    Still waiting on A Dance with Dragons. Since it's HBO I have hope they'll stay true to the book.

    Fuck-gawd-fucking-damnit!

    I read the title and thought "The book is out! It's out! Finally out!!"

    What a fucking let down!

    I honestly don't think it is that great of an idea to start shooting movies while the author maintains his head stuck up his ass, giving talks about the wonderful work he hasn't finished. But that's just me.

    I figured this was a series based on the books not a movie, since its HBO. I guess I thought wrong.

    As far as everything i've heard about this particular project suggests that you are correct. I'm not exactly certain how they plan on doing it(i.e. will one season be one book?) but it's good to see that it's finally coming to fruition.

    It is a series. Each Book gets a season. Hopefully it won't get cancelled in two seasons because it is too expensive to make (like they did with Rome). I think the first season has 12 episodes, each an hour long. They already shot the pilot and it has been picked up. There were some cast changes to the series after the pilot. They begin filming the rest of season one in July.

    Doubly awesome and yeah, here's to hoping it doesn't get cancelled. Here's to hoping Martin gets off his ass and finishes the series so they can do all the books.

    Man, 12 episodes doesn't seem like nearly enough time to get all of A Game of Thrones covered. I'm interested to see how it goes.

    I think 12 hours should be plenty of time.

    I can't wait for this, one of my favourite books.
    If you like these books, check out The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. He's got characters that are even nastier than those in Game of Thrones

    The First Law trilogy has its ups and downs. I really loved how he took standard genre stereotypes and broke them just enough to make them interesting. The end of the series was a huge downer, though, and didn't satisfy at all.

    man, i can't wait for this series...

    apparently he's basically been done A Dance With Dragons before it was even started, I wish he would just finish it up
