I'm not generally much for that either ... but this is not your average shit in that genre.

In fact, although I'm an avid reader, when I read an article 10 years ago that HBO was planning the series based on the books I had no idea what they were.

I picked up the first book and found it to be a fantasy not for the kiddies.

Like I said ... even if you aren't all that interested in dragons ... it's loaded with violence and sex. And there's plenty of nefarious plotting to provide the drama you crave.

I was in a pretty decent sized office. We talked about BB, Saul, Fargo, True Detective, even Lost back in the day (not my thing, but people watched it). Honestly, the show never came up that I heard.

Of course, if I did hear a bunch of dudes talking about wizards, dragons and dwarfs, it's highly probable that I turned up the music and checked out of the conversation. So I guess it's possible I know someone who watched it and just have no awareness of it.

No, but that works out for me okay... I still have to binge watch the whole last season.

Did you see that Chris Rock is starring in the new Fargo?

Set in the early 60s in Kansas City. Pretty sure that means Rock is playing Mike Milligan's old man.

I love the show. One of my all time favorites. However, I don’t know who the fuck is who 1/2 the time their name is spoken if they’re not sharing screen time at that exact moment.

LOST ME. I TRIED. WHEN THAT BLACK MISTMAN SHOWS UP OUT OF THAT REDHEAD I PRETTY MUCH HAD ENOUGH. NOT MY THING.

All I cared about the Red Woman was that she had a smoking hot bod, and there needed to be more scenes with her naked.

I try to stop proselytizing people on TV. There's a lot of it and it can be really time consuming. If someone asks or seems wanting, I will offer an something I've seen or accept the same, but it's just not worth it to convince someone anymore. Plus, so many shows start or even hit a stride before they sorta peak and collapse into something weak - it's annoying to invest before you're ultimately watching the final seasons just to get an ending. Even then, I'll still dump some shows (Walking Dead comes to mind).

I will say that GoT is probably the biggest appointment show since BB and I'm beginning to think with all the streaming that it might be the last one left for a while. If that's your thing, then enjoy this moment of the zeitgeist - they're rare as is, but I think they'll be rarer.

There's also something to be said for an ending, which so many other properties (star wars) seem unwilling to do now because it kills the golden goose.

GOT may be ending in name but there's already a spinoff in the works. something that predates the white walkers i believe.

Should call it Jerruh's World.
