"Game of Thrones" HBO 9Pm EDT. The first episode was pretty good.
Check it out if you like antediluvian, fantasy dramas.
More death and mayhem!
what happ to the kid who got thrown out the window? did he die?
i wondered where i had seen the queen before: also a queen in 300. butnot a blonde.
she was also in the Sarah Conner Chronicles on Fox.
Good show.. I have to make use of the torrent since I no longer have the free preview of HBO..
R rated Lord of the Rings........I’m in
I had Showtime and I dropped it to get HBO.
A strange and violent tale... that I had to read.
This comes from a great fantasy series by George R. R. Martin. I got hooked by Game of Thrones, the first novel, when it came out in 1996, and I eagerly awaited the sequels.
They took longer and longer. I think the fourth novel came out in 2005, and now the fifth, and presumably not the last, is due out this July.
I don’t know if this TV series is a good thing or not. I’d like to see the book series finished. I don’t know if this will help push Martin into writing faster, or whether it will be a distraction from the original vision.
Any way, I recommend the books if you like really strong writing, some terrible things happening, but among the most powerful fantasy novels I have read. The downside, at the moment, is that the series isn’t finished. Probably not even half way finished, I suspect, although there is no indication how long it will be.
The first novel alone is worth reading on its own. Have a look at the reviews on Amazon.
Anywhere I can see it besides HBO? I don’t have HBO. I read the books and they were awesome. I’m a big medieval nut.
And don’t get too attached to characters..Martin is brutal to his creations heh.
>Good show.. I have to make use of the torrent since I no longer have the free preview of HBO..
That’s how I got my copy (snicker)
>I had Showtime and I dropped it to get HBO.
I have neither. Just downloaded my fave shows using bittorrent and watch it anytime I want. Dont want to give HBO a ratings point, especially with the anti-Palin docu set up for next year.
I’d read the series several years ago. The show looks entertaining so far. I hope HBO has some contingency plans for future seasons, since the author of the series seems to be struggling with a monumental writer’s block
I was reading on the HBO site that the kid did not die but was paralyzed.
This show is ok so far, but I can’t wait for Boardwalk Empire to come back on.
Now THAT is a show!
glas to hear it. i am hoping the kids wolf grows up and tears the bad guys a new one.
glad to hear it. i am hoping the kids wolf grows up and tears the bad guys a new one.
I caught the first last week but could not find it tonight. Don’t have HBO. Is it on another channel tomorrow night?
