Two weeks to go, Season 3 is about to begin.  This makes PA very happy :yes:





edit: for new viewers to this thread, please keep in mind that many people who watch this show do not live in America and must wait a day or so before they can see what you have already seen.  As such, it is always best to use spoiler tags when posting details about the latest episode or future plot lines (especially if you have also read the book/s and have an idea of what will happen).  If you are unaware of how to use Spoiler tags, they should look as follows:

[spoiler]This is a spoiler![/spoiler]

Without the code box, the spoiler should show up as an invisible wall of text that can only be accessed by clicking on a button.  This is just a good way to show respect to people who may not have seen what you have seen.  Please be considerate, and enjoy season 3 (I know I'll definitely enjoy it).

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

My daughter is completely 'hooked' on this series. She's read the books and is salivating for the TV series to begin again. Personally, it's a tad too dark for my liking...seems like all the good characters simply get killed (too depressing). I must admit, some excellent acting though.

I am very new to Game of Thrones and when I say new I mean I know absolutely zero about it.

I ended up buying season 1&2 on eBay (£6 cheaper than Amazon) yesterday morning and they are here today, so hopefully I will make a start tonight.

I think I mentioned this to you before, but I do envy you right now.  I wish I could go back and watch the show from the start for the first time again.  Then I'd be shocked and surprised and delighted by what they were doing.  Have fun :)

OK, let’s get started.

Normally as a rule I am not a big fan of mythical, dragon slaying, goblin type programs or movies, so as you can understand, I did have my reservations before watching any of them last night.

I was determined to make a start and give them a chance even if I didn’t like the first episode.

This is how last night panned out for me: I cooked the family dinner so it was a late start, by the time my wife returned back from teaching her Yoga class and we ate dinner it was 21:30hrs. My wife wanted to watch something in the other lounge and I pulled the first DVD from the box and started at the very beginning.

A late dinner and a few glasses of wine & ended up watching four episodes before I dragged myself to bed.

Bloody brilliant.. How did this manage to evade me for this long?

Everything about it, the cast, landscape, so many sidelined stories going on, the budget must be massive, and boy is it graphic.

The cast and landscape drew me in at first and then stories started to kick in.. Character acting is briliant. It drew me in, I was thinking if I could live back then, imagining the climate, violence etc..

PA... thank you my friend, its one of the best things I have seen on TV in a long long time. :tu:

No prizes for guessing what I'm watching tonight... :yes:

Yey. Xsas is a fan.

Once you're finished GoT, gimme a shout and I'll point you in the direction of around 10-15 shows of the same caliber. Breaking Bad is the best show ever made. Ever.

I might have to do that, because I don't have the will power to pace myself and watch Season 1 & 2, so it keeps me busy until the Walking Dead Season 4 starts.

I seem to have hijacked this season 3 thread.

LOL.  It's not a real spoiler that will ruin anything for you but I am being careful.   You'd love the books I think and the two are not is anyway mutually exclusive. As an aside,  I bought my Kindle because of these books (they are seriously large) and it was the best buy I ever made.
