Re: Game of Thrones and other TV shenanigans
Didn't watch BE, but GoT and Walking Dead are far below series such as the Wire for me. It's not even comparable. GoT is an okay adaptation, but nothing too awesome; the book overshadows it so much it isn't even funny. The Walking Dead, I dunno. The first episode the the best pilot ever (in any series), but right after that I didn't like it that much. The end of season 1 and whole of season 2 were pretty bad for me.
Rome is good. That series is another story.
