So I gave in and watched Game of Thrones

Or at least I'm halfway through season 2. Let the discussions commence.


I know I'm really bucking the trend here but I think Joffrey is my least favorite Lannister. If I had to pick my favorite Lannister I would say Tyrion.

Once I realized everyone and their brother watches it, it kinda lost it's value to me. It's very good though, I sat and watched the first season with a friend in one sitting, then found myself needing to know what happens in the second season, so i immediately dled and watched that one, I think if the whole series was out then I would have sat there for weeks and watched it without ever leaving my room

My favorite Lannister is the Kingslayer, actually I think he's my favorite character.

Gotta agree, wait til you're caught up with the end of this season, then spend the down time reading the books while you wait for next season. There will be spoilers for the show but they are better experienced through the books anyway.

Another thing I might mention, there is a particularly memorable part of the story about to be aired on TV (it may have last night for all I know, haven't watched yet). Really really try to not listen to anything GoT related til this blows over or it is a huge spoiler.

It felt wrong to delete Dyshade's post, but it felt wrong to leave it for DM to see if he actually gives a shit. So DM - DO NOT read the black text below if you care about spoilers. Also, Dyshade is an ass. --thefr0g

The Red Wedding!!!! And they did a brilliant job!!! I read Martins reasons for killing everyone... he said that he had always planned to kill Eddard Stark in the first book, and when he thought about it Robb was going to have to die as well so as to avoid the whole rote of Son goes on streak of vengeance for father. I think Arya will get all the vengeance the Starks need!! My opinion at least

Excellent episode.......

I have been following these books for almost 20 years. I easily forget that this is all new to some. Fucking Martin is a brute and likes to rip emotions from his readers, handily the best fantasy author living.

Plus I kinda get sick of not being able to talk about the fucking books because noone has read the fucking things. Every time you mention anything ahead of the show people look at you like your an asshat. The goddam books are years old, I have read every one of them at least 4 times. Spoiler alert, I just might mention something ahead of the show............ pick up the paperbacks and use your brain...... read the books..... Dances With Dragons has the most aggravating cliffhanger Martin has devised yet.

Eh.. I dunno. I'm in the Book of the Malazan series and it's giving him a run for his money. Also Steven Brust writes some kickass fantasy.

And I can understand dropping spoilers.... except that we are in a thread that had the express written purpose of saying "Hi guys, I'm halfway through season 2 of this story you all talk about!"

Had you made your own thread to discuss things in their entirety it wouldn't have been such a bad move, its his fault if he wanders into a discussion.

I dont mind spoilers personally, unless its a suspense novel or something like that. Granted this is not the norm. I hate detailed spoilers though, anyways yea sometimes you just gotta know, like when I was reading manga I'd have to stay in touch with the azns cuz they would get the shit a week before us. Just had to know what happened.
