When I was in grade school the SCI-FI channel used to play Robotech in the morning. Channel used to be awesome.

I haven't watched it in a few years but the show holds up remarkably well, despite some of the cheese.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Just finished Being Human(the UK one) season 4, surprisingly the new cast is cool.  I just don't see next seasons villains as villains though.

Can't wait for sunday season two of GoT(I read the books know what's gonna happen but oh well, still excited :P)

On season two of the original Star Trek series. I love this show to bits.

Just through with The Doomsday Machine episode, which was darling.

Started S1 of Game of Thrones. It's good, but a little cheesy. The show comes off 100 times more raunchy than the book, so far. The dothraki king looks like:

It's medieval fantasy.  Cheese factors can't be helped.
Like WRPGs.

Yeah, I just started Season one of Game of Thrones as well. We've watched 2 eps so far. I agree about the cheesiness, but it almost can't be helped. It's a beautiful production. Damn, they spent a lot of cash on this. You really get the feeling of scope. They do seem to be latching on to the boobies aspect of the books, but it IS very much in there, so I don't blame them. Sex sells.
Sean Bean is Sean Bean, but he's good at it. I didn't remember Catelyn being such a wuss, but it's been a LONG while since I've read book one. Most of the actors are perfect for their respective parts. The Hound looks wrong, though. Too small and "normal" looking.

Option A: Bad TV CGI

Option B: Steroid them.

I love the opening theme more than this forum.

The opening theme is great, and so is the menu music. I also love the opening sequence itself. Very cool.

Ha! I didn't realize she was talking about the direwolves. I thought her response was kind of odd, but Dice...is..kind..of..odd.

Yeah, Dice is such a weirdo. Dunno why we hang out with her, cause we are the cool kids, right?


Right?

I actually wonder what they're going to do. At the point of season 1 / book 1 they're only pups. A direwolf is supposed to be pretty massive.

I hope they just keep the dogs. I don't want any horrible twilight level graphics

The dothraki king looks like:

I very much approve of Drogo's casting; Mr. Momoa is certainly a comely gentleman.
 
I agree with Grim about the Hound. Compared to how wild he comes off in the books, his portrayal in the show is very low-key. He almost comes off as a broken dog.
