Where are they filming this, anyway?
I imagine there must be a whole buncha people drooling at the chance to visit the set.
Yay for Tourism.

Aside from who plays Stannis, we get more main characters in book 2, so yeah, i don't think they are going to save money on casting.
Great season and a great finale. John and the Night's Watch riding out up North of the wall to meet the threat of what ever is out there(the white walkers) was the best part for me. I find John's story to really be the best of the show, mainly because I like the fantasy elements more then the medieval politics. Dany's story is also pretty good to, but it doesn't have the danger uncertainty that Robb's has. I mean, she now has 3 pet dragons, she is going to be more badass then Drogo was.
This also gives me a idea. Winter is coming, the White walkers have awoken after 8,000 years, they more then likely are going to attack and maybe even break through the wall, their only weakness is fire, Dany is going to want to invade Westeros and take it back with her dragons, who's main attack is fire, and John has a questionable parentage that Ned couldn't tell anyone. I'm starting to like how all of this may connect.
The rest of the show has also gotten better as well. I can't wait to see Joffrey's face when he finds out his favorite uncle is now his Hand and will be calling the shots. Waiter, more backslapping please.
The Night's Watch oath wins on account of being a real oath, as opposed to the GL oath, which is a silly ego booster rhyme that includes a line that's impossible to uphold.
Fantastic show. Comparable to "Rome", which I loved, IMHO.
Now my question is, do I wait till next year for Season 2 to see what happens and enjoy the story unfolding? Or do I read the books in the meantime to find out and have a different experience watching the show?
BTW, I had no problem understanding the faint battle from Robb, which he used to capture Jamie. It was set up well with the scout and when we see him with Jamie after his men "lost" the battle, it is clear what he did. He eve says he sacrificed 2000 men.
OMT. Joffrey really, really has to die a horrible death.

Or barring that, it's been suggested elsewhere that if the HBO series catches up with Martin and is still going strong, Martin will give them the "cliff's notes version" of what's supposed to happen in whichever books haven't been published yet and help them fill in the rest (as he does some of the script writing on the show). It'd be rather bizarre to see the finale of things on-screen before they're in-print, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if this is an eventuality that was discussed prior to HBO buying the rights to the books. Heck, maybe they've got those Cliff's notes already.
