Winter is Coming
This is the first time in a long while that I wish I actually received a television signal. The Game of Thrones series starts tonight on HBO, and if the previews are anything to be trusted, it is going to be good. George R.R. Martin, the author of The Song of Ice and Fire series that the show is based on, is actually involved in the production of the show, as a Co-Executive producer. Their cast includes Sean Bean as Ned Stark. The sets and effects in the clips look totally realistic and appropriate. All of these are good signs to me, since I love the books. I guess I had best pick up the last book, even if I know reading it will mean I pay no attention to anything else until I'm done.
