    I'm just about done with the first, so I've got quite a ways to go in the series . As great as the show is, I've found the book even better.

    With that said, HBO has done a really good job staying with the story line (from what I've read so far, I've heard there might be a few differences later on).

    I have yet to any of the books, but I do watch the show.
    I don't keep up with it and usually watch it after they air the first time, but I have to catch up!

    I must say that so far, this season hasn't really gotten me very thrilled yet.
    Not up to the standards of past seasons when every episode was a good, stand alone story. These are all an open ended preview of what's to come.
    I still love the thing, though!

    I'm a Game of Thrones newbie.
    Only watched the first five of season 1 so far.
    Some of the acting and dialogue have been atrocious, but episode 2 got me interested in watching
    I rather enjoyed ep 5 too.
    Like the little dwarf fellow, good actor with a tremendous voice and I like the little tomboy girl.
    Watching ep 6 and 7 in a couple of minutes time.
    Does it get better?

    Yes. You're right in the midst of the good stuff. Interesting you would like those two characters...

    Says a lot about my psychology, I guess.
    But also, the dwarf reads books and the girl is in Doctor Who next season (I think) , Which is my favourite show of all time.

    I'm about at the same spot - I've finished the first, somewhat started the second and have also started the companion book.

    Since the series (book) isn't finished I'm debating whether to hurry up and catch up or wait till more/the next book comes out. I always end up re-reading the preceding books in a series when a new one comes out anyways. But there are a lot of fan/conspiracy theories out there and I don't want to get all into those without having a decent understanding of the books.

    Just this moment finished S01 ep 08 and must confess it's getting pretty exciting.
    Might even watch the next one tonight.

    There are only 10 episodes per season so there's really no reason you shouldn't be caught up and able to watch the new episode this Sunday.

    Addictive.
    Natalie Dormer is my favorite. (Not her character, just her.) I'd never seen her before. She is absolutely Beautiful!
    My favorite characters keep getting killed.:mad:
