I am addicted to HBO Original Series. My addiction began when I started watching Six Feet Under while on summer break from college. I've always had this healthy fascination with the macabre, so a show about a family that runs a funeral home was right up my alley. That show was fantastic; the writing was witty, the characters well developed and three dimensional, the acting was superb (I've been HUGE Michael C. Hall, Peter Krause & Frances Conroy fans ever since) and the plot lines were complex and engaging. I've come to realize that this awesomeness is par for HBO. They spend the time and money on their shows. They pour in love and dedication and the results are excellent. I love current shows like True Blood, Treme and Boardwalk Empire (and we're only 2 episodes in!). Sean and I recently finished watching the raw, brutal and amazing series, The Wire, which is further evidence that HBO is simply the best.
$7.99. I promise that you wont be disappointed.
These books are PERFECT source material for an HBO series. And Martin is heavily involved, so I have no doubt that the book-reading audience will be happy. The series premiers in 2011 and you can bet that Sean and I will be hosting a party for it. Winter is Coming, ladies and gentlemen, and it's going to be stellar!
