Anybody else into this show? If you are a Lord of the Rings fan, or a medieval fantasy fan at all, you should be watching. It's based on the book series and has really been an outstanding show so far. The opening credits are worth a look, if nothing else. I haven't read the books, and I was leary about being able to follow the plot, but it hasn't detracted from my enjoyment of the show. The characters and storytelling are riveting. HBO really knows how to do a series justice. As an animal lover, the direwolf subplot has totally pulled me in. I'm actually glad I haven't read the books, so I am not spoiled as to the eventual outcome. I'm sure there is plenty of tragedy to come, and hopefully some joy. After only two episodes, I'm hooked!
