Do you have a DVD player, then you could maybe rent the dvds of the first 2 seasons? It's worth it, believe me!

It's a really neat fantasy series. ten Enjoy!


DVD player? without a TV?

Oh, you mean on the computer?

Lol, it's not even my computer I use, I have to go to a public library to do fun stuff online. I don't know if they let you bring in DVD's from Blockbuster and play them on library computers.

You can always download it for free from the Net.

In Europe, it's the top most downloaded tv series ever. The copies I have were downloaded. The official dvds cost a fortune, more than the subscription for pay tv. Who wants to spend the money?

You can also read summaries of the book on-line, also for free. Easier and faster than reading GRRM's loooooong-drawn storylines. It's even legal. Twisted Evil

Download it? Maybe if you are in the UK or the US but sometimes hard to download stuff here in Australia because you aren't in the correct country... same with our stuff here - people overseas can't download shows made here overseas and complain about that....

Not to worry as I'm not that fussed about seeing it or even reading the series at the moment and it might come to free to air TV here eventually...

That's a good idea! The books are kinda difficult to get into, especially after the third one. I for one prefer reading the "Red Wedding" scene in a few paragraphs than a whole chapter.

I wonder how they'll do that scene on tv. On paper it turned off a lot of readers. I wonder if on screen it will have the same effect on viewers.

There's a faithful following on CoS, where the debate on characters can sometimes get as heated as the one on Snape and the Marauders, LOL!!

Yeah, I saw that. People jump on each other over their favorite characters. Some get away with it, because those threads are not monitored as closely as the HP-related threads. shameless grin

I finished A Dance with Dragons a few days ago, and wow. I wasn't looking forward to finishing the book, because this time I can't go off and get the next one. Sad


I was delighted to see the theory about Jon Snow's parentage here - I had my suspicions on that from the first book - all of Ned's thoughts about Lyanna and mysterious promises, and not including Jon when he mentally listed his children. Hmm.

And there are so many more questions now. Is this "Robert Strong" Gregor Clegane? Perhaps that creepy Qyburn healed him instead of killing him?

Jon, also, seemed to be slipping into Ghost at the end of the chapter. Whether just because he was unconcious or for his second life we don't know. However, I think it would make more narrative sense if he died, at least temporarily and it also would explain the Prologue to "Dance" - where we see Varamyr Sixskins explaining to us how death and second life works for wargs.



I hope Jon is still alive, or at least is revived by Melisandre; he's one of my favourite characters. But I do hope he isn't in Ghost's body for the rest of the series.

The Shuttle - I've had a look at different discussions, including the one on CoS, and most of them seem to get very heated, and sometimes nasty. There's a lot of irrational character hatred going on, too. Rolling Eyes

So what's the theory here? I haven't read Dance with Dragons. Nor Feast for Crows either. It got to be too heavy reading for me. Heavy in every sense. Holding one of those books gives you your weight-lifting session for the day!

So, is Jon Lyanna's and Rhaegar's son? That would make him a Targaryen and maybe one of the three heads of the Dragon?

I, too, hope he's not really dead.

The Lyanna and Rhaegar theory? Yep, that's the one I was referring to. Well, nothing has been confirmed yet in the books. Which I see as a good indication that Jon isn't dead. Why have all the build-up and mystery around his true parentage, and then kill the character off before it's resolved?!

Because killing characters off is what G.R.R. Martin does best? bleh
