Default Game of Thrones - opinions?

Title says it all really.

Game of Thrones started on Monday (UK) on Sky Atlantic.

I watched and must say I have not read the books but was instantly drawn into it, finding it very compelling; cannot wait for next week!

My favourite bit was Tyrion as Mr Dinklage is a very good actor and especially the scene with Jon Snow was fantastic!

So, what do you guys think?

I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but I am supremely pumped after all the trailers. I'll probably be watching it over at a friends house pretty soon.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

HBO series is shaping up to be good, but If you like reading then the book series is a MUST. Honestly the best fantasy series of all time according to most of my friends and other fantasy fans I've talked to. The books are well written and even grittier than the show.

Aside from that, the show looks as good as a show of the book can be and I can't wait for the rest of the episodes! :D

Its a very good show, and here is some proof, its already been renewed for a second season.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/04/19/ga...rones-renewed/

A Game of Thrones, then next is A Clash of Kings. And since i've read the novels I can say, ACOK is when it gets bloody. Can't wait to see the Battle of the Blackwater. But that won't be for a good while yet. For now AGOT wise I want to see Gregor Clegane 'The Mountain that Rides', perhaps the vilest scum in Westeros and beyond. One other character I really want to see but sadly he doesn't appear until A Storm of Swords, so lets hope for a third season.

I realise i'm trying to keep this as spoiler free as possible but how important are the rather terrifying people that popped up in the 1st scene to the plot? They were a little bit freaky

I really like Sean Bean in all the stuff he's been in, always thought he came across as an alright guy in interviews and that.

Whats the inside scoop then Jez since you know the bloke.
