People do know the show has been out for a year and season one is in dvd now... do people really expect for others not to talk about a show?

:lol: your spoilers are awesome! I refrain from speaking about stuff when there's an uproar but I seriously laugh at people who have spoilerphobia.

Another great week.
Spoiler: show
I had to fast forward through most of the Renly scene, but outside of that I loved this episode. They couldn't have picked a more perfect person to play Brienne. That chick is huge! No Danaerys this week, but it looks like she'll have a huge role next week. Also no Rob Stark. I know it's damn near impossible to squeeze all of these fantastic characters into one hour. Tyrion is the freaking man. Such a master manipulator.

Ha! I had to do that as well, Cal! :lol:

I can barely discribe how much I'm into this show. I find myself pausing it occassionally just to see how much more goodness is left in that episode. I'm usually around the 40 minute mark, although it only seems like 10-15 minutes have passed.

I'm in full on LOST mode with GOT, and best yet, don't have to deal with commercials!

I've been talking about the show with some people at work and it dawned on me during our lunch hour...

this season doesn't seem to have the same impact as the first season had.

When the show first started, each episode ended with such an OMG :shock: moment that you just had to sit there for a minute to make sure you really saw and processed what you think you saw.

So far, in season 2, we haven't had one of those endings yet. In my opinion at least.

To be sure, there are OMG moments within the episode, and they are still doing a great job of getting everyone to have the right beats in the right place at the right time, but it just doesn't "punch" the way season 1 did.

Now, having already read the books, there are certain things that I am expecting to happen, and maybe that lessens the impact. I also know that some of the "moments" I am looking forward to have the potential to be really jaw dropping as well, I'm just not sure how they'll do them on the screen.

Anyone else feeling the same?

Web, how about you stop? You're not adding anything to the thread. Once is funny, now it's just annoying.

I agree with you to an extent. I'm really rethinking whether I should read the 3rd book after this season is over.

Geez, who died and made you Mod? And you wanna know what's annoying? All the comic book covers in the various movie threads... now THAT gets old when you see something new and click on it just to get let down, at least mine are funny...

And yes, those Lannister's are a piece of work, I do love Peter Dinklage's character the most by far...
