This thread is intended for people who HAVE read ALL the books, and will contain !!!MAJOR SPOILERS!!!. I'd suggest using spoiler tags for anything past Book 1, but still... you've been warned!

Characters, storylines, twists, plotpoints, everything is up for discussion.

Episode 1 ("Winter is Coming") airs this Sunday, April 17.

It is cool to see you so stoked dude. Same way I felt when The Wise Man's Fear was released. Where would this rate on the Tool coming to town scale?

Looking forward to the first episode. Let the Game begin :D

I'd still skip the premiere of this, to go see a Tool show (best band ever)...

However, I have seen Tool 8 times and I've never seen this show before. :)

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the premiere in two days. Gonna have a little premiere party (with roasted lamb and lemon cakes!). Too bad my Game of Thrones beer steins haven't arrived yet.

Oh, and from what I've heard, the first 3 episodes are the slowest (before things really start to take off). So, pretty much like all other HBO dramas.

I love Tool, but Coheed and Cambria is my favorite band. (All their songs form a giant, epic science fiction story. It's just natural that I'd fall in love with them!) I have a concert of theirs to go to on the 29th, and I deliberately scheduled it after the premiere so I didn't have to miss it. As you said, I've seen Coheed several times. This is the first and only series premiere of Game of Thrones and I've gotta be there for it.

I'm having a premiere party myself but no lemon cakes, alas. We're ordering pizza... :(

You guys are so lucky to have friends who are excited about the show. If I invited people over for a premiere party, which I think is awesome by the way, I would get verbally thrashed for weeks!

Somehow, I suddenly got 5 people to read the books in the last couple of months!

I started reading the books about eight years ago and for the first two years I was all alone. Then my brother read part one and didn't continue for about another three years. He finally read them all and absolutely loved them (just as I said he would!), but for about another year I couldn't convince anybody else to pick them up. Then, finally I got a friend to read them and after I recruited him, I've been able to talk about five or six other people into reading them.

To get back on topic...has anybody watched the five clips from the first episode that were released? Personally, it's so close now that I'd rather just wait.

I haven't watched the 5 clips, but I did watch the 14 minute preview.

Less than 2 days to go...!

Oh, yeah, I did watch that one. Several times, as a matter of fact. I actually had a mini get together for that also. I took off work and everything!
