Game Of Thrones

Recommended Posts

So I actually just started the series today. And wow... it's good and I can see the similarities between the show and Crowfall

I'm going to be one of those people: if you mean that you started the show, then do yourself a favor and grab the books first. The show is good and represents the world well, but reading the books is an entirely different experience.

 

Unless you don't want to; then enjoy the show :D

Its good show, the books are alot better by far but when i first found the series i watched the entire first season then went and bought the books... the books are better and now the series is getting so off base from the books.. im not enjoying it as much anymore.. So reading the books then watching the series might be a downfall for you it has been me.

Can't wait for the Season 5 premiere in two weeks!  And HBO is launching their standalone subscription system for people who don't want to get cable just to get the channel.

 

They finally admitted today that the show will spoil the ending of the books.  Which was obvious since the get go.  George R.R. Martin has written 2.5 books in the last 15 years.  Heh.

 

Dark Wings, Dark Words!

I love the show.  I have the books but at this point I don't want to read beyond the show.  Usually I'm the opposite about book adaptations... and yes, it's a great show, not the best ever and there might even be something on TV right now that's better than GoT, but if it is I'm not watching it and don't care.  I bingewatched Breaking Bad after the fact and don't regret it, even though it's the best damn TV show I ever saw, lol.

I read it back in 2002 when It wasnt meainstream and it was awesome, i remeber bugging people in irc about it and nobody listened, lol. It was so different from anything else. But the third book was the last one back then.

 

First 2 seasons of the show were very good, then i started liking it less and less for some reason.

It's softcore porn with a budget and actual actors.

 

That said, it is still an intriguing series to watch. :)

Softcore? Reminds me of Rhonda sheer and her up all night years ago. I would either watch the series then read the books or just read the books.... i think the show ruins it because they start killing off major roles,and adding small ones trying to make it a bit one.. not as good as the books themselves.

I've read all of the books at least twice and watched the series at least twice. I started GoT in the middle of season 2, so playing catch up was a lot of fun binge-watching :)

 

I'm currently re-reading Dance with Dragons again, in preparation for the next season.

 

Having a watch party for episode 1. 

 

Team Arya for the win!
