Uber excited for sunday. Can't wait to start piecing together some more of the story. I believe I will have to partake in a barleywine for this event.

I originally found this extremely aggravating; however, now appreciate the new storylines. Still, I can't help but to be a bit saddened when some of these great characters are killed off.

It will be a frustrating few years waiting for the next book to come out to see what has happened to one of my favorites and how the plots pan out.

Yup, its how he does things. A very different but yet more realistic style to epic writing.

About the books, at least we still have GRRM alive, J R R Tolkein is dead for example and his son didnt exactly do a good job continuing his fathers legacy. (I cant wait for the Hobbit to come out.)

Super anticipating Sunday, Premier of Season 2, the Ritual Continues yet again!

Brew in hand and Show on the Big Screen...

Happy brewing to ya all, enjoy the Show!

Didnt read the preceding pages so I have no idea if this was already said but I really hope GRRM is alive long enough to finish the series. The time between publication dates has been getting longer and longer so Im honestly not sure if he will finish it. It took him 5 between A storm of swords and a feast for crows and 6 between feast for crows and dances with dragons. So does that mean 7 until winds of winter and 8 until book 7? He will definitely be dead.

Oh well, at least we have season 2 premiere tonight.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I am sure he has it well planned out unlike Tolkein for example.

I any case, Tonight is The Night: Game Of Thrones, the ritual is on!

Prepare yourselves, gather the desired companies, grab brews, dim the lights and enjoy to the maximum.

Happy brewing to ya all and I am sure this thread will be full of responses on how awesome this season 2 premier will be.

I don't have HBO and haven't yet seen any of the episodes of Game of Thrones, but it is one my favorite fantasy series. I've heard and read that HBO has done a great adaptation, but I would think Book 1 would be the easiest to go from book to screen. A clash of Kings will also translate well, but after that GRRM started pumping out side characters and plots that didn't really change the main plot (at least not that we have seen yet).

I'll be purchasing season 1 as soon as this semester ends. I don't know how well it will hold up to the story, but I'm going to give it a chance.

Also, HBO signing on to this project is IMO the best way to motivate GRRM to finish the series. He's been dragging his feet and this will actually give him a deadline. Frankly, he needs to get Dany out of Mereen and back to Westeros. I have high hopes for the final two novels in the series, but there is just so much plot to be wrapped up; I don't see how he does it in two books.

It's a very good adaptation. I have been very pleased. You could always download it...might be breaking a law...

I also don't know how he is going to wrap it up. A lot of unfinished plot lines but Dance of Dragons was definitely an improvement over book 4.
