Quick Take on HBO's Game of Thrones

Seriously? I've only posted once this whole month? There goes my theory that more time = more blog posts. Just so I don't end the month with only one post to show for it, I'm going to share my latest discovery.

HBO's new Game of Thrones series has me completely hooked from the first episode. In fact, I was so impressed with it, I watched the first episode three times and the second episode twice (so far). I've been trying to steer clear of any book series that's not finished (I didn't read the Harry Potter books until the 7th was released), but I may have to make an exception for Mr. George R. R. Martin and his A Song of Ice and Fire series.

The second episode also gave me my new favorite quote, as delivered by Tyrion Lannister: "A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone..."


  1. I read that it was picked up for a whole 'nother season based solely on the first episode.

  2. It was a strong first episode, to be sure, and each episode thus far has been amazing. I can't wait to see how things unfold as the season progresses!
