I can't believe that there is not a topic on this series! I have just finished watching the first season and am beginning on the second. It is so good, I like the way it is realistic in terms of setting and attitude of people. So far I'd say my favourite characters are Daenyres Targaryen and Tywin Lannister.

i tried to watch it, but about midway through the first season i got really bored and had to force myself to finish it. i don't think i'll watch the second any time soon

maybe if i'd read the books i would find it a lot more interesting and easier to follow, but as it stands it was just okay

Ah really? I guess it's not for everyone, I looked up how many books there were and thought that I might attempt them one day

The books are each 1000 pages at least. My dad read them all. I'm watching the series with him and my brother. Really awkward to watch with my dad.

I watched the first episode and my dad walked in at the last scene. It was really awkward.
But I didn't really like it that much. My friend likes it, and she keeps pestering me to watch it (so she has someone to talk to about it other than that group who are all sherlock and doctor who and glee) but I haven't gotten around to it.

Yea, I thought that 2nd episode of Torchwood was bad. At least that was only one episode.

I've read the first four books and am halfway through the fifth -- the series is definitely difficult for non-readers to watch, as there are so many characters and different subplots that can get a bit dizzying at times -- but it's a really wonderful series that goes beyond its genre and tells realistic stories. I thought the second season was much more interesting than the first, although there were many changes with it that I didn't like at all, but it was well done as always.

Cersei would have to be my favourite, along with Sansa and Asha.

I kind of agree with WindWaker910. I had to force myself to finish the first season. I didn't much like it, and the last episode was just ridiculous to me. I saw season 2, which was better than the first. It's definitely not one of my favorite shows, but I'll continue watching it. Peter Dinklage does a great job in that show.

Hahah, I remember that awkward feel.

"I saw season 2, which was better than the first."


It's really strange, I've heard people say the exact opposite. But I can see what you mean. I liked both though.

Yeah, for me the second season was better. And by that I mean it was easier to watch. There was just something about the first season that bothered me, several things actually. The performances of some of the actors I just didn't like. Plus some of the content in there just seemed to be in there for the heck of it. I can't really put my finger on it. I may have had a bad outlook on it going in because of all the hype I heard about it. I'll probably try to re-watch it in a few years, I'm sure my opinion will change.

It could also be down to like a lack of action. Have you read the books?

It definitely wasn't a lack of action. I enjoy action, but I'm not an "action" type of person when it comes to tv or movies. I don't really need it to enjoy something.

I haven't read the books. I've been meaning to start something soon, are the books worth checking out? I know with something like that that many details would have to be left out in order to translate it to television, and I'm sure those details would really make me enjoy it.

I definitely don't like dismissing something just because I don't like it with the first viewing. I did that with The Office (both versions) and then fell in love with them. I also did that with Breaking Bad. So I know it's very likely Game of Thrones might be the same thing.

I actually haven't read the books either, but I've heard great things about them I'd like to read them. Yeah I get what you mean about not liking things first viewings.

@ angryvegetarian

The books are definitely worth checking out. They are quite lengthy and dry at times, but for what George R.R. Martin lacks in prose, he makes up for in his character and plot construction. The television show has translated much of it quite well, but there are obviously many, many details that were left out, plots that were shifted and changed, that were a shame to remove. Some of the characters who have a more introspective narrative -- such as Sansa, for example -- suffer from being portrayed onto television, but the script adapted to that rather well, though there was less of her than I'd liked. Other changes I was surprisingly pleased with, some I disliked, but the show has been more than I'd originally expected from it, so I don't complain much.

In general -- I recommend giving the books a try, at least.

Oh the books are fantastic! Ive read all the ones out so far. Yeah the books are huge an take forever to read but still they are really good just you have to pay attention to what your reading or else you will get lost pretty fast. Also the first book kinda starts slowish but by the time your on the last few books it's interesting the whole way through at least for me it was

Belive you can and your halfway there
