Gave up at the end of season... 3, I think. It's gotten like the books, going round and round, except with more 'shock' moments shoehorned in. Every so often someone dies.

Oh, that GoT.  Thought I'd missed some news from Antenocitis workshop there for a minute.

I'm still enjoying it. More so than the books, which I gave up on due to overdosing on misery. I'll be watching tomorrow (get a Now TV box James, they've also got all the Star Wars films, Clone Wars and Rebels).

I am definitely looking forward to it.  I'm sitting here now with a "Night's Watch" tee shirt on.

I'm looking forward to it. When I can buy it on Amazon video in 10 weeks time, as soon as it's finished on Sky. Now I just need to avoid all the spoiler excitement for the next 10 weeks! Since the TV adaptation has now largely overtaken the books (although not in all storylines) we are in largely uncharted territory...
Since the books are, IMHO, infinitely better than the TV adaptation, with its sensationalist skimming over the surface of the story, cutting of many corners, and wilful plot alterations, I am not entirely happy that the story is, really, no longer Martin's own carefully (and Oh so long and painstakingly) wrought creation. But there you go. We live in an age of intsant gratification...

I will certainly be watching it as soon as Amazon get hold of it. I would rather disembowel myself with a plastic teaspoon that pay any money to Sky though. So I can wait 10 weeks  :)

I have just started on Star Wars; Rebels too.
If you have not seen that with the boy, give it a go.
He will love it.
(As I must confess I am enjoying it too.... ;)).



We're about half way through Rebels season 1 but have focused on Clone Wars for continuity.

Yep, I watch the DVDs only (and I could watch it on TV tonight if I wanted to).  We prep by watching all the previous seasons and picking up little things we missed or forgot, then watch the new season (usually an episode a night)...then we wait till next year.

Like some others, I enjoy the series...didn't like the books.  I read the first two books, then stopped shortly into the 3rd for two reasons.  Primarily because I got sick of only bad stuff happening to everyone (which is much more bearable on TV since things that last for chapters in the books are over in a few minutes on TV).  The second reason is because Martin writes Penthouse Letters porn like a 12 year old (you can almost hear him giggling, drooling, and touching himself when you read those scenes).  I don't mind sex in a story, but it should be as well written as the rest of the book. (MHO)

Rebels is Awesome with a capital A.  So I purchased the boxed set with all the seasons of the Clone Wars...couldn't make it through season one they were so boring.  My sister says they pick up around season 4, but I haven't been able to make it that far.

As with season five, I shall wait a year until its released. By then, I shall know all the spoilers. What's not to like about GOT!

I gave up part way through season 2. Haven't missed it.
