My BLU-RAY kit of season one arrives tomorrow... but I apologize for being obtuse.

Calexico, what's your story with this again?

Also, if you click the link and read what he posted above, many and more facts about Calexico will reveal themselves to you.

Edit: this one...

Seemed only fair that I post this here.

Character profile on Robb Stark


At 0:48 you see your first glimpse of Roose Bolton (first guy walking in front of Robb)......for some reason i always pictured him looking like Prof. Snape


And a new trailer "Price of our Sins"

I've been meaning to come on here and thank you guys for starting this thread, and thus leading me to reading these books. BUT, I am now a little over halfway through A Storm of Swords, and I will give you no thanks...in fact, George R.R. Martin is an ass. Granted I saw it coming, but still.

Really? When was the last time you read "Fellowship of the Ring"? I could literally skip pages at a time, knowing that he'd just be describing their cloaks getting hooked on branches.

I love Tolkien, but thank you for this, very much.

(I've commented here because I fell asleep watching TV a few weeks ago, and when I woke up, some woman was walking into flames and then, I guess the next day, but I'm not sure, because I might have fallen asleep again, a (the same?) woman was getting up out of the ashes, dirty, nekked, and with what looked like a little dragon growing out of her. And then these guys wearing skins bowed down to her. And then realized, 'Oh, this is Game of Thrones")

Am I the only one who did not like the 2nd episode? I like Arya and Gendry, and appreciated being introduced to Pyke, but the rest was weak and deviated from the books in ways I did not enjoy.

I'm with you on this too. I understand having to adapt for television purposes, but some things were just unnecessary. I do find it funny to see people who have not read the book telling off the book-readers for complaining on internet threads.
