yeah they haven't really gone into how important the Kingsguard is suppose to be. on the show they come off as random guards.

Reading the character bios was incredibly helpfull. I'm pumped to see Gregor Clegane. And I noticed Hodor during the lineup in the initial episode and wondered about him.

Reading about Aemon, the old man at the Wall, and Jorah Mormont, and his relationship with his father, Jeor, who is a higher up on the wall, which means he has a close relation with Benjen, but must be somewhat conflicted because of Eddard. And the history and relations of the Lannisters. Everything is even more interesting now, and I can't wait for it all to further unfold.

I'm also intrigued by the fact that there's a lot of grey area in the morallity of the characters. Eddard is portrayed as extremely honourable, but reading his background shows some darker sides to him, and to everyone, and the guys who come off quickly as the bad guys, like the Targyreans, read as more likeable when they're viewed as little more than exiled children having been run out of their home at an age when they would have known no better. The girl hadn't even been born yet.

I could be offbase and maybe there is more to the story that we dont know. But thats just my guess. The phrase sticking a knife in someones back has never been a positive one. Maybe they feel he did it out of an agenda.
It's an honor thing. Jaimi was sworn to protect the king but he literally stabbed him the back so ed and robert cant respect that.

remember that once they join the nights watch they forsake their former lives so old family ties are supposed to be broken. Their family it's the nights watch now

Thegrey morality is what makes this story so good.there are few real white knights or dastardly villains. Even the characters you hate right now will have their side of the story told and they will seem more sympathetic

I usually DL it online, i hope it airs though.

Has anyone watched the show Camelot? I think it comes on Starz and it's from the same creator of The Tudors. I watched the first ep and it's not bad. Has that one cop from Flashfoward. Amazing how recognizing an actor will keep you interested in a show.

I enjoyed last night. The Imp is a complicated character. He vascilates between being the most likable character on the show, to an insufferable little prick, pretty goddamned quickly.

I'm glad I got to see Gregor. Sort of a cheap way to flesh out the world having Littlefinger sort of narrate the backgrounds on characters, but there may be more here for them to do any other way.

It seems like the Queen isn't even trying to hide her contempt for the Starks, and I'm not sure why. She seems too smart to be so aggressive toward him.

It also feels like they stalled a bit to try to build pressure. They probably could have pushed to get more action into this episode. But I'm happy with how it played out.

That it was. HBO has taken the occasion cliffhanger ending from The Sopranos, and turned into the formula for their writing. True Blood just ends each episode at the end of what's really the second act of a story, and so far, this appears to be running the same way.

I think she confronts him because he obviously doesn't care who is watching him. He tried sending in that guard to talk to the knight and when that didn't work out he just went and started questioning people himself. It seemed to me she just thought fu*kit if this guy is just gonna go blatently looking for me, I'll show him who he's dealing with.
