    Debut on: April 17, 2011
    This up coming HBO series is based off the following books but who know how closly they will follow them:
    A Game of Thrones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The official HBO page is here
    HBO: Game of Thrones: Homepage

    Political intrigue, infighting and duplicit acts wrapped in a warm cloke of sex and violence carried out close quaters...It took a different character of man to live in such times and stay alive...toss in a heavy dose of Lena Heady (Sara Conner Chronicles) Sean Bean (Lord Of The Rings) and HBO could have another winner on its hands.

    I am looking forward to this one are you?

    I could of sworn that when True Blood was announced, you said "doesn't interest me".... ;)

    In any event, I generally watch the first episode of many shows, because the plot line has nothing to do with what makes a TV show (or movie) good.

    For example, I could easily imagine a really bad TV show with the exact description of True Blood.

    Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting what they do with the second season of Treme (a show unique in that it would still be enjoyable even if your LCD died at the start).

    NOPE! I love True Blood. It is a very cool show that combines sex, violence and the supernatural all together. I just wish I didn't have to Pay $16.00 a month to get it. I could just buy each episode on Amazon.com as it comes out.

    You can wait a year and get it. They have been releasing the prior season right before the next season starts.

    Another great episode. The premium networks sure know how to build a great series. Same with the likes of AMC.. NBC/ABC/CBS/FOX Pay attention.

    Great episode. Much slower pace, but the strategizing and games are key to the story.
