What do I need to know? I know nothing, is that best?

It completely passed me by when it was on TV but the guys at work rave about it.

ZebraZeebra Wed 09-Oct-13 15:01:19

You know nothing Jon Snow GlaikitFizzog!

It's awesome. The kind of awesome where I envy you about to start watching it for the first time.

GlaikitFizzog Wed 09-Oct-13 15:18:56

Not the newsreader?!

So far there has been, Dr digby from holby city and quite a lot of nakedness!

perplexedpirate Wed 09-Oct-13 15:21:10

Urgh! I'm so freakin' jealous!
Know this, you are about to fall in love.

ZebraZeebra Wed 09-Oct-13 15:26:58

Not the news reader, no. This beautiful specimen of a man.

GlaikitFizzog Wed 09-Oct-13 15:37:07

Oh yes, spotted him!

Now tell me, are they all at it with their sisters?

ZebraZeebra Wed 09-Oct-13 15:43:29

No, I don't think so....Just those two.

GlaikitFizzog Wed 09-Oct-13 16:58:34

Ooh, just watched the first two episodes.

First thoughts are:

Prefer Sean bean to Jon snow
That Joffrey is a brat
I love aria
Her sister not so much
Blondie girl is so going to whoop her brothers ass at some point

Am I addicted already?

Ladytron Wed 09-Oct-13 17:10:09

Yes, you've nailed it ^ !
Tis fab.

GlaikitFizzog Fri 11-Oct-13 21:32:50

shock just watched episode six! the golden crown shock

Hooked! I'm hooked!

ThreeBeeOneGee Fri 11-Oct-13 21:37:30

I wish I could unknow everything about GoT so I could watch it again afresh from the beginning. I'm quite envious.

ZebraZeebra Fri 11-Oct-13 21:44:44

Me too ThreeBee, me too!

ZebraZeebra Fri 11-Oct-13 21:45:31

Remind me of episode six Glaikitfizzog?

It's been so long sob

3xM Fri 11-Oct-13 21:51:23

ThreeBee If you haven't already, read the books. Gives almost the same effect as watching them for the first time. Helps you to understand more about the characters and their motivations and also the history and politics of Westeros.

GlaikitFizzog Fri 11-Oct-13 22:02:18

Shall we say, blonde brother (targaryen?) got his crown from Dalthraki dude.

I must say I'm getting confused with all their names, some of them are quite similar and a few of the men look the same too. rob and Jon are very similar.

ZebraZeebra Fri 11-Oct-13 22:08:30

Oh yes, yes I know now. Ta grin

I think Jon Snow really comes into his own in the next season, really. You'll soon know what is meant by "You know nothing, Jon Snow."

AryaofhouseSnark Fri 11-Oct-13 22:10:55

It's brilliant grin
I am a bit envy that you get to watch it all freshly from the begginging.

AryaofhouseSnark Fri 11-Oct-13 22:11:45

Ah x post with lots of pp

ZebraZeebra Fri 11-Oct-13 22:21:24

Brilliant username though ^

We're just watching season 2 - still behind the times, but a bit less than you!
DH hasn't read the books and is really enjoying the series. To be fair, we have to stop about every ten minutes so I can explain who everyone is and who they are related to and/or trying to kill and/or marry... hmm

(If I remember, I will video his reaction to That Episode in season 3 grin)

ThatVikRinA22 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:34:15

I also envy you....I am having withdrawals. thing in telly for ages.....I need the new season.....

Trills Fri 11-Oct-13 22:44:13

Luckily Rob and Jon will shortly be not in the same place at the same time, so you'll be able to know which is which like that.

Don't go reading online. It's much better if you don't know what's coming. When it was new to TV, it seemed as though everyone who had read the books was very good about not shouting all over the internet, so nobody would come across things unexpectedly.

Cooroo Fri 11-Oct-13 22:52:07

The books are great and add to the viewing. It would be lovely to binge watch it - we did that with Breaking Bad and it was extra absorbing but did make for some late nights!

Enjoy, there's some great stuff coming up.

AryaofhouseSnark Fri 11-Oct-13 23:04:04

Thanks Zebra. smile
Yes we binge watched it, got through series one and two really quickly.
We did the same with bb too. grin might have to start from the beginning with that.

GlaikitFizzog Sat 12-Oct-13 14:08:52

It's like a game of spot the British actor you would never have tight would be in something like this!! Jerome Flynn! Of robson and Jerome! smile
