Fantastic news - HBO have given the green light to a full series based on GRRM's A Game of Thrones.
They've also released a still from the production (think this is a shot of one of the Night Watch (Royce?) finding the dead wildlings, as they do in the prologue to A Game of Thrones. Looks pretty cool.

I'm not surprised by this news, I was always confident that the series would get picked up. Still, it's fantastic news and I'm really looking forward to see how it turns out.
