    Since neither character does anything during the first book it seems like a weird thing to emphasize. Actually, it's barely established that they know each other, other than they travel in the same circles. It's not like they have any scenes together.

    I'm more curious about what they do with Stannis, since he's not in the book at all, and hasn't been cast. Will they ignore him? Or will they play him up even more?

    I'm sure he'll be mentioned just as much as he is in the book, which is quite a bit.

    Sepinwall and Feinberg say that the girl who plays Arya is awesome.

    They liked all the kids, Sepinwall even had nice things to say about Sansa.


    And then he posted this in the comments

    I don't LIKE Sansa. I should make that clear. But she is the kind of character (the spoiled, shallow teenager who's constantly causing problems for others because of a lack of wisdom and maturity) who, on a lesser show, I would be incredibly eager to be done with as quickly as possible. (See, for instance, Erica's son on "V.") And while Sansa is pretty irritating, the ways in which she's irritating are interesting. I don't like her, but they at least make me understand why she's the way that she is.

    Ditto for the Lanister twins, when I have only slightly more use for the kind of wicked schemers they represent on lots of other shows. Where here I enjoy their scenes just as much as the more likable characters.

    Spoiler:

    Of course he has that single scene, but it's pretty much there to set up the next book. Looking at the first book only, Renly is just the King's younger brother who hangs out at court for a while. His most notable action is leaving.

    I imagine they'll just have some scenes where Loras and Renly are in the background at a party or whatever, hanging with each other.

    Yeah, she seems about perfect. Apparently she taught herself how to use a sword w/ her left hand since Arya was a lefty in the books. All the kids, especially the Starks, seem to be very well cast. The only one I'm a little worried about down the road is Jon.

    I meant as an actress, they specifically singled her out for praise. As well as Daenerys and all the people you'd expect (Bean, Dinklage, etc.)

    Haven't listened to it yet, but Sepinwall and Feinberg talk about the show for 20 minutes at the end of their podcast this week.

    Feinberg's read the first book and is working through the second, Sepinwall has not and will not until the series concludes.

    They both loved it, although I found it interesting that Feinberg mentions that there's a new scene that establishes a relationship between 2 characters that he didnt if it was even in the books and it makes me wonder if we will be getting explicit mention that

    Alright Sunday, hurry up and get here. I've read the books, I've seen the trailers, and I've heard the praise. Whoever said patience is a virtue never had to wait for a new HBO series. I'm expecting a Six Feet Under/Deadwood/The Wire hybrid.

    Really, I just want Stringer Bell, Omar, and Michael C Hall involved in this series. Don't care how.

    Was at a sneak peak event here in a local theater and saw the first episode, they sure packed a ton into 60 minutes.

    I think if you're a fan of the books you'll like the show. While some details were changed they captured the overall feel pretty well.

    I can't speak for non-fans although anecdotally the couple who sat next me came in knowing nothing about the books and liked what they saw.

    Done! :D

    Yeah I will most likely see this a day later via some "other" channels. But it is looking damn good, if it is done as nicely as The Walking Dead we will have a winner.

    Some own opinions:

    - Preview was good, bit disappointed with the sword 'ice', looked too normal.

    - Was wondering who would play the man mountian Gregor since his borther Clegan was pretty big but it looks like Conan Stevens could pull it off.

    - Doubt there are any pics of Brienne yet, but are there any ideas who could play the big lass with the lovely eyes?

    They didn't cast Brienne for season 1. DOn't think she was in the first book at all. Her, Stannis, Davos, Mellasendre, & Beric Halfhand are some good juicy roles they'll need to fill if season 2 gets the green light.

    Additionally, HBO is streaming all their shows and movies for subscribers... I feel like I could completely cancel Netflix and not miss out on anything.

    I would give HBO so much money just for this show, but it's impossible for me to pay them without having a cable subscription. I have TWC for internet, but the cheapest cable plan they offer is $62 without HBO. I would gladly pay like, $30 a month for just HBO shows if they would let me stream it, but that isn't an option. Curse you cable, curse you.

    Yeah, it's very much a necessary evil. Which is pretty par for the course as far as cable goes.
