One reviewer was like "he slapped him a few more times than in the book, but it wasn't enough because Joff was still breathing."

I've never read this series, but my husband is a huge fan, so I have my own expert at home to answer questions as they come up. I am just creeped out by the Lanisters. Ewwww.... I can't even stand to look at the actor playing their son. The actress playing Dany irritates me, and it doesn't help that her hair looks like it was ripped off of a life sized Barbie doll. The story is great, though. It even made me buy the book, which is totally not my genre.

It is a very non-genre genre book. The fantastical elements are set on low and gradually increase over time. The politics and espionage and drama are all on high throughout. They're pretty awesome, and the 5th book is FINALLY coming out this summer!

I literally jumped up and down when I read about that on GRRM's blog. IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME. I'm excited to read about Dany and Tyrion... but without giving anything away, I won't say more.

That's what my husband said. I don't usually like to read what he likes to read and vice versa. We share a Kindle account on our iPhones and read about 20% of the same books. I do like to jump on a series right before the last book comes out, though! I hate to wait.

The series isn't close to ending. The author has at least two more books planned in the series, although books 6 and 7 won't be out any time soon, I'm guessing.

Love the show & Jon Snow. He's just adorable. Also really like the youngest Stark daughter. She makes me smile. Can't stand any of the Lannisters. Creepy beyond belief.

I have only watched the show but ordered the books through Amazon so I'm waiting for them to arrive. Any day now...

Oh well, he's verbose enough that even though I read fast, I may be able to drag them out until then!

They say in the books that when a Targaryen is born the gods flip a coin and one side is a great leader but the other is bugfark nuts. I'm paraphrasing...
It's all good!

Yes!! This is the first time I get to watch it live. I'm at my parents and they have HBO. Enjoy those books!! You won't be able to put them down.

This last episode was filled with a lot of wtf. Needed more Khal Drogo, imo
