I hope this comes to the UK soon.  It only took about five years for The Wire to come over so I'm hopeful!

Also, HBO, when you send it over here please sell it to the BBC, so I don't have to suffer through an advert break every five minutes.  Ta.

Oh, ta Aenima.  A deal with Sky means we'll probably be no more than a week behind you guys when the show airs, which is awesome.  I'd rather it was the BBC but at least I know we're getting it now.

Ha!  Five minutes later, I was watching Sky and saw an advert for a new channel, Atlantic, starting in February which is to be the home of HBO's world class television. smile

With the teasers they've shown I don't think they've shown The Wall yet.  Of all the visuals from the books, The Wall is the one where special effects are going to have the hardest time living up to my mental picture.

here's some pieces of concept art for The Wall (see edit).  I'll spoiler it just in case anyone wants to wait until the show airs to see it.

Spoiler for Hiden:




remember, it's concept art, so it could be totally different.

[edit]looks like the first one I posted is actually from the upcoming PC game and not the show.  the second piece may be questionable too.

There's a full trailer out now, showing more of the characters and locations.  Still no Wall.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Ghost makes an appearance,  but he's a beautiful white German Shepherd,  not a Wolf.

I don't think it's a German Shepherd. It's a special dog bred to look wolf-like without actually being part wolf. There are strict regulations about working with wolves, so they have limited options. I suspect the direwolves will become CGI in later seasons, but for this one they're still very young.

They're calling this the first "full length" trailer.  Pretty damn cool.  This is the one I'll be showing to try and hook friends who've never heard of the series.

Yeah, Littlefinger does look perfect.  I was also happy to see them hint at how they're going to connect the main continent storyline to Dany's.  I wasn't sure how tv audiences would accept a plotline that was so far away from really converging with the main one, but if they tie them together as in the trailer it looks like it'll work just fine.

On whatever planet Westeros is on, wolves look like dogs. Easily explained biggrin

it's been so long since I've read the books (I stopped after Storm of Swords) that I cannot remember who Littlefinger is.  then again, forgetting a lot of the book may make the series more enjoyable as I won't have to worry about nitpicking.

Without giving much away, he was the Master of Coin and also a master manipulator pulling strings with pretty much every player in the game.  Was also a childhood friend of Ned's wife Caetlyn and her sister Lysa.

Actually, I think all the dialogue you're referring to in the trailer is in the books as well.

Most of the casting looks decent.  Bran looks like a girl to me, almost like a young Kate Winslet.  It kind of bugs me but I'm sure I'll get over it.  The one I don't like the look of is Jon Snow.  He's also kind of too pretty or something.  I originally thought it was this guy who I thought looked great, but it turned out he was the producer (David Benioff)!  The Daenarys dye job looks a little off to me, but someone assured me her hair was supposed to look that way.  They forgot to dye her eyebrows though.

Thoughts?

I thought they ended the preview at an awkward, non-enticing point, but other than that everything looked great. 

book plot spoiler of next scene
Spoiler for Hiden:
I think they would've left people with more of a teaser feeling if they had ended it a few minutes later, just after they discover the wolves.
