Nah, it'll be like the Sharpe series, where only her and her lovable but slightly oafish companion live.

Till the end of course.
I thought he should act responsibly and just kill himself.

I'm allways slightly concerned he is going to die from his heavy breathing.

Then I'm not suprised when his character in anything but sharpe does die.

Except National Treasure. Because it's wank.

Newest Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAZzCFPcLoo

Mainly because of the lack of Jon Snow and Daenrys, and TMI on the whole fat dude sex scene thing.

They had to go and refer to his member as a "pink mast", too. *shudder*

I dunno man, all those men of the Nightwatch all alone up in the north.....

I mean, not everybody would be comfortably close/endowed with money to look for 'buried treasure'.

Well, there is Loras Tyrell and Renly Baratheon. And one of the Night's Watch was sent to the wall for being a "boywhore"(I think his name was Satin). But the heterosexuals are certainly the majority in the series. :P

I haven't read the books, but I have seen a few HBO series and yes, I will see this one as well.

Anything with Sean Bean also gets a + from me.

Then I'll just use this opportunity to again recommend those books in the warmest possible fashion. Great, great reads. And I concur with the general Sean Bean sentiments expressed here.

I'm on my 3rd re-read(I read the series every 3 years) and trying to firmly fix my own image of the characters firmly in my mind.

So, according to Johann's circle theory, all it takes is one step to the right?

Alright, that was pretty obscure. I haven't read it yet either. Apparently I should.

I actually found most of the cast pretty much spot on so far. Only Bronn and Lisa Arryns respective actors really differ significantly from how I pictured them. A lot of great choices, and quite a few rather yummy ones as well. Sibel Kekilli as Shae? Yes please!

Really? Now that's cool!

Would it be acceptable to only watch the show, but not read the books?

Acceptable? Of course. But even if it is a great adaption (as it looks to be) - you'll still be missing out. Really Gnu, get the first book, preferably in English, and read it. Hell, PM me youe adress and I'll mail it to you tomorrow. If you don't like it, just watch the show then. If you do, addiction will do the rest.

Suit yourself then.  :wink:

The offer still stands if they don't have it in English. The translation isn't too bad, but the original text is simply better.

By the way, winter-is-coming.net (a fanblog) has a complete up to date cast online here:

http://winter-is-coming.net/features/cast/

Just mouse over the pictures for the actor names. Clicking will lead to a corresponding character and actor bio. Very nicely done.

I'm usually a snob when it comes to English books i.e. I just don't like to read Dutch translations. Often a lot is lost in translation, I spot places where the translator did not get some English saying and just literally translates it and ends up making no sense. Also words that have different meanings being translated the wrong way.
Most Dutch people don't even notice it but English was always my strong point so for me it's really jarring.

However, the Dutch translation of the Fire & Ice series is really, really, really good. Kudos to that translator!
