    Taking the place of The Walking Dead on Sundays is Game of Thrones! Starts this Sunday!
    I'm Central so we can watch the Central/Eastern show together if you want.

    If people start posting book spoilers I wont participate.

    Anyone in?

    I'll pass. I didn't read the books so I don't know what is coming. I almost quit when Ned Stark was beheaded. I quit this time with the Red Wedding.

    While I am sure the author writes great fiction, the way he allows people to like a character...then kills it off in a very violent way doesn't make me want to continue following the story.

    I read Michael Moorlock's books...dark fantasy does not make me enjoy reading. Game of Thrones gives me the same feeling.

    Enjoy!

    That is the biggest reason I love the show/books.
    No one is safe. There are no real "main" characters that cannot meet their demise in the next chapter.
    It is daring and strong and very intriguing to me when a writer is confident enough in his story to kill of a "main".
    It makes me care that much more for those who remain.

    I would end up spoiling the show for everyone plus I'm the nervous giggler during sex scenes ;)

    We should definitely do a movie night though at least once this spring and again in the summer?

    So...it looks like I can't see the latest Game of Thrones episode. All of the links to the show at the site which I use...have deleted the show in protest of the **** scene. I read the wiki of the books and it said that scene was consensual, not ****. Typical Hollyweird...needing to ramp things up for that "shock" value.

    (old man rant)
    Reminds me how Hollyweird has to inject some "naughty" into remakes of classic kids movies. For instance, in the live action version of The Grinch, the characters allude to a gathering which is basically an orgy/swingers party...don't remember that in the cartoon. Ditto with the Flintstones live-action movie...sexing it up everywhere. I met a producer whilst in Mississippi (they were filming "My Dog Skip" movie) and she loudly proclaimed that everyone was giving everyone else...er...a type of sex act constantly to either get attention/deals/part in a movie....very typical "hollyweird" mind-set.

    I would love to Flutter, but I don't know if my rotation would be a problem as there would be some episodes I wouldn't be able to watch until the Monday morning after they aired.

    I really like Airmid's suggestion of Movie night too :popcorn:
