    Oh I just love it. It really keeps getting better. Of course I love Khal Drogo. I loved the scene how he is rallying his men to get the throne. It actually reminded me how Gary Oldman portrayed Dracula at the beginning when he curses God, the fieriness in his speech and the kind of tone in the dialect. How he moved really is similar.

    I love this series, and we just got the books series a couple of days ago :D Going to wait until the series is up before I read the first book.

    Nah, Robb is okay, I love John more and more, probably he is my favorite (still alive) character ^^ (besides Arya, she's cool as well)
    I 'love' the way Cersei manipulates Sansa, she's the devil in person. I'd backstabbed that woman if I'd ever met her.

    And the scene when Sir Baristan left was great as well. Great cut.

    I'm just curious when the next series is going to be aired, and also, if they are planning to make a series for every book. I would like to think so (and that the quality will remain as strong as it is or get even better)

    will season 2 be called "a clash of kings" or will it remain "a game of thrones"?

    I don't think they'll change the title completely; it would be too confusing for non-readers. Maybe they'll put it as a subtitle though, as in "Game of Thrones: A Clash of Kings".

    Hopefully the next series will air this time next year. It's already been greenlit so it'll probably be ready in time. I don't know how they're going to fit the later books into one series though; they could probably just about manage it with ACOK but A Storm of Swords would be very difficult to fit into a 10 or even 12-episode series. Maybe 16 episodes?

    The books get better (most polls I've seen put ASOS as the best book by a substantial margin) so hopefully the TV show will too. There are some truly epic scenes in the next books that I can't wait to see on screen.

    .
    ETA: GRRM himself has suggested spreading the third book over two series and the fourth and fifth (which cover the same time period) over three. But I've no idea if that will actually happen.

    I would love to think this is the start of a good 5+ years of series devoted to the books, but yeah I'm not going to hope too much.

    Ep 9 was brilliant :D Poor Ned and Drogo :( I kinda hoped they would of shown Tyrion in the battle too but looked like they wanted us to get to know Shae instead.

    I love Tyrion lol Great character, and imo Peter Dinklage NEEDS to win awards for his performance.

    I believe Jason Momoa has been submitted for the emmy awards, though I don't think he'll be elected considering the competition.

    I think Dinklage, Bean and Mark Addy (at least, and maybe a couple of others) were all better than Momoa so I can't see why he'd get the Emmy. Not that he was bad or anything, but it's not the standout performance of the series.

    Yeah I have to agree, I do REALLY like Jason, but as actors, there were better. If there hadn't been such great actors in the show then he would have had a better chance lol
