    It's gonna get crazy. **** is already swirling. Rob has become more confident, and his storyline should be very good.

    Re: Game of Thrones

    Reading the books right now but I'm getting the season 1 DVD's from netflix tomorrow, can anyone who reads the books tell me where season 1 ended?

    Pretty much right at the end of the first book. Season 1 followed the book very closely.

    Save for the addition perspectives and conversations, which were a nice bonus. Really well done.

    Re: Game of Thrones

    Episode 1 was a little slow, but they're just setting things up. I'm looking forward to Tyrion shaking things up in Kings Landing. Also, how good of an actor is the kid that plays Joffrey? He does a great job being a spoiled, cruel little ******.

    I was talking to my wife about this very thing the other day. He is really good. In fact, there is no one in the show that I really don't like as an actor. The kid actors are very impressive.

    Great show. Read all the books. Can't wait for the next book. Can't say anymore as I'm a spoiler waiting to happen.

    Re: Game of Thrones

    Ya, the acting is top notch. Last night was pretty much the typical episode 1, set up for the entire season.

    You can see that there will be many different angles to watch this season. There are so many different factions wanting to get in on the action that the entire season should be intense.

    Casting is great, except one bomb....Natalie Dormer as M. Tyrell. Can't see her as anything but the conniving Ann Boleyn from Tudors....Otherwise, I like the variety of no-name actors sans Peter Dinklage.
