If you need to contextualize the episode for anyone, it ended on a baby killing rampage. That's all you need to know.

Good episode. The baby killing made me sick, was really hard to watch that part but other than that I thought it was great!

I plan on reading the books after Season 2 is over. I don't really have the time now, but I'm anxious to get into them this summer after Season 2 wraps up. I figure thats as good a time as any to start reading.

You really really need to start with book one. I did find it hard to get through the first one after i basically knew every cliffhanger, but you get to know the different characters soooo much better through reading it

Yeah I meant I'll start on Book 1 after Season 2. I don't want the rest of this season spoiled, so I plan on waiting. I'm also toying with the idea of waiting until the entire series is done, just because my friends who have read the book said you don't really miss much on the show and the production value is through the roof.

You absolutely miss a lot if you don't read the books. The books are hundreds of pages long. The show is great and I am looking forward to watching season 2 but it's impossible to capture everything or even most things from a book series like this.

bhaarat's right. Joff and Tommen are not righful heirs so the eldest brother of King Robert has the strongest claim to the throne, and that's Stannis. Renli is the younger brother of the bunch but he's also claiming right to the throne b/c Stannis is basically a stick in the mud and nobody likes him. lol

I think each season = 1 book. Not sure they'll be able to keep up with that though.

Season one was book one but I don't know if the pace will pick up heading into season two.

it shouldn't, since book 2 and 3 are very long and detailed, also the last 2 books are not written yet.

Yeah. I don't think they can keep up with everything. It makes sense that they just named the TV series "Game of Thrones" rather than locking themselves into 1 book per season. The storylines diverge too much after the first book.

They will apparently use some scenes from book 3 already in this season and some scenes from book 2 in season 3. Also they will split book 3 into two seasons.

What has been missing alot was the dynamic between Sansa and the Hound. I feel like that was the biggest thing i took away from book1 that wasnt in the series.

I know they had some elements in season one that were from later books. Nothing huge and it sounds like they'll continue basically doing it in a time frame they think will translate best to a 10 show season. So we will may still see the relationship w/Sansa and the Hound since they made it a point to show the exchange between her and Tyrion in episode one.

Book 3 is being discussed as 2 seasons b/c there's just so much there. Let's hope they make it that far! Here's a solid article (interview w/the writer/producers) that explains it all pretty well.

Is this something that I should watch? It starts tomorrow over here and the trailer looks kinda interesting. A friend of mine have been telling me to watch it for some months now but I wasn't sure it was worth my time..

watch season 1, read book 1, watch season 2, read book 2. or some order like that, but make sure to read the book.

I tried re watching the season after reading, i couldn't get into it again, cause the book was that good.

If you have the time you should definitely read the books. It's the best fantasy series of all time and it isn't close at all. George R R Martin is a fantastic writer.

I wouldn't go that far. I like Wheel of Time, and the new stuff Brandon Sanderson is writing is also very good. Martin is a grittier writer but that is a stylistic choice. I wouldn't call it better, just different.

I'd call it better. I've read Sanderson and Jordan. Jordan might be the most infuriating writer of all time. He takes five pages to explain something that can be done in one. It's a great way to paint a picture in your mind, but 10+ books of that is just flat out ANNOYING.

Sanderson is the new kid on the block and he is very talented. Mistborn is a great series and easy to pick up and read, and I've heard nothing but good things about his new series Stormlight Archive.

I'm also not a fan of a series where NO ONE DIES. It isn't realistic.

All of that said, neither of them touch George R R Martin. At least for me.

I'm just glad you didn't include Terry Goodkind. We would have had to resort to fisticuffs.
