    Finished reading the book and I have to say it was well worth it. The best book to tv series I can think of. I did enjoy the danyareus storyline more on hbo than the book, it was my favorite part of the hbo series.

    More people need to know about this, I haven't read the books and I loved the hell outta' the first season. Honestly it's near the top of some of the best stuff I've seen on television.

    I saw a brief video on how much cgi is in the show. It's amazing how little "real life" they actually used. I'll try and find the video again.

    As much as I grumble about some of the visual choices in the series (basically that the Direwolves are virtually non-existent, and they're fairly important staples for the Stark children in the books), the CGI is pretty remarkable.

    Clearly, given the fairly limited budget (in a vacuum anyway - I'm sure it's remarkably high for TV), they had to do a lot of CGI to create this world. And while the environments and the "grandness" feel a bit dwarfed to me, they did some really nice work. Just watching the "Behind The Scenes" of the CGI was pretty impressive.
