Game of Thrones, HBO series
I'm happy to see the return of HBO's "Treme", of course. It really is about the best new television out there right now, for me at least.

But the new series "Game of Thrones" looks like it won't have to do much to be a weekly "record if it's on too late" show now. I'm a sucker for period pieces and the preview make this look a lot less groan-worthy than most attempts in this direction I've seen.

It premiers Arpril 17th.

Peter Dinklage, Sean Bean, Aiden Gillen, Lena Heady -- it's gonna be impressive for the talent alone. And if you haven't read the books... well, hang on to your hats, because it's quite the ride.

I just started the books because of the impressive cast. I'm midway into the second novel, and I have only one word: Wow.

Second one, huh? You ain't seen nothing yet!

The previews make it look like it might actually be interesting. I don't tend to know writers by their reputation, I just hope it has good writing. HBO sometimes has very well-produced, talent-filled tripe. But even their semi-successfull attempts can prove highly entertaining.

I guess I'll find out in a week and... some days. The darned thing is probably broadcast after I can watch it. :lol:

I was gonna watch this first to see if I liked it & then maybe pick up the books. The problem is... I don't have HBO though, so I don't know when I'd get a chance to watch it.

Hopefully they'll put it on Netflix like they did Spartacus.

I read a little about the books when the trailer for this first came out and I'm not sure if I'd like it. Way too many characters for me... that normally throws me off.

HBO is pretty expensive. I've almost given it up this year and last, but their shows are the main ones I watch, when they are in production.

I can do without gasoline. I'll start hitch-hiking on the highway to get to work. :bolian:

I go back & forth... when you have the channels there's never anything on. When you don't there's always one or two things you want to watch. & I hate when you have like 500 channels the crap that is on is on at different times all over the place.

Yea, it seems like that sometimes. (Nothing good on t.v. helps me get caught up on my DVR recordings, though. :D)

Book THREE is by far my favorite of the 4 out so far. I love the new perspectives. =)

I cannot wait! It's a huge countdown in this house.
