From what I've been led to believe, all the stuff you guys are talking about fleshes out over the life of the books, to the point where you get to see these families span a generation. The question is will the show get the ratings long enough for them to keep picking it up and making new ones to get through all the books.

her not being burned was a special event, it's not really explained why she didn't burn this time, but george martin has clarified that she is normally no more immune to fire then anyone else.. her brother is human, just like she is. some of her ancestors were a bit crazy and thought they were immune to fire and ended up dieing when they tried to hatch dragons.

He's way too clean and doesn't fit with the rest of the cast, granted he should look richer and more polished than the others, problem is he looks like a Knight out of a Disney movie than anywhere close to the knights in GoT. And like i said before i really hold the Married with Children aspect against him and i can't make it go away no matter how much i try when he's on screen.

Neds the biggest dumbass to me, and his wife. It drives me crazy watching these 2 idiots create their own problems.

i like the dwarf and Jon Snow too. Thats about all i like and if they all died i'd stop watching.

thats so true!!! Now that I think about it he looks like the guy who played in Shrek, the guy who tried to get Shrek's girl. Its a cartoon but still.

Yea man, I have many fav characters, I guess its the show drawing me in. Aria is dope and Jon is cool too.

And Ned is probably my fav due to his "honor" and such, and that does cause more trouble for himself so I get what you mean. His wife looks like E.T. to me, I bet his bastard's mom was hot as hell.

there was supposed to be a 5 year gap between the last set of books and the new ones coming out but george martin had a hard time making it work. i'm not sure how he resolved it. he admitted that he should have made the children older to start off with. (arya is like 11 or 12 and rob and john are around 16 at the beginning of the books) the hbo series aged them a bit which works better.

that's actually how he is supposed to look like. hes a pretty boy and a "knight out of the songs". him and Loras are supposed to be very good looking (loras is gay though)

Im sure they will try to make the story parallell the books. I hope they make this show last some, expecially if it stays so compelling like it is now.

I wonder if we will ever meet daddy Lannister? The rich guy, I always thought he was dead but they talk about him like he is alive?


the imp is not really crooked. he is actually one of the more moral characters in the story. he does his family duty as a lannister so you make think he is bad. he gets alot of hate from others and even his own family because he is a dwarf. he is misunderstood by almost everyone.

So...a criminal can be free if his champion beat the state's champion? That makes no sense whatsoever.

But I suppose they need to establish that the little imp's very cunning.

it's trial by combat. they are basically saying if God deems you innocent then he would let you win. it was a legit form of justice back in the day

Quote:
Trial by combat (also wager of battle, trial by battle or judicial duel) was a method of Germanic law to settle accusations in the absence of witnesses or a confession, in which two parties in dispute fought in single combat; the winner of the fight was proclaimed to be right. In essence, it is a judicially sanctioned duel. It remained in use throughout the European Middle Ages, gradually disappearing in the course of the 16th century.
sounds retarded but this is the same kind of thinking as dunking an accused witch. if she drowns then she's not a witch (but she'd dead) if she doesn't drown then she's a witch so she gets executed

I see. I guess that makes sense.

Also, who is that guy who was willing to be his champion? Wasn't he one of Stark's knights?

There is a guy like that in the NBA....

One other thing, when the woman told him that he didn't fight with honor, was she referring to him throwing stuff, him running around or him killing a defeated man? Because the fight seemed fine considering he had no head armor and shield.
