    Default Winter Is Coming...The Game of Thrones Thread *spoilers*

    This is the official thread for HBO's epic new series "Game of Thrones" based on the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Martin.

    The show premiers this Sunday, April 17th at 9 PM/EST.

    Much discussion about the series has taken place on this site in the "A Song of Ice and Fire" thread in the Mansion sub-forum located in the Keystone Rose. However, with the premier of the show quickly approaching, we wanted to start a separate thread so we don't spoil those who have not read the books, but are fans of the show.

    Now...Winter is Coming in just 2 more days and I can't be more excited! Let the discussion begin!

    I know HBO is going to be a lot more stringent on allowing downloads than a lot of other broadcast companies, but does anyone here know any good links for tv downloads? I haven't found a source yet, but I am dying to watch it as soon as possible

    I've watched football games from wqork on justin.tv It's a site where people broadcast streams directly from their tv. At least it used to be, haven't used it in a while.

    If I tell you guys I have an overwhelming urge to make some kind of lemon cake for tomorrow night, you'd understand, right?

    Also, two old timers (Marty and Sen) won some kind of contest and got to see the first two episodes yesterday and participate in a Q&A session with Sean Bean. I admit I haven't read or listened yet but here is the link to the podcast. http://boxroomboy.com/boxroom-of-thrones

    Indeed it was. I hope they show Jon and Rob being close in future episodes, as they were supposed to be. Of course, Rob didn't say a work during the whole episode, so maybe they just seemed distant because of that.

    I was hoping to see the faces of the Old Gods on the trees when Ned and Catelyn were talking about Jon Arryn.

    Those are both VERY minor issues, though. I loved every minute of it.

    Daenerys is so, so, so, so HOT.

    Amazing the little things that distract you, isn't it? I loved it but all I could keep thinking was "there's only one sexual position?"

    I need help, clearly. Please, let your intellectual dissection of the show continue.

    That being said, I loved the opening credits and the ending. That was the perfect point to stop. Arya and Bran are spot on. I'm still not keen on Cersei and Dinklage is growing on me.

    I guess Lena Headey didn't want the described sex scene in the book, therefore her position. Khal Drogo was tender to Daeny in the book, didn't seem so much in the show. That bothered me a little. The hooker Tyrion was with in the beginning was hot, I guess they have good quality hookers in Winterfell.

    I thought the same thing about Dany and Khal Drogo.

    Ditto about Dany and Drogo. I thought it was going in the right direction when he wiped away her tears, but that was where the tenderness ended, haha. I hope they show the sort of growing affection that happens between them in the books, I really loved that.

    Also, I don't know if I've ever thought a child was more adorable than the actor who plays Bran. I want to squeeze him.

    My only other gripe was I wished they showed a scene with all the Stark kids and their direwolves. I'm sure we'll see more of that in coming episodes (and obviously there's only so much they can fit into the first hour), but I was hoping to see Sansa, Arya, and Rickon meeting theirs.

    I freaking loved it as well. Like Bethany mentioned...the ending was perfect. Things I loved:

    - The fact that Jamie didn't look at Bran when he pushed him out the window.
    - The first Viserys/Dany scene. I was totally surprised to see so much Dany nudity, but it really worked in establishing how creepy Viserys is. Plus, she's hot. Also, I love the little nod to what is probably going to be the last scene in the first season with Dany walking into the bath and being told it's too hot.
    - Loved everything about Arya in it. "Where's the Imp?"
    - OMG direwolf puppies. So cute! Can't wait to see them rip out some throats. Haha.
    - Mark Addy is awesome as King Robert. I loved the scene in the crypts, it was really moving.

    Things I didn't like so much:

    - The Dany/Drogo sex scene. I, too, wanted to see the tenderness there, but from what I've read online, originally that scene was longer and it was cut short because they didn't want the episode being "too much like a porno". So hopefully we will see more of the Khal's sweet side in the next episode. But that's my only gripe and it's minor.

    Overall I loved it and can't wait until next week! As for why they changed the Jamie/Cersei sex scene to doggie-style (the only sexual position in Westeros as Bethany put it.... ) I think it is because Lena Headey was 5 or 6 months pregnant when she filmed the first season and it may have been too obvious having her on her back or sitting up during a sex scene. In the rest of the episode, she's got bulky robes on or is sitting at a table, things where she can hide a pregnancy.

    I didn't know she was preggers, that would probably explain it.

    I think Mark Addy and Sean Bean did a really good job playing the dynamic between Robert and Ned. I loved when Robert told Ned that he has gotten fat and Ned just raises his eyebrow at Robert. I also think Sean Bean does a really good job of playing Ned unsure of how to react to his best friend after so many years of him now being king.

    If you have any, it would be much appreciated! I searched for a few hours last night to no avail. Anything I found was either the wrong file or cost money.

    I really enjoyed the first episode of Game of Thrones. I've never read the books, but a show like this is right up my alley. I will be interested to see if the show can continue to sustain such a high level of production values as well as the ability to weave so many different stories together.

    I haven't read the books either, but found the episode highly enjoyable. I'll try to start the books in the summer.
