Yes I am watching it. Great episodes so far. The latest ending did leave me a bit bewildered as to what may be coming. I like this series for the stories and character interaction and the last scene is a bit worrisome for where it may go. I have never read the book by the way.
I haven't read the books either - the story so far is exclusively character-driven, and I hope it stays that way for the most part, but I think it was inevitable for stronger fantasy/mythical elements to be introduced and play a part in shaping the plot.
Yeah I do not mind the whole fantasy...I mean many hints have been dropped form the first episode. I just pray that the story remains as interesting as it has been and they do not shift to huge battle scenes with fire breathing dragons and mystical imps
I would like every show to start out with a MAP and a list of where each character is right now and in which direction they are heading. LOL We have gotten lost a few times as to where people are or are heading... Almost too many characters! LOL
The very opening scene of Season One had a tall flesh eating giant-like creature. Pretty supernatural. We've had dead creatures that come back to life. We have dragons.
I havent' read the books either, but you know that it is fantasy and we will likely see even more "supernatural" stuff.
