Since there are books, is it possible that they can continue the story line after the book ends? Or will they end it like the book ends?

The final two books of the series have not been published yet.

Supposedly the author is working on a new one now, although his last new one was preceding by a many year gap, so who knows when it will come out!

Plus, I think the show is starting to take some creative license, so who knows where they will go with things. Can't say more than that without leaking spoilers.

I only saw 10 minutes of one episode last year while visiting friends. In that few minutes a character was heard to say, "You're a f_*king c_*t",and then it was repeated again within a few more minutes.

Ok, so the show looks great, the characters look about right and obviously someone has put a lot of effort into making it look so good.

But, if I want to hear obscene language I will invite the ferals/boguns around for coffee, because they can say the "F" word 6 times in one 10 word sentence without even realising they have. And, all people they refer to are called the "C" word. So again you hear it a few times in one sentence.

So, I do not want to hear obscene language coming out of my TV, in my loungeroom. I don't invite ferals/boguns for the same reason.

Look what the agenda has done in such a short time. It's made being a stupid, respect-lacking, brainless bogun fashionable.

Yep, "Idiocracy" here we come.

I think its best you don't watch more than that 10 minutes if it's the cursing that bothers you. There is way more than the language that would upset you.

There are times that scenes from 'Brokeback Mountain' seem tame in comparison.

I second this. If you cant handle some cursing, this show is definitely not for you.

There's a reason why the main character death scenes in this show are rated as the most gruesome of all TV shows.

That's what I was thinking. While I could do without the cursing and 5 kajillion boob shots (among other shots), I can still enjoy the show. I have heard some phrases that did make me cringe, but I have heard those same phrases while shopping in Wal-Mart.

the books don't " end " - apart from character deaths - there are no conclusions to any story arcs


SPOLIERS :

and sometimes even being dead doesn't mean its truly over for a character

Isn't cussing a form of expression? you conformist...


jk..



but really.....why the hate?




Swearing is believed to have been around since the beginnings of language. However, written language came long after spoken language, so it's impossible to know the exact details of how the practice began. And since swearing is technically a social taboo, many written texts leave it out altogether. Researchers first see profanity in some of the very first written texts, dating back about 5,000 years and including off-color descriptions of human forms and functions [source: Angier]. Profanity in written texts doesn't appear with much frequency, however, until the about the 16th century -- the works of William Shakespeare, for example, include profanity, which in some cases is so severe that his works have sometimes been censored over the years [source: Socyberty].

Will do. I am really enjoying it more than I thought I would (except for Joffrey). I didn't expect to like it all, which is why it took me so long to check it out.

The effects, characters, and story lines are constantly twisting in many directions. It keeps you interested for sure.






That's what drew us in, the locations and multitudes of twisted plots going on
Boy, you have a looong way to go......*no spoilers, I know*

The way we got hooked is we never saw season 1 and just before Season 2 came out, they had a marathon of them all day long on Sat.-- the day before the new season
Well, since it was raining and we were bored, we thought WTH, let's see what all the hoopla is about with GOT and watched the whole season 1 that day
Then watched Season 2 the next night and that's all she wrote, now we are addicted to it. LOL

We really admire the work that goes into authenticating the costumes as well as the various locations
No blue screens with phony scenery...Iceland, New Zealand, Morocco, just to name a few areas

Can't wait for Sun.nite's episode, except that will leave only 1 left for the season, then we'll be having GOT withdrawal symptoms!!!
*sniffles*

So, here is the thing, even in the area where you requested no spoilers, there are spoilers in this thread (hey, this season and this episode..yadda yadda). GoTs is meant to basically blindside you with stuff..and you got people here saying to be prepared for being blindsided.

So, ignore everyones comment, and just watch the rest of em without checking out any more about the series until your caught up...because people love giving spoilers out..even when they aren't trying.

What may be fun though is to just use this thread to type out reactions to remarkable episodes...watch the progression.

Its pretty much the best show I have seen..ever. Best writing, best character development, most authentic creation. Had mom and dad watch it, they became super hooked.

i have to chuckle at the offence caused by a smattering of profanity and nudity amidst a sea of violence

I started to realize that when they killed Lord Stark. I thought for sure they weren't going to. I hated that they actually did.

Then again, that is part of what makes it so good. You never know.



This is precisely why I love GoT.
It doesn't stick to the conventional expectations. If it did, we'd all be living happily ever after in Winterfell by now...

This is the only televsion series I'm following......I am pretty obsessed, I'd say! lol
What I like about GOT is that you cannot speculate and you cannot anticipate what's going to happen.....no character is safe! I admit it's a 'tad' gory at times and they don't hold back during sexual scenes also, but maybe that is one of the erm....'charms'...lol

I have to admit that the other night, watching The Viper Vs The Mountain, I ended up covering my mouth and almost screeched in horror......

Oh yes, he's an easy character to hate. And Jack Gleeson (sp?) plays him to the hilt. The portrayal of King Joffrey Baratheon makes me want to reach into my computer monitor and choke the life out of him.

Martin wrote him very well.

What is it?

More Tolkienesque kings, queens and goblins escapism, by any chance?

I think I'll pass.

I can't watch the show, personally. I did start it, made it to episode 4, and I'll admit, it was pretty good so far. But I am one of those people who gets really annoyed when everyone and their mothers won't stop talking about something. Everywhere you go, it's GoT this, GoT that, you can't go anywhere without hearing about it. So usually when that happens, I can't watch the show. That, and apparently only the terrible survive in that show/book, so I'd rather not read/watch something that'll piss me off on a regular basis. lol

Now, thanks to South Park, this is all I think of when people mention GoT.(OP, don't watch the video, there is a spoiler in there, even though it's meant for humor. You've been warned. lol)

www.youtube.com...

I have no clue how to imbed. lol
