    Great ratings and a green light for season 2 (and more) are sure 1st 2 picks
    #3 is for me signing Natalie Portman :p

    I would settle for Christina Hendricks as Melisandre, Felicia Day as Ygritte and Tricia Helfer as anything.

    Bit late to the party but merry christmas and all that nonsense.

    My biggest wish? That the show will be the best thing tv has ever seen. I’d rather have weak ratings, no emmy’s and an alas no season 2, but that it’ll be remembered as an even better Firefly. Of course, quality and succes usually go hand in hand with HBO, but if I had to choose it would be the quality.

    And of course ADWD, but that’s also on my 2012 list just in case.

    I agree with everything you’ve got up there, Winter.

    My only addition is the option to purchase and/or subscribe to the show online that doesn’t require a cable package purchase or US residency.

    The only thing stopping it at this point is HBO’s relationship with US cable companies.

I want everyone who has come in and out of my life over the past 8 years whom I have talked about the books like a crazed fan boy to, and who did not read it, to hear about the show, watch it, love it, think about me and say “dude was right”.

    1. Emmy nom for Sean Bean. I’m not as confident in Dinklage’s strange English (?) accent to sustain suspension of disbelief over the haul of an entire series as I once was. Though I could be wrong. I hope I am. Most eyes will be on Sean, however.

    2. I’m pretty damned sure season 2 will be greenlit, but I’m not so confident that I won’t drop it into the wish bucket.

    3. ADWD by April.

    1. That Sky in UK will show GoT at the same time as HBO in US.
    2. ADWD by April and a great Polish translation by the end of the 2011 (just in case I struggle with reading it in English)
    3. Seson 2, 3, 4, 5 …

    By the way…I am visiting my family in Poland and today I have seen the trailer on Polish HBO. It was a first time I saw it in TV and not on my laptop – it was great, even though, it was the shortes one.
    The good news is that it will be shown in POLAND :D. The bad news is (but I’m just guessing) it may not be aired before Summer. They start airing BE in January…so it’s like 3-4 months gap, right?

    Hear, hear on 1 and 2, for Melisandre, go to my answer to Steven Scott´s comment…

    Steven Scott: Why do people keep suggesting very dark complected people like Bacarin or Belluci for a character with porcelain skin?    

    Bridget Reagan perhaps? She has porcelain skin, natural red hair (she won´t have to use a wig), reasonably known, Irish descendant(with family there), in the right age,28,available(I think) and affordable(I hope so).

    Slynt,
    Very much looking forward to A Dance with Dragons, but I wonder if HBO has done the math. If they do a novel every year, that would 2011=A G of T, 2012 = A C ofK, 2013 = A S of S, 2014= A F of C, 2015 = A D of D, 2016 = Book 6, 2017 = Book 7.
    If A D of D, comes out this year, it may be possible that Book 6 will be out by 2016. But it will be impossible for for Book 7 to come in time to go on HBO. Just saying

    I agree but in Monica Belluci´s case, she is 46 now, after 5 seasons, she will be 51, I repeat, 51, too old even for the magnificient Monica, too old to play as our beloved-hated red priestess, Lady Melisandre of Asshai.
    As you all know by now, maybe not, my first pick, money aside, Eva Green, the real one, the they can pay for, the one and only Bridget Regan

    3.) Emmy noms for everyone, especially Sean Bean
    4.) Greenlit for 2nd and 3rd season (had to one up you all)
    5.) A non-UK (exception: Natalie Portman), exotic, mysterious, beautiful and dangerous feme fatale for Melisandre, who must also be a talented actor.
    6.) ADWD
    7.) Best actor Oscar for Ms. Portman

  48. Maester Tcost
    Posted December 25, 2010 at 6:54 pm | Permalink

    As much as I want to see ADWD published soon, it’s #2 on my list. At the top is such an overwhelming success for the TV show that it enters the vernacular the way that the Sopranos did, that it is the subject of watercooler conversations in every office in America and stays that way until the final season has come and gone. To become an intergral part of the zeitgeist and to see the novels studied in English literature classes alongside Moby Dick and Huckleberry Finn.

    How’s that for ambition?

    Short of that, Christopher Lee as Qyburn and Bridget Regan as Asha. And someone still in her twenties for Melisandre and teenagers for Ygritte, Brienne, Margery, and Meera. As well as Emmy nominations for Sean Bean (Lead Actor), Michelle Fairley (Leading Actress), Peter Dinklage (Supporting Actor for Season 1), and Lena Headey (Supporting Actress).

    1. Season 2 greenlight. I almost take this for granted, but it’s still the most important thing.

    2. Solid ratings. It does not have to be the next True Blood, ratings-wise. Just strong enough that we can feel confident in at least three seasons.

    3. Nothing really comes to mind. Emmy nom for Bean or Dinklage would be cool, but not a big deal, i guess. I’m thinking the nominations would be more likely for season 2 or 3.

    Winter Is Coming,

    Also, did you catch at the end that she’s already got S2 planned in her schedule? It starts when he asks her what she’s working on next. Around 8:55? She says “The next series,” which I believe has already been established as meaning “Season.” If that’s right, it sounds like filming for S2 will begin in Spring (presumably after a Green Light is announced? Knock on wood…)

    I believe she’s the one that GRRM was referring to when he said something like “There’s one bit of casting that was really different from how I had pictured the character, but she’s so good that I may be writing the character differently from now on.”

    Liked the interview a lot. I’ve never seen her in anything but the Harry Potter movies, and I wished she’d been given more to do there.

    Monica at 46

    Will she really age that much in 5 years?

    I still think she is the right age looks wise, mid 30′s and has an aura that not many actresses have. Eva green like many hollywood actresses is too skinny and too young. Also she’s not exactly exotic.

    Gong Li was another brilliant mention for the role, too big an actress though.

    2. I want the TV series to be good. I want to see them capture the feel of the books without making gratuitous stupid changes (like they did in The Two Towers with Faramir, or Sam turning around and going home). I hope the actors do well and they script the scenes well… especially Arya’s since she’s my favorite.

    3. Superb special effects ( direwolves, dragons, mammoths, wildlings, the others, battles etc).

    Yeah, just Google “Series means Season” and you get a lot of responses that this is the case in the UK. I’m sure someone has brought it up here before.

    It’s kind-of the rule that it used to be ‘series’ in the UK and ‘season’ in the USA. However, ever since American shows started airing in the UK regularly back in the 1960s, ‘season’ has become much more common here as well, especially since VHS and DVD box-sets of American shows called ‘Season 1′, ‘Season 2′ etc. Today the two terms are interchangeable.

    2. My friends will agree
    3. The ratings will be so good that they order several seasons immediately

    Agreed ADWD – lets face it, unless himself actually does some writing HBO will catch him up pretty soon, and have to finish the story themselves!!? Also the DVD box set of GoT as I live in the middle of nowhere, with no Cable and no Sky subscription – guess xmas 2011 will be the earliest I`ll get to see Thrones?

    Hmm. My wishes are mostly the same as everyone else’s (season 2, to be impressed by s1, ADwD, good ratings, etc).

    To keep it interesting, here are some others:

    1. They cast a suitable, talented, unknown actress as Brienne and don’t pretty up the character.
    2. The Dothraki turn out to be awesome in the actual show, they succeed at capturing my imagination and all my fears are completely unfounded.
    3. Whoever is cast in the wished-for second-season, they are enthusiastic about the project and fall in love with their characters the same way we all have.

    gintim,
    I live in a country where HBO isn’t available, so to watch it next day after airing I’ll torrent it (there are places where they put new episodes in 720p several hours after release in US), as I do with all other shows I watch, but I’ll of course will buy blu-ray as soon as it’ll be available. Personally I think this is a problem of outdated media distribution system, failing to keep up with the progress, I just can’t understand why so many media is “meant to be” US-only, why they are putting these artificial barriers for people from other countries, and I believe that justifies torrenting.

    My only wish is a verry quick distribution of the show on french TV (the best would be at the same time as HBO)!!! Thanks to WiC who saved a lot of my days from boredom this past year!!

    My ASOIAF wishes:

    1. A Dance with Dragons! (featuring a very detailed Theon torture/comeuppance scene. Heck, lets have a Greyjoy genocide, in which only Asha survives and gets with Dany for hot, empowered lesbian love on dragon-back…)

    2. I am cast in HBO’s Game of Thrones. As Asha Greyjoy. Heh.

    3. Game of Thrones is the #1 show of the year. Emmies and ratings galore…

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday!

    GOT Christmas Wish #1 That the show is a good as we all hope it is!

    My mom was so cute yesterday. She was all apologetic because she looked all over for a Game of Thrones calendar and couldn’t find one.

    reedgirl,

    All very interesting wishes coming from a Reed. If they age up Meera, it could be a threesome. (Sorry, Bran. You’ll have to get a crush on some other girl.)

    OT, but why do the Reeds have such a bastardly name (Snow, Rivers, Stone, etc.) when they are clearly highborn?

    (…as highborn as one can get, being from a swamp. Maybe they give a nobility title to anyone who manages to have a surname.)

    Okay, maybe they just fall under the “Not highborn but well-respected” list. But I always thought the name sounded curious.

    1. A Dance with Dragons
    2. Season two greenlight!
    3. Emmy nom for Best Series-Drama

    And basically for the show to be excellent beyond our wildest dreams.

    gintim: Ana Carolina S.,
    guess xmas 2011 will be the earliest I`ll get to see Thrones?    

    This post will probably get deleted.

    Why don’t you just torrent it like everyone else who doesn’t have HBO? Then you’ll get to see it when it comes out, and besides, not like you’re not going to buy the DVDs anyway, right ? :)

    About Yea High,

    The Reeds are so high up on the food-chain, they don’t need fancy surnames. The frog-eating/swamp-living is just to keep the lesser mortals (read: shallow, short-sighted, ultimately doomed Westerosi) away! You’ll see it happen when they whip out their ‘Children of the Forest’ t-shirts and get their Ents on the move… ;)

    In all seriousness, the Reeds do appear to be the ‘mystics/ethereal mortals’ of the Seven Kingdoms. On my second read of CoK I started to wonder if Howland Reed could warg. It’s mentioned that Howland’s ‘intervention’ was the only reason Eddard survived the fight with Arthur Dayne at the Tower of Joy. Now I am assuming a lot – that Howland is small like his children, and not necessarily a warrior with Dayne’s/Eddard’s prowess. If he warged into something that Dayne did not expect, it might count for the vague description of Howland’s assistance at the ToJ. Then again, he might have thrown his frog-net over Dayne and Ned simply stuck him through before he got himself stuck-through.

    (Although the Reeds are my favorites, at 5’11″/178cm tall, there’s no way I’d ever get the role of Meera. The threesome would be a-okay with me though – plenty of room on Drogon’s back for a few more consenting adults…)

    Ofttimes I have sat and tried to picture how the Tower of Joy sword fight played out.

    I always imagined that the Kingsguard in their arrogance, underestimated the little Crannogman (lacking armor, and armor-penetrating weaponry) and Reed seeming like a wise and cunning man took advantage of this. Having the advantage of speed and mobility, would have kept a clear distance if assaulted by one of the Kingsguard and probably kept on the edges of the fight, striking sparingly and opportunisticly, aiming to throw his opponents off balance to give the others an advantage

    Blackfish Blues,
    whoops, sorry, in my enthusiasm I accidentally posted my wish list for the coming DECADE :D

    For the coming year, here are a fangirl’s wishes:

    - A charismatic, ironic and handsome actor for the Blackfish.
    - Maege Mormont! An Imelda Staunton type
    - Discovering they put the Tower of Joy as a flashback in S1, with Julian Sands in an uncredited cameo as Arthur Dayne.
    - A season 1 I can truly like (little doubt about it)
    - Announcing S2 and maybe 3.
    - Lots of costumes and banners I can copy and bring to conventions :D
    - Everything all the others said!
