Great 1st episode. Some minor changes from the book, but nothing too crazy.

Nice job touching on all the characters and the different story lines.

Excited about this but haven't re-subscribed to HBO yet due to an impending move. I've read the books a few times already but all the same I'm trying to avoid the slightest hint of spoilers.

I thought it was a pretty solid second season premiere/ refresher of whose who while at the same time introducing some new characters. I've read the series twice but am looking forward to see what changes they make this year.

I'm most curious about the ways in which the show differs from the books and how that will impact things going forward.

Last Sunday's episode was excellent, the best of the season. So far this season has been great, though not quite measuring up to last season, in my opinion. (I also think the first book is better than the second book.)

From here on out, though, it should get pretty exciting, as the second half of the second book has some awesome scenes. And the third book... oh boy!

Evidently ratings are high, too. Last Sunday's episode beat out Mad Men.

I'm happy with the way they've condensed without losing much.

Yeah it's been great. The rest of this season is all downhill. Can't wait for episode 7, Battle of the Blackwater.

I don't instant why they keep making the story less interesting than it was in the books. Lora's wearing Renly's armor was awesome, Tywin showing up to save the day is significantly less so.
