I am a huge fan of the show. I found it very confusing at first as I couldn't keep track of the large amount of characters and how they were all related, but I have a handle on pretty much everything now. Very entertaining show, and I love all the violence. Especially the beheading of the horse. One of the most badass things I've ever seen. The story has really started to pick up over the last couple of weeks. I can't wait to see what happens tonight (the seventh episode airs tonight in the UK).
My favourite characters are Tyrion and Robert. They are both hilarious when they want to be. Arya is a really cool character as well.
