That's an awesome site. Thanks bankai :)
Richard, what's the verdict? I know its only one episode but it definitely does a good job of leaving you wanting more very episode. Verdict?

I agree about all the boobs. Really, you'd think a big budget production like this would do a retake rather than leave in so many mistakes.

Oh wait....you meant...ahhhhhh

Verdict is very good and I think I only spotted one person doing a fake English accent lol. I can see it becoming 2 or 3 episodes a night.

Was it geekish of me to keep thinking I wish they'd bring out a new We Rule based on King's Landing etc and the steam punkish medieval style of buildings!

The buffering was excellent from the site Bankai. It didn't pause once during the episode.
Currently playing...umm nothing much.
TWD No-Man’s Land but getting  very bored with it very quickly.

Would still be playing We Rule and Supernauts - if the devs could be bothered.

LOL, and here I was thinking the meaning of boobs was universal. :o

I personally enjoy the boobage and extensive sexytimes, but it makes having an all-day GoT marathon difficult due to kids not wanting to be locked out of the house for 12 hours. ;D

Now I'm having the same problem with Weeds. I feel like I'm never going to make it through the last season!

Well we did get a couple of GoT things last winter. Like the wall. The wall that didn't line up.  ::)  No, I think we can do without Ngmoco's excuse for art anymore.

That's true. The wall-that-didn't-line-up was very Throneish now you mention it. A kingdom building game with accurate GoT buildings would be awesome though

I like to watch the show on demand when I visit my mom, but we have to keep turning it off whenever the grandkids come in the room. So many boobs! :o

I watched the entire season 1 on a flight from Hong Kong to NY.  I kept on falling asleep and having to rewind.  The worst part was when the smutty scenes came on... The passengers sitting near me must have been wondering what kind of girl watches smut publicly.   :-[

I have about just a few pages left of the last book...so sad to finish the series.

I'm a slow reader, so it took me maybe 3-4 months to read through the books. Then there was just nothing... I was SO bummed to be done with them. And who knows when the next one will come out... GRRM writes a good story, but he takes a LONG time doing it!  ;D

I know!  I've had the last few pages left for quite a few months.  I keep on putting off reading them because I just don't want it to end :(

Parents of young'uns will especially appreciate this: http://www.somethingawful.com/d/news/thrones-games-babies.php (Be sure to hit the "Next page" link, too.)

Fair warning: Naughty words. But then...if you're reading A Song of Ice and Fire...<shrug>

C'mon, March 31!

Wow! Believe it or not, I was picturing the scenes in my mind ;D Very creative and I can't wait for GoT to start up again. Thanks Plehk ;)

Over the summer I was able to finish the book series. Counting down the days until Season 3! So excited.

I finally got my wife to watch the show and she loves it!  I'm watching them all over with her and we are up to episode 7 of Season 1.  ;)
