Glass is as it was in medieval times, which is to say so cripplingly expensive for even poor quality glass that most lords made do without, though Winterfell does have glass gardens, and I think the Eyrie is mentioned to have some at some point. That production video was awesome, but the Unsullied in it were missing their short swords that the book states that they have in addition to the spear and shield. Also, I kind of expected the shields to be a fair bit larger, as they are basically ancient Greek hoplites with their phalanx formations.
Started watching the first episode at 8 Saturday night... Watched the last episode at 6 the Sunday morning, 10 hours well spent.
[QUOTE=Zezibesh;34800819]The glass panels at the Winterfell gardens are mentioned pretty early in the first book. Glass is only used by lords in Westeros, in the east it's more common. Still extremely expensive, especially clear glass.[/QUOTE]Yup, in Dance Jon mentions that the wall should get some glass houses for growing vegetables but they need gold for that, he implies that it's actually cheaper to buy some glass blowers from the east and get them to train some of the NW rather than buy the actual glass.

Someone in a /tv/ thread linked it and I posted it here.

I think it's a good idea that they're moving (Book 3) [sp]Jeyne up, that kinda came out of nowhere in the books even if it made sense that a 16 year old boy would fall in love super fast. This will have a bigger impact when the Red Wedding happens too.[/sp]

It puts an interesting contrast with him and Ned really, Ned would have taken care of the bastard but still married the Frey. Robb, due to his experience with Jon, didn't want to have a bastard.[/sp]

I'm guessing they're gonna emphasize the relationship a lot more in the TV show.[/sp]
Was that a clip of [sp] Shadow Babby birth I saw there?! YES! [/sp]

I fucking [B]LOVED[/B] this show. So much, I wanted to buy the books on Amazon. Got a friend with a credit card to get me a gift card there, but then when I go check out... $19 more for shipping. I'll have to wait for the next seasons :(
I bought the second book plus some others for my family, and shipping was free as the total was over $30 or something like that.
For anyone who wants to see it in HD, the new trailer was finally released officially: [hd]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X66PDW1Mjf8[/hd]
Near the end of the trailer (1:40ish) [sp]I'm pretty sure I saw a glimpse of Tyrion administering the bitch slap to Joffrey again. Fuck yes. [/sp]
This shit is gonna be so fucking awesome. I already cannot wait for season 3. Book 3 was by far the best I've read so far. [sp]I've read 3, don't judge.[/sp]

[QUOTE=Acezorz;34897590]Was bored, made this: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaLy6WCSLiI[/media][/QUOTE] That was quite horrible and amusing at the same time.
[QUOTE=Acezorz;34897590]Was bored, made this: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaLy6WCSLiI[/media][/QUOTE] I cracked up when Jon laughed. I should just replace the Shadow teaser in the OP with this. So much better than all of the stuff HBO's put out.

Should be green fire!
This is the only thread where I've refused to view a spoiler. I fucking love this series.

[QUOTE=Zezibesh;34942900][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxppcwF46Aw[/media] Great song from book 3 for those who have read it.[/QUOTE] Not quite how I had formed it in my head but a good listen nevertheless.
Wow, just been looking, and youtube has loads of covers of the songs the Bear and the Maiden Fair, The Rains of Castamere and so on. Oh, and The Dornishman's wife.
I believe some sites held a contest on who would make the best cover. That's most likely the reason.
[video=youtube;t92ukx0A2fk]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t92ukx0A2fk[/video] Adorable. Also, the show arrives on DVD in THREE DAYS! :dance: edit: God, what's the new code for embedding videos? I've tried both [media][/ media] and [video][/ video] . edit 2: There we go.
