Okay, one more. The HBO mini-series "Game of Thrones" looks to be a possible winner. Starts this late winter....       http://www.hbo.com/game-of-thrones/index.html

If this is based on the book, I definitely want to see it!

It is based on the books, I understand went to great effort to cast the characters well....unlike the Tudors.

  Hey, if it's on HBO it's a big plus for me (free with my cable package).  I'm getting tired of having to rent or buy DVD's because a series is only on Showtime.

I just ordered HBO, specifically because I DO NOT want to miss this series.
I was also looking at the t-shirts...I like the one that says "winter is coming"....though right about now those words arent the most comforting,lol. ::)

I have been looking over the trailers and gone on a couple of sites to see casting. I think they have done very well with the casting, probably because the author is involved?
In particular I thought Jaime Lassiter was exactly as I would have pictured him and Sean Bean makes an excellent Eddard Stark. Just to name a couple.

I have been waiting for somebody to do something like this for years. Unfortunately, no cable for me. Guesse I'll have to wait for Netflix. Blasted darnations.

Holy cow, this show was good! Hubby is a HUGE fan of the novels, so we got HBO just to watch.  He was entranced, and honestly, I need to go read the series now.

After the season ends.  Don't want to ruin the story on myself, and it's supposed to stay true to the first book.
