Think this deserves a thread of its own as I'm sure there are plenty of fans of the books out there.

Whats it about?

 

 

Game of Thrones is an upcoming American medieval fantasy television series created by David Benioff and Dan Weiss for HBO. The series, based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among noble families for control of the Iron Throne of Westeros.

I've never been too fussed about having Virgin rather than Sky, but lately I've just been seething. Sky Atlantic just looks awesome and this in particular looks really good. Gonna have to find a way to watch it I think.

Aye, I'll be watching this on the Monday/Tuesday off Atlantic like. The book is immense, looking forward to the adaptation. Not sure on Sean Bean though, just can't look past 'Angry Yorkshire Bloke' he plays in every film.

 

Goldeneye? Angry Yorkshire Bloke from Russia

LOTR? Angry Yorkshire Bloke from Middle Earth

When Saturday Comes? Angry Yorkshire Bloke from Yorkshire

:lol:

 

I used to actually like Sharpe.

 

The books are excellent. Series is ok, but watered down a lot for the lady viewers eyeing up Sean Bean.

 

Interesting Sharpe fact for you, in the first books the character Sharpe was from London and there was no mention of Yorkshire at all. When Sean Bean was cast, and unable to portray a Londoner in any sort of convincing style, he decided to re-write the first couple to include Sharpe running away from his London orphanage as an 11/12 year old and working on a farm in Yorkshire till he joined the army (which he did as an alternative to going to prison).

 

I know, you didn't want to know that, but now you do.  :razz:
