I watched the first episode and loved it... A week ago I hadn't heard of 'Game of Thrones' and I have managed to watch season 1 & 2 all week back to back, finally watching the last episode of season 2 on Saturday, evening.

Its been like one long movie for me, with everything fresh before I went into the next episode and now I have to wait a week before the next one.. How dare they.

I saw that too and his partner was missing as well.  Obviously they aren't following the books all that closely, just too much to put into a few episodes but I still think the screenwriters have done a superb job.

What i have done is watched season one, stored the characters images in my head and voices. Then I read the book and pictured the book in my head and read the book like the TV versions. So when there is speech in the book I read them in their voices and picture the setting

I actually did that too haha. I watched the first season, enjoyed it so much I bought the book and read that. Then bought the second book and tried to read it all by the time the second season came out. Got a bit sidetracked and ended up just watching the season instead of reading the rest of the book.

Completely natural.  I read the half the Aubrey, Maturin series before the movie "Master and Commander" came out and the last half of the series and the second time around I pictured the actors every time.  LOTR and The GOT as well.  We just can't help ourselves, especially when the show is well made as the above examples were.  Our amazing brains at work, I guess.  It strives for images and when one is offered our brains consume it over what we had pictured before without regard.

I've got a friend of mine who's staying at my place for a night or two.  We were just on television, nothing really on that we were interested in, so I asked him if he'd heard of Game of Thrones.  He had no idea what it was so I've started at Season 1 again with him.  Every five minutes, I hear him mutter, "Damn", "awesome", "wha--", and other similar phrases.  I think he likes it :P

I don't really watch tv much but I've become addicted to this show.  It's really great! I haven't read the books or even seen the first season so some of the storyline / character backgrounds I'm lost with, but I started watching the second season last week and just finished last night. I also had to watch the first episode of the 3rd season right away because I couldn't be left hanging like that. So....I guess now I've got to find the first season and start at the beginning. haha

Try and watch the first season as it was very good and answers a lot of questions ytou may have but I don't want to spoil it for you by divulging.  :innocent:
