watched it last night, as a complete newcomer to it all (it seems most of you have read the books, ive never even heard of them) i was quite impressed, alot going on but im sure its going to all make sense, some one mentioned not being afraid to harm big characters, and that was part of my love for the wire, no one was safe and anything could happen, obviously completly different genres but hoping the same principals apply!

Don't read the books, you'll be destined for disappointment. The fat blagger will die before he finishes the series.

If it follows the books at all, and it looks like it will, then you'll have no worries on that score. Major characters drop like flies.

I would say definitely read the books. They are fantastic reads, as is Joe Abercrombie although not quite as good. Whether you read them before watching the series is a personal preference. Personally I find it a lot harder to read the book of a film, then watch a film of a book.

As Daddy Long said, GRRM has taken an age to write the last two books but that is only because he scrapped what he was doing (He had written half of book 4 having advanced the plot 5 years before deciding he didn't want to do the jump in time). He now appears to have sorted out all of the problems that subsequently arose from this. Book 5 is out in July, with the last 2 to follow.

To follow, but who knows when.

I'll second the Joe Abercrombie recommendation, and add Steven Ericson into the mix too. Excellent stuff.

I reckon he will be done by 2017! Three years a book from here on in.

Probably moving off topic. Everyone loves Steven Erikson but I wasn't overly impressed. I have only read Gardens of the Moon though and hear you should read at least the next two.

Yeah, stick with it. The first one is good, but it gets a lot better.

Haven't read the books but sat back and enjoyed it today after recording on Sky+.

Very impressed indeed. Fantastic scenery and good acting. Can see the whole thing is going to unravel very well making it a fantastic story/idea.

Very good second episode. They really are following the book very closely, even down to the pacing. Haven't had too much to do with Sandor Clegagne yet, but he's an excellent character. Joffrey is as much of a little turd as in the book, which is great, and the direwolf 'puppies' are great.

Thanks to this thread I started watching this to see what it was all about and am hooked. May not bother with the books as I much prefer to read the books prior to any film/tv series etc...

The way its going, I dont think youll have to. Its been done very well so far, quite accurate. Apart from a bit of initial character development (eg Sandor Clegane), all youre really missing is the thoughts of the characters, otherwise the dialogue and events are spot on.

Things should pick up a lot in the next few episodes.

Just watched the third.
I am really enjoying the series.
The best bit is all the characters sound like they did when I read the books.
(only spotted 1 american in the cast - the bloke from the wire)

ps. also in the first episode the horse men's camp was on Gozo, just beside the inland sea/arch, I've stood in the middle of it.

Which bloke from the Wire? I assume you mean Aiden Gillen, who is actually Irish but does a good Baltimore accent.

I'm already looking forward to the series finale, its going to be epic. Should be a good, action packed, hectic couple of episodes.
