A couple sneak peeks!
Game of Thrones Season 2 HBO GO Trailer - YouTube
Game Of Thrones Season 2: "Seven Devils" - YouTube
Only two and half weeks to go! I'll probably spend the sunday morning/afternoon watching season 1 on dvd.
Really hoping HBO continues and keeps the series going through the rest of the books.
While I haven't read the books I did quite enjoy season one of Game of Thrones - so I'm also looking forward to season two!
Hopefully I can remember enough of season one to jump straight back in to it. Yes its a good series but for some reason I don't feel like watching it all over again just to get me ready for the second instalment!
They're a good read honestly! I'm into book 2 right now, hoping to at least get mostly through it before the 1st rolls around. There's some subtle differences, but I enjoy the changed between book/series as it helps everything flow better on screen. (one of the BIG changes for example was Tyrion's "confessing" scene at the Eyrie - much more halarious on screen!)
Probably the only change I didn't like was when Tyrion takes command of the hilltribes in battle. Granted they didn't have time to really film a proper battle scene, but in the book, Tyrion does actually ride with them and fight against the Stark's forces. For a dwarf, he kicks some serious butt!
Mind you, I can't wait to see how the dire wolf 'pups' have grown this season!
I'm quite looking forward to meeting Stanis - I hope I've spelt his name at least somewhat like it's meant to appear! I've been told a fair bit about him and how important he is in the story so I think that will be interesting. Keen to know more about this Red Witch too.
And of course all the old favourites - Tyrion and his little group of followers, particularly!
Oh, Ayria as well - probably spelt her name wrong too, but I'm sure you know who I mean! I know a little about her story arc and I'm keen to see how it plays out.
Does Mr GRR Martin not like women given that they're all evil or have terrible things happen to them? Or is he just being representative of the times?
All my friends are telling me to see this but i dont know if i want to.After watching a couple episodes of legents of the seeker and the dnd movies i feel i will throw up if i see another one raping the fantasy setting.Is it really that good?
Praise be to the Emperor!!
Martin, the series author, has been heavily involved and had alot of say in how the series has been done so it's stayed pretty much as true to the book as both time constraints & on-screen limitations allow.
The biggest divergences are a couple of the minor characters getting minor name changes, (ie: Robert Aryen becoming Robin Aryen to avoid confusion with King Robert Baratheon), and one of the main battles being kind of a footnote.
The cast is excellent, and you'll fall in love with the character of Tyrion!
I know alot of people who haven't read the books found season 1 to be somewhat slow in terms of the overall action, but just keep in mind it's only the first book in a series of what will be 7 total! Season 1 is all about introducing the main players in the game for the Iron Throne and setting things up what is a much bloodier season 2! (A Clash of Kings).
Then the perverbial fecal matter really hits the fan if/when they can follow up with the 3rd season!
Quess ill peak through it.Thanks for the advice.
Praise be to the Emperor!!
