What is with the eyebrows in this thing? They didn't dye Sansa's either.

Anyway, this was amazing to see - so many characters I didn't see before: Gendry, Petyr, The Hound.

One major point though.. could you or have you published, like, a pronounciation guide to the names or something? After many of us realized we'd been pronouncing Baratheon wrong last week, my husband and I and I'm sure many others found at least 4 more names we'd been mispronouncing this week! :( Now I'm questioning basically everything.

Viserys: always thought accent was on first syllable, not second.
Targaryen: TAR-gar-yen instead of tar-GA-ree-en
Cersei: SIR-see instead of SIR-say
Catelyn: obviously like the common spelling of Caitlin though I did make a joke to my husband after learning about buh-RATH-ee-un (instead of bara-THEE-un) "Ha, Caitlin is probably CAT-eh-lyn or something..." lol.

I'm most concerned I'm mispronouncing Petyr. Now I'm guessing it's not Peter but probably PEH-teer or something. :( And I cannot even imagine what I'm doing to the names of the Krackens in future books.............. help us!!!!

He answered this question at days of ice and fire. He basically said that he doesn't care how people pronounce the names. He did give a few examples of how he pronounces the names but I think those were mostly said in this clip.

Okay, people. If GRRM will go as far as setting up an entire (awesome looking) HBO production, just to get you excited enough about something to get off his ass about the next book, I think it's time we cut the guy a little slack.

Seriously though. It looks freaking great!

This does look fantastic.

I've found other books with which to entertain myself while I wait for his next one. And soon I'll have a baby to keep myself busy. Note that I did not actually make a baby for the sole purpose of something to do while I wait for ADWD.

Cool
Cool. This. Looks. Great!!! Just awesome. My only anoying little bit of fan wisdom if you will be so kind to indulge it here is to say that I personally wish they would darken the entire show. I mean in terms of the mood in general that you get from dark colours and a sark pallette. Set the lighting down eveywhere. I don't know much about these things but as a viewer I'm thinking about the kind of mood you get when you watch Sleepy Hollow, or even the latest Harry Potter and the Deathly Halllows. This is how the "feel" of the books come across. Thats how I would picture the series on screen. Dark and gritty, like a cloudy day in North Ireland. The only sunny parts I ever felt in the books were the parts with Dorne involved.

Wow, someday, I want to own some of those props and costumes.

And the show looks quite nice too.

The Others
I can't wait to see what the Others look like. Or better yet, I can't wait until they pass across the screen in a flash while my mind conjures up the most dreadful things it can imagine. It has been said that scary things best wear their mythic nature when hidden in the shadows...

This was really awesome XD

And I see what you did thar ;) *won't comment about it 'cause it's spoilers, but the comment didn't go unnoticed XD*

March that is? So far away. XD

As for names pronunciation, since I'm french, I mispronunce everything anyway *not feeling too concerned XD*. They changed the last names here :( It's so annoying when I want to talk about ASOIAF with my US friends :(

I noticed you managed to say Ned Stark is the center of the series with a straight face minus a small pause. Well done, though I think I have a tell for you if we ever play poker. (Sorry if you can't reveal this comment because that says too much.)

Every time I watch something for this show I get more stoked!

YAY !
I just can't wait anymore !
That was a little taste of heaven... I'm loving Boardwalk Empire, but I'm pretty sure it will be nothing compared to A Game of Thrones !

Wonderful treasures from this:
` Arya leaping up and hugging Jon
` Arya drawing Needle from her chest in King's Landing at 9:47
` Dany running up to her Drogo where he sits with his huge chest wound from Khal Ogo at 00:20
` Dany touching one of her dragon eggs at 09:08
` Dany watching the sunset over the sea with her dress blowing in the wind at 9:18 is very powerful as well, very Luke watching the binary sunset
` And of course, the guilty pleasures of "The wiser answer is 'no', my lord,", Varys closing the door, the giant Targaryen dragon skull props, and the Dog himself standing there holding his doghelm in arm, long hair blowing over his half-burned face.

Blow-away-bad@ss, sir.

Arya and Dany scenes!? That's IT!? ;)

How about the Old Nan narration at the end!? OMG, goosebumps!

I absolutely can not wait! This has me salivating all over my keys in anticipation. I am also a little confused now, because I've been saying the names wrong too! (except for Daenerys because Khal Drogo speaks it phonetically, and because that's one you said at the Nashville signing for Feast)

This version has 2 minutes of extra footage. Worth it for the Tyrion/Jon exchange, as well as a brief Dany/Jorah dialogue and some brief shots of Arya with Needle and the wolves.

I hope it comes out here in Australia as soon as it's released in the states. I really don't want to wait for the DVD.

I'm so damn excited!

P.s. Do you think they'll make Dany's eyes purple in post-production? If not, what would be the reasons against this?

The eyes have been discussed a lot over on Winter is Coming but it seems like the most likely explanation is it just didn't look good on camera.
