This is the most sweetest series i'hv watched, the characters are the best! Especially Tyrion Lannister and Arya Stark.

Arrrggg!!! How many times will I have watched the first two seasons by March??? I have to say that this series has been the finest screen adaptations of a book series that I can think of-- the casting has been brilliant - it's like they stepped out of the pages of the books. That's the highest compliment I can bestow on it. Sean Bean has sure been getting a work lately, hasn't he?

I like the show quite a bit myself but I would have to say my favorite character in the show would be Tyrion Lannister. He is the only Lannister I like, but if he was not in it I think I would like this show significantly less. As far as the whole endless winter and people not being able to survive in it, there are people who live like that here on our planet to this day. Like the Eskimos, their winter is even more harsh than what's North of the wall.

I am addicted to the series; wishing I wasn't; just too many POV characters. The plausibility factor also gets in the way too; endless winter in the North for one; really? How does one fodder his live stock let alone feed his family?
As soon as you begin to like a character they get killed off. That's where I am a bit old fashioned I guess; raised on heroic epics and such. Where the good eventually triumphs over the bad guys.Killing Ned Stark and the fall of Winterfell made this a bad addiction
