I am over the moon. Between the season premiere of this, and the season fin of The Walking Dead, I honestly might rupture something.

I've read all of the books, so I know what's going to go down, but I'm still dying in anticipation!

Are they only doing half of book three in this season? I think I read that somewhere but can't remember where.

Yup, only the first half. Gotta stretch it out if we have any hope of having Winds of Winter published by the time the show gets to the end of Dance with Dragons

^ Ha. True.

Apparently they'll be focusing a lot on Dany this season - hope she'll be a bit more interesting after season 2.

Ditto! I've read all the source material for both shows; the main difference is that TWD never ceases to disappoint me with its adaptation choices (inexplicable character/plot omissions; crappy add-ons like the CDC plot). By contrast, I'm super-impressed with how well GOT captures the books - in some cases, even improving upon them (e.g., the addition of the Arya/Tywin scenes and that heartwrenching scene with Theon and Ser Rodrik last season). I CANNOT WAIT for season 3 because Storm of Swords is my favorite book in the series, and so much of it is tailor-made for the screen.

Oh man, I hope it's not too Dany-centric. Definitely my least favorite of the "main" characters. I'm most excited about the Theon plot for Season 3, partly because Alfie Allen kicked ass last season and partly because a lot of it is apparently new material.

I have not read the books GOT is based on, or TWD comics, but I plan to read both.

I actually have the first 2 books. I started reading the first, and decided to hold off for a bit. I hear they are fantastic, and what I read backed this up.

I actually do not mind it when people veer from a book, when it comes to (specific types of) television shows. It actually makes me feel like I al getting two different stories, based on characters I already like or am invested in. I can see where it would pay to follow GOT, and also pay to take more liberties with some.

I hope this season is great! It sounds promising.

Not an overly exciting episode but then I wasn't expecting it to be. They've got to reintroduce everyone and set things up. Sadly none of my favourite characters were in this one, apart from Tyrion who I kind of just wanted to hug. I sincerely hope he kills his father and take everything for himself.

I watched this morning ( had to watch TWD finale last night). I missed some of my favorites (Arya) but am liking the addition of Margaery, and like Ciaran Hinds as an actor.

I struggle with all the plots and secondary characters - just a lot to keep track of as a non-book reader.

I loved it. When it ended, I said "nooooo"

I almost finished first three books and I still struggled with all the secondary characters. There isn't any depth or explanation of them in the books, they're just there and by the middle of the third book I got so aggravated that I didn't know who anyone was and I just stopped reading it.

That's my only issue with the series - there are too many people.

I loved the episode. I was sad when it was over. But, I did not like Ciaran Hinds being cast as Mance Raider. It's not that I don't like Hinds, but he was Caesar in another HBO series (Rome), just a couple years ago, so he seems too repetitive. C'mon HBO, don't just keep rotating your stable of actors.
