Yes, it's very nice and informal.  It was fun seeing her running around to get the phone that was ringing!

Yes, I saw that bit ;)

Just saw this posted on Google+ and it mixes retro with this show very well...

Well, I finally got to watch some of this fine series on Blu-Ray. The missus and I watched the whole of season 1 & 2. Not bad but I think I will wait for it all to come to disc as each episode is fairly short and would be frustrating to be kept hanging on each week lol. I intend to get series 1, 2 and 3 on disc and watch it all over again (series 3 twice of course) and then series 4 will be available. :69:

Cool, though I'm surprised you think the episodes are short.  They each are a full hour long since they are not televised with commercials (unlike shows on prime time TV which end up being 40 minutes long).

Ah, I did question myself after posting that statement. You see many TV series, especially the American ones, are littered with ads so an hour long show contains only 40 minutes worth of programme. As I posted, I remembered some episodes, eg episode 10 in both series 1 & 2, were on one disc. TBH, I lost track of time somewhat but I did get into it even if some of the surprises don't really surprise me that much.

I was a little disappointed that winter never actually arrived at the end of series 1 (I know more about this but won't spoilt it). I peeked a few minutes of episode 1 from series 3 and was pleased, but I am banned from watching any more till we can watch it together lol

Well, we are only one more episode away from the season finale and that's coming this Sunday.  Eager to watch it but knowing that I'll have to wait quite a while for the next season is not fun.  The latest episode focused on The Wall and nothing else, so the finale, I'm sure, will have story to tell from various lands.  ;)

Yeah the end of series 2 made me think of fire and ice. I am guessing there is a big battle coming ;)

I believe it has two more seasons already approved by HBO.

'Game of Thrones' showrunners promise: Best finale yet.
Cool and a finale of 66 minutes makes one wonder what the extra 6 minutes are for ;)

Whoa, I just finished watching the season finale a little while ago.  This was a very open ended finale!  They really want us to be eager to watch the next season!
