Is anyone else watching this show?! I kept hearing about it the last couple of years but I finally started watching it on a online site from the first episode about a month ago and I AM HOOKED! The Red Wedding left me in shock for a couple of days and just everything about the show is so full of past history, mystery, secrets and surprises. Seriously thinking of getting the books now. Anyone else here watching the show? And if you've read the books, no spoilers please!

Now we've got a new board for TV and Movies rather than a single thread... I thought Game of Thrones could be the first show to get it's own thread...

Episode 6 really ramped things up....

Yeah, Ramsey has to be the cruelest character in the whole show. Psychopath.

Was an amazing episode, not too sure what happened either.

AP - I'm wondering if we shouldn't just discuss the episodes on the thread but just put a note at the top of the post [Spoiler: S4 Episode 6] so people who haven't seen it yet can choose to avoid.

BB.. I try to keep it clean by not giving up any significant detail but that is a good suggestion.

Let's run with it buddy... if people don't like it, I'm sure they will complain and we'll look at it then.

[Spoiler: S4 Episode 6]

I thought this was an awesome episode. The tension has been building for the last couple of shows and we finally have Tyrion's trial.

In the interim, Theon's sister's failed rescue bid was great viewing. Theon is well and truly wrecked as an human being. I agree with you about Ramsay - he's the cruelest character in the whole show. Brutal, psychotic but clever too... and dare I say it -a fascinating character.

Tyrion was given his get out of jail card and decided to rebel. All the hurt over the years has built up into a crescendo. He goes for the trial by battle option and derails the plans for the Lannister legacy.

Looking forward to Episode 7 - should be class.

Ok.. I have a quick question in regards to Theon's sister's failed rescue.. Can you send me a PM about how you think it got botched.

Spoiler alert:

Also I think it is pretty obvious who the duelers will be for the trial, but in case people haven't pieced it together I won't write the "educated" guess.

I will also be interested to see If Ramsey goes ahead with the plan to infiltrate the Greyjoys with Theon acting like himself.

Part of this show's brilliance is character development. The way Jaime went from an ultimate villain to such a sympathetic figure after his road to redemption is pretty tremendous. One of the most complex characters on the show, to be honest.

I think Ramsay Snow released the dogs so Yara and the others had to flee.

Somebody actually told me who it was going to be (according to the books) and one of them wasn't obvious.
