Wow. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" is my hands down favorite series of the Fantasy genre, which is saying a lot because I have read ton's (including the big series' coming from Tolken and Jordan to drop some big names). Martin is a master, he must spend years just crafting the ways characters could meet and interact before even putting a pen to paper. If you like stories with intriguing, character lead plot lines that somehow manage to twist and surprise, this series is for you, even if you aren't typically into this genre.
HBO picks shows well too. Sopranos and Deadwood (R.I.P.) both knocked my socks off. I am still enthralled with Curb Your Enthusiasm and Entourage, and Rome was decent as well.
Unfortunately, Troy blew chunks and could arguably be said to have been the same genre as this show (and it was apparently written by Benioff, the writer for this series) and I havent seen the newest X-Men, hopefully it was good... Still, Benioff is probably only getting better and maybe he will thrive in the TV world rather than in movies.
Overall, my guess is that this combination will produce one awesome show. HBO, I will be watching!!!
