Casting news - with the show cancelled, two 'Camelot' alumni are now being considered/in discussions for roles in GoT season 2 (Source: http://twitter.com/CliveStanden)

This is exciting news indeed..

edit: apparently 1 actor is from Camelot, and the other is from another movie/show about Camelot (King Arthur?)

Game of Thrones has been nominated for 13 Emmy Awards including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series & Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Peter Dinklage).

In other news, the latest installment in the novel titled "A Dance With Dragons" was released yesterday.

Tablet size screen just nice for reading ebooks....i tried reading game of thrones on my handphone and by the time i finish prologue already have headache. Went to NeX NLB and checked that they have the 1st 3 books for loan but all 3 on loaned out....guessed that maybe alot of people caught the tv series and went on to read the novels.

The book is going downhill though, it seems that it's starting to degenerate into another wheel of time series... 1st book is great, 2nd and 3rd book starts to be a bit draggy, 4th and 5th book is so draggy that i can basically read the last paragraph of each chapter to know what the whole chapter is talking about.

Agree about WOT, but can't feel it yet for GOT.
But I do think Martin is going the way of Jordan...i.e. milk the series for all it's worth..haha!

I have to say that after Sanderson took over WOT, the pacing of the story has gone from crawling to sprinting. TGS was very good and TOM was fantastic in my opinion.
Sanderson has improved leaps after his Mistborn Trilogy.

I think he meant compared against other regular shows.

Compared against Spartacus, Games of Thrones look like pokemon. Anyway, I thought the sex scene Game of Thrones were less relevant to the storyline as compared to those in Spartacus. GoT look like inserting sex scenes for the sake of it.

Not that I am complaining, I just wish there were more of Daenerys
