something I noticed when watching the first episode repeat this past weekend that I was going to mention is that the comment is made by the blond guy to his sister that "the dragon will be awakened soon enough" before she actually got those dragon eggs...

without revealing too much to me or whatever, was that just a metaphor for the fierceness of Drogo's army and his desire to take back his lands, or was it literally a dragon he was talking about? It made me think about that from sunbunny's spoiler speculations earlier and then the dialogue about dragons from EP. 2...

He thinks he's a dragon because he's fuging insane from all the inbreeding the Targaryens have committed over the past 300 years.

Its really just a euphemism for his anger.

Hope that's not a spoiler.

My honest recommendation is to wait until after season one has finished to read the first book.

I have my minor disappointments about the series that you wouldn't pick up on without having read the books first. The books are absolutely not disappointing.

So you may end up ruining the tv series for yourself slightly by reading the books and jumping ahead.

3rd book clocks in at over 1200 pages in some editions I think.

1128 in the one I have. There's talk of splitting the 2nd and 3rd books into multiple seasons, or extending them several episodes.

Either is fine with me. Been waiting for the goddamned 5th book for 8 years now.

For you noobs, the 4th and 5th books were intended to be one book, but it would have clocked in at over 2000 pages. A publishing nightmare. So Martin opted to split them into two books, both books happening simultaneously, with 4th covering one set of characters, and the 5th covering the other set based on geographic location.

Should be interesting how they handle it if they make it to that point.

2.2 million watched the 2nd episode on HBO, with around 6 million watching overall, including repeats, steady numbers from last week. No upswing, but no downswing either.

I haven't read the books, but the hints given out can't be missed. There's a reason they keep showing those dragon eggs. Same thing with the direwolves. I know they're connected to the Stark kids, but Bran waking up when Lady is killed makes me think there's a lot more to it.

I want the boxed set of books, but I'm on a no buy right now until May.

Yeah this series has more red herrings than the entire coast of Norway. Don't bite on everything.

I'm just sayin'.

That's not too bad. Sucks I don't have a B&N, though. Maybe BAM will have it, but it'll be more.

You jackoffs should have read it when I suggested it in the Sci-fi and fantasy thread at least 100 years ago.
