    After all, you don't mean to mess with him.

    But...

    I hope they don't change the opening credits...I've been humming the score for a week now. Best opening credit EVER.

    ...and the show is pretty good too ;)

    I can testify that the opening credits music is the same.
    Episode 1 features a new location though...

    I don't like the idea of downloading unless I am paying for the episode. I will check that option out. I doubt if they will stream it on Netflix.

    I don't think HBO fits that model. They don't offer the episodes for sale during the season because they want you to subscribe to HBO.

    I read all the books (except the last one) before watching Season 1. I've listened the the last (not final - hopefully) book since Season 1 and am looking forward to Season 2.

    One things that I also did was find a website that has synopsises of all the chapters of the books. It is all cross linked (to allow you to also look up characters) and has the ability to set what you've read, so that when you follow a link the material dynamically changes to not reveal spoilers. So if you've only read book 1 and a character dies in book 2, no reference to his death will show up if you only reveal book 1 info.

    Oh I just googled that website and they have stuff about the show now too.

    It has been so long since I read the first books that it would have been hard to enjoy the last set since there are so many characters doing so many things at this point. Often stuff happens in one book simultaneous with stuff in another book (from a second point of view).

    recap, my foot. I plan on rewatching season 1 in its entirety in order to get ready for season 2.

    And yes, I will not FF through the opening credits :)

    I'm with you Anubys -- we bought the Blu-ray set (anathema to many here, I know) and are working our way through them.
    One nice feature of the Blu-ray set is a series of features about the history of Westeros read by the actors (with "pen and ink" style illustrations). I finally was able to figure out a lot of the relationships of the families to one another, and history and relationship of the 2 major religions

    Do blue rays cause less cancer than red rays?

    Yes, it's a fact. Plus, depending upon where you are from originally, you may develop superpowers.

    You'd be more convincing if you used numbers, preferably with decimal points...

    One week, one hour and forty minutes. Even better, I start Spring Break on Friday afternoon. :)

    I'm just thrilled it's not a 10pm show for me! I can watch it live!

    Same here. I hate that Justified is at 10. I have to wait and watch after classes on Wednesday.

    I am so ready for GoT to resume. I've rewatched all the first season on HBO On Demand, watched bits and pieces during three marathon last weekend on one of the HBO channels, and reread a little of the second book just to compare.

    Now, in an hour the thirty minute recap is showing. I hope they show a little of the new characters.

    Just finished the Blu-rays of Season 1. And the ending (with Dany) was every bit as seriously cool as I remembered, which I wasn't expecting, since usually those kinds of things grow in my imagination.

    Bring it on, Game of Thrones dudes. Bring it on!

    I'm just going to rewatch the last ep of S1. I've caught bits and pieces of the other episodes on the various HBO channels over the last month but I figure if I re-watch the last ep of last season, I will be good to go for the new one. I will probably watch them back to back.
