I did, and I loved it (even tho my husband had to mute the sound off in one section while I closed my eyes. I had trouble reading that part, and didn't need more images in my head to give me nightmares). Acting was superb, dialogue on target. Thought the way they introduced new characters worked well and they did some things in the script that gave viewers information without being blatant about it. So far, so good!

I enjoyed last night's (on Mondays in the UK) episode. I thought they did well with condensing it. I'm sure there are a few changes, though.

A cow pat is a great big dollop of cow poop! Not sure how you'd throw it though.

I watched half of it last night, the only change I can see so far is that they've got Jamie schlepping around with Robb, instead of being incarcerated at Kings' Landing all the time.

I'm enjoying it so far but wish it wasn't in the dark so much :( !

Yes, that bit threw me. I think they've changed the order of some things happening but it's obviously to condense it into so many episodes.
