The wait is almost over. 2 Days, 11 hours, and 18 minutes until the season premiere of George R.R. Martin’s HBO series Game of Thrones. My hands are tingling, I’m giddy… so excited I can barely hold a thought that doesn’t pertain to how excited I am. I don’t think I’ve been this anxious about a series since the premiere of Trueblood (Season 4 begins June 26, 2011, and is loosely based on Charlaine Harris' book 4, Dead to the World).
So, my fellow George R.R. Martin fans--hang on. The dragons are coming.
I hope I'll be able to get it online. I'm excited to see what they do with it. I liked the preview, it looked very dark.ReplyDelete
I hope you get to watch so I have someone to chat with after each episode:)ReplyDelete
Have you ever read the books, it's fantastic. A wonderful example of world building. He also uses multiple POV's, transitioning between character for each chapter. He always concludes each chapter with a cliffhanger.
Yes, I believe you and I were debating this on AQ. I'm still pissed about Arya? Is that her name? She was my fav and then she wakes up f-ing blind!? AND he doesn't bother to tell us anything else. And the way he only told half of the character's stories in the last book, grrr.ReplyDelete
I'm just not a fan of killing characters, and he keeps knocking them off. It makes me want to write him disapproving fan mail, but as you say, he is fantastic at world building.
Oh right, I remember that conversation, duh. BBC posted that topic.ReplyDelete
So here's my fear--that Arya won't be in Dance with Dragons. I hope I'm wrong. I'd hate to have to wait another six years to find out what happens to my favorite character.
I would be so pissed. Don't even joke about something like that!ReplyDelete
I know! I just got to watch the first 14 minutes! And can anybody say: More?ReplyDelete
OMG, a spyware virus thingy tried to download onto my computer when I clicked on a link to watch the first 14 minutes.ReplyDelete
I canceled and closed everything so fast I can't tell you which link I'd clicked on, so if anyone tries to watch make sure it's an approved site.
LOL, I'm so computer savvy. I know all the tech lingo--NOT!ReplyDelete
