    Re: Game of Thrones on HBO

    I'm going to try again, today, but I've not been able to sign up yet and I, too, am with DISH. I've just caught up with the most recently shown episode of GOT this morning, so I can wait until this evening to see episode 7.

    And I remember when, on the show, that they said that "The Calisi" was only 13. I am so glad that her brother, The Dragon (or so he thought!), finally got his!!! I kept hoping that somebody would just lop his head off, but they couldn't shed blood where they were.

    I'm looking forward to tonight's episode so we can finally talk about it but I'm REALLY looking forward to next week's episode 8. It's the one that GRRM wrote...

    My husband and I were saying last night that it's surprising that there aren't more people that watch this show.It's got everything as far as I'm concerned.Great storylines,excellent acting,beautiful cinematography and not one dull minute.It's got action(those fighting scenes),sex(brothel scenes),romance(Drogo and Dany)and have I mentioned all the hot men??
    Plus it's got Sean frickin' Bean
    Really folks give it a shot,you won't be sorry.

    ....and for the season finale, too

    For me, this was the best episode of the season. SO much happened and it could have felt frenetic and cluttered, but instead, it was tight and perfectly paced. This is probably because GRR Martin wrote the episode.

    HODOR!

    ITA! Watching the Arya and Sirio and Arya and stable boy scenes, as well as the scenes with Bran & Osha play out exactly as I'd envisioned them were cool to see. I was disappointed Ghost wasn't given his part to play but happy Grey Wind got his moment. Drogo is certainly one big, ol' bad a$$. I wouldn't want to go head to head with him...literally - lol. Can't believe there's only 2 episodes left.

    Sidenote - I read GRRM is busy writing an episode for next season. I'm excited to see how that one plays out as well (though only if it doesn't take away his time from Book 6!)

    I've not read the books, and I came to the series because of Sean Bean. I've fallen for Arya, Jon, Dany and Tyrion. Such fantastic characters and well cast.

    The next couple of episodes will be hard. I can't believe we only have 2 more.

    Wow, that was intense. Although much of it was tough to watch, I thought they did a beautiful job with it. The execution scene was exactly as I pictured it.

    Am I imagining things about Tyrion's role in the battle? I don't remember him being knocked out and missing it all in the book. Also, that's not at all how I pictured Shae. She seems MUCH older than 18, but maybe they aged that character like they did with so many other female characters.

    OMGosh!! I have not read the books and I was NOT expecting Ned to get beheaded!!!!! I know I shouldn't be surprised because Geoffrey is such a little turd (to put it lightly), but I am still in complete shock!!!!!!!!

    That was a fantastic episode. I cannot believe the season is almost over.
