I know a large number of Major Spoilerites have read and enjoyed the A Song of Fire and Ice series of books from George R. R. Martin. HBO is taking the first book in the series, Game of Thrones, and bringing it to HBO has a mini-series. The cable network recently released a behind the scenes look at the adaptation.

The series premieres in April 2011.

    If it is a tenth of what the books give us it will be epic and great. Everything I see here looks very promising. I am excited.

    I wonder if the series will catch up with the books. It’s been five years since we’ve seen one and I think he’s been working on it longer than that. The series began casting last year and they’re almost ready to premiere.

    Those sets and costumes look amazing! Very much looking forward to this – I suppose when you’re an Ice and Fire fan you need to take what you can when you can get it!

    I’m interested to see what they leave out in the adaptation, it’s certainly tough to leave anything out completely, and wouldn’t it suck if some important plot element in the seventh book relied on some seemingly-inconsequential element early on that they ended up leaving out in the tv series?
