No, it starts this weekend in a number of countries. Yesterday was the US, tonight it's the UK's turn.

I'm so glad HBO repeats all week. It's hard to take it all in on just one viewing.

My favorite scene was Cersei and Littlefinger. It was interesting visually too, with the overhead viewpoint -- it was like a dance when her guards moved back and turned around. "Power is power." Heh. But it's telling that she needs guards. Second favorite scene was Cersei and Joffrey -- the slap and Cersei's fear. Third favorite was Sansa playing Joffrey like a fiddle and saving that guy's life.

Aiden Gillen's (Littlefinger) voice sounded different. Did anyone else think so? Maybe he had a cold.

I'm curious as to how Robert's bastard children were located. A poorly kept secret -- common knowledge?

Stannis -- he reminds me of the corporate CEO who dots the i's and crosses the t's but doesn't see the big picture.

Fair warning that the entirety of Game of Thrones Season 2 was leaked (http://www.tor.com/blogs/2012/04/entirety-of-game-of-thrones-season-2-leaked).

Wert has a great primer for season 2 (http://thewertzone.blogspot.ca/2012/04/game-of-thrones-season-2-primer.html), if you need a bit of a refresher.

I saw the first episode, but I think I'm going to try and catch it again on HBO tonight as I was a bit dozy the first time around. I thought it was well done, especially the bit with Cersei and Littlefinger.

Episode 1 Thoughts:

1. Tyrion wins.
2. Tony Way was miles better than I expected.
3. Daenerys' horse went down on its left side with its legs to the right. Subsequent scenes showed it on the right with its legs to the left.
4. Really like that wild(er) woman with Brann and Hodor. She's awesome.
5. Lady with lots of fire - Melissandre?
6. Stannis... um... is he Robert's brother? Oh, so he is.
7. Dunno who the Davos bloke is, either.
8. Oh, Honour rears its head in the Baratheon (Right?) house.
9. Old bloke going nuts, obviously up to something. Oh look...
10. "Yer grace" "Yer grace" "Yer grace"
11. Direwolves look okay. A little too CGI, but not bad.
12. Littlefinger = WIN. :D
13. Knowledge is Power. So, so, so true.
14. Stuff I kinda didn't wholly get 'cos I forgot everything. Just talk of amassing an army. Which one's Renl(e)y?
15. Still hate Joffrey. Wanna punch that little brat in the face.
16. Repeatedly.
17. Without mercy.
18. Don't speak to your mother like that!
19. Lol, he squeaks still!
20. Bloody hell, she's loud.
21. Oh wow. Whoa. What?!
22. Ohhhhhh, I get it now. They're looking for that blacksmith. Why the baby slaughter?
23. Arya!

So, yeah, pretty good I thought, but I kinda hoped Brienne would be in it.

The baby slaughter is because all of those kids together form the backbone of Ned, Stannis and Jon Arryn's position that Joffrey is an incest bastard. They were all Robert's bastards and not a one of them had the blonde hair thing happening.

I give the episode 9.5/10. It lost half a point because that girl was very loud.

Oh. That didn't come across too well.
