    Game of Thrones Season 3

    Less than 2 weeks to go. Anybody else excited? Should be a very good season.

    With the spoiler tags, the book readers and non-readers can even share a thread without giving anything away.

    There are several trailers out there now if you need a little GoT fix.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 3

    Book 3 is probably my favorite one in the series. In a series that can sometimes feel plodding, Storm of Swords did the most to advance the plot, in my opinion. There was a lot going on. Should make for some pretty awesome television.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 3

    Uh yeah, pumped! Book 3 is the best of all of them, this season will be great, and it looks to me like they upped the budget even more. This season will cover approximately half of Book 3 with the rest covered next season. Going to be bloody.

    There are several trailers out, I think the "No Mercy" one is the coolest.

    Is that the trailer that ends with the dragon breathing fire? If so, yeah, that's a good one.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 3

    When this show came out I thought, that looks like some nerdy show I won't like. I caught part of the end of a season one replay and then had to watch all of season one right before season two started. Looking forward to season 3.

    Just started watching, and am trying to catch up quickly. Great show but so far it is really hard to follow all the characters.

    I started watching 2 weeks ago and by the second season I had everyone's name down. Towards the middle of the second season I understood the interactions in the past between all the characters.

    it gets easier. To be fair, the television series actually has a lot fewer characters than the books. In the books you are introduced to tons of characters who have little importance other than to flesh out the world.

    This is very true, the books make it a little easier buy centering each chapter after a character. There will be a lot of important character reveals in this season such as the Reed's, Dondarrion and Mance Rayder.

    Get geeked for a sweet *** season man, this is gonna be a wild one.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 3

    Just wondering if many people that follow Game of Thrones also like Spartacus and Vikings on History.

    Re: Game of Thrones Season 3

    Can't wait. I have HBO for this one show. I have gotten through the first book and into the second. Love them also. In terms of the Vikings and Spartacus. I have enjoyed Vikings, but have gotten sick of Spartacus after the first season. The first season of that was by far the best.
