  1. What's new in this club
  2. The much I know about the TV Show is that R R Martin was not just a scriptwriter and producer, but also a creative consultant as well. I had no idea that he was neither a creator nor a director, so thanks for that clarification @Jack. I have not read the books yet, but I agree with you that reading them in order will help keep the storyline intact.
  3. George didn't write the Game Of Thrones TV show, it was written by David Benoiff and D.B. Weiss. RR Martin wrote 1 episode in each of the first 4 seasons, but then he completely stopped to focus more on writing the books. He did produce it, which means he had some creative authority to approve or disapprove ideas. As I understand it, the show tries to stay true to the books in most cases but some things are changed, either because it's better for TV or just because the writers had a different idea. Also, the last couple seasons passed Martin so while I'm sure he gave them a direction, they're the ones who decided what to do. Might be why the final season feels so drastically different than the rest. Anyway, books are 99.99% of the time gonna be better than the show or the movie. I like books being translated into tv series better, as you get a lot more screen time to fill it out. A movie, you get 2.5 hours tops usually. A TV show, even just a simple 10 episode one like Game Of Thrones is, you get about 10 hours to work with and you can fit so much more in. But even still, not everything makes it. Also, don't read them out of order. It's so easy to get them in order, don't mess up your story experience by jumping around randomly.
  4. II have come across these books before, and they are quite voluminous. Generally, a lot of what you read in a book may not all fit into a TV show. Overall, I think that George R. R. Martin did a fabulous job on screen and so the books should be thrilling!
  5. I'd read them. I didn't know there was a series of books called this. I'm going to have to go look now. Will you read them out of order if that is how you find them?
  6. What would you do if, after watching, you discovered that there was a whole set of books about the Game of Thrones TV Show? I have come across two or three volumes, and now I am thinking of starting. There is a high likelihood that the books are more detailed.
  7. Prequels rarely get me excited since it's not really about the same group of casts. I read that the book has a lot of content, so I bet we will only cover certain parts of it. I'm still thinking about which era I want to see adapted the most.
  8. Apparently, it's official, and it will be titled House of the Dragon. At least the good info is that they will still work with the author and original books, though it may not always produce a great result. Are you excited?
  9. Lag is such a terrible thing to ruin a game. It means the company under budgeted the amount of servers or infrastructure they would need to keep up with demand. What is especially sad about that is it is an issue only games that are on the brink of being successful run into it. Hopefully they can catch up before they lose their player base!
  10. So how do you like the game? I tried playing it again with my mobile phone this time. The lag made me uninstall it after a few minutes of waiting. I hope the game won't destroy the popularity of the show.
  11. I hadn't heard of this before but I just checked and saw what it is all about. When playing, you are the lord of your castle, and it is all about building a powerful kingdom while challenging for the Iron Throne. I am not much of a gamer now but this is worth trying out.
  12. I've seen a lot of these ads on the internet and I was curious about what the game is like. I played it for a week, but I lost interest in continuing to play this game. Anybody else played this game? How do you rate it?
  13. So basically this is like The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit's trilogies. I am not complaining as I'm only comparing GoT's storyline with these movies. I guess they will make a story on how the prominent families of the Seven Kingdoms came into power.
  14. Well I've just read that any spin-offs will NOT be post-Game of Thrones series. So no Arya expedition or stuff like that. Unless perhaps they go far enough into the future that all of our current set of characters are dead and part of the history, that'd be interesting. But more likely, we'll focus on distant past.
  15. I like a TV show that has a great ending and I would say that the GoT has a great ending although I wasn't expecting such ending. What is great about this show is that other TV shows and even a few movies talk about GoT in their scripts.
  16. I heard rumors that they will make a story on how the Mad King came into the throne. I hope they will make a story about how the Iron Throne was made.
  17. I am yet to watch the eighth season because there's a lot of catching up to do but all the same, I wouldn't want to be in George RR Martin's shoes because ending such a popular show isn't going to be easy. I would also love to see more of this TV show but at some point, it will have to come to an end anyway.
  18. I have heard that they're doing 2, although the subject matter of these spin-offs hasn't been announced yet, I don't think. I'd imagine 1 might focus on Arya's expedition after Game Of Thrones, that'd be fun. The other one certainly would be a prequel. Maybe they'll focus on The Mad King, or maybe they'll go further back than that. Who knows.
  19. Have you guys heard that HBO is developing a spinoff, a prequel more precisely? I am relieved that there is a continuation of this show as I like to see more of this TV program.
  20. I would be a very romantic ending if Jon and Daenerys die in battle after liberating the 7 kingdoms from the grip of Cersei. I have a hunch that the bastard of Robert Baratheon will sit on the iron throne at the end of the show.
  21. Jaime has to be more mind than physical skill cause he's gotta fight using his left hand now. But yea he mostly didn't do much but fight fight fight, but that's what most of them did. So clearly I was wrong, not that many notable characters died in the Long Night, but it was still impactful.
  22. Picture the character that would be the least likely to die because it would have to take the script into uncharted territory. That's the one I would like to see meet a timely demise.
  23. Many people are talking about the characters that will live after the show has finally ended. How about we discuss the characters whom we wanted to meet the god of death at the end of the show?
  24. I was surprised that Sam was still alive after the episode was finished because he fought while lying down. I was disappointed a bit with the Night King's generals because they did not do anything besides showing off their long white hair.
  25. I think you're right about that. Maybe it will come down to Cersei and Arya. I still think Cersei will keep the throne. I wish Theon hadn't died. I adore Davos, so I hope he hangs in there. Jaime didn't come across like the great strategic warrior he's supposed to be. I felt the same about Jon and Daenerys. I think Grey Worm will die next. He survived the battle, but just as soon as he thinks he can breathe, he'll be killed.
