Agreed, it was done to show the male domination of the society, but it may have been overkill. Meanwhile, those girls are stunning.

Lol. Some time during the show last night, my wife turned to me and said, "Is that the only position they used back then?"

But yes, this show looks very promising indeed. We haven't watched last night's third episode of 'The Borgias' yet, but I can already tell that I'll enjoy Game of Thrones more. Though I guess I already expected that going in...HBO always seems to deliver for me more than Showtime. Don't get me wrong, Dexter and Californication are two of my favorites shows on TV, but HBO seems to deliver a more epic feel, and higher production value when it comes to these kinds of shows - not to say Showtime didn't deliver with 'The Tudors' though, which was stellar.

Are you saying you don't find the girls attractive, or are you saying you don't know what we are talking about? This is a NSFW shot of one of the primary stars. We'll see how the plot goes, but it seems interesting.
This show is perfectly done. Fans of the book, except hardcore perfectionists, can only be thrilled. Outsiders should find no trouble quickly getting sucked into this fantasy world. And for those of us who think Peter Dinklage is great, a showcase vehicle for his talents.

I didn't read the books but, as I said, it looks really good. Almost a cross between The Sopranos and Lord of the Rings. I agree about Dinklage.

I think I prefer you when you are complaining or criticizing something. This is too out of character for you and outside of my comfort zone.

Anybody who doesn't like this show is an asshole. Better?

Funny to mention The Sopranos. Did you note that the first show was directed by The Sopranos goto guy Timothy Van Patten? He of the mega-hotness The Wire.

The missionaries hadn't come along yet to spoil things...
Last night was abit slow and seemed to drag. Maybe they are sitting us up for something, but the entire deal with the kid sword fight, other tha the treachory of the group, just didn't seem to fit!

Saw a short interview with the guy that plays the nomad leader with the hot white hair babe. There is a reason he has a non speaking role to date! Roll Eyes

The sword fight will have meaning for the Prince's relationship with Sansa. I say no more.

I always try to approach the medium on its own terms. I don't care about the book. Just look at this show (or movie or work of art or whatever.) Is it compelling, well produced well acted? With GoT the answer is a resounding YES.

The only way to truly translate a book to the screen is put all the text on the screen and perhaps have a narrator read all the words.

I've said before, and I'll say again, to say that a movie is not as good as the book is a meaningless statement.
