    Which one of us would have been in more trouble?

    I cranked up the volume, turned on the DVR, and watched it liked a man!

    He saw it a couple of days later and it wasn't bad. He pretty much said that it was a bit ridiculous. I'm too old to get in trouble for something like that but it is still a bit awkward with parents. So I guess you win that one.

    I watched it with my arm around my wife. I didn't say anything about not watching it!

    It was just easier to watch it while my wife slept than if she had been awake... I think. Hard to say. She'll always complain about those scenes but... I don't think she's ever really that upset. It's hard to say why I think that.

    On a totally unrelated note, if our dragon turns out to be a boy, should I name him "George" or "Martin?"

    I watched those scenes with my husband and just laughed at how over the top they were (I didn't hear him complaining...). It is what I expected of HBO, and considering the amount of detail there is in the books, it really doesn't depart from the tone that Martin wrote with.

    As for the dragon... go with R.R. for sure ;)

    I'm pushing for Samuel but I may be a bit biased ;)
     
  7. Neither. You name him Syrio.

    Too bad y'all didn't get on the boat early. George's wife ran a t-shirt company and made shirts for all the major houses during the first book or two. You can't get 'em now. I have a House Stark and a House Lannister... if I'd known about the TV show and how big it would get, I would've spent every penny I had on a truckload of shirts and would be selling them NOW for about 10x what I paid for them. :rolleyes:

    He was probably too immersed in the plot or too polite to talk during a movie to voice his outrage.

    ...

    My wife didn't buy that one either.

    Pronounced "Rrrrr!" - a good name for a dragon!

    Syrio Forel... boy's name or girl's?

    Season 2

    For the first time, I actually watched the show at 9:00 instead of having to wait for it to show up on On Demand! I forgot it was on, but my brother was over and he reminded me.

    My favorite part that I can talk about without a spoiler tag:
    Captain America armor!

    My wife missed the 9:00 show, so we watched the 11:00. After seeing it twice, there's a question that I just can't get out of my head... and I fear it will never be answered, but I'll ask anyway.
    Why does she wear a belt?

    BS! You know who I mean!

    I certainly enjoyed it.

    And since Syrio Forel came up earlier (man... I totally blanked out on the name back there!), I have a question. What ever becomes of that guy? Death implied but not confirmed?

    YES! I just bought Season One and watched it in 2 days about a week ago. Read only the first bit of the book, wasn't pulled in, but I'm very impressed with the HBO production, especially the Imp! The opening sequence, the sets, and pretty much all of the acting is phenomenally good, and much better than I expected.

    I believe I had read that George RR Martin confirmed he was dead, which sucks because Syrio could have become an even more amazing chracter.


    Also, agreed. Dinklage is amazing, not just his character, but his acting as well.

    Yes.

    And Peter's doing a great job- what a dream role for him- but I continue to maintain that he's way too good-looking to be Tyrion. :p

    Haven't been able to watch episode three yet, so I brought this over here instead of posting on the other thread. One problem that I see cropping up is that with so many characters in the new season, it has clearly gotten hard for the show to spend more than a couple minutes with each "group" for lack of a better word. The people making the show are doing a great job of handling it, but still.

    I believe this is why we are only seeing groups of characters per episode. The first episode had everyone because they needed to recap everyones position. But in the last two episodes we see storylines and characters dropping in and out. This worked well last season and helped the show develop better.
