    Sopranos was awesome. GOT is awful nerd shit.

    The other thing that makes it unique, and the thing that grabbed me from early on, is that the narrative does not play by the same rules as other movies, books, stories and tv shows do. At my son’s urging, I started watching and immediately identified Ned Stark as the hero – partly because he was played by Sean Bean – and figured the story would revolve around him for the life of the series. I remember bolting upright in my seat while watching (I think) episode 9 from season 1 and thinking “Oh my (or words to that effect), I did not see that coming.” No guarantees in life or Game of Thrones.

    It’s Arya Stark not Aria. (Adjusts nerd glasses)

    To be fair Sam knew the section with the books he wanted, and knew the books had to have something very important in them since they were locked up. Also we don’t know how long he was looking thru the book before the scene started.
    My bigger issue is why is Dragonstone abandoned? That’s a freakishly valuable castle. On the southeast shore of Westeros there’s an abandoned castle? Robert would have either claimed that as his when he became king or flattened it to show his absolute power(& that the Targaryen dynasty was dead). I get it, we don’t have the time for them to fight a battle just to get off their boats, but for the Lannister to just let Dany & co. waltz up to the shore and get boots on the ground with no resistance, is imbecilic. What use are the unsullied, or dothraki armies on boats? None. Now put them on land and you’re toast. These writers…yeesh.

    So right Czabe. One of the few TV shows that I’ll watch because of all the sex, violence, story lines, etc., geared to adults with plenty of fantasy mixed in a good way. Its so bad ass like Breaking Bad, Fargo, that you never know when someone will get crushed, an arm cut off, or killed which you never saw coming (Rob at the Red wedding! Hodor). I expect more of the same as the next two seasons are shorter and final seasons of GOT. Expect some epic battles between fire breathing dragons and white walkers and their walking deads. Hop on Czabe for Winter is Here.

    I thought I was only person who watched Breaking Bad after it ended. I was very good about not being “That Guy” who talks up a show long after the fad has passed. Of course it wasn’t that difficult since it seems like everyone where I work only watches The History Channel or The Hallmark Channel.

    I would hate to be The Mountain’s caddie or equipment rep.

    Need to get back on it, I’m in season 3 or 4 where the fancy sword fighter got his eyes squeezed out (whoever the big hercules guy was) in order to save the midget. I didn’t want to see the midget go and I think I had a nightmare of someone squeezing my eyeballs out so I took a break (probably a year now)….will get back into it with late nights of bourbon and binge-watching after this article. LOVE the girl with the dragons and the midget, also love Stark’s kids and hope they somehow work together to capture the throne. Keep up the good work and START A FUCKING PODCAST already.

    Swerve back to the LOTR movies for a bit- I never saw the plodding #2 movie, but I did see the finale #3 movie (The Return of the King). I thought #3 was pretty darn good, so I came here to post because I have not seen/ heard any other listeners reply to your statement on the radio/ blog. You are snake-bit from #2 and eschewed #3, but I think #3 is worth going back and watching. Jon in Indy
