This series has long been on my future reading list. Have to finish the Hyperion series first (I know I'm way behind most folks in the reading department). I was excited to find out that this was being adapted for TV, and I got giddy when they showed that teaser last night - and I haven't even read one page.
Is the plan still to have one season = one book? Considering it's HBO, Martin's got plenty of time to finish the series. :-)
I abandoned this show at the end of last season, and am actually looking forward to this season being as awful as possible so that I can laugh at my friends and fiancee that still watch the show. John, I'm very disappointed in your brevity.
