    You're all the same, going for the classic angry guy who will never love you and will make you miserable. Leaving perfectly good, smart, Robb at home longing from a distance! ;)

    :D

    Don't misunderstand me. I don't have the hots for Snow. I just find his character fascinating!
    In fact, I'm not sure there's anyone I'd call eye candy on this show... maybe Jorah.

    On DirecTV we are getting a free Starz weekend, not HBO.

    Doesn't matter, I have HBO anyway. I have the last ep from S1 downloaded from On Demand and waitng to be viewed, probably Saturday night, and then I'll be all primed for the new season.

    Were you a big Sir Richard fan on Downton Abbey? :D

    I don't think Robb/Jon really fit that dichotomy.

    Now being in love with Jamie, that would probably fit the bill.

    I don't know what that is.

    Gross. Jamie is incestuous. That right there kills anything else.

    Whew, your love of bad boys does have a limit! ;)

    And are you saying you don't know what Downton Abbey is? Iain Glenn plays a pretty rough nouveau rich dude on it, very very very different from Ser Jorah.

    Huge difference between bad boy and degenerate. ;)

    And I have never heard of Downtown Abbey. :confused:

    Interesting. I can't promise you'd love it, but you from what I can tell you like dramas with many storylines, wit, and some melodrama.

    Downton Abbey PBS Site

    Here is an SNL parody that sums it up in an American way. No real spoilers or anything.

    I've been re-watching the Blu-rays and noticed something in the opening credits (2nd time around), did you notice that in addition to the family sigils that are displayed as the hub of the "mechanical buildings" they are also next to the actors names as they are credited (and the production staff has their own sigils as well).

    The NY Times not so glowing review of the first 4 episodes of S2 (mild spoilers, but no plot giveaways):

    http://tv.nytimes.com/2012/03/30/arts/television/game-of-thrones-on-hbo.html?partner=rss&emc=rss

    I will say this. The main complain is that it's confusing and complicated and slow moving through the first 4 episodes. But the same could be said of S1. But the payoff for S1 was extraordinary. So I hold out hope that this will be the same for S2 and if it's as stated in the review, I will wade through those episodes and assume they are setting us up for something great.

    Tiassa - I didn't notice that until you mentioned it. I've been rewatching them on HBOGO and realized that the 4 main siglis are also around the Game of Thrones title at the end of the opening sequence.

    I think he's too modest. I don't think he's fully aware of how awesome he really is. I'm sure he's been put down his entire life.

    I hope so.

    One of those little people who was "big" for a while famously had a SPECTACULAR ego, vastly undeserved, so you never know. (Can't remember which...the Austin Powers guy, maybe?) Logic doesn't always play into it. But even if Dinklage does have a spectacular ego, at least he deserves it!

    Yeah, I think Jorah is hot, but then I'm old. The thing is, in the books he's not described as being hot at all (that's not a spoiler, is it?) so it seems like bad casting to me. :confused:
