Favorite character: Tyrion
Hated character: Joffrey
Some might be glad to hear that I'm starting to enjoy this series more and more for each episode (as I almost knew I would...). Need to sleep now, but might drop by tomorrow to give some thoughts and opinions.

Obvious indeed. Everyone loves Tyrion and hates Joffrey. I can hardly give unbiased opinion on favorite characters based on the show because I've read the books. But Tyrion and Arya have been awesome. Also, I never really liked Jon Snow in the books. I mean as a character, but I liked his plotline maybe the most, but I think Kit Harrington is doing a good job portraying him. Though Dinklage steals every scene from him.
I loved this episode. Finaly a one that didn't end in bad note. Or well, not so bad as the first two. The ending was brilliant, on the other hand it was very heartwarming. The father-daughter relationship, Arya getting to do what she wants. But then right at end you can almost feel the pain from Beans face as the practice swords clashes turn in to metal on metal.
I think book fans enjoyed the episode greatly, since it had many fan favorites. Littlefinger, Varys, Syrio Forell. I personally enjoyed the added scene with Mormont and Rakharo (or who ever, I never were able to memorize who of the bloodriders was who). The other added scene with Robert telling war stories wasn't so good, but still had something interesting in it. Ser Barristan was bit poorly introduced in that scene, but whatever. The way Lancel was displayed made me almost think they fused his character with Podrik. Also about the new scenes, I liked the short one wtih Yoren, Tyrion and Benjen. Also liked the brief mention of Duncan the Tall. Kinda a shame that there isn't really a convienient way to include all the history of Westeros to the show.
But the high-light of the episode for me was definetly the ending. Damn, Syrio Forell was excellent and the the close up to Eddard...
Strange don't hear much opinion on the true villain Jaime Lannister, it kind of a like him hate him attitude which i find interesting. The tension with Ned in episode 3 bubbled up when talking over the past king and Ned's father.
Sean Bean really excelled this episode with his acting from showing dis content to love with his family and wife.
also where the hell is Ghost

Never read the books (didn't know about the series) but might will after this. Am I the only one who's seeing the epicness of the third episode? The upcoming improvement/rearmament in the north (training-wise, not so much material-wise), the Stark's situation in the south and the Dothraki inb4epic

Is Book one equivalent to Season one? I was thinking of dropping by the library next week to see if I can catch the first book there.
Yup. Game of Thrones covers the first season, Clash of Kings will cover the second.
Episode four. Excellent. The plot is thickening. Ned finally starts to unravel the mystery behind Jon Arryns death. The pieces are there, newcomers might even already fit some of them together.
Lots of exposition in this episode though. We learned about the Greyjoys and more about the Mad King and the Targaryens in general. The Hounds backstory, oh yeah. Though I kinda remember in the books Hound told the story to Sansa himself. I hope they haven't cut the Hound/Sansa interaction totally to support Sansa/Littlefinger. Also brief mentions of some of the more fantastical elements of the books. Faceless Men, Lysenese Pirates, red priest Thoros and his flaming sword. Not mention the three eyed crow!
About the new characters, well not many this time. Sam is portrayed pretty well. More screen time for Jory, which is nice. The Mountain that rides. The guy is just huuge! First glimpse of Bronn, who is one of my favorites in the books.
And I'm more psyched what is coming next. Of notable characters Ser Loras should be there, maybe Osha. More jousting and action, hopefully more Hound. And maybe our first sight at the Eyrie. I can't wait to see how it looks in the show.
Oh, and Ghost (Jons wolfie) spotted.

Yeah, I thought its bit early for Grayjoys. Most have prolly forgotten all that when S2 starts. As the series goes on the more important the Greyjous come. Which is pretty annoying because I don't Really like them, vikings or not, mostly boring.
GoT manga? Heard about an american comic, but manga is totally new for me
Stupid iPod wont open the link... Ill check those when I'm back home
Mostly excellent episode. Action starts to kick in. The Eyrie was amazing. But still it's the first one I'm also have mixed feelings about.
I loved the little talk between Varys and Littlefinger. Two of my favorite characters, possibly the two biggest players in the game. Execellent casting.
But as the show goes on, the differences between the books and the show start to bother me more and more. The book is way more subtle with many things and some characters are handled very differently imho.
Many epic quotes in this episode. "Mommy, I wanna see the bad man fly!" Damn they managed to catch the creepiness in the relationship of Lysa and his son.
