So I broke down and signed up for HBO on Friday.  I really don't care much for it, all they do is show the same old movies over and over and over again.  But I *really* wanted to see Game of Thrones, and they're not cooperating by releasing the DVD set--Season 1 has just now come out now that Season 2 is starting.  See, what happened was, we have a different tv provider over at the coast, and in December, they ran a special where they let me have HBO free for one month.  So of course, I took it, especially since we were going to be there for 9 days straight after Christmas.  And they just happened to be showing Season 1 of GoT during that week.  Before I saw it, I was ok with not watching it, I figured I'd watch it on DVD eventually, but once I saw it, I was hooked.  It really is good.  I don't know if I'd like it so much if I hadn't read the books, though.  The cast is so huge and the story so complicated and involved.  But I love watching it.  I'm re-reading the series, almost done with Book 3, and I realized the other night that when I read now, I picture the actors from the series when I'm reading about the characters.  I especially love Peter Dinklage as Tyrion.  He makes him come across much more loveable than he is in the books.  I love his wry sense of humor and his sarcasm.  But anyway, after seeing Season 1 and getting hooked on it, I didn't think if I could stand waiting a year to see Season 2, so I bit the bullet.  It wasn't so bad, they were running a special where I could add HBO for $5 a month for 6 months, and then $10 a month for a year, and there's no early cancellation penalty.  So, yay.
