Ok Phil, I caught last nights episode. What was it #4? I wasn't following it when it came to the Queen and her brother are they having an incestuoust affair?
I really loved the casting of Jason Momoa as the tribal king. God he's hot! :lol:
I'm off to find the book today.

Awesome posts, Philbert. Thanks! :grin:

I haven't read the books or watched it on TV yet, but now I want to! Although I may wait until I can get a whole season's worth to watch at once. Seems like a good idea for me in light of the complex and numerous characters and plot lines.

It's not really self-restraint on my part. Just don't seem to remember to get in front of the TV at the right time, and if I record something and don't watch it right away, DH gets all antsy to erase it. :roll:

I do plan to download the books though. I PDT_Love_04 my kindle, and no one bugs me to hurry up and read my downloads! :grin:

Jen, Phil can confirm or deny this, but apparently there are four big ass books, and everyone has been waiting eons for Book 5. Seven are planned?

I mentioned the books to my son and he said he read all of them. Rooted around on the bookshelves and found #4. Don't know where 1, 2, and 3 might have gone to, but I've downloaded #1. Haven't started reading it yet. Will probably begin on the long plane ride to NYC next weekend.
