Okay ... I know this is late, since Game of Thrones has been on for 7 seasons. Wife, especially, didn't care to watch it. I was ambivalent, being more into sci-fi than fantasy.
I also know there's a huge following, and I'm not saying anything new.
But I have to say it ... WOW !!!
Wife and I started watching season 1 Sunday afternoon. We watched 4 episodes before I had to start preparing for work. She asked me to stay home Monday, so we could continue watching episodes. I couldn't. We watched another 4 episode last night after I got home from work. Each episode is better than the last and we are solidly hooked.
If you're a fan, we understand, now. If you've been putting off watching it, don't. It is WELL WORTH all the acclaim it's getting and all the awards it's won.
Anyone else, here, a fan ???
