ill watch on dvd sometime as i dont get HBO. The books are some of the best fantasy by far. The actual fantasy is quite subdued and the story is more political intrigue. Its a story of the Starks, Lannisters and Baratheon set against the backdrop of the Night Watch and the threat of the mythical "Others" that may or not be threatening the realm. My only complaint is while George Martin, the author, is spending time on this tv series he wont get the 5th book in the series finished, its been some 5 yrs now since the last book came out. Prolific this guy is not.

Game of Thrones Quotes

Tyrion: Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
Jon: What the hell do you know about being a bastard?
Tyrion: All dwarfs are bastards in their father's eyes.

I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you are safe and happy, and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. And you will know the debt is paid.

Tyrion Lannister
