I don't know. I have friends who, um, "organise" things for me.

I had trouble telling them apart, too, and I've read the books. One of them isn't even a brother! It's Theon Greyjoy who is basically a "hostage" (an honored one if that makes any sense) being held by Eddard Stark to help ensure the cooperation of Theon's father who tried to rebel against King Robert before the books even start. Sorry, that was a long sentence. And that's not even close to being the most complicated character background in this series .

Re: Just watched Game of Thrones episode 1

Theon had a greasy, shift look and no facial hair, Robb had brown hair and beard and Jon had black hair and beard .. I think lol

Jon was the pretty one.

As for Harry Lloyd, yes I'm agreeing with what others have said about him too. Very good. Especially as he always seemed a little wooden as Will Scarlett in Robin Hood.

Re: Just watched Game of Thrones episode 1

Maybe Robin Hood didn't give Lloyd anything to get his teeth into. I watched an early episode in which the director seemed far more interested in the stunts (do we really need to see the same "acrobatic leap from a building" three times from different camera angles?) than in the story, and never tuned in again...

Re: Just watched Game of Thrones episode 1

I loved Robin Hood. (Apart from the last series, which I've wiped from my memory). It didn't take itself too seriously and a lot of people didn't 'get' that.

Harry Lloyd as Will Scarlett = fail. As Viserys = win.

Harry Lloyd was also Jeremy Baines in Doctor Who Human Nature and Family of Blood, and was superb in that.

Re: Just watched Game of Thrones episode 1

Indeed - and my knowing that fact (i.e. who's the link between Robin Hood and Doctor Who) helped our team to win the quiz night at FantasyCon

However we stray off-topic. Dire-wolf puppies - weren't they just adorable?

Jebus, I'm not slagging off Harry Lloyd! The opposite actually. I was impressed.

Re: Just watched Game of Thrones episode 1

I am hoping we do get a proper introduction to Theon. While he had lines in the episode when they found the direwolves, people were never given the premise of his role.

I understand why we didn't in this first episode: too many characters to keep straight, especially for new viewers.

We should see more of him in the next episode(s).

The next episodes are as follows:

E2 - The Kingsroad
E3 - Lord Snow
E4 - Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things
E5 - The Wolf and the Lion
E6 - A Golden Crown
E7 - You Win or you Die

The second episide airing on Sunday is entitled "The Kingsroad"

So, this is where they all go their separate ways, so fewer of the main characters together and easier to manage from a storyline/script point of view.

I knew you wasn't Mouse - it was more me just realizing who we was. ( I never watched Robin Hood, so I ain't got a clue on that...)

And yup the Dire Wolf cubs were sooo cute.

Ok. Well he wasn't that good in it. He was in something else I saw one episode of (I can't remember what it was called) and I didn't realise it was him. I IMDB'd the character (because I thought he was attractive ) and was slightly disturbed when I saw it was the actor who played Will Scarlett!

TK: I like the sound of episode 4!

YES! I can't wait to see more of those cuddly little fluffballs of joy! Especially when they start turning into everything BUT cuddly little fluffballs of joy.
