While I really want to see this, I just hope Martin finishes the next Volume soon... but my guess is 2012 or so :(

Well, Arya will at least be pretty cute, it seems. :D

Wait, weren't the Lannisters supposed to be blonde (actual quote is "golden hair", I believe)?




Oh well. Those two seem easily to be among my favourites anyway. :)

Jaime,Tyrion and Arya are three of the best developed characters in the book series in my opinion.

Plus I think they cast a perfect girl for Arya for TV show, also for Jaime (the part where he tells Ned about justice for killing Targaryen king looks great).

Just saw the first episode (though in a low-quality TV rip, obviously), and it's awesome. It starts rather slowly (though the epilogue beyond the wall is there, at the beginning), but ends with quite a punchline ("The things I do for love ..." for those who have read the books). And the Imp is just great. :D

I have also watched the first Episode and without knowing the books I like it a lot so far :) I am curious how it will all evolve :)

I just watched that 15min sneak preview and it looked great.
I just hope that having detailed knowledge of books isn't gonna ruin my experience watching the show. Sometimes screen adaptions are way off. :(
But I guess Martin kicked their asses if they went too far. :D

I have read authors of similar genre like Tolkien, Feist, Clarke, etc.... and I can asure you that Martin is really making a reader (or in this case a viewer) go "WTF?!" multiple times during the story so far. :P
