    Yeah the kid they picked to play Joffrey is perfect. And I am changing my mind about Caitlin now too. The acting is definitely supplanting the "look" in my mind now.

    I'm getting interested

    New episode tonight, "Lord Snow" (spoiling description for any non-readers watching):

     
    Arriving at King's Landing after his long journey, Ned is shocked to learn of the Crown's profligacy from his new advisors. At Castle Black, Jon Snow impresses Tyrion at the expense of greener recruits. Suspicious that the Lannisters had a hand in Bran's fall, Catelyn covertly follows her husband to King's Landing, where she is intercepted by Petyr Baelish, aka "Littlefinger," a shrewd longtime ally and brothel owner. Cersei and Jaime ponder the implications of Bran's recovery; Arya studies swordsmanship. On the road to Vaes Dothrak, Daenerys finds herself at odds with Viserys.

    Absolutely! He's great! Although I'll swear his accent is changing!

    Agreed! He's arrogant & unlikable on the surface but seems to be a rather decent & friendly chap underneath, having not read the books it'll be interesting to see what directions he takes in the series. Sean Bean is good as always too, which reminds me I need to buy the complete Sharpe box set!
    Theres several characters in Game of Thrones that are unlikable, so I'm looking forward to seeing some comeuppances later on!

    Heee Heee Heeee!!! I am loving the stuff coming from you guys that havn't read the books. Ohhhh. . stick with it. . .there are surprises and twists aplenty!! The characters you may hate now, you may not hate so much later, and vice versa. The best thing about the series is that the characters are all human, they all have an arc and they all feel real. Ohhhhhh!!!!! So excited!!!

    Tyrion is my favorite character in the books. And Peter Dinklage is doing a great job playing him. But he is an american, and alas. . .You can always tell when we do your accents. I'm hoping he will level off a bit as the season progresses.

    Well, when in doubt (or when you're cast in a fantasy tale), go with a "stage British" accent.
    Those aren't real problems, Sam.

    Yeah, that was a nice intro for Ghost, and the scenes between Jon and Sam were really well done.

    Those 60 minutes fly by.

    I realised last night that the girl teaching Daenerys how to please her husband is the rather tasty Roxanne McKee, I met her very briefly in a nightclub about 5 years ago while she was still playing "Louise" in the channel 4 student soap "Hollyoaks", she's fit in real life too
