say what you think about this amazing serie.



I watched the serie 2 Times, and read the book 1, and I'm finishing the second book waiting for the second season. How about you?
My favorite character was Eddard Stark.
I really hate the lannisters, but the worst is Joffrey, beacuse he killed Eddard Stark


Do you watched the TV serie or read the books?

Who is your favorite character?
what is you favorite scene?
who you hate more?

I also liked Eddard Stark best. I'm hoping another character will rise to take his place next season. I haven't read the books, so I don't know what will happen yet.

Side note: You might want to put "Spoilers" in the title of this thread if you're going to include them in the first post.

YES! LOVE!

I've read all the books that have been released so far. Its been my favourite series ever for a long time now. Even my username is taken from the series (A song of Ice and Fire). Alayaya is an incredibly minor character (she hardly even counts as a character at all really) but I've always loved the name.

My favourite characters are Jon and Tyrion. I also love Arya and Bran and

My least favourite characters are Lysa Aryn, Catelyn Stark, and Cersei

alayaya: I saw your name around before and thought that was chosen from the book. :)

I started reading about the series several months before it came on and I thought it looked very good, so I read the first book. LOVED it and just had to read the others! I'm now on the 5th...which I'm putting off reading, because I don't want to be in the position where I am waiting for the 6th...haha. Plus, it's just not starting off all that exciting so far, and I've heard that once it begins to really pick up, it ends. :( Still, I will need to make that judgement for myself. I also heard the 4th book wasn't that great, but to me it was my favourite, after the 3rd.

I know I should hate Cersei but I don't, she's probably my favourite character. Not that I'm rooting for her by any stretch of the imagination, but I LOVE how paranoid and damaged she is. All she does, she does for the survival of her family/self/children. She just goes about it so deviously and mercilessly. That's not very obvious in the show yet... the 4th book is what made me fall for her (and Jamie too). But I guess I should pretend I've only seen the first season of the show, or else I'll wind up spoiling things....since my other favourite characters are Brienne of Tarth, and Davos Seaworth, both of whom will be in season 2.

But as far as the show's characters so far: I love Bran, (in the book too), Arya, and Eddard. Least favourites: Jon (Sorry...! He just sort of annoys me a bit...)

I do agree with you about Cercei being a really interesting character. She is just SO frustrating.... I think The Hound is another really interesting character. He comes accross as cruel and horrible, but he has a decent side too.

You know who else I like? Margaery Tyrell. I'm really excited to see how the show approaches her character next season. I also LOVE her grandmother Olenna Redwyne.

Yeah, The Hound is awesome.

Another favourite: Aeron Greyjoy. Adored his chapters in the 4th book. I love the whole concept of the drowned men, etc.

I said some of this in the other GOT thread, so sorry to repeat myself. I haven't read any of the books, only watched the series, so don't know how the characters differ between the two. My favorites from the beginning were Arya and Tyrion - Arya because of her fighting spirit, Tyrion because he's a survivor and funny. Then as the series went along I became smitten with Ser Jorah Mormont .
I understand why there has to be a character like Eddard Stark, but I didn't like him very much. He kind of stupidly leads his family into danger and stupidly tries to expose the fact that Joffrey isn't what's-his-name's son, instead of using his head and chilling out. At first my most hateds were Joffrey and Viserys, but by the end it was Petyr Baelish.

I just watched the entire first series and the two episodes that are out for season two. I really enjoyed them and now I have to wait till Sunday. I don't have hbo so I'll have to wait till it gets on the internet.
Hated Characters- Cersei, Joffrey, Jamie
Favorites- Arya Stark, Jon Snow, Ned Stark, Tyrion (even though he is a Lannister he thinks before he acts and hes funny)
I put the first book on hold for my library should be arriving soon.
I heard that the show got renewed for a third season that is suppose to cover the first half of the third book.

I think it might be fun to have a copy of your decapitated head on a spike in Game of Thrones, but I guess George Bush isn't a fan.

I'm OBSESSED with the series, to say it lightly. I just made an Emilia Clarke (the actress who plays Daenerys Targaryen) Sim in The Sims 3 actually! Will be sharing it in the short future. :)

I am just terribly, terribly shallow. Kit Harrington is a fox (when he is not dressed like a friggin hipster, which is unfortunately seldom, but true love is all about changing someone to be more like you want them to be. I will make him harder, faster, stronger, and look less like Twatty McHipsterface).

All these friends of mine who go for the rough and responsible types like Eddard, good for them. :king:

I'd go for Tyrion Lannister, personally. Sure, he may not be the best to look at, but I'd first get to off that dumbass Shae by stabbing her in her stupid face, I'd want for nothing, and I'd always be entertained.

kiwi_tea
18th Jun 2012, 2:56 PM
Oh. Tyrion is definitely another guy I'd marry, as a character he runs the show. Though Shae is pretty sweet, imho, just not overly interesting. Jon Snow would just be the brooding, vulnerable, ridiculous kid I was having an incredibly hot affair with. *check IMDB* Kit Harington is two years younger than me. Good. I get to continue calling him a ridiculous kid... ...*just* Anyhow, we know it would all end in tears.

In the first season I didn't like Jon Snow that much because, although gorgeous, he always had that sad beaten look in his eyes. But in the second season I started to appreciate him more - a kind person who tries to do what's right.
A character I liked was Jaquen H'Ghar and it freaked me out when he changed and said that Jaquen was dead because that actor was hot and now he's gone.

Eeewww.... Jon Snow? But... Why?!

^ On a superficial level, his actor grates on me. Kitt Harrington has a perpetual dumb look on his face. His mouth is always open for some reason, and I hate his wispy mustache. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I suppose... but you guys have terrible tastes.


Jon Snow is one of the most boring characters on the show and in the book. He's your typical male fantasy lead-- the guy version of a "Mary Sue". Dull. Brooding. Not much of a personality. His story arc is somewhat interesting, but the character falls flat.



Oh, and George RR Martin writes some of the creepiest sex scenes ever :wtf:
One of her nipples found its way between his lips. It was pink and hard and when he sucked on it her milk filled his mouth, mingling with the taste of rum, and he had never tasted anything so fine and sweet and good.

I remember reading through excerpts from his other books, "The Pear-Shaped Man" and "Meathouse"... and it was some of the most disturbing shit I've ever seen. Can't believe I lost the link.


Anyway, here are awesome .gifs to offset the terribleness:

Anyone interested in seeing my Emilia Clarke/Daenerys Targaryen Sim?! Well too bad I'm posting her anyway!
I'm quite proud tbh this is my first "look-a-like" Sim based off anyone!

Halfway through A Storm of Swords! :)

http://i1255.photobucket.com/albums/hh636/Zombnom/Emiliacomparison.png

Btw: I agree, I loathe reading through Jon Snow's POV in the book, it's just like "OMG WILDLINGS! Ghost is hunting. I'm a man of da Night's Watch." perhaps he becomes more interesting after where I am in the book though.

Basing it off halfway through the third book how I feel about the characters:
Characters I adore: Daenerys Targaryen , Arya Stark, Tyrion Lannister (duh) and pity adore for Sansa, only because the actress who plays her made her tolerable.
Dislike: Joffrey Baratheon (duh x 2), Jon Snow (tbh Kit without facial hair is a BABE), and Davos.
Fave Scene: Book: Daenerys obtaining the Unsullied. TV series: Daenerys and Khal Drogo in The House of the Undying

Eeee!!! Post back after you get through all the juicy bits :lovestruc


^I first read the books when I was 15 or so, and I had loved Dany back then.
But now in retrospect, I greatly dislike her character. She has massive entitlement issues, and comes off as an empty-headed brat.

Oh, and just wait until book five when you get to ~*~*Daario*~*~
You'll probably be sick of her then D:<

Can do! :) How I see it every single character in the ASOIAF series has massive entitlement issues haha! I just love the crap out of her character, I can see why some people dislike her though.
I actually just got past the part when she first encounters him! I hope he won't make me hate her! D: !!

I got some shots of Jaime and Cersei. They don't look much like the show characters hah.

This is so sweet. Well perhaps not like the show's characters, but having read the books, they are ok with me.

I've read all the GoT books out so far. My favourite characters are Arya, Tyrion(that man makes me laugh all the time), Jaime(I loathed him in the first book, but he is becoming bearable), and Brienne of Tarth.

I hate Lysa Arryn, Catelyn(Errrghhh), Jon(just a bit) and Sansa(Can't she just get some more nerves???)

I've read all the books (and am on my second re-read now - seriously, you pick something new up every time), and keep rewatching the TV show with my family members as they start picking it up one by one. It's contagious, I'm afraid. ;)

But yeah...favourite character for me is Theon Greyjoy. Sorry, I'm not sorry. He's a complete and utter herpaderp jerk who fails at life, but I genuinely feel sympathetic towards him and he really just needs a break. And by break I mean someone should kill him quickly and cleanly so nothing else can happen to him, and he can't mess anything else up.

ANYWAY.

Other favourites are Bran, Cersei, Jaime, Jorah, Asha/Yara and Tyrion. Arya, Jon, Robb and Dany I used to love but...eh...they wore off on me eventually.

I'm disappointed too! D: I keep checking in but nothing new seems to have happened! I keep attempting to make the characters too, based off a blend of how I pictured them from book descriptions and what their actors look like (The Greyjoys and the Starks need major tweaking for me. MAJOR.) but they just keep coming out looking so scary I have to delete them before they some how wind up in my game and terrorise me.

I'm slowly reading the books, I downloaded the full set as a single book, onto my ipad, but I keep spending my reading time, on Sim sites lol. That will teach me to go digital. I'm about 1/2 way though.

I've watched all of season 1. Tyrion is probably my favorite character. His sarcasm is priceless. 2nd would be Arya.

Terrific show. Looking forward to the season premiere tomorrow though, for me, it's a double edge sword. The Walking Dead is ending for the season and GOT is starting.

Each character brings something to the table in this series whether you love them or love to hate them. They all seem tailor made for their roles and it's hard for me to ever imagine them being someone else. Cersei, Sansa and Joffrey drive me insane and that is a testament to the actors doing a fantastic job of pulling that off. I really like Arya, Jon, Bran, Daenerys, Tyrion and even Jaime.

I read the first book, but that was all. I have read recaps of the others online so I'm a bit spoiled. ;)

The first season is difficult for me to watch over simply because of what Joffrey and his mother did about the wolf and it was a shame to see Eddard exit so early, but I knew it was coming. Regardless, it was still amazing.

Can't wait till tomorrow!

I've just started watching it, so it'll take some time until I'm up to date, but I love this show so much, it's not even healthy anymore. My favourites are Jon, Tyrion, Khal Drogo (I know he dies), Cersei, Arya and Daenerys. Haven't read the books and I'm not planning to, I wouldn't have the patience to read such long books.

When the credits rolled, I was surprised an hour had gone by.

I did the same thing - it went so fast, I was just really getting into it.

I so much want Tyrion to get away from his family. I feel bad for him. His sister, father and nephew just walk all over him. I love it when he snaps back with a sarcastic comment but you could see the hurt all over his face after speaking with his father last night. There just seems to be no pleasing them - at least not where he is concerned.

I loved seeing Daenerys and her dragons and, of course, I adore Ser Jorah. Seeing him is always a pleasure.

Can't wait to see Jaime again. He such a jerk, it's fun watching his character.

Always look forward to this show week after week.

Re Tyrion: Tywin said that Tyrion killed his mother when he was born, then 5 seconds later he said something like 'if you are my son.' So within a minute he blamed Tyrion that his wife was dead and then implied that said wife was an adulteress. Tywin isn't going to win the logic prize.
I read somewhere that Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey have a close relationship on the set, so I try to remember that when she's trying to kill him in the story.
I'm looking forward to seeing the Jaime storyline again - he's my favorite psychopath (or is he a nihilist?) I wonder how Brienne can possibly accomplish the exchange of prisoners.

Have you watched the TV series or read the books? Only the tv series.
Who is your favorite character? there are a lot of awesome characters but I'm gonna have to go with the obvious; Tyrion Lannister <3 Arya Stark too.
what is you favorite scene? Erm... I've got the new series set to record but not watched and last season was far too far away to remember, lol. I did love the final scenes of last season for the pure WTF?! factor.
who you hate more? Again, probably going with the crowd here but Joffrey, Cersei, Petyr Baelish... oh the list goes on. Also Sansa Stark. Sure, I was starting to feel sorry for her for a while there but I just can't stand her!

Today I was in the park and I went to check something online and I was given the choice to connect to a network called, "Winter is coming". My first thought was, "but it's April...and we live in Nevada with year round sunshine?!"... then the penny dropped :lol:

If you're a GOT fan, you might want to check out the youtube parody "School of Thrones". It's set in high school, based on who will be Prom King... kinda cute.

My favorite is Arya cuz when everything goes to hell, she just dusts herself off and keeps on truckin. Not necessarily in the right direction, but she keeps going.
Least favorite is Catelyn cuz she knows EVERYTHING.... and it's all wrong. Every decision she has insisted on winds up screwing everyone around her.

I think my favorite aspect of the books is that you eventually get the backstory for the characters and some of the ones I despised at first, I now find sympathetic. Cersei, Jamie, Samwell, and the Hound are prime examples. I still want to slap Sansa silly though. And Jon truly does know nothing.
