Fuuuuckkkk, getting close! I'm going to have a house full of nerds over at my place next Saturday for a season 1 marathon. I may or may not be sporting this shirt for the event...
Finally less than a week to go for Season 2. Blackwater is going to be an epic episode
I cannot wait to watch the next few seasons with my wife who has not read the books. Her reactions to all that happens is going to be amazing! She is going to be $#@!ing pissed at Theon.
And also, I lose the timeline completely when talking about the books. I don't think I hardly put any of them down once I picked them up late last year. Running through the books like that kills any attempt I might have a keeping what was in which book straight. Anyone else have that problem?
i am about to embark on a 25 hour drive and am thinking about getting one of these books on audio for my trip. i have seen season one on hbo and have not read any of these yet.. where should i start?
Nice, you'll be glad you did. Like others have mentioned, for the most part the series was fairly true to the books, but there is still so much going on that the books (or specifically Game of Thrones for you) is worth the read.
Just did a quick Google search, and the audio books are available through iTunes.
downloading now..never bought an audio book there before. 19.95 on was the cheapest i saw. slow as $#@! download though.
they are available on itunes. i would recommend the ones read by roy datrice in lieu of the ones read by john lee...
^^^ Dammit I love his portrayal of that character!
Latest video up here:

why are you people using spoiler tags in the "SPOILERS GALORE" thread?

This made me laugh...
That is funny
$#@!... just realized some people may not have read past book two.
if you haven't read all the books then there is another thread for you. We shouldn't have to make a 3rd thread to accomodate the 4 people who have read some but not all of the books
margaery... would , but still , could be made much hotter
Completely agree. I'm still finishing up ADWD but choose this thread because the other thread kind of sucks $#@!. Still, I don't expect people to put spoiler tags in a thread dubbed SPOILERS GALORE.Originally Posted by northloop

Big time spoiler here: lyrics are going to be included in this seasons intro.
While not as funny as the above video, this one is pretty good.
Sansa, Bran and Arya singing the intro:
Another vote for making this a true spoilers-galore, no-book-is-off-limits thread. Or starting a third thread for that. I can't remember what was in which book.
I'd vote for all books being fair game. The problem with not making every book free game is the producers might take stuff from book 3 and add it into this season. So if someone comes into this thread after only reading book 2, they might get spoiled by something we talk about as being different from book 2. I think lowery got something spoiled for him that way. This season isn't Clash of Kings. It's season 2 of Song of Ice and Fire. So they are going to take Storm of Swords parts and move them forward. They may take something from Feast of Crows and move it forward. They may kill off someone earlier or leave them alive instead of dead.
I guess if someone wants their own thread that's only book 2 then they should start it but I don't think you'd see many responses.
I can't keep the books separate either. I don't think it's possible to do this thread any other way than having everything open for discussion. Having the other thread be NO BOOKS AT ALL should be enough. The spoiler gnashing of teeth is getting out of hand.

Game of...$#@!ing Game of $#@!ing Thrones.
Ok so I'm listening to the audio books again and I have a question.
I'm in the middle of Feast for Crows and Samwell just bumped into Cat (Arya) in Bravos. When he told her he was with the nights watch, why didn't she ask him about Jon Snow?
