Summers span decades, winters can last a lifetime, and the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond.
Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men... all will play the 'Game of Thrones.'
A new original series based on George R.R. Martin's best-selling 'A Song of Ice and Fire' series. Winter is coming soon to Sky Atlantic HD.
Anyone else looking forward to this ?

SPOILER POLICIES FOR THIS THREAD
Please ensure that all specific plot details are spoilered before the UK airtime (currently Monday night, 9pm) in order to keep the topic safe for normal watchers. Once the episode has aired, feel free to discuss TV plot details freely but bear in mind this is a Book-discussion-free thread.
This is a TV-pace thread. There can be future plot/character speculation from people who haven't read the books and explanations of what has changed between the books and the series from those who have read the books, ONLY WHEN SUCH EXPLANATIONS DO NOT HINT AT FUTURE EVENTS BUT SIMPLY PUT THE TV INTERPRETATION FROM AN AIRED EPISODE IN CONTEXT.
If you wish to post about events that have happened ALREADY in the TV show and relate them to the books (for example, to explain a change in a certain scene), please write above the spoiler box exactly what kind of spoiler is within the box.
Examples of acceptable pre-spoiler box text: "Difference between book and TV series." "Future speculation (non-book reader)."
There should be no references to actual future events from the books in this thread. None. Never. No hints. Nothing.
If you post a book spoiler in this thread, you will be banned from the thread for a period of not less than one week.
Common sense, people. That's all it takes. It really isn't rocket science. Please be considerate of other forumites.
Please mark all spoilers very clearly as to their type, so that everyone will know what kind of text is within the box before they click on it.
(Tapatalk users, beware: Anything within a spoiler box will show up as normal text.)
