I'm I going to enjoy the books if I see the show first?

I'm watching via Netflix finally, and judging by what I've seen so far I don't think you'll ruin anything by watching first. As is to be expected I guess, some of the scenes are awesome, straight out of the book (as I imagined them) and some are pitifully comical.

Thanks for the response, we just watched the 1st two episodes last night, enjoyed both of them and looking forward to the rest.

Books will probably have to wait until next Winter

Working my way through the dvds, I think I'm on the last one. Pretty good, but I wish they'd have cast somebody hotter to be Cersei, and Renly wasn't a faggot in the books.

I think you will. On the making-of documentary George R.R. Martin talks about how it would never have worked as a single movie and was very pleased with the HBO series.

Haven't gotten that far in the book(s) yet, but why in the world does every show have to have some queer in it these days?


Personally, I think this is probably one of the best casting line ups for any show as a whole I've ever scene. Everyone plays their parts exceptionally well (my opinion at least).

The comment about the queen, google her. She's pretty hot in real life, so is the blond girl (Dany). At least in the show their not all done up in perfect make-up and hair like other shows (Camelot)


GF and I just finished season one of Camelot last night, enjoyed the first few episodes but isn't even a close call between it and Game of Thrones. Some of the characters down right suck (except Morgan, Gwenevere, & maybe Merlin).

I am working my way through the books (audio books) and I am on the second book now. I have been holding off from ordering the DVDs for the first season till after I have read all the books just incase there are differences I don't want to get confused.

So far I like the books

Don't get me wrong, Lena Headey is smokin, in 300 I thought she was awesome. Just not a great fit I don't think for this part, but acting wise I think she's doing great. And the chick that plays Dany is very hot.

Now Eva Green from Camelot, whoohee. Very nice, but there again, Arthur is this little pencil necked dweeb.
