That is good news.

Hopefully the series will hold up to A Clash of Kings; there's a lot of things that I can see being swept under the carpet. Dissapointing, but eh, I can survive.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

I'm also afraid it will be so. Still, looking forward to it, it has potential to be better than first, which, imo, was hit and miss (as adaptation).

Hopefully it starts snowing a wee bit during the day/afternoon, as the cold winds are rising!

It shall - The eighth episode, if I remember correctly. The screenplay and script is done by GRRM himself. Should be pretty good.

Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

Eight episode huh. Boy do they fly through the book quickly. Eh, I can't help but feel that without the pointless, Tolkien-esque details, the adaptation shan't live up to the original source material.

I may be wrong. Let's hope the (presumed) CGI for Blackwater Bay doesn't cheapen an otherwise epic clash.

I have high hopes for this series if it is anything like the first. I bought a Kindle and all the books that were out at that time after seeing the first episode and I have been hooked since.

Just bought the DVD box set but not had time to sit down and refresh myself on just how good an adaptation it was and how true to the book it ran.

The second series will again be 10 episodes. Episode 9, not 8 will be the Battle of the Blackwater, straight from GRRM's mouth here and directed by Neil Marshall of Dog Soldiers, Centurion and the Descent fame.

Spoiler


Can't wait...
