I'm so ******* excited for this.

I have been waiting for this to come out for almost as long as I've been waiting for "Dance of Dragons"

I thought the show was good, just like most of HBO's original programming. I'll DVR the series for sure.

Not one single character did I find to sweep me in...great effects..you know a shows bad when a midget gets so much face time...Too much sex and lacked storyline big time...Found it very tough to become engaged...

Best show I have seen in awhile is Breaking Bad by a mile...

This is my favorite book series, but I don't think it's possible to make a show on this. Way too many characters to follow, and they'd need a narrator to explain a lot of the back story. Plus the characters in the series develop and change slowly, which makes it hard for a show to engage people.

I think they're going to cut the majority of the subplots out to save time, which will either kill the show if it goes several seasons, or kill the series when those sub plots become neccessary.

Kingsmasher: The midget is the best character in the series, by a long shot.
