getting it on with her brother? So in other words the Lanister woman.... Not sure. Would make sense seeing the ending of the last episode.

Its starting to get very interesting though. Looking forward to the hopefully epic battles when the Darthracki (spelling) manage to cross the water.

He stated that the woman he loved was getting it on with a man, who died in a battle. Then she got it on with his brother.

No Lanister's involved.

Absolutely. Everything the author writes, is done for a reason. Small details come back around later to actually mean something. The biggest difference between the books and the show thus far, seems to be the amount of "hints" the reader is given about characters. A lot of "things that make you go, hmm..." events in the novel. In the show things are more blatant, which isn't bad, it's just different.

tl;dr - Read the books if you want background info on characters.

Great show.

But, both my wife and I were Stunned by the what happened at the end of episode 9!
Did not expect that at all.

Pretty good show. I can't resist spoilers in tv series so I know what's in store for everyone. If they continue it will be a very cool show.

After I saw the first 3 episodes, I promptly went out and read all 4 books currently in print. Can't wait for the fifth.

Game of Thrones is an awesome show. I hope the ratings will be strong enough to warrant seasons for every book (though I guess they could combine books 4 and 5 into 1 season).

I'm halfway into the third book right now. I haven't actually seen any episodes of the show. I'm going to wait until the season comes out (DVD? Netflix) and have a GOT marathon weekend.
