Tonight's the Night!

Winter is coming to HBO... tonight!

I think we can be pretty sure GAME OF THRONES will be better than SPRINGTIME FOR HITLER, at least. Fortunately, this show comes from Benioff and Weiss, not Bialystock and Bloom.

We're pretty excited here. (Even though I've already seen tonight's episode).

And remember -- HBO is free this weekend on most cable systems throughout the US. So even if you don't normally get HBO, if you have cable the chances are excellent that you can at least see tonight's premiere.

(After which, of course, we hope you'll all be signing up for HBO).

More a little later. I have to get back to Kong.

I called and subscribed today before I realized that it was free this weekend and I didn't need the subscription until next week....

I had butterflies in my stomach earlier, but now it's more like a wasp nest!

I'm so excited!

This past week we switched to DirecTV and acquired HBO. Can't wait till tonight! I'm hoping I can get my husband hooked on the show and then he'll want to read the books.

Congratulations Mr. Martin! What a huge achievement!

Sadly I don't have even basic cable these days, but I'm eagerly waiting for when HBO puts out the DVD collection. I'm snapping that up opening day.

And now I can just picture Shatner screaming out "KOOOOOOOONG!" while you're still working. The monkey will fall!

Congrats, George. What a dream come true. :)
Apr. 17th, 2011 06:31 pm (UTC)
Congratulations to you and us :)

I've been onboard for the TV show since the first announcement, through casting puzzles and all, and I somewhat can't believe that we're finally there. But I already appreciate the show :)

Tomorrow night for some of us! Anticipation will make the taste even sweeter :)

I don;t know about you but...
I always thought Springtime for Hitler got a bad rap. It's still better than Cats. God, I hated Cats. (haha)

I don't have cable at all -- not even a hook up to the basic channels -- and I can't afford to pay an additional however much a month on top of our internet bill for HBO. Is the show going to be aired anywhere else, e.g. on HBO, Hulu, etc? I hate that I've followed this series for years and can't even watch the damn thing.
Apr. 17th, 2011 07:09 pm (UTC)
I've seen the behind the scenes and the sneak peak on Hulu so I'm assuming they will have the actual show. I hope.

Michael Jackson's "ahh-HOO!"
So looking forward to tonight!

By the way, Kong? Cat? Dog? Bird?

I cannot wait, Ser! I've quit cable forever and stream netflix through an Internet ready tv... one of the best home entertainment decisions I've ever made. I miss HBO, Skinemax, and Showtime as there's really no legal way to get these stations without signing up for cable's extortion racket. Luckily my parents live a couple miles away and get HBO.

But there's good news! i dont know if u've seen the advertisements for it (maybe someone here knows more) but ive been seeing a lot of Ads for HBO on demand NET PROGRAM (for 10 bucks). Sorta like netflix, but i'm assuming u get to watch the shows whenever u want. It might be something u wanna look into...

Winter may be coming but first we Party!
Apr. 17th, 2011 06:53 pm (UTC)
I'm glad to know that it's free this weekend. I was pouting this morning thinking I wasn't going to see the premier because I don't have HBO. I feel like a major nerd but I just can't help but love a good story. Thanks.
Apr. 17th, 2011 06:54 pm (UTC)
*sigh* Here in Spain we'll have to wait until May 9th for the spanish-dubbed premiere on Canal +

Counting down the days... and running out of nails to bite.

i just watched the "Poison" trailer and I know Lysa isn't fat like in the books but i instantly recognized her and i only saw her for a second but they did a really good job on casting her... no i don't usually judge on one line/scene but her tone, body language and inflection was purrrrfect.

I've also been thinking about Jaqen H'ghar but i will have to wait for next season to worry about that.

Super excited.

I'm sooo excited too!!
I've just turned on tv and I got a message from my TV provider that HBO will be free for the Game of Thrones premiere. I live in Poland and we have the premiere tomorrow.
I'm so happy it got Polish translation so fast... Thumbs up!!

I signed up last weekend, just to make sure I would be ready for my trip to Westeros. I cannot miss this series!

I'm so excited! This has been the best weekend ever!
Apr. 17th, 2011 07:31 pm (UTC)
Oh, you picked the perfect song for this, too.

So excited! Can't wait!

(And no love for Springtime for Hitler? I'm shocked. It was the bestest musical ever. ;-D)

Wish I got HBO, but cable/digital/satellite/whatever they're calling it these days is not really on the list of things I can afford. :( I'm sure it will be great, though, and I'll rent it right away when it comes out on DVD.

You really need to change that picture.

Someone wouldn't happen to know when those of us not in countries with HBO/Sky can expect a DVD release?

The offspring and I have been unable to concentrate on anything all day. I can't remember ever before wanting the weekend to be over so I could get to Sunday night. EVER.
Apr. 17th, 2011 10:39 pm (UTC)
Same; what a wasted weekend!

I got HBO just because of A Game of Thrones. I'm looking forward to watching the first episode tonight.
