Huge, Huge News

HBO has given the production order.

They will be filming the pilot episode of A GAME OF THRONES.

It's just the pilot so far. They'll need to see that before they decide whether to proceed with a full season's episodes. So let's all hope the pilot will kick serious ass.

It should. David Benioff and Dan Weiss did a terrific job with the script. And yes, all of you can relax, it's very faithful. Dan and David will be the executive producers for the pilot and (we hope) the eventual series.

More details when I have 'em. The news is very fresh. HBO just issued their own press release, which should be up on their website soon, if it's not there already.

Winter is coming to HBO. Hot damn.

Ah! This just literally took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes.

I am such a geek! But a very, very happy geek!

Better & Better
First the Phillies, then Obama, then this news... Wow. This year just can't get much better! Short of GRRM showing up at my door to offer me a part in it (I actually am an actor (part-time) of at least passable talent... ;-)

You have no idea how excited I am for this. I remember when you first made mention of the possibilities of it being an HBO series 2 years ago... can't wait! :)

Great expectations
It's so monstruously good to read these news!!! I think that "A game of thrones" will bring the biggest thing the television has ever enjoyed in the last... er... probably from the day they aired the first man's walk on the moon! Winter is coming!
