    I agree, that is just WOW...

    A very good read of books for anyone interested in epic fantasy.
  2. I haven't read the books...it is now on my "to do" list. I am seriously intrigued about this series.

    HBO is a great venue for a venture like this - Rome and Deadwood are must see for me.

    This is great news.

    Very interesting. I love the books, and HBO has the budget to pull this off. The 'one season per book' format that the article references should work well, as it will allow for a fair amount of detail.

    Only downside, I don't have HBO (no cable out in the woods :p). It'll be released on DVD later, though.

    You sir need DirecTV! :D
  6. Direct TV blows. I had it for like a year and the signal always died. TimeWarner = win

    Well that would be great but remember he said he can't get cable :p
  8. The series is definitely well written...but also annoying/frustrating for me.

    I thought about it, I even have a dish installed that the previous owner of my house left. I tested it for signal strength, but some trees have apparently grown since it was installed, as there's no LOS to the satellite anymore. I could have trimmed the tops of the trees easily enough, but my motivation to watch television being what it is, I just used the post that the dish is installed on to tie the dog's lead to. :p

    Of course, if the television people keep making interesting shows like these, I may have to rethink that...

    Scale a tree and put it at the top! :D
  11. I'm currently working my way through the first book, great story!!!

    Yeah. I've never read the series but those who I've talked to rave about it. Not your typical Fantasy series, that's for sure.

    Right now I'm reading Silverheart by Moorcock/Constantine. Different slant on the whole Eternal Champion thing. After that I'm going to start the His Dark Materials series beginning with The Golden Compass. The book is going to be a movie at the end of the year. Steampunk is the one word for this series, so I'm interested.

    After all that, I'll pick up this series. By then we should know the schedule and when it comes out.
  13. His Dark Materials is awesome, I really loved those books.
  14. A Song of Ice and Fire is the greatest thing ever. If HBO fucks this up someone is going into the ground.
