Wow, the music for the opeing credits is great. I can't actually watch the programme, a bit creepy and violent for my taste, but of the little I have seen it is beautifully shot.

Have a peep at the opening theme here;

Enjoy!

My brother and his fiance like it so much they want it played at their wedding next year. Unfortunately I'm 1/3 of the string trio that had to find/arrange a suitable version and play it! Having read the first book and part of the second (gave up in the end) I wouldn't choose it as the theme for my wedding, but I agree it is nice music. The wedding invitation was a Magic The Gathering card, so I 'm guessing it's going to be a bit 'different' anyway!

In reply to Sarah G: It is great - one of the few TV opening sequences I watch each time, instead of fast forwarding to the start of the episode :)

I see a mate of mine on mondays, and as she always watches this programme, we watch the opening sequence then it's my cue to leave! The glowy-eyed zombies did it for me in the first episode, and the cutting off of the horse's head did it for me the other week. It's not the gore- just the general creepiness and violence. Otherwise it looks really, really good.

Its a shame that it creeps you out, because there is a lot more to the series but you really can't get away from the violence in it (or the gratuitous sex scenes)

Do you know the character Ramsey the Bastard from the books? A good friend of mine is playing him in the next series. According to him Mr Bastard is a bit of an 'orrible bloke.
Not long ag he had to fly to ireland to practice peeling the skin off a prosthetic finger then fly home again.
In reply to PixieNinja: The early books are BRILLIANT, but I stopped reading at Storm of Swords (part II). It was already getting waffly and less and less was happening with each chapter, and I understand it just gets worse from there on in... ?

I don't want to struggle on to book 10 and get more and more bored, ala Robert Jordan and 'The Wheel of Time' :(

In reply to muttley_109: Yea i know the character, i think he's in the middle books...possibly the later couple as well. He's not really a character I've paid much attention to (as yes he is a bastard) and does also enjoy a good flaying.
So jealous of your friend! both for the being part of it and also awesome scenery. Nearly applied for a storyboard artist job for it but had only just started reading the books.

@ Nick- I would agree that book 3 is slow, although i still enjoyed it they are probably my least favorite of the series. I really enjoyed 4 and 5 if you can cope with the story being told geographically rather than chronologically.

I have never read any of the wheel of time- big series to try to get into. although i have heard that Brendan Sanderson did a good job with it, and i rate him as a writer.
