Just a little bit! Looks fantastic, suppose I best start watching series 1 again soon (yes I have far too much spare time on my hands that could be spent so much more productivity but it is Game Of Thrones afterall!).

I've been watching it through with a friend - 5 more episodes left of season 6 to watch on Tuesday and then the wait...

Just started series 1 and I'm onto episode 2. Think I may have left it a little too late to get all 6 seasons in (as I'm away for a week as well) but I'll give it a good go, second trailer they've released looks fantastic as well.

I shall be avoiding everything to do with season 7 until the boxset comes out, everytime a new series is screened the net is filled with spoilers, it's such a pain!

I have no idea how you avoid all of the spoilers until the box set comes out, I often find it a struggle to last the day when an episode has aired, even more so now all of my colleagues watch it at 2am when it's broadcast alongside the US audience, don't blame them mind as if I didn't start work at 7 every Monday I'd certainly stay up till 2 each week! :lol:

I'm not sure quite how i manage it either, but i must be doing something right as the season 6 finale explosion incident took me completely by surprise.

Well I'll have season 1 finished today, got the day off (and no plans) tomorrow so I'll be making a good start to season 2 as well.

Well I got my marathon of Game Of Thrones finished off just in time for the 2 am showing of episode 1 of season 7, Dragonstone. Was a pretty good start to the season I suppose :D

I really enjoyed it - a great setup for the season showing us what all the different characters are heading towards - nothing major happened but there were a lot of great character moments.

Good start, managed to do a lot of setup without meandering too much. Also a lot keener on Euron now, the actor just didn't seem to fit the role last season but that scene with Cersei was much, much more what I expect from him, hope he keeps it up for the rest of the season.
The Ed Sheeran cameo was jarring as gooseberry fool though, who gave that the okay

The scene wouldn't have been different had Ed Sheeran been awkwardly sat there or not, well besides the rendition of that song which did sound pretty good. When I first saw it I briefly wondered if his head had just been edited onto the body, it didn't seem quite right.

That's just Ed's Sheeran's face.

Anyway, I enjoyed the episode. It started off strongly and although it slowed down afterwards it did enough to set up future episodes whilst keeping me entertained at the same time.

It would have been different, it took the focus off "hey look Arya's murder-first-ask-questions-later worldview is getting challenged by some nice Lannister lads" and put it on "hey look Ed Sheeran is in Game of Thrones, is he getting any more lines?"
Previous celebrity cameos have worked because they've either been less instantly recognisable or more in the background, eg members of Mastodon popping up as White Walkers or the Coldplay drummer drumming at the Red Wedding. This was way too in-your-face.

Probably because whenever there was a shot of Arya, Ed Sheeran was in it too. Not only that, but he was in front of her, but the focus was still on her, so we just had half the screen being Ed's blurry, dumbass face.

But the message of the scene still got through clearly enough (the Lannister soldiers being humanised from Arya's POV), even with Edd Sheeran sat there. Maybe it's because I'm far from his biggest fan (a few of his tracks are ok but that's about it) that I didn't focus in him too much, even with him sharing the screen with Arya. I'm just hoping he isn't actually a returning character and the cameo was a one off.
