The Game of Thrones Season 2

The preview trailer looks good to one who hasn't read the books (me)

I can't wait either the first season was so good. The wife and I host a small game of thrones night. We are going to try and get a keg of mead for the season opener. The guests might need a taxi ride home lol.

I've totally forgotten what happens when (as in what happens in book 2 versus 3 versus 4) so I'm excited to see how it unfolds!

I'm excited too!! I really wanted to read book 2 before watching this, but alas, I just won't have the time. I was looking in the library to see if they had it on CD, but they don't (or it's borrowed by someone else). And those books on CD are expensive to buy!!

Anyway, I will more than satisfied just watching!!

I'm kind of happy I didn't read the books. This way I go into the season with no idea of what will happen. Makes the shocking moments more awesome!

Last season I read the book while watching the season and finished the book a little bit after the season was over. I mostly did this because I was a bit lost for a few episodes and the book really helped clarify the relationships between the characters. I'm really not sure which is better. When I read books that were made into a movie first, the fun part of watching the movie is to see how they adapt it and if I pictured the main characters correctly. While it usually makes for the movie (in this case show) to be less satisfying than the book, it's still fun. On the other hand, sometimes I enjoy seeing the movie first, and like you, I have no preconceived notion about what is supposed to happen so when stuff happens, I am more surprised and could enjoy it more (like when Ned was killed last season, if I had know that was going to happen, I doubt I would have felt so terrible about it watching it, but of course if I had read the book first, I would have felt terrible about it when I read it). Usually, though, if I see the movie first, I can read the book picturing the characters as they are portrayed in the film and sometimes I enjoy the book better. Usually the books are better than the movie. In this case, I would say, they are equal. I enjoyed both equally.

newbie.
I have read all of the books. I will have forgotten enough to enjoy Season 2. I don't have HBO so I will watch at a friend's house or DVD or if it shows up on itunes or Amazon.

Don't be jealous, but I'll be watching the first episode of season 2 next Wednesday (the 21st) at a local movie theater! Sneak preview, snacks and sodas, some goodies given away apparently.

Of course I'll report back next Thursday and tell you all how amazing it was.

Just imagine how awful it would be to see it on the 21st, and then have to wait almost THREE weeks for the next episode!

I've decided that the tv series is so good I'm going to read book 2 after season two airs. I'd rather be surprised by what I see instead of by what I read.

I am pretty sure in other season 2 threads that spoilers about season 1 are ok. The assumption that people who haven't seen season 1 will not look at season 2 threads. Can someone correct me if my assumption is wrong?

Either way, 2 weeks, I cannot wait. I've also decided that I'll probably read book 2 (or listen to it more likely) after the TV season, unless I get confused with the characters again.

BTW, do you all watch with subtitles on? I found last time it helped with some of the dialogue.
