The TV show is great, but the book gives some scenes that the show just can't recreate.. Reek reek rhymes with weak. :(

I have loved the show since it first came out and ordered the books a few weeks ago. I'm about 450 pages into book one and it is good but so far season 1 covered the information really well.

The first season is the closest to the book season 2 and 3 diverge from the plot more. Not that it makes the show bad (cause it is great), but there are certain things you get even from book 1 that you don't get in the tv show.

You don't get all the speculation about Jon Snows parents in the show that you get in the book, but I'll stop there because I don't want to let go possible spoilers.

I have noticed some talk/hints about that already in book one that I didn't notice in the show. I think that show had the hints but it was way too subtle where when you read it they make a bigger deal out of it. I have a theory on it already but I agree that I don't want to ruin it for anyone else.

Without question

Brienne, who has probably the least personality or character development, is still far more interesting then any lotr character

Watched season 1 and 2 about four times each. Have watched every episode of this season twice.

That's when you know you have a great show. Only series that I've ever re-watched prior was Dexter which is the only TV series in the same stratosphere as GoT.

that would seriously piss me off, however he has said that he has told the producers of the tv show how it will end so we'll still get a rough idea of what he was getting at all these years

Or you could buy it. If half of the people that download illegally would buy something then they could include more battle scenes and make sure that the show was done right. It is currently the most illegally downloaded show in the world. HBO for 3 months cost $45 or a season on Blue ray is $50. Well worth it.

I use HBO GO to watch it and buy the dvds, mugs and shirt. It's the only time that I'll go that far to buy that much merchandise and it's worth it. Game of Thrones is simply amazing.

The only character I'm not really interested with their storyline is Sam Tarly. Everyone else I'm at least somewhat interested in their storyline and character development.

I have HBO and I bought the first 4 books so far and may get the xbox game. Sam seems like a boring storyline but obviously he plays some important role in the story for them to put him into the show.

Also its starting to get a little more sexual in terms of what they show...they always have been like spartcus in terms of sex showing...but now they are showing full trimmed beaver...other shows that pushed the boundaries they had overly full bushes so you didn't see it all

It amazes how many people worry about paying $3 a month for XBL.
Do I think that you should have to? No.
Is it a big deal or would it affect my decision? No
You pay for what you get in this instance IMO.


Exactly. I pay $25 through a guy that works for microsoft. My $2.08 cents a month is well worth the experience. Even if I paid full price I would still rather pay more for a better experience. I had a PS3 and Xbox 360. My PS3 collected dust after I got bored with The Show.
You can't see how people have a problem paying 3.00 a month for XBL yet you pay 2.08. GTFO thinking you can judge people for taking advantage of something when you do the same.
