Had fun at the Flames/Jackets game. There were some Jets fans close to me who stood up and cheered for every goal for both teams.

They did however, say many nice things about the Jets, and there were 4+ Go Jets Go chants during the show.

It kinda makes me feel sorry for them, rather than like them less. Poor Leafs fans.

Damn. My only saviour is claiming some of my 60% tuition rebate. Which is confusing as hell to try and claim. Which means I have two phone calls monday morning since I can't find my assessment from last year. Owe almost a grand but get $410 back for GST. Don't get that

Political character driven drama...with some swords thrown in (couple of dragons and zombies as well ). Best I can do. Some people get hung up about the time frame (medieval era technology) or the little bit of fantasy included (little bit of magic, dragons, zombies) but really this show is about the characters. This is NOT a hero tale, every single character is a shade of grey, this about realistic characters at it's core.

Best show on TV and it's not even close.

BB and WD are solid shows...but they have nothing on GoT, IMO.

Do you miss anything by not having read the books?

Nah. I watched Season 1 before reading the books. I was so hooked that I read the books after that (I love reading though).

But it is in no way necessary to read the books. There is not a lot of differences in reality, other than reducing the cast a little bit and some minor changes (some good, some bad) but overall very similar. All in all, you're not missing anything.

It's a HUGE cast though, so it is hard to get into right away. Give it at very least 3-4 episodes. It is hard to keep track of all the characters and storylines early on (starts with 3/4 completely seperate storylines and only fractures from there). But once you start to understand them and get invested it is totally worth it.

Honestly, i'd recommend watching the show before you read the books, so you'r not comparing how they're different

I would like to say RIP to the kazakh hockey player who was killed due to a hit to the head in a kazakh league play off game. Events like that are just tragic

Lynk did you ever watch "The Wire"? I picked up on it after some of the boys on this board recommended it. Possibly the best TV drama I have ever seen. I am about 4 episodes into season 2.
