I've recently finished the latest book (Dance of Dragons) :)

And at least, my favourite character is still alive! \o/

I won't tell you who that is though, for that would be spoilers.

Seeing the recent trend... unfortunaly that could be almost everyone... :(
In addition to that, depending your definition of "alive" even Ned and Rob could be a possibility :P

Reread the 4,5 books... This series (book) went from 5stars to 1star... 4th book was awfull, but 5th is even worst... I couldn't finish it a second time... I have already some discussion with people here that LOVED the last two books but for me... They suck... :S

I didn't buy the 5th (borrowed) and i won't be buying 6th until i get good feedback. IF the 6th and 7th (and according to the haters - 8th)are good, i'll buy them and pretend that the 5th never happened :P

So if the Stark's mantra is "winter is coming", what do they do when winter arrives? Does it change to 'Summer is coming' or 'Winter is here'?

Not really. Hugo came in a very distant second, and Captain America 3rd.

They're still filming. April 2013 if the previous seasons are anything to go by.

So...Ive just got hooked on this Game of Thrones 4 weeks ago. I got me first book then. Almost dont with the 4th book now (Can you tell why my personality goes with with WoW and its hardcore raider life? THoguh I no longer do that...I READ GAME OF THRONES! haha BAM!) and I have to say..book 3 is my fave so far. Book 4 is okay in that I has some long saut answers for me, but so slow compared to book 3. hehe I have the 1st season on DvD as well and have one more disk and that is done as well.

Please Ser, may I have sa'more...

If you thought 4th is slow, wait until you get to 5th... Then even the BMAH will look a bee hive on steroids...

P.S. In fact i must confess 5th is in fact "faster" that 4th... but after the 4th i think it was harder to read....

Eh, I think Dance (5) is a big improvement over 4, but none of them are quite as good as 1-3.

Yeah...4th was PAINFULL!!!!!! Thus far...most of Dance is a bit dry (compared to 1-3) and WAY faster than book 4. haha FUK A DUCK on that book man!

The DVD 1st season is DA SHIT! Love it. I wont get HBO to watch the next season so I will have to wait to buy that season as well. Meh...how it goes right?

Also, The Wall is the best part of the books for me. Kinda like where I live. Legends and magics of old and all that shiat! Lore. ancient stories and the like...hehe BAM!

I'm rewatching the first season now, hoping to stretch out rewatching the second season until season three is out.

IMDB has had a photo for game of thrones at 31/03/13 for a while so I'm taking that as launch night for the third season.

So far I haven't read the books and I'm very tempted to start over chirstmas, although a bit worried about the slow slog people have said the books are.

It's only the most recent two books that I found a slow slog. The others were quite pacy and surprisingly close to watching the TV series. You are at a tricky point because if you start reading now, you will spoil the TV series when there are some twists ahead that exceed Sean Bean's exit from Season 1 in shock value. If you've already been spoiled, then just read the books. I read ahead and don't regret the books spoiling me, as they were terrific reads. And the TV series is of sufficient quality, that you can enjoy it enormously even if you know the story.

I'd say the opposite, read the books to avoid any spoilers from the TV series! The shocking reveals in the books work better due the POV shifting from character to character for me.

At least read the three first... They are very, very good.
