Hooray!

I know nothing about this other than "HBO series based on fantasy novels with good reputation" and that's all I need to know, really. I'll be watching from day one.

This and that zombie show on AMC are my two most anticipated series.

Re: HBO has greenlighted A Game Of Thrones

Well, you have at least a year to read the books. They worth it.
There are currently 4 of them and the 5th is being written now. 2 more are planned.

Unless you live in the UK where book 3 is split into two books.

Hopefully this will spur Martin to at least finish Dance with Dragons...last I read, it is up over 1200 manuscript pages, longer than any other of the books...

Well if they're doing 1 season a year starting 2011 he has 7 years to bang out the last 2 books. That's not happening

I thought it's been "greenlighted" a long time ago, I mean they've done the casting already and all that.

Anyway, good news I guess.
This will be epic tv.
