    Fat chance. The better the show is, the higher the chance of HBO cancelling it leaving you hanging.

    Happened to me with Carnivale, then Deadwood, then Rome. HBO had their 3 strikes with me.


    If both the book series and the HBO series remain unfinished, I might have an aneurysm.

    I got the Bluray set of Rome. Watching through them again. What a great show . . .

    Yes, truly great TV. One of the reasons I'm so stoked for Game of Thrones is the overlap of folks who were responsible for Rome and also for this production.

    I didn't realize just how "gritty" Rome was going to be. I'd heard very little about it, and thought it was more of a docu-drama like you might see on the History Channel. So, the first time I watched it, I gathered my grade school and middle school boys to watch too, figuring it would be educational.

    As it turns out, within the first 10 minutes or so, they got a little too "educated" and I had to turn it off and chase them out of the room (and got chewed out by my wife.)

    (But I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series.)

    Rome was supposed to be 4-6 seasons IIRC, but luckily they got word of cancellation in time to just wrap up the story in the second season.

    That makes sense because the ending seemed complete. I think it was for the best. The first season was awesome but the second season seemed quite a bit weaker in comparison.

    Now George R R Martin needs to get back to writing. I can't wait till the next book!

    I remember laughing the day I found his blog online. The guy probably averages 2000 words/day on there, but refuses to finish his damn series. What a shithead.

    I certainly hope this doesn't end up like Robert Jordans Wheel of Time series.

    I remember reading George RR Martin's "update" in 2008 as to why the next book still wasn't done .... I'm about ready to write it off as another Duke Nukem Forever.*


    *: supposedly due out in 2011.

    This thread still lives. New trailer no scenes in it but you get to hear the actors say some of the lines from the book.

    They were aged for the show. To make things a little more believable and bc they didnt want pre-teens and younger on tv handling very adult subject matter.

    God damn it. I have absolutely no idea what was going on there. So, now I have to re-read the book. How long before this thing starts?

    Effin' A it looks awesome!! I'm glad they have Sean Bean in it, he's alway been one of my favorite actors.

    Call me a purist but I remember the decission making on being the Hand differently.

    Then again this show looks certainly more watchable then the Sword of Truth show. Then again that wasn't any worse than the books were.

    Hey dickhead, spoiler alert?

    respectfully, I don't think you can be upset about "spoiling" a series that ended yeeeears ago. it's unfortunate for you to find out this way, but you can't expect people to be hush-hush about plot points because you're several years late to the party.

    i'm just saying.
