I knew the series was going to be something special when Sean Bean got whacked in the first season because Sean’s tha man, so for him to go out so soon, you knew all hell was going to break loose.
I honestly didn’t believe it all the way until his head was actually chopped off.
I’m a video editor, so nothing at all surprises me about 99% of what I watch on television, but I was literally scanning every corner of the screen for where the SAVE was going to come from, and Sean would continue in the series after this close call and CHOP!!! :O \o/
At some point, I read the “Cliff’s Notes” of how the story went in the books, as I wasn’t interested enough to read the books, but I was too interested to wait for this series to play out for years and years.
