I don't think I can watch anything with Bean in it again...

He said its very violent though so perhaps it's worth a watch.

If it's like the books it will be wank. So hopefully it's nothing like the books as it won't work as a TV show as it's written.

See that guy you like? Dead, that other guy? Also dead, the other only likeable character, dead as well. Any consequences? No. Wait what's this something happening on a different continent not related to any other story or any of the other characters. Wank.

Yeah the book are good but you really can't allow yourself to get attached to any, and I do mean ANY, character as Martin has absolutely no problem killing people off. Gets right annoying sometimes to be honest. I will give the show a try though.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

The books are awful as well. I find it hard to even qualify them as novels. The first book impaticular is just 700 page introduction to a franchise. There's no real story in it, essentially no character development outside of 1 character. A total disassociated storyline. When I want to read a book I want a book with a story, that goes somewhere and comes to an end. I do not want to read a 700 page advert for your own dragonwank based franchise.
