[Yeah, yeah. I’m sure I’m not the first person to make that pun.]
Game of Thrones season 3 premieres tonight on HBO. Viewers haven’t been anticipating a series this eagerly since … Downton Abbey. (I didn’t like Rose Leslie’s character in that show either.) Or possibly the “Who shot J.R.?” season of Dallas. But most GoT fans are probably too young to remember that.
I have a love/hate relationship with the show. No, make that a like/hate relationship. I’m not nerd enough to love it. Yes, it’s well done, but I also think it’s highly overrated. Just because a series is fraught with gore and nudity doesn’t make it a masterpiece. In fact, it sort of makes it porn. Ok, soft porn.
The verdict is still out on whether I’ll cover the show or not. We’ll see after tonight. Since many shows are more enjoyable with wine, I bought some to have with the show. Red, because it seems appropriate.
If you love the show and would like to write about it, leave a comment (with a valid email address) stating so. There’s always room for more authors here. And no, you don’t have to be a chick.
