We must do our duty now. Great or small we must all do our duty..

I know this is out of order. but...........................

Anyone else just waiting for their next fix of Game of Thrones? lol

I'm dreading it. Bloody DH and his GoT obsession. You're all bastards. grin

LittleTurtle Tue 26-Mar-13 15:00:47

You should give it a chance it's quite good.

Believe me, I gave it a chance they killed Sean Bean those bastards.

skaen Tue 26-Mar-13 15:10:40

I'm trying to wean myself off after reading book 5 and knowing he's never going to finish it...

AudrinaAdare Tue 26-Mar-13 15:15:00

Thoroughly addicted and I am moving at the weekend and will miss the first episode angry

I can't see any way that George will ever wind up all his various plot threads in the next few years either. I'm been sending him fruit and vitamin pills to keep him healthy, but...

LittleTurtle Tue 26-Mar-13 15:15:10

At least you went all the way with reading a book. ................... and this come from a die hard fan...................lol

Can't wait! grin

More Jon Snow this series I hope!

LittleTurtle Tue 26-Mar-13 15:17:50

I know. fucking Sean Bean! .........................

AudrinaAdare Tue 26-Mar-13 15:20:48

Really looking forward to Thomas Brodie Sangster.

AudrinaAdare Tue 26-Mar-13 15:22:48

Sean Bean is a walking spoiler who dies in everything.

KobayashiMaru Tue 26-Mar-13 15:50:33

I am so excited about Game of Thrones! I can't wait to watch John Snow stomping around The Wall all covered in snow and mud doing that sulky look of his blush!

On a more geeky note, having read all the books it will be interesting to see how the story and characters pan out, especially who gets introduced to us next. Roll on Monday!

Procrastinating Tue 26-Mar-13 16:02:40

I haven't watched it since they killed Sean Bean. That was it for me.

TheFallenNinja Tue 26-Mar-13 16:08:20

Half man rocks. With his little axe smile

More illicit Utube for DD1
.
We don't have sky or whatever GofT is on and I refuse to buy 18 videos. DD1 (14) read the first one (helping herself out of the sixth form library as usual) and I know has watched lots of it.

I don't mind 15's, but 18 is pushing it for friends and DD2.

I suspect a lot of the rating is for nudity which I actually don't give a fuck about, but I don't really want to encourage total disregard of film classifications.

Binkybix Tue 26-Mar-13 16:21:11

When will he finis the next fecking book, that's what I want to know!!

My friend hasn't read the books, but is watching series and I have to try so hard not to let things slip. However, I love it when people are reading the books and catch up with some bits that I've been BURSTING to tel them about.

neriberi Tue 26-Mar-13 16:39:48

Apparently the last 2 books are still a work in progress! There were rumours that book 6 ( I think it's called winds of winter) was due out last year!!! But obviously that ain't so. Check the various GOT forums and the author website, you will extracts from the books floating around.

oh yes it starts on HBO here on 31st too - DH is v excited grin

Keeerrist i hope they do a half hour roundup first to remind us what happened in the last series....it's been an age!

Binkybix Tue 26-Mar-13 17:51:14

The plots seem to be diverging more and more..I'm worried the books are going to go the same way as Lost.

SofaKing Tue 26-Mar-13 17:55:20

Haven't seen series two yet, I'm trying to spin out the TV series because I read the books all at once and was horrified to learn it will be around 2014/15 before the next one!

I cannot wait.

I also want the TV series to move on though as my sister has not read the books and I'm really struggling to know what I can and can't discuss with her without spoiling the story!

RawShark Wed 27-Mar-13 06:24:00

skaen what do you mean he's not going to finish it . THere must be a proper ending with everything all explained and sorted. WHat if Martin DIES before he finishes it? Arrrragh

StickEmWithThePointyEnd Wed 27-Mar-13 06:31:33

I can't wait! Reading a Feast for crows at the moment.

Stannis for King!

StickEmWithThePointyEnd Wed 27-Mar-13 19:49:14

Clearly today was dark and full of threadkillers...

Bearfrills Wed 27-Mar-13 20:25:54

I love living where I live simply because I can say I'm North of The (Hadrian's) Wall grin

And they weren't bloody wrong when they said Winter was coming.

AudrinaAdare Wed 27-Mar-13 22:28:55

When you play a game of threads you win or you die.

DD dipped her feet in my bath earlier whilst chatting to me (bloody teenagers) and nearly scalded herself. Clearly, she is not the blood of the dragon and my real daughter is out there somewhere.

I have a soft spot for Stannis too...

Bearfrills Wed 27-Mar-13 22:34:53

We dressed 3yo DS as a 'Viking' for World Book Day. Secretly he was actually dressed as Timmet son of Timmet (something which only DH understood - tis why I married him).

I'm hoping the books are finished before George is finished.

AudrinaAdare Wed 27-Mar-13 23:12:25

grin at Timmet.

cookielove Wed 27-Mar-13 23:30:59

I think I am on book 5 dance with dragons ...? I am taking a break from it at the moment smile I heart jon snow.

Crap claim to fame. Eh hem I went to school with one of the actresses and her fb page is filled with got stuff.

neriberi Thu 28-Mar-13 13:05:51

Tyrion's role just gets better in the books! If I had friends in RL I would be having a GOTs party on Monday blush

cookielove Thu 28-Mar-13 16:08:09

OOOh i love Tyrion grin in book and in show. Dh likes him to his fav character in fact. I can not stand Catelyn Bluergh!!! Also have a soft spot for Jamie <swoon>

wibblyjelly Thu 28-Mar-13 16:12:25

Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) is at comic con this year, I'm hoping to meet him :-)

AudrinaAdare Thu 28-Mar-13 21:52:43

cookie a clue please?

neri a GoT party would be awesome. I'm as anti-social as they come but I'd venture out for that!

I was signing contracts for my bastard house move which will make me miss the first episode and had a nice geek-off with the receptionist who was also looking forward to it.

Then, exhausted, putting little DS to bed and explaining that it was night- time and dark etc as I usually do, out came, "for the night is dark and full of terrors" Not the most reassuring thing to hear as the light goes out hmm

cookielove Thu 28-Mar-13 22:00:48

Audrina a clue about what? confused

AudrinaAdare Thu 28-Mar-13 22:18:51

Sorry, I wasn't clear. Who the actress is, from your previous post. Was curious.

I wasn't asking why you hate Catelyn and have a <ahem> soft spot for Jaime. Lots of people do. It is known grin

Bearfrills Thu 28-Mar-13 22:24:47

Peter Dinklage. I so would.

<lowers the tone of the thread>

cookielove Thu 28-Mar-13 22:36:23

Oh yeah i can just tell you who it is .... she is Esme Bianco and she plays the whore Ros here

AudrinaAdare Thu 28-Mar-13 23:09:17

Oh I like Ros. Thank you smile

cookielove Thu 28-Mar-13 23:19:27

No problem grin

neriberi Tue 02-Apr-13 12:49:27

Did anyone watch GOT last night? Was it good? I missed it sad but I will be watching it later grin

wibblyjelly Tue 02-Apr-13 13:55:47

It was good, but not the best episode ever. Think it was more of a catch up of some of the characters. Hopefully it will pick up next week.

Mawgatron Tue 02-Apr-13 14:43:09

WHEEEEEE! Just downloaded it! Can't wait to watch it. Problem is, DH still needs to watch the last 5 episodes of season 2- do I catch up or wait for him?

neriberi Tue 02-Apr-13 15:01:37

tell your DH to read the books grin and watch it!
