Well, ain't you just a regular Sperlock Holmes? That may be the exact series I was talking about. Thanks a million!

The commercials look incredible. What I'm not sure about is whether I should just bask in the coolness of the series, or if I should read the books first.

Read them. Even if the TV series is perfect, reading the books will give you an even better appreciation for how perfect it is. If it were anyone else, reading them before watching might take too long... but the way you tear through books, you'll easily have the first one done before the first season comes out. And once you read the first one, no one will have to encourage you to read the rest of them.

Shouldn't we be encouraging Martin to write the rest of them?

So, all this talk about this series has convinced me to give it a read. I checked out A Game of Thrones from the library, today.

the thing about these books is that there are SO many characters and subplots. I think I read that there are 500+ different characters mentioned throughout this series. I think my favorite character is Jon Snow (although I hate the actor they picked to play him), but Tyrian Lannister is cool too.

I'm betting that Peter Dinkleage will be the most famous-est Little Person EVAR after this plays out.

WINTER IS COMING, bitches
