Was going to bed but saw this and had to comment. A song of ice and fire is one of my favorite series. I'm expecting big things in a Dance with Dragons which is finally being released in July. Anyway, I finally got the chance to watch this tonight and I was impressed. I thought they did a good job in translating from the book to the screen. While they may never be able to capture EVERYTHING the book did, it's really cool to see it come to life. George Martin has even said it will be a little different. Since he is one of the executive producers I don't think they'll skip out on any of the really good stuff. In my opinion, they have a great cast. Sean Bean is a great actor, and they have a few well knowns, but I think the newcomers and the not-so-household names will steal the show. Definitely looking forward to the rest of the series. And oh yea, lots of boobage.
