Do somebody know the series adaption of the books written by George R. R. Martin? Or have already seen it? I can´t wait until november to see it, too. Look at the cast - perhaps Summer gets a roll in the future?
I don't watch it personally but i follow the news online (i have to do it to bring informations to the wiki anyway)µ.
And the show has Peter Dinklage and Lena Heydey, who are very special for us Summer Glau fans because they have played with her. It's funny how this kind of things creates affinities. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
I tried to watch the series. I thought Peter Dinklage was putting on an awesome performance. The production quality was excellent, the writing was good, the acting superb, even by the children, especially the one playing the youngest Stark girl. Unfortunately, the show was just not to my liking. It revels in immorality and greed for power. Characters killing off others more worthy to the throne while also proving why they are incapable of having it themselves. The program can be entertaining, but I found its glorification of depravity and greed as the only means of achieving power to be a very bad message. I think we see that enough in the real world. I'll give you this, its got one awesome opening credit score and video. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Malfurion, if you want to give some news or your impressions on the episode of GOT you saw, feel free to do it on this thread. The forum, contrarily to the News page of the Summer Glau Wiki is filled primarily by the members like you and me. The fact that the active members (those who post messages) don't watch GoT doesn't mean that the lurkers (those who visit the Wiki without posting) are not interested. Between 400 - 500 internet users from all over the world take the time to visit The Summer Glau Wiki, i'm sure that some of them watch the show. And even on a personal level, it can be valuable for you to give your point of view and practice English without any pressure. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube

I don't know the story (other than news i see online) and this video don't tells me what it's about exactly : different cities engaged in the battle ? Looks like an ads for Simcity.
Or ads for the French company in charge of nuclear plants : Areva (2004)
More seriously, i have read that the writers are very faithful to the book; Malfarion, maybe you can you tell us if the books contains so much violenec and depravity. I'm kinda like Russ on that domain, this is also not my kind of things. I've been raised with american westerns where the good guy fights against the evil avengers brothers and then earns the heart of the pretty girl (sibling of the evil brothers preferably) and the only sex was sometimes a kiss You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
Mhm, ok. The books by George R. R. Martin are a mix between low fantasy (heroic fantasy) and high fantasy (epic fantasy). I read the books and think the focus is on the heroic fantasy. This is sometimes hard to read because it include strong violence ( murder, torture, rapes). The author creates a very dark, sort of backward world. No perfect "good guy" who never fails. Instead the characters who appear are often cynical and had a brutal worldview sometimes. The main problem to me in the first time was on the one hand G. R. R. Martin handling the different characters. I mean no glorious hero, but you concentrate on some individuals, you like (or hate) them, in a way you empathize with them and suddenly... they die. At some parts of the books i hate G. R. R. Martin, but i read more because the story catches me. On the other hand there are so many characters. You lost the general view sometimes because you do not know: Who will survive? Who will do the right? Will there be some kind of justice in the end? I look forward to watch the hole season - the reviews sounds quite good. Shyness and Summer met one day, Shyness had to speak first.
lol i had written a long post...then firefox crushed and is a so late in night hour, that i cannot start over again. so let just say i agreed about the books of Martins are good but dispersing and that the series is goooood. i just love peter as tyrion, but find Leena a bad Cersey, since she [as always] has the "sarah connor enraged/shy face" and to me she isnt fit to make that role. cersey in the book was a charming, lustfull, admirable lady. in the films she is sarah connor with a blonde wig. i'm sure she is simpli searching around about skynet plans, so she is a bit nervous....isnt a good choice for that part. The actor for Khal Drogo is..is...is.......aw...i'm just short of words. Awesome is not enought. i liked khal drogo on the book, but THIS khal drogo is the best actor choice i ever seen in my life! I also like the little "Arya Stark" she is very very interesting, as person and little actress, full of art in my guess. But, aside Drogo, that is my God-in-Earth ... the best character in the series, to me is....the Swordmaster! I am Syrio Forel, first Swordman of Bravoos and you..will talk to me with more respect! toooooooooooooooo gooood! My third character is well...say...Aragorn ^^ Ned Stark. but is a Tie with his Jhon Snow son ^^ "This isn't the first time we've done this..." Cameron

I am very glad that Peter Dinklage got an Emmy for his work on GOT.
I said the following last Thursday on the red wiki. "After a recent conversation on Twitter, I felt compelled to finish watching the first season of GOT. The last episode I watched was episode 6 so I skimmed thru it then watched thoroughly the last 4 episodes of season 1. I found the final 4 episodes more enjoyable than the previous 6. I could say that episodes 1 - 6 were the setup for the last 4.
Lena Headey is going to attend Throne Con, presented by Starfury and held on 10-12 February 2012 at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel.
THRONE CON is a 3 day celebration of the TV series GAME OF THRONES, and other fantasy shows such as LEGEND OF THE SEEKER, MERLIN and SPARTACUS. Being held on 10-12 February 2012 at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel.
Peter Dinklage has been awesome in this series, he pulled off the role so well it you didn't feel pity for him since he was a dwarf and you didn't outright hate him for being a prick, he balanced everything so well, definately the funniest character too. Not sure which side of the fence he will end up on he actually seems like his character is a good guy that is hanging with the bad ones but I don't think I could have watched the series so far without his performance.

I forgot about this thread. I need to add that a while back I watched the remaining 4 episodes of season 1. They weres amazing! The last 4 episodes of GOT were better than the first 6 episodes. Peter Dinklage is amazing. I completely agree with Chris on his character. Outside of him the only characters I find worthwhile in following is the youngest Stark girl and John Snow. I'm actually looking forward to season 2. I've never been much of a fan of fantasy stories, but this is more like historical fiction with fantasy elements. Without those fantasy elements, GOT is like a story from medieval Europe. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
