Game of Thrones 101

Hi remember me? Something has stirred me from hibernation. I'll be taking things very slowly, starting with this youtube clip.
In 2011 the rest of the world will wake up to A Song of Ice and Fire. The first book, A Game of Thrones is getting made into an HBO tv series and here's the inside look.

Ragtag, ol' buddy ol' pal! :)
I need to look into this "Game of Thrones" thing since I seem to be one of the only ones who didn't know about it before you mentioned it a while ago. Do you recommend the books? I don't know if I'll see the HBO series since I don't have it and they're usually a bit raunchy for my taste.

Welcome back!

Sounds good!
I have missed you!

Hey you guys!
@iz4blu how could i forget you? You're the only Sean Bean chaser I know. Lucky there was HEAPS of him in the preview.
@Nat congrats on the bub! I love the smell of newborn in the morning.
I don't recommend these books for you Nat. Dark, twisted, it's the stuff obsessions are made of. Sound like you? Nahhhh, plus you're too busy. They'll tone it down for tv for sure. Maybe watch the first episode and see?
Though I'd recommend them for Avalon, Peter Dinklage is gonna kill it, nail it, burn it... and Will Scarlett is in it too, platinum blond wigged!

Hey there, here is the same content + an extra minute on YouTube. This will play on Mobile Devices unlike typical HBO YT channel content.

Apparently I've been out of the Peter Dinklage loop. So just checked him on IMDB. What am I missing?

Yep for Sean Bean chaser: so I get his Lorna Doone on DVD from German Amazon when FINALLY UK Amazon releases it!! Cheaper too no less. All to see him in lace & boots and long hair!

Sorry should have cleaned that up.

phylly3! Yes ye gads it's riding high on fanbase expectations. I hope it doesn't end up too bombastic. Only daytime soaps get away with so many meaningful looks and loaded pauses.

@is4blue OMG Lorna Doone: The Mighty Bean falls victim to a Mullet! I'm still tracking down the 16 Sharpe episodes, Lorna Doone comes after that.
As for the Dinklage, is4, you can get an idea from the indie movie 'The Station Agent' - plus I love trains.
