If you aren't watching A Game of Thrones, you probably shouldn't read this blog. You need to find some culture.
George R.R. Martin is a genius. And I'm not just saying that because I'm producing his novella The Skin Trade. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss are my two favorite fantasy/horror authors and their books/shorts are amazing.
The first episode did a lot of setting things up - and ended with a bang. Hoping they continue to drive forward... going to be a sweet series.
