    I decided to check it out so got the first season on dvd last Tuesday, finished it on Friday 10 am. Quite entertaining, rather similar to the Plantagenets and the Tudors. However there is far too much gratuitous sex which does nothing for the story line. Also I would like to know what happened to Eddard Stark, how did his head get onto a pole?

    Sorry for spoilers if people haven't watched it, but if you're in this thread, it's your own fault.

    Bill Boddy Eddard Stark was executed, that's why his head is on a pole. How did you miss the execution? S01E09, at the very end. Hard to miss, mate.

    I am feeling the need to watch the whole thing again before it starts in April.

    Have a look at that screenshot that I posted. The sword is clearly missing Stark, very poor editing, should do better.;)

    Did you want them to actually cut the head off?

    No, but I did want them to make it look as though they did.

    ? Well they did.

    Your screen grab is the sword being brought into place 4.33 and the actual blow from Ilyn Payne is 4.38 in the below vids. Looks good to me.

    Oh and by the way I think they do an amazing job in producing around 10 hours of film quality series every single year. Some 2 hour films take years to make.

    I think that you are correct about my screenshot Greenlantern101 but if you look in slow motion at the video it is quite clear that the sword comes down in front of Eddard's face.

    I watched it several times and its very blurred. I don't think you can say that.

    So you don't like the programme because the beheading scene wasn't realistic enough? Okaaaay.

    I did not say that. I merely pointed out the sort of error which occurs with all series at some time. There are plenty of tv programmes doing the same thing. However I do think that things like the lesbian scene do not do anything for the story, why do they have to use padding in the first place?

    Out of all the sex scenes to pick in Game of Thrones I think you've picked one where there actually was a character development aspect to it, since it was all about Daenerys accepting her situation and looking for a way to have a sense of control in her forced marriage with Khal Drogo. There are plenty of scenes in brothels/with prostitutes that don't serve much purpose, though.

    If it bothers you there actually seems to be less and less (at least female) nudity as the series go on, so you have that to look forward to I guess... The rest of us will sob in front of our screens and give a salute to our lost boobies.

    I meant another one where Petyr (I think) is doing a monologue with the ;es action taking place at the back. He keeps on telling them to swap places etc.

    Season 2 should be along soon.
