Really? I though it would be one of those epic one-off things, but this is good news for fantasy fans. Now they don't have to rush plots and leave gaping holes in the narrative.

Yes, I do, and for good reason.You really don't know anything about the books or the show, aside from the lone hour of your life that you spent watching it. Why would HBO spend tens of millions of dollars for an "epic one-off" thing? There's another 2700 pages of story to go on after the first book, with another 1000 coming out in July. And the whole first season has already been shot, so regardless of whether or not the second season got picked up, there weren't going to any more or any less "rushing of plots" or "gaping holes" as a result of the show getting picked up. Again, you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about.

Steve,

It doesn't matter who you start because you have a horse shoe up your ass so far I'm not really sure how you get through the day. You must be gay.

I'm putting a cap on my distaste for cunts like you. Hence my editing.

2nd episode was great!The only character seeming out of place is Cersei. In the book she is a super bitch with tons of emotion. In the show she is a bitch, but pretty emotionless

She was still at home in Winterfell, in the castle. They were out in the godswood, which is where the northern people pray and reflect to the old gods. It's just a small park type place, but it was back at the castle, not out on the kingsroad. Catelyn stayed behind with Bran to monitor him and run the castle, but the meeting was to discuss where she'll be going and who she'll be going with.

It's gotta suck a little not having read the book. Well I guess not since you don't know what you might be missing. So far I think they have done a great job with casting and writing. But it's funny when my wife points to someone and asks who it that and I realize that the show has yet to introduce that person by name but I know who it is. Have they even made mention that the guy Jon Snow hugged was Robb? I have watched ep 1 twice and ep 2 once and I have yet to hear his name. Also I have figured out who Theon Greyjoy is as well and I know he has not been named yet. And Tommen and Myrcella!

I think Robb is named a couple times, but maybe not. They haven't given him a whole lot to do. Theon is such a **********, he looks a little too much like Robb for my taste. Ilyn Payne took me a few seconds to figure out, and he definitely isn't imposing enough. He should have been closer to the Hound's size. I think they're trying to avoid naming too many people (like Tommen and Mycerlla) because the names are unique, and difficult to remember as it is, and much more so when you don't get to read the name and commit it to memory. I've liked explaining the show and clarifying things for the few people I know who are watching but haven't read the books, but its hard not to get too spoilery, and it does seem like a near impossible task to only watch the show and have a good idea about what's going on. HBO has put out a ton of extra material and promo stuff, and have websites dedicated to the families and who is in them and what houses are loyal to others, but without an extra source of information I don't know how anyone could come close to grasping everything that's thrown at the viewer.
