    I feel that Game of Thrones just need This to make it even more interesting.

    Not having watched the show (I'll catch up when I've finished the novels), how do they have episodes of varying length - don't TV shows have to be a certain standard length ?

    On HBO not so much as they don't have adverts to worry about.

    So I think I can tell from that what's going to happen in episode 2.

    We've already known that for a while, from casting calls and George talking about the upcoming season in interviews that he enjoyed writing Joffrey's wedding. (I think he described it something like "great food, drink and entertainment between meals...")

    ^Yeah, I figured also when I saw that he'd written the episode that he'd want to write that particular one. I just didn't know when into the season it would happen.

    It's on commercial satellite TV over here. I suppose they can add or omit advert breaks to make it fit the slot...

    LOVED that shot of Braavos. Methinks we'll see Arya get there this season.

    We'll see her get on the ship, frm the sound of it, but Stannis will be visiting Braavos first, so the shot is undoubtedly from that.

    I also loved that the shot of Braavos. Just how I imagined it. :D

    I'm going to miss out on the first couple of episodes because I'll be on holiday in Italy, so I really cannot wait for this season to start.

    Why is it that I've liked Aiden Gillen in everything else I've seen him in but just find his delivery as Littlefinger a bit 'off'? Something about the delivery seems forced to me.

    Per David Benioff in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, their plan is now definitively for seven seasons (indeed, they're claiming that's always what it ways, which I think is a retcon; but I wouldn't be surprised if HBO's number-crunchers did an estimate of cast retention costs for an eighth season and dissuaded them from it).

    GRRM is so fucked.

    I rewatched the first 3 series back to back and his Welsh accent becomes more pronounced with each passing series. In the promos for the fourth series it's even stronger...almost evil Welsh. Could that be why? :p

    If they've settled on seven seasons rather than eight then GRRM's lack of progress may well be a factor in that. If he was on track to have the final two books out in a timelier manner they might have stuck with eight seasons and a fuller adaptation.
