Aware that there is a thread on it about during production and all, but there should be a thread for it once the show airs proper ... on April 17th US time. So it will be available via the usual sources sometime Monday afternoon. ;)

Who's pumped? :)

We might need two threads, for those who've read the books and those who haven't.

Read the first 200 pages, got distracted, stopped and had to return it to the library. I was enjoying it so probably shouldn't have stopped. I don't think it will matter though, the series will probably be stand-alone amazing anyway.

ooooo downloading now. Will give feedback in ~10 minutes. 627MB doesn't sound like it will be incredible.

EDIT: Yep, decent quality. 1 hour long and such an early rip... pretty damn good!

Good to see they have captured the absolute campaigneriness of some of the characters then. :thumbsu:

As someone who has read all the books I was pretty happy with that first episode. Catelyn seems to be a poor casting choice and a poor actress but I can live with that. The rest of the casting choices seem spot on though as some have mentioned. Shame we didn't get a close up of the Hounds face, kinda wanted to see how they did it.

Loved it. Looks awesome.

Kinda scared of getting on Wikipedia and looking up some of these names in case I get spoiled. Will rely on the HBO page for it.

It was great. The acting was fine (especially Sean Bean) and the women were hot. I would totally do Cersei, but Catelyn looks so plain compared to the Catelyn I envisioned from the books.
