I haven't seen the show.

BUT I read and loved the first three books. Up to that point it was one of my more favorite series. Then I got to the fourth book. That is one of maybe 5 books in my life I have not finished after starting it. There are just already so many story lines and characters in the first three books alone, then the fourth introduces a seemingly completely new group of eleventy billion characters and another plot. I made it about 35% through (according to Kindle) and gave up.

I will watch the show as soon as it is out to rent though.

Good stuff. A Feast for Crows is much slower than the other books and really leaves you wanting something more. However, the story picks up well again with A Dance with Dragons.

I'm looking forward to season 2 and The Winds of Winter!

Just finished Disc 2 of the DVDs. Man I wish I didn't have to wait for Netflix to mail them to me! I want to read the books, but I'm currently on book 5 of the Wheel of Time series, plus, I think reading the books would maybe ruin the show.

As a guy who read all the books I have to say that the show has only been elevated bc of it. Btw, am I a major pervert or is the "ugliest woman in Westeros" Brienne hot as hell both in and out of character (they had to uggify her considerably for the role, and I still have to put my hand out for SWMBO to slap whenever a trailer comes on screen).

Only 5 days left till the season 2 premier of GOT.

The ritual continues yet again:

i) a specially designated High Malt/High Gravity/High IBU/Ice cold Session home brew in hand. (Black IPA?)
ii) a few good buddies to watch the show with, since my girl isn't into to. (Sacrilege...)
iii) a fridge full of home brews and the set is complete. (More IPAs)

As the lights go off, the candle burns steadily in the background and all are with home brew in hand, the Season 2 premier of Game of Thrones begins...

Happy brewing to you all and may you enjoy this season as much as we did the first one, form what I hear, its gonna be quite the show.

Can't wait to find out who this new Alton Lannister is that they added to the show. I hope he doesn't show us how to make homebrew...

I don't read, so I didn't know this was a book series. I got into Season 1 after it was over, plowed through all 10 episodes, and am hooked. Very excited for Season 2.

I haven't been able to talk any of my big TV watching friends to get into this show. Will be trying to convert them, its too good.

how does the end of the 1st season line up with the book series (i.e., is the first season the 1st book?)

I am in the middle of Book 3 right now, and I cant put the thing down. I am so pumped for the show to start up again.
I found the the first season was exactly like the book. They followed it very well. I do hope they do the same for the second series as well.

I am just about to bottle my very first brew so sadly it wont be ready for Season 2 Episode 1.. but mayhaps Episode 2!

Lines up fairly well, with a little carry over into the early chapters of the 2nd.
