So each episode will be a few minutes longer each week now resulting in a full episode of extra minutes.

I can't wait until it gets back! I usually download my series, but GOT is worth buying. I have the first season on DVD and I've watched it over and over again. Does anyone know how many episodes season 3 will have?

I presume they're keeping the format of the previous two seasons, so ten episodes!

Game of Thrones was one of the shows could not stop watching (the other being Boardwalk empire)
Can't wait for season 3.
Sorry Walking dead... but after watching these two shoes, you look like you were drafted up by a pre-schooler

Avoid watching on YouTube and just watch it directly from here. There are a lot of spoilers posted in the comments and it may ruin whatever you are up to right now.

After seeing some things that happened in season 2, seeing some indicators in that preview trailer and reading up on some other stuff it seems like HBO is about to start really moving away from following the books as closely as they did in season 1.

I mean, moving really far away from following the books.

It'll be 10 episodes again. They'll be a few min. longer each totaling a complete episode.

Watching the video in itself ruins whatever you're up to now if you're just watching the TV show imo.

I agree. With season one they did a good job. With two, not so much. I mean

I think it's to make it more TV friendly. TV audiences are jaded and you have to keep it interesting in order to maintain viewership.

George R Martin works really closely with GoT, so I don't think it'll fall too far away.

I stopped reading the second book and opted to watch the show first instead to avoid some of the bigger twists that I had ruined by reading the first book before watching it. Like Ned and Drago etc. But I am rethinking that now, after watching the second season I could already tell from the little i read that they changed it up a lot.

I really don't like what they did with Winterfell in the show, I had to have someone who read the books semi-explain wtf was going on. I feel changing things is fine, especially with Martin working so close with the show, as the really important stuff is not gonna get glossed over. But at least provide adequate explanation.

From what I remember of Season 2 and what I remember of the books what happened in Winterfell in the show is what happened in the book. Get used to stuff like that. Martin is ruthless when it comes to that kind of stuff. He doesn't care who he kills or what he destroys.

Ive just seen the trailer for season 3 and it does like its going to be alot different to the book. Im guessing thats Theon Greyjoy getting tortured on the cross which is quite alot different as he vanishes for two books.

If they want to maintain quality & viewers interest then that's exactly what they need to do.

The newest book is rubbish compared to the early ones & at the pace GRRM writes we're unlikely to see the next chapter for a very long time...

There has been some talk of doing a prequel series and the potential of the show going beyond the books, that's probably down to the length of time they take him to write, so yeah I see it going further and further from the books. Especially with him on board, he can kind of look at it now in hindsight and be like, hmmm I should have done this instead and now he can.

Well, from what I saw last night I think I'm right about them really committing to moving away from the books. I get the feeling that certain characters are going to live a lot longer then they did in the books.

Overall I think that is a great idea. The show could end up being much better then the books. However, there are some things that need to stay the same. One thing they changed last night that I wasn't happy with:

Pretty good season opener I thought! Glad to see Davos back, even if he is now in the dungeons.

Yeah I don't expect him to. Having said that, I didn't expect Ned Stark to stay in King's Landing's dungeons for very long, and he ended up losing his head... I really like Davos as a character so I hope he doesn't find himself with a similar problem.

Heard that the producers/director of the show just wanted to get to Season 3 as those people that have read the books would know, Book 3 is where all the good stuff happens.

Yeah they've said before if they could get far enough to a certain event that takes place in book three they'd be happy. Of course that doesn't mean they'll stop there

Let's just hope that GRRM doesn't take too long to finish the last books or else the show will catch up to the books.

GOOD! Bitch sold one of her dragons. Hopefully she trades the dragon because she plans on calling him to her or some crap once she sets sail. Total dick move, but the leader of the slave city is a total dick so they kind of counteract each other.
