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. :-)
The "we're not voting anyone off" was pretty evident from the start, I thought. At least the votes carry over to next week. Sanjaya got more face time than any of the Idols still on the show. It's as if he never left.
