Coming back to Ian Whyte as Gregor Clegane, after seeing him in Prometheus I must say he's done quite good in ferocious fights, with nice dynamics and all :) Yup, it was HIM (Prometheus spoiler below)

Well my opinion about Game of Thrones. After seing whole season 1 I thought the series was 8/10 as in very good, but not a classic or so good that many others think. However the second season became finally so good as I wanted and I rate second season as 9/10 a classic.

TV series are like that to me. For example Smallville season 1 is rather average to me. However at season 3 and season 4 Smallville was at peak entertainment to me as classic 9/10 and roughly other seasons are 8/10 to me. One of my favorite Smallville seasons and the music tune was also in that episode:

I love Game of Thrones.

I prefer Season 1 better than Season 2, but they are both top notch.

Yeah well good for you that you think both seasons were top notch. I feel I need to explain myself and yes it is subjective taste which season is best.

I like Action and horror movies. The reason I like season 2 much more then season 1 are the following:
1. Season 2 has more fantasy.
2. Season 2 is more about warfare then season 1.
3. Season 2 has slightly more horror theme.
4. Season 1 has so much medieval human things that I sometimes wondered if the fantasy was simply some
rare thing and the TV serie would be 98% about medieval stuff only.

Warning spoilers do not read unless you have seen season 2!
Spoiler

Simply to be clear I am only commenting the serie and not the books since I have not read them. I let other people judge how close the series is to the books. Anyway to me that is less important as long as it is good.

the character progression is pretty good in the story! but i hope the actress is better, she doesn't show much of a change although as a viewer, i anticipate she would grow up and be wiser. instead she stay stupid , or was she feinting? I mean in the book was is written she is putting up a front? (never read the book, not much of a reader)

I have high hopes, they've done a pretty good job casting child actors, one would hope those actors are skilled enough to show growth.

There is a MMORPG with its lore in the making, sadly by Bigpoint - definitely looks like crap, always surprises me how people waste their franchise of something with huge potential, by being cheap skates when it comes to its video game production.

I actually like the actress who plays Sansa. Completely hated the character throughout all the books, didn't change much either - but in the series, I am starting to really enjoy her scenes.

I remember one scene in particular: The right before the Battle of the Blackwater Bay where Joeffrey made her kiss his blade to bestow the Maiden's virtue upon it. Her passive-aggressiveness is just a joy to watch - especially when she said something akin to "They say my brother always leads the Vanguard!" it's a perfect display of the only way she has at her disposal to really resist the king.

If I compare her with the girl we met at the beginning of the series, I definitely see her more jaded of her Knights and Princess Tales, harshly being shot from her naivity cloud and becoming increasingly more wily in her opposition ;) She's just at the mercy of a very volatile little prick king and vile husband - it's easier for Arya to pout and kick and scream and be deemed clever/brave, Sansa on the other hand - has to do these things more cunning to survive in King's Landing.

Definitely my least favourite Stark, but a Stark none the less.

Sorry, but Bran is the worst Stark. He's so, for lack of a better word, bratty and childish. Arya is only slightly older than him and gone through a lot more and handles it much better, he wallows in his self pitty way too much.

Maybe because he's....GOT NO EFFING LEGS he can use, for crying out loud! lol.

A bit different of a traumatic episode to go through than being called "Arya Horseface", don't you think? ;)

Read them (Up to the ~3/4s of ADWD - don't want to read on! :( such a long wait)

Spoiler

Don't get me wrong, I fancy Arya over Bran (as a person and as chapters to read) ANY day of the week - but comparing their plights might not go in favour of the alley cat.

I finally was able to watch Season 1 and it was AWESOME!! Having already read all the books: It did a good job of jogging my memory and entertaining me with the great cast and dialogue and character development - much better than movies, this series: Best Fantasy film I've ever seen. :)

Thank you to KQ who brought this to my attention via this thread. +1

You know that both of these scenes will first be seen on season 4? Season 3 is only the first half of A Storm of Swords and will probably end with
Spoiler
, because that is where the first part of that book ends.

Rickon is obviously the worst Stark.

One last, important thing:
If we're going to use Spoilers, then it would be nice if you could write which book the spoilers comes from before.

From what I know - the

will conclude season 3 this year.  So we'll definitely see it. Not sure about the

though. Can't put it chronologically right now.

And so will

it might sound odd - but despite all the HUGE stuff that's coming, I am most excited about Iwan Rheon playing Ramsay Snow - should be absolutely fantastic in that role.

Loved him in Misfits, being still the strange outcast even among that motley crew of never-do-wells ;)
