Game of Thrones

Post by Roark »

I dunno if anyone here has read George R. R. Martin's excellent book series, but HBO have started a TV series, and it is awesome (in my onion).

The production is just amazing, and there's quite a few bewbs as well. It's got Sean Bean in it.

Someone please discuss with me this thing that I'm excited about.

Yeah, it's more about political intrigue and jockeying for power and stuff.

...and some bewbs.

I've always thought that the book series was like fantasy for grownups.

I'm terrified of Charles Dance.
I have nightmares about him walking up behind me at a urinal and whispering 'Delicious' in my ear.

Ben, you're obsessed with medieval stuff. Everytime I pass a castle now I think of you (which is daily) :oops:

Totally excellent show still, btw.

Hey Benjamin, without giving anything away (no wikipedia for me!) do the books span a long period of time? As silly as it is, I really want the young little daughter to become a total meanass killing machine.

The books written thus far do not span more than a handful of years, but I don't think you'll be disappointed in the slightest with what happens to Arya, dude, in terms of her transition from "helpless young girl who has to watch people she cares about being slaughtered" to... something else.

That's amazing. And none of them seem to be surrounded by protective anti-tourist/vandal structures. So they're just sitting there in all their purity?

Awesome.

Some have bars on windows so you don't crawl into them and get killed but otherwise you just stroll about them...they're part of the landscape here.

It still blows my mind that you guys have, like, dingy little local pubs that are older by centuries than any structure in my entire country.

We've got abbeys and churches that are 150 years old, and these are all hardcore protected by federal laws as though they're some kind of genuine historical artefact. Weak.

My favourite pub just happens to be the oldest building in Swansea.

The Cross Keys, which is just off the south western corner of castle square. The castle is actually on the north western edge of the square.

I justv started watching Game of Thrones. Sky Atlantic had a night of episodes so I've sky+ (tivo) the lot. Saw S1 Ep1 last night. Good stuff.

:lol: I used to play pool at a pub called The Bush. ironically it was then turned into a gay bar and they replaced the pool tables for food and pink barstools. The should have changed their name to The Butt & Bush.

Halfway through season 2 and completely hooked.

I'd just like to add that there is an above average number of eminently humpable males
