    Watched the four episodes of Game of Thrones and i like a lot Lord Jon Snow he is a bastard but a talented man! I also like Ned Stark (when i hear the word Stark reminds me Ironman) Sean Bean is awesome actor for the role of Ned. Dire-wolves gives a plus in the story. And my favorite quote so far was the one with dragons birth when there were two moons and one disappeared so dragon created and eat the fire of the sun.

    I think Mark Addy is my favorite casting decision. I've been a huge fan of his for a long time.

    Loving Game Of Thrones so far. If they stay as faithful to the books as they have so far, it'll be a great show for seasons to come.

    I think that fifth episode was the best so far. I loved the focus on King's Landing and the Eyrie. Tyrion, Varys, Littlefinger, Robert, Ned, Bran's little scene at the beginning... all awesome!

    SPOILER WARNING FOR FIFTH EPISODE

    I thought that having Loras put the idea in Renly's head that he should be king was a really interesting change from the books. Not sure about Renly's change of character though - I like him in the books but he came across as a bit whiny and pathetic here. And the shaving was weird.

    Our household has only watched the first episode so far, and debated the pro's and con's of it for the three days since!!
    Seems like a fairly faithful representation of the books, though the dialogue is a bit stilted, though I found that in the books as well.
    The biggest disappointment noted was how old Catelyn appears to be in the series...just a bit too much, and the Lannisters are not blond enough!! :p
    Cant wait to watch the rest though!!

    In fairness, that was rather a memorable scene... defenestration of a child does tend to make a scene stick in your head.

    We just finished episode 3 last night, and are a little disappointed to be honest!!
    The casting at times seems to be average, I can only hope the actors grow into their characters as the series progresses!!
    Dialogue is stilted and pretty crap at times, but I have always found that even in the books!! ::eek:
    To be honest it tends to look like a rehashed "Rome" at times, with a soapy feel to it, rather than the edgy darker series I expected.
    I will still watch it all the way through and perpetually bitch and moan here....:p
    I hope it improves a bit, and I do love the theme music, very Bear McCreary like!! :)
