Yeah, definitely.

DVR and OnDemand has only helped in increasing the rapid momentum of the television's "golden era", as we're calling it.

And then websites like HULU and whatnot...television is just so accessible and profitable right now.

I mean, the two best examples of this are Family Guy and Chappelle's Show. Look what DVD's has done for them.

Obviously at least one dragon will survive, I think, or else they wouldn't have incorporated them the way they did, but I wouldn't be shocked if one or two (how many are there? four?) of the dragons gets killed or harmed in some way, which would suck. I want to see all four (or whatever amount) dragons grown. But I think it's going to be tough. I think there will be people trying to kill them/take them/harm them.
There's something too honorable about Jorah (her protector). I almost think he will somehow be involved in some shady business. I really like his character so I hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Re: Game of Thrones

spoiler

It was way too predictable that the dragon eggs would be resurrected as dragons. I saw that **** coming a mile away. I didn't think it would happen the way it did though. The sorceress was vindictive as ****. Sad to see Drogo go like that.

I thought they would be her son's dragons when he came to conquer Westeros (Seven Kingdoms). I didn't think they'd be hers.

With the Night Watch north of the wall, I'm curious what's going to happen with Arya and Robert's bastard son. Who is going to train them when they arrive at Castle Black/the Wall?

You got your facts wrong on the bolded part. Remember what Viserys said while bathing with his sister's slave. Brave men didn't kill dragons, they rode them. I can say more on the fact, but it's backstory from before the TV show's timeline from the book (I'm behind the tv show in the book, but the show hasn't elected to say the info I'm talking about yet, so I won't mention it either, even though I doubt it will ever come up on the show).

And who is Ben Snow? Jon? He's taken the black (the oath that says can't marry and should be celibate). Contextually, it sounds like you're talking about Robb Stark, though. And yeah, he seems too honorable to go back on his word about marrying one of Lord Fray's daughters.


By the way, it's 3 dragons that she has with her. There's a reason for that number. It may or may have not been said on the show, but I'll play it safe and assume it wasn't.

Re: Game of Thrones

Re: Game of Thrones

For those that have read the book, how far into the book did this 1st season get?

Re: Game of Thrones

As I said before, I'm further in the tv show than I am with the novels, but I know for certainty that each season is 1 book's worth of material. There's 4 books out right now, and the 5th is coming out in a few weeks. There'll be 7 in total, so 7 seasons of the show. The thing is George R.R. Martin has slowed down a lot recently (took him almost 6 years to release his last book), so we'll see what happens if the show catches up to the novel by season 7. My guess is it will go on hiatus until he finishes.

Was wondering how they'd break things down each season. Makes much more sense now.

Totally not trying to be a dick, but can you just refrain from even hinting at book spoilers? Don't even bring up the book.

They movie sucked worse than Eragon. It was as bad as In the Name of the King.

In the Name of the King is the worst movie I have ever seen. I made it about an hour in and then watched the rest in fast forward.
