Season 6 is going to start soon and I'm so excited I'm nearly peeing my pants! Yeah, I really like this show...lol.
I came to the show late, about midway through Season 4 but once I started watching, I was hooked. No, I have not read the books and I've chosen not to do so until the entire series is complete (which may be a loooong time from now).
For those of you who are fans, I have to ask THE question...
Is Jon Snow going to be resurrected? I ask that and not, "Is he dead" because pretty much everyone connected with the show has confirmed that he is. But no one has made a strong case to suggest he may not come back so...
I'll leave you with this. Just because.

EEK! I'm the other way -- I started on the books and only later got into the TV series. So yes, I was one of those people who was peeved by some of the changes in the show, and not at all surprised by the Red Wedding episode. In fact, I'm pretty sure it was less gruesome than the book, although maybe that's just because I read the book version and got shocked there first.
I don't know if Snow will survive. I haven't watched the last season, and that goes beyond the books. But I'll say this: if he doesn't, I might never watch the rest. I've been so traumatized by both the books and the show that I've decided to wait until it ends and see whether I actually like whoever survives. Assuming anyone does! Then I'll go back and read the books. Assuming Martin writes the rest of them, that is. I'm still angry about the Robert Jordan /Wheel of Time debacle.
Joy, I plan to go back and read the books once the show is over. I've been told that the differences between books and show have become so great that it's almost like two different stories. (Not unlike The Walking Dead).
I was upset with the death of Jon Snow, but I saw the hints along the way. When it happened I wasn't surprised, but deeply disappointed. I have to believe he'll be resurrected somehow, as he seems to important NOT to keep around. We'll see.
We're halfway through Season 6 and I'm not disappointed. I thought Season 5 dragged a bit for the first half, but things have really picked up. Hodor's death hit me pretty hard. Learning how he came to say "Hodor" as he was being torn apart was brilliantly written, and terribly sad. I also love how Sansa has finally grown a spine. She's been so passive for five seasons and I really didn't care for her character because of that, but now she's really captured my attention.
I'd like to see Arya move along. She's been training in Bravos for a season and a half now. Let's go girl!
I'm trying to figure out how Dan and David are going to wrap everything up by the end of Season 7 (I'm assuming that's all that they're going to do.) So many loose ends.
George R.R. Martin's best-selling book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" is brought to the screen as HBO sinks its considerable storytelling teeth into the medieval fantasy epic. It's the depiction of two powerful families -- kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men -- playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, and to sit atop the Iron Throne.
