A 9, probably the best show on TV. But I wouldn't watch it this Sunday if you haven't seen any of the prior seasons. There's too many characters with plotlines in motion to just walk into the show now, imo.

RE: OT: Game of Thrones
Watched the first 2 seasons, then read all 5 books in about 3 months. Eagerly awaiting books 6 and 7. I've got the mug, t-shirt, and letter-opener sword.

If they keep true to following the book's storyline like they've been doing, and don't run out of money, they've got several seasons worth of material to produce from. It's just crazy what this show could become!

This season, coming from the first half of book 3, has extremely good potential. I won't reveal anything. No spoilers here, but a wild, fun ride is coming. So just enjoy!

Go to HBO.com and find the interactive map of Westeros. It gives you a good "grasp" of George R. R. Martin's fantasy world. LOL!

RE: OT: Game of Thrones - Potential Spoilers
If I were to put a number to this show, it would be 9ish. I tend to make the claim that many things are the 'best show on television', so I should just say that I'm happy this doesn't share a timeslot with another popular show because that show would never be watched by me. It is in the same category with Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Dexter, and Doctor Who for me.

BTW, the new Who episode comes on tonight. Pretty dang excited.

It only shares with TWD for a week and I don't care for Mad Men. I guess I should've said popular with me.

Wasn't there a preview of Dany and her dragons? I thought I saw that. That whole scene (and sequence with Dany, since she's my favorite alive character) will be the highlight of the season for me, I'm sure.

A ten hour season can't compare to a full length book, but the makers of the show have done a great job. No way the show is only a 5. Rate the show on its own merit, not in comparison to the books.
