    Or eavesdropped on prisoners' conversations. "Hmmm, this guy was just bragging about killing a knight in combat when he was a sixteen-year-old squire. I think I'll stand next to him with a sword, not look at him, and see what happens." :D

    PM sent!

    It's really great to see everyone's reactions as to what will happen etc.

    As a book reader, I must say there are a few story lines that have veered suddenly and I'm wondering where they're going myself. It's nice to have a little bit of surprise in that matter.

    It will be good to see how everything turns out.

    Yeah I had theon #2 on my beheading list after Joffrey but someone here kind of talked me out of it but no more. I hope he is tortured mercilessly.

    Well I missed season 1 because I did not have hbo but got it just before season 2 and caught up. Well worth the money for this show alone. I have very different views on pirating free tv shows and pay cable shows.

    My real question is why so many gingers in this world. I am not complaining but it is a world with a fiery crotch.

    Since every episode is available on hbogo and hbo on demand that does not seem like a good reason to pirate the show.

    You didn't read the comic carefully enough. The HBO online options can't be used unless you subscribe to cable TV. There's getting to be a sizable number of people these days who do everything online and don't actually subscribe to cable tv. They pay for itunes, netflix, etc for a reason. Then HBO says "we don't actually want your money unless you also give a bunch of money to a cable company, too". That's the point.

    Of course, you can wait for it to come out on DVD/BluRay/iTunes, but for season 1 that didn't actually happen until right before season 2. By then, you've missed out on all the conversations online and at the water cooler. And if you're lucky enough, you didn't have Ned's death spoiled for you.

    Of course, contrary to what some people would have you think, piracy is not the same as lost sales. There are plenty of people that would "pirate" it so they can watch it as it's released, and then buy it on DVD/Bluray when available.

    The HBO online options can't be used unless you subscribe to the right cable TV.

    If you don't have one of the specific cable companies that HBO supports, you can't use HBOGO.

    Tyrion seems to do whatever he wants to do. Tywin seems to do whatever he wants to do and gets to go upside Joffrey's head. Does Joffrey serve as king only at the pleasure of Tywin?

    Joff isn't of age yet, so others rule in his place. They can't take away his claim to the throne but it's complicated until he hits 17.

    I have no idea what you just said!

    Good.

    You have that backward. Tyrion is the Joffrey ***** slapper. :)

    Well, that's the way they'd like it to be, and that's the way they set it up to be. But Joffrey isn't cooperating, and there's nothing they can do about it (or else they'd be doing something about it).

    He's ruling on his own.
    But Tywin appointed Tyrion Joffrey *****-slapper, and as much as everybody loathes Tyrion, they're afraid enough of Tywin to let it stand.

    There must be a war going on in what passes for Joffrey's mind between the part of him that fears Gramps and the part of him that wants to make Tyrion even shorter.

    I have have Netflix and have often been eagerly anticipating something to come out on DVD only to realize that Netflix won't have it until 30 days after it is released and then it stays on the "extremely long wait" list forever.

    I read an intersting bit about the woman who plays Melisandre and the merkin that was used for the shadow-birthing scene. Said she had a lot of fun playing with it.

    Actually, it has to be a cable company that supports HBO Go. Not the other way around.
