    Its cable. Quality matters more than ratings for HBO.


    This isn't a matter of "I and others agree with me", this is strictly about good writers and where do they take us with their story (I'm sorry but there's no room for "boring" manipulation possible).

    I agree that Game of Thrones has too many characters to keep up with for people who don't read the books. I had to keep looking on Wikipedia for characters when I got confused. They should only introduce a new character if it is ABSOLUTELY necessary from the book. If they have to introduce a character briefly for later on, at least introduce them a bit more! Other than not understanding the characters, I love the show. That's why I want them to make it a bit easier to follow; so I can enjoy the show to max potential.

    There is nothing boring regarding the show but it all comes down to taste and patience to enjow most good shows from HBO, there is the need to buildup for any arc before it delivers and most of the shows content is from the books, it will be easier for you read the books first and understand the concept before watching the show as u appreciate it more.

    Well, thanks for the insult 'Chips', I guess that's all you're capable of. But, let's be honest, the only thing lame here is your opinion. Berating GOT in any shape or form is idiocy of the highest order, and you are chairman.

    Well, season 2 is done, now for season 3.


    I don't know why people say that you should read the books for the series to make sense. Just watch it twice In preparation for season 3 I just watched the first 2 seasons a second time, one episode per day, and I realized I missed so many faces and things the first time around. Yes there are many characters, and obviously if you've read the book you're ok, but even if you haven't (like me), just watch it again!
