    A tiny peak at the Red Viper is all I needed to get excited.

    I see they have Conan Stevens (from season 1) playing The Mountain again. I am more excited for this season than ever before, probably because of how amazing #3 was.

    Where did you hear that? It's widely reported that WSM competitor, Hafthor Bjornsson is the new Gregor Clegane. <a class="postlink" href="http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Season_4" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Season_4</a>

    6'9", 397 lbs. Not as tall as the other actors who played him but certainly more muscular.

    Im interested in where Theons story will go. Dude has no wiener now and that has to effect his squirmy ambitions. April is way too far off right now.

    Now is probably a good time to start rereading ASoS. It's been so long since I've read it that I can only remember the main events but not the behind the scenes stuff.

    For those of you who haven't read it and are really anxious for the season to start (in 3 months), there are going to be at least 2 major events that happen this season.

    There could be a red wedding in every episode, but as long as Joffrey eats it, I don't care what happens.

    That little fucker needs to go, I see the actor who plays him not working much after the show ends because of how universally his character is hated, which is a testament to his acting but also unfortunate because he should be allowed to make a living afterwards.

    And as long as they all slap their penises on his face before he goes.



    I am still waiting out to read the book after the season as to not spoil the show.

    As someone who read the book first, I'd be surprised if you can get through the book after watching the show. They really hit all the major points in the show and mostly leave out a ton of geography and history stuff I'm not 100% sure matters yet. You're going to be pretty bored reading the books. Except for the 2nd one, because it makes Tyrion look cooler.

    No they are much deeper and a lot of the themes that are implied in the show really get fleshed out in the book. I mean speaking of the first two only. It also makes it easier to tie things together they couldn't expand upon due to time and budget constraints in the show. One example I remember is how much more they delved into Catelyn Stark resentment of John Snowe in the first book.

    Hey man, if you're getting something more out of it? Great. I'd just hear most people get bored and don't make it.

    Personally, I've found it a bit easier to follow since reading the books.

    Really? Everyone I know that started reading the books after the first season tore through them.

    I won't read the books until the show is over. I enjoy the show enough and it's countless surprises and I've NEVER seen a book-to-screen adaptation that has such a universal acclaim from the book fans. I don't think I've talked to a single person who has read A Song Of Ice And Fire and not loved the show as well.

    After the first season I went and bought the first 2 books and I couldn't make it through 1/4 of the first book, I am an avid reader of fiction but those books are just not my thing.

    The first season and the first book are more 1:1 than anything after I think. The stuff that is important in book 1, gets repeated a lot in books 2 and 3. But I think book 2 and season two are the biggest differences so far. Because there is just so much more to what Tyrion does.
