    Game of Thrones (TV series) excitement

    If any of you yahoos havn't read the George RR Martin Series "Song of Ice and Fire", well you need to quit reading this and get to it. . .pronto. It is one of my favorite series of books of all time. Just really really good stuff. It's fantasy, but really its more about intrigue and character interaction than about sword and sorcery.

    Having said that, I found out recently that HBO is possibly picking up the series for a show. The casting is wonderful and all is looking well. They recently filmed the pilot. . and I have my fingers, toes, and penises (don't ask) crossed that this goes through. If Game of Thrones and Walking Dead are both on during the same season. . I may never leave my house. . .my pants will be too full of geek spooge to even move off the couch.

    A few months ago, my dad played one of the king's men in the HBO adaptation. The "pilot" is actually a mini-series of the first book in the series, if the shows does well they will do a new, separate miniseries for each of the novels.

    From the stuff he says he saw on the set, it looks like it will be pretty good.

    Awesome, Kraken! I had no idea they'd started shooting! I think I've read most of the books in this series 3 or 4 times, as the world is pretty well put-together and expansive and the sort of story is a mix of the wondrous and gritty.

    Now if G.R.R. Martin can just get his act together and finish the latest book in the series...

    Very cool!! It is getting good word from all around, so it's nice to hear it's also looking good from the inside.

    I hope this is real! I don't have volume on my work PC, so I can't hear any of the accompanying sound, but it looks good!

    Now, if only we can get that next book...

    Oh yes it's real, that was the preview played on HBO a while back. It looks like filming is in full swing. I am so excited over this show I could . . . oh. . . . oh my. . . nevermind. It looks like it's slated for release in Spring of 2011. So not really that far off!
