    I watched the first episode of the new 'Game of Thrones' TV series based on George R R Martin's books, has any one else seen it and what did you think of it?

    I've seen it, and I loved it. It certainly lived up to my expectations, and I felt the characters, the scenery and the atmosphere was spot on.

    I must agree, the feel of the atmosphere was perfectly executed, I also think that the casting is spot on.

    Watched first 2 episodes and it really looks promising, I hope they will evolve the plot well and it won't be a disappointment... I think I'll keep watching it and see how it goes :)

    Re: Game Of Thrones

    Season 3 is almost here and I am loving this show. I've paid for the season pass to help support this amazing show. I'd rather pay to help get really high quality TV made, rather than seeing more and more reality shite on all the time.

    The trailer for season 3 is . Looks good!

    I can't wait either. Though I know it will be no time at all before I'm waiting again for the next season :(

    We're into season 3 now so almost halfway (?), I just hope that HBO are able to afford such an expensive show so we can get an entire story arc and not have it run out of funding after say 5 seasons. That would suck majorly. So if you like the show, don't just download it for free, consider paying to show your support so it gets done. I've paid for a season 3 pass and will go back and buy the other seasons too over time.

    Overall seasons 1&2 were pretty good but at speed Martin's (not) churning out the books the momemtum wont last. Casting has been pretty good as well. Only issue for me with them has been obsession with nudity at every opportunity. I'm not prudish at all but does EVERY scene (or so it seems lol) need nudity?

    Aaarrgghh, I've downloaded the first episode of season 3 from iTunes but I have to wait until tonight when I get home to watch it!!! Actually no, it'll have to be tomorrow night because I have badminton tonight!

    I'm hoping my wife wants to watch them week by week, or it'll be a long 10 weeks until we watch them all at once.

    Right, I will be watching it then (I wasn't sure whether to begin as I have a lot of work and am still tired from walking in Spain).

    My wife and I have decided not to watch any of season 3 until it's all released, and then watch it all together in a couple of mini-marathons. So I've got to studiously avoid any spoilers for the next 10 weeks. Aarrgghh it's going to kill me!!!

    lol I should have known there would be a chorus of 'boobies boobies' :D

    It's a tad embarrassing if the family are around though, or maybe thats just a 'British' trait

    Definitely a british trait (that I have too), but even then it depends on your upbringing (do you watch the BBC? Did your parents allow you to watch ITV? heh). I was really embarrassed watching the three Millenium films with my parents, and the Game of Thrones Series 1 with my dad.
