Looks great! I hope they caught the atmosphere of the books.

If I had to ask for anyone to do the show it would have been HBO. I've just been looking at the 'making of' video on the HBO website and it looks like we are in for such a treat. Fantasy for adults (especially in films and on TV (not to be confused with Adult Fantasy of course lol) is so thin on the ground. Roll on April!!!
I'm awfully excited about this! I wish the next book would hurry up and come out!
LMAO Ravs, get out of my head! I ordered hbo a week ago, just finished rereading book 1, amd devoured every trailer i could find last night.
LOL! I must be the last person on earth who's found out that HBO were makings this. I only discovered it today. RE: I read a comment on one of the you tube trailers: 'At the speed that George RR Martin writes his books, the scriptwriters will have to finish the story for him'.
Gidde: It's funny, but I always like it when I've half forgotten a book when the film is made. I must have read the first book over 8? years ago. Perfect for me as the film will spark little memories, but I can't remember so much that if they decide to do something slightly different I'll notice it.
I am SO not worthy to call myself a fan of Fantasy.. I had never heard of these books until I saw the trailer.. (off to amazon I go.. )
Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

Ohhhhh, you're in for such a treat, jt!!!!! Enjoy!!
All I can say jt, is buckle up, you're in for a helluva ride!
Actually Ravs, reading it now is sorta doing the same thing for me ... I retain very close to nothing when I read a series, so 3 months from now when the series starts I'll have forgotten most of it. I'm only really rereading now, because I got my mom to read the series and I can't talk about it with her because I keep remembering things out of order.
example (spoiler free)
Mom: I just started the series! It's really good, I'm almost done with book one!
me: Cool, how'd you like the Wedding?
I think i speak for all fans of the book when i say, IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME! Anyone know when the show is being aired in Australia?
People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...
