The visuals are amazing and the show is good but god damn do the cliffhanger endings make me rage. I wish I had never started watching it and just remained ignorant until it comes out on DVD and I can watch them all at once.

Yeah I'm getting that feeling as well. Waiting a week between episodes is going to be the death of me.

I'm tempted to go buy the books to satiate myself.

Then again HBO isn't one to half *** things.

It's likely paying off...sounds like the show is really up there in popularity.

I've been downloading the episodes weekly...really enjoying it, but definitely going to have having to wait.

Despite the imp being a hit-or-miss character when it comes to "likeability", I feel bad for him...I think he's one of the few very honest characters on the show, even if he is a little sly in the way he acts.

Yeah he's somewhat of a sleezeball (though admittedly not as sleezy as others), but I do really like him. He's one of the characters that I really do like and hope the best for. I'd say he's the one Lannister I really want to live.

And I thoroughly enjoyed this last episode, as well. They do a great job of laying the tension on to keep me coming back.

I really love this show. All of the characters are being developed so well and their stories are very intriguing. The worst part is having to wait another week after each episode.

This is probably one of the best adaptations of anything I've ever seen. I love the books and was afraid that I would be disappointed if they didnt bring the characters to life in the way I imagined, but somehow they did it. Especially the Imp. He's my favorite character from the books and probably the most nuanced. The first book doesnt really show that as well though. He's definitely the character to watch in the inevitable second season.

It's better that the show is 7 episodes in, because now you can watch them all back to back. **** that week-long wait between episodes. It's horrible.

I watched some of this show last night for about 20 minutes and some girl fingerbanged another girl for a solid 10 minutes. It was awesome. Surprisingly clean shaven for the guilded ages though.

Otherwise the show seemed like it would be worth my time to sit back and watch the 7 episodes or so I missed.

Glad the imp was finally reintroduced. I felt like he was absent for an episode or two there.

He wasn't in episode 7, but he's a key character to the series so he'll be in it a lot.

Anyone else who has read the books know if they are kind of bleeding into book 2 plot elements early? Specifically, the way I remember it, Rob Stark and The Imp's arcs in the last episode don't happen in A Game of Thrones the book. It's been awhile though, so I could have got that wrong.
