    Well, as I understand it, he used to write television scripts, no? Seems like he'll do a good job. Plus it's a TV series, not a PG13 movie.

    Incidentally, The Golden Compass was absolutely hilarious. I laughed for most of the movie.

    Oh yes I recall he did write a few scripts back in the day I think (it will be in his songs book if I can find it)

    Yeah, I got all excited for the same reason. And then I was mildly disappointed for a moment before I realized this is awesome as well.

    *wets pants in a fit of joy*

    Since when has hypocrisy stopped anything? I just hope they find a reason to put a dent in this. Goddamnit can you imagine if more fans started appearing I'd actually be overaring about asoiaf from randomers on the street and then suddenly turn around and shout "NO! JAIME'S A PERVERSE AND MAIMED FREAK! HE WILL DIE" and you know, then I might be jailed for disturbing the peace which would be uncool.

    poor met - don't worry -- I am sure we can get you out on a plea of insanity - I mean only insane people don't like ASOIAF! ;) *which is not to say that all ASOIAF fans are sane - its just a difference sort of insane - a more sane insane)

    I actually got into this kind of argument with a stranger on a bus a while ago. I was sitting there reading A Feast for Crows and the guy in the seat across the aisle asked me what I thought of Tyrion. I told him what I thought and he got all pissed off and was halfway yelling at me that I was an idiot and didn't know anything... And the funny part is that my opinion was that Tyrion is really a good guy at heart, just raised as and lived in a world that promoted evil scheming. The other guy was saying that he was just an evil monster and should be despised. Oh, the people you meet on the bus. Joy. :321:

    Sadly, as a huge Ice and Fire fan, I was almost hoping it never got this far. If it does actually get any screen time, Im not sure how to feel about it. I just may not watch it for my own selfish reasons.

    Though, if they're going to start FILMING next October, it's not going to be out for a long time.
