    Just realised something... just been catching up on missed episodes...

    I don't recall Renly Baratheon being gay in the books. Why have they done that?

    I too was highly confused by this, I was wondering if I'd missed a chapter in the book. So far, really liking it having just started reading the second book.

    I find myself getting more excited for it as the show
    heads to that pivotal moment in the first book
    (why do I keep writing SOILER every time?!).

    That was truly a brilliant episode. Had a couple of great parts from the book which transferred perfectly to the screen. So good I watched it twice :D

    Yes it will, just 2 episodes left if you've watched them up to date so far (8 shown out of 10).

    I think it's been great so far, I haven't read the books but I will be in between this season and the next.

    Im loving it, this weeks episode was definetely the best.

    Im afraid to read the books in case the show then doesnt compare to the books as is usually the case.

    This show is SPECTACULAR! Very impressed with what HBO has done with it, though I don't want to read the books now because I feel like I'd be "spoiling" it... Rather wait for more seasons and watch the story unfold that way.

    For the record, the Lannister dwarf is by far my favorite character. :)

    Oh no, read the books. The TV series is as close to the books as you can possibly get. In many places, they even use the speech from the book word for word. There's a few minor changes (such as the ages of the children), but the changes haven't been made just for the sake of it.

    I finished reading through Feast for Crows. Going to preorder the volume coming out in July, A Dance With Dragons. Great series of books and tv series.

    Definitely worth reading the books. There's a lot of "in the character's head" stuff that you just can't convey in a TV series. There's also a lot more background and history to all the houses in the books.

    I would say reading the book and watching the series has only enhanced the story, it's great to see The Wall on such a grand scale.

    Wait. What? They're going to go back in time and show the two together? How is that going to work - Ned & Robert will be in a quantum
    dead/not dead
    state...and surely it will get confusing trying to watch two episodes at once. Or will it be like Contact where the phases of each episode will be at 90 degrees to each other.

    Oh, wait. I see what you mean now. :p
