Best thing that has happened to me all week: discovering HBO GO.  I've been quietly freaking out about how to pirate GoT, to the point where I actually had an extremely stressful dream last week in which I couldn't find any links.  I was very upset.  So last night I was poking around the HBO website (trying to find out if they were going to put the episodes up on iTunes) and discovered that since my father has an HBO subscription, I can sign in as him and watch the episodes online!  I almost watched the episode right then and there (they put it up immediately!  Unbelievable) but I had to be up in 8 hours and I knew I wouldn't be able to fall asleep afterward.

So I watched it this morning!  Pretty great way to begin the day.

I don't know what the general consensus has been, but I loved it and I am so thrilled for the rest of the season.  This episode wasn't the most exciting just because it takes a bit for the ball to get rolling, but now Dany's married and Bran's paralyzed and Ned's riding yeah, I'm excited.  :)  

The whole thing was just so damn pretty.  So far I love all of the actors.  Early favorites: Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams, Michelle Fairley, and Lena Headey.  Plus Sean Bean and Peter Dinklage and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and everybody else.  I even liked Robert!  Well done, Mark Addy.  Well done.  And whatshisname who plays Viserys is marvelously awful.  Love it.  Can't wait for certain events which anybody who has read the book knows are coming.

I think the Dothraki scenes may have been my favorite (even though they are occasionally hard to watch).  I just love Dany, and I can't wait for all that lies ahead.

I'm also excited that we got "the things I do for love" in the first episode because A) it's such a fabulous moment/scene, B) we can stop dancing around the incest thing, and C) we can actually talk about Bran without being totally spoilerific!  Sort of. 

In conclusion: is it next week yet?

Also I need an icon.  Kind of want one of Arya in the helmet.  Or anything with the direwolf pups because omggggg so cute.
