HBO Sundays at 8 central time. Bit late to get into it now lol, season finale is this week. Buy the Season 1 DVD/blu ray if you want. There are however less expensive, somewhat frowned upon ways to check out all the episodes... which might or might not be how I watch it...
I too enjoyed the moments between Tywin and Arya, the fact that he was growing so fond of the enemy really drove home the reason the war is so tragic. I really don't think they could do all that character interaction building just to end it like that though, but that might just be wishful thinking. If anything the next time they see each other will be when/if she's revealed as a Stark to him.
I agree though, it has been odd watching Jon Snow just walking about the frozen wastelands of the north. Not very exciting, partly because of the fact that it so far from anything that we actually care about. Has nothing to do with any of the 5 kings, no effect on any core/favorite characters, and has so far just been boring to watch. Which makes me wonder what people were talking about when they said "Jon Snow actually gets to do something in season 2" before it started. He hasn't really done anything and it's the end of the season already. Oh well, can't wait for the season finale this week!
I saw S1 on DVD -- Bean was so good, as was basically all of it. I don't have HBO, so I'm lagging on it. I have read the books. I surely hope good old G. RailRoad Martin finishes them.
For those regarding Jon:
First off, I have a fondness for H-less Jons. Second, he gets to do a LOT over the next little while -- maybe not so much this season, but he definitely gets a ton of character time. (DID I SAY SPOILER ALERT -- YOU WERE WARNED)
Then he..... (FINAL SPOILER ALERT)
(Intermittent Spoiler: Who is Jon's Mother? Is it Rhaegar's sister? Is he Targaryen blood?)
NOTE: SPOILER IMMINENT
------------------YOU WERE WARNED-----------------------
............................................................Dies. Don't they all? Well, he doesn't *necessarily* die, but he leaves any corporeal form as we know him. It's near the end of Dance With Dragons, the 5th book. From the preamble chapter of that book, we can assume he will inhabit the body of some animal -- possibly.... hmmmm... Ghost? Or, maybe he comes back as a corpse-zombie-thingie like Caetlyn -- probably not. Anyway, it remains to be seen, and it saddened me quite a bit.

But... what real threat do the Kingdoms face? What's the meta-story? I grok that this season may have enraptured people with the War of the 5 Kings, but what is lurking beyond while they jockey about their petty Game of Thrones? Jon's facing the real shiznit. Maybe he should bed a wildling to learn more?
On the show, has he fought half-hand yet?
