It's been about a year since I reread the series again and the first episode looked spot on.  I'd like them to impart a bit of time passage though.  That month of travel for the royal caravan seemed to be only take a day.  That's been a peeve of mine in many recent productions.  Sense of time passage.

I watched part of one episode last night. The poor boy at the end you are right.  Very entertaining though. With all these new 'period' shows on cable now, this one I really liked.

Of all the period pieces currently showing (Game of T's/Camelot/Borgias) I am liking the acting, storyline, and general "feel" of this one best. Perhaps it's the freshness of the story vs. the overdone Camelot, or the believable character plots vs. the historically backed Borgias. Can't say why. Still...enjoying each of them and giving a big HUZZAH! for the networks creating these loverly series. ;D

   On April 19, 2011, after airing only one episode, HBO announced that it had renewed Game of Thrones for a second season.-Wikipedia

I'm hoping they can stretch it for 3+ seasons to cover the entire series in decent depth.  There's so many story lines that intertwine.

The second episode on Sunday night was impressive. I am addicted just after two episodes.  ::)  ;D

Just curious but who is everyones favorite character so far? Is it a different one from when you read the books?
I think they did the casting particularily well.

Arya Stark and Tyrian Lannister (I think I have both names right) are my favoites so far, though Daenerys is climbing up there, too.

Yeah Arya Stark definitely. And I didnt think that I would like the actor that plays Jaime Lannister? But I think he is GREAT in the role!

Definitely Tyrion and Daenerys.  Tyrion is great start to finish.  He sees the Game for what it is and doesn't take things too seriously, unless it needs to be taken serious. Daenerys is developing nicely, in character and womenhood.  She's certainly asserting herself as a wife now.

Right, Tyrion was cast well. It doesnt seem as if anything gets past him!
