A lot of the backstory and exposition has been cut out. I don't blame them.

Hmmm, maybe I'll read the first book after series 2 is over.

Here's a good summary, if you feel like saving yourself the read. It's very worth it and an excellent book, but not everyone has time for your shit, GRRM.

Remember 10 episodes and its only half of book one.

Then again, I haven't read the books so I could be way off the mark.
Season 1 == Book 1

Season 2 == Book 2

Season 1 covered all of book 1.

It was mostly accurate, but like davo said, they cut a lot of the history and details that expounded on subplots.

It's vague to me right now because it was early on, but when Ned and Robert are talking about Ned's sister I seem to remember there being some suggestion as to whether she was actually kidnapped, as well as after they leave for the hunt (I think) there is some talk about Jon's mother.

I'll have to re-watch those scenes. I don't remember any implications like that.

I mean, the implications aren't HEY HE'S RIGHTFUL KING LOLOL. They're more like HEY, PERHAPS HE ISN'T NED'S BASTARD.
