Vin, how well are you following without the benefit of having read the books? Hard for me to really imagine, as I know these charachters to well, and I know what is going to happen to them. I am sure that not having that knowledge makes the experience very different. I will tell you that the following characters are perfectly cast and fit how they are presented in the books to a "T".

Ned Stark
Tyrion (The Imp)
Jaime Lannister
Arya Stark
Jon Snow

Some characters are a bit of a disappontment, altho they are growing on me. The "Hound" for one, is not nearly as frightening / intimidating a character as he should be. And Cersei Lannister isn't nearly as hot as I would have imagined.....but she is certainly enough of a bitch.

Sorry, I'm such a friggin geek for this story.
pretty good cause I'm not retarded.

shows like these with a massive character list tend to get a little nuts at first but you settle down nicely. Rome was horrendous for 4 episodes (all the senators looked alike!) but turned out to be one of my favorites series.

I'll watch anything on HBO. They have a great track record.

The first character I hated was Joffrey. You could tell right away that

spoiler!:

that he was not Robert's son and I suspect he's actually the freak offspring of Jamie and Cersei. And I hate the look of him.

the only group that confuses me is the ones left defending winterfell. I guess mostly cause nothing really has happened yet.

Tyrion is one of my favorite characters. Peter Dinklage should win an emmy.
