    Just saw last episode (s4, e10). Quite impressed with the series and characters acting overall, esp Dinklage. "How would you like to die"?.... "In bed, at the age of 80, with a belly full of wine and a girls mouth around my c*ck", :D.

    Kind of disappointed at Joffreys relatively quick death. Was hoping to see him kidnapped and put through same type of ordeal as Theon Greyjoy.

    Its hard to adapt a book to a series but I think they manage pretty well, the whole cast are great.

    6 seasons in all so 2 more to go, can not wait.

    It's been renewed for season 5 and 6, but the producers want 7 or 8. My guess is there will be 8..

    Well there are only 5 books out now and the though is there will be 7 books total. The sixth book is past due for release so I would venture to say it will be out this year.

    Right, but they're starting to split the books up in the seasons. Season 4 was the second half of the third book, with bits of the 4th and 5th book thrown in. The 5th season should be the 4th and 5th book together (since they chronologically concurrent), but I would guess they can get a good number of seasons out of those two books.

    Also, anyone thinks that strangely enough the Forel could be Jaqen?Both from Braavos,both bound to defend/teach Arya?

    Possible I suppose, but why Arya?

    I am just reaching the end of the third book, which if things are sticking roughly to the TV shows season / book setting means I am a baw hair away from the Red Wedding, should be interesting to see how the book handles it.

    Oi, you casuals and your TVs. I don't understand of the appeal of GoT. I mean you can say its a "quality" show, but I wouldn't be interested in it if I hadn't read the books.

    Seriously, what is the appeal to GoT to people who haven't read asoiaf?

    I didn't read asoiaf and I love the TV show.

    It's fresh, different and in general very well made and the acting is fantastic.

    Oh for **** sake. Every post you put on this forum is a laborious read. Why don't you go open another thread where you ponder the meaning of life in connection to your homework.

    We watch the show because we enjoy it. There is no other reason.

    Yeah this.

    Well I saw the show and then opted to read the books on the back of that. Can I give some high exotensial meaning as to why I did this, no! I'd just back to backed Breaking Bad (ps I didn't read a chemistry book before watching that either) and decided to watch GOT, I enjoyed it

    Also it's got more than enough

    Life has no purpose other than to preserve itself. Sentience is relatively that exception, not the rule of the universe. Homework was created to satisfy the desires of a fickle academic hierarchy.

    I see. I'm not baiting hard enough. :program:

    or am I
