Game of Thrones

So, are any Shakers planning on watching Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martin's fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, which premieres this weekend on HBO...?

It will definitely be watched at Shakes Manor, where there's a reasonable possibility Iain will actually explode with excitement before the show even airs. He's read Game of Thrones, but I haven't. I am a huge fan of the fantasy genre, but you all know why I'm really watching it:

I'm also thrilled that Lena Headey is in it, who was not only Queen Gorgo in 300, but was Luce in Imagine Me & You, one of my favorite rom-coms.

Although I am looking forward to it, I'm doing so with some trepidation, because fantasy + women + cable [usually] = BOOBIEZ (and not much else for the ladies to do), and I'm getting a dark skin = baddies vibe (possibly wrongly) from some of the trailers I've seen.

Anyway, I'll provide a discussion thread after the premiere, if others are interested. Let me know in comments.
