So, I've heard about this show, but not seen a minute, and the hype makes me reticent.  But if I'm bored on a Friday night and have nothing queued up, is it worth a look?

Dude, it is an excuse for all sorts of Trauma (For the Guys!) and Drama (For the Girls!) in a midaevil setting.

Another Galactica of sorts........

The last two episodes of South Park spoofed Game of Thrones.  Pretty funny stuff.

Season 4 just started up.  Daenerys' pets are growing like weeds!  She must be feeding them high-grade Purina Dragonchow.

Glad to see it back on for another season. It's one of the very few things that I watch  on the the TV.

I started watching it because I had read the books and got hooked.

Apparently the show is going to start to diverge from the books soon.

It already has I think.  Yeah, the final scene in this one was impressive.  That was some gnarly drink with serious hangover factor!

If a thing can breathe fire, chemically or otherwise, you figure its going through a lot of energy to do so.  I imagine it will have one hell of a metabolism to begin with.

Discover channel did a "Full possible Evolution" work up of the dragons.  They postulated that dragons would have developed a gut that developed a lot of gas, like cows (oh the irony) for use in there flaming breath.  That really wouldn't take all that much energy.  Flying....yeah there is where the need for a certain amount of magic enters into the mix.........

Loved Tyrion's speech a couple of episodes ago. So full of sarcasm and full biting statements.

I started watching it.  I'm two or three episodes in and I can't keep track of the characters.  I must be getting old.  Who is this guy again?  Where are there?  Oh wait.. wasn't he dead last time?

Maybe not being to watch in single sittings is interrupting my brain.  Maybe just old.
