Re: Game of Thrones

Only thing that LOTR has in common besides the obvious is that they have swords and shit. other then that it's pretty different.

anyway, if this follows the book well enough, it should be awesome.

Re: Game of Thrones

The swordplay is gritty and realistic though. There isn't one man fending off/killing countless orcs. Unless it's someone like The Hound, all numbers games end badly for the outnumbered.

Also...no elves. Thank god.

Re: Game of Thrones

I'm going to go find some of the books this week at some point when I have time (shouldn't be hard). Would like to have read the first one by the time the show starts.

Re: Game of Thrones

The first book does start off a bit slow. The payoff is there though once shit starts to hit the fan. The books get better and better until book 4, but that's only because...well I can't say anymore.

Re: Game of Thrones

You and TKOK have hyped it up so i'm sure they are good but i'm one to finish a book even if I think it sucks.

Re: Game of Thrones

Well there is something big that does happen pretty early in the book. but shit really starts to go down once Ned arrives at Kings Landing.

Re: Game of Thrones

Well I think AGOT starts off fairly big, slows down for a little while, then shit starts to get real. Indeed the books do start to get better and better, but I think AGOT has more surprise twists while ACOK has a better story and ''WTF'' moments. Book 4's great for character development.

Re: Game of Thrones

Prolly should keep book discussion out of here, since there's a fucking massive thread for it. Emilia Clarke imo, looks like there may be some sort of lesbian scene from the preview, and I'm sure she'll be naked at some stage too since it's HBO.
