I'm 20% through DoD and I've been unimpressed so far. Everyone said it was amazing, and it's the hardest for me to get into. I even liked Feast for Crows better than DoD.
I'm about at a similar spot in the book, I thought it picked up a lot in the past few chapters.
Most people dislike Feast for Crows but I enjoy the Dorne setting so I liked it, but I can understand why someone people wouldn't like the location split he did.
Season 3 will pick up at the 1st episode. A lot of amazing, unpredictable stuff happens in ASoS.
In the middle of book 2(A Clash of Kings). Finished book one about 2 weeks ago, and rented the first TV series on DVD. All I have to say is DAENERYS. Must have been one lucky dragon. Books so far have been a really good read though.
Dany is way more badass in book 3, her story will pick up bigtime. She's always been a bit of an annoying character to me so having her story so good in ASoS is one of the reasons I liked it so much. I actually enjoyed her chapters.
I loved what was happening in king's landing.
Yeah imo the build-up is very interesting. He seems to write 2 build-up novels, then a climax novel (ASoS). FfC and DwD build-up should be resolved in WoW.
I have to admit..I do freaking love this show. See Trevor no profanity!
I've always liked sci fi a bit but this is more creative and fun than most. Can't wait until it comes back.
I've only watched through 3 episodes of season 1. I just remembered all the reasons I have Joffrey with a passion.
Guys, be careful with spoilers; even saying "Character X gets soo much more interesting in Book 3" is a semi-spoiler because it tells other people that that person is still alive at that point. One of the great thing about GoT is that everyone is potentially on the chopping block; don't ruin the surprises for everyone!
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Hey mod who is a big fan of the series, isn't there an already large and established spoiler free thread going? Perhaps you could use your sweet mod tools to bump it and then merge it?

Looks real good. I just finished season 1 and the first episode of season 2. Can't wait till Season 3.
Season 3 will be the best season of this series, of course considering I don't know the source material of books 6&7, but this season will make GOT the biggest pop culture phenomenon in the world in my opinion.
Well, maybe Season 4 too. Season 3 will end on a HUGE note, amping everyone up for season 4, which will be the most action-packed season. The second half of Storm of Swords was ridiculous.
I have just caught up. The ending of season 2 was chilling. Can't wait for season 3. Really glad I stayed with this show
Best show for me since sopranos, nothing else is close, can't wait for season three and I advise everyone to check out the first two seasons if you haven't already
so mattyfresh and so clean
just finished reading the first book in anticipation of watching season 1 (received on blu for xmas) - now i'm trying to decide if it's better to read first or watch first for season 2? I guess i side on reading first as even though I may know the fate of certain characters I also know things like little Joffrey is a fucking shithead for me to poop on and I can get to hating him from the second he lands on screen.
Read it. They took a few more creative liberties in season 2 than in season one. However, if you haven't read Game of Thrones, i'd start there. A lot of background info that helps. Clash of Kings is my 3rd favorite book in the series though, it's pretty active and there's a lot going on.
I do have one question: I haven't looked at IMDB but briefly for a couple of characters to just get a sense of what they look like, but I am assuming that the kids - Jon Snow, Robb Stark, Joffrey - who are 13-15 in the book are older in the show? It seems like it would be difficult to pull off a character like Snow and Robb in particular as 14 year olds. Sansa and Arya and Ren I can see as children, but the eldest lords have to be at least 18-20, no? as well as it works in the book, I just couldn't quite picture a 14 year old on screen going to war or taking the black.
As I said, I just finished the first book - as in about 15 minutes ago. I bought the nifty box set of the first four for $16 on amazon around xmas when the wife got me the collector's set of S1 on blu ray. It's been killing me not starting to watch it as I was reading. I tend to be a voracious reader though, to the extent that I often leave myself on half a night's sleep when I get into a good book - like right now it's 1:23 am on a Tuesday and I want to start book 2! I read Game of Thrones in 5 or 6 days. I have the same problem with shows like this that are so good. I almost had to take a leave of absence when I got the complete Wire series
I'm trying to remember specific instances but I'm pretty sure all the kids are 1-5 years (or so) older in the show.
the collector's set is cool btw, and was only $35 at the time (it's twice that now), i'm just trying to figure out what to do with this dragon's egg that came with it
