I have to thank Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan for getting me hooked on Game of Thrones. He'd read the books and couldn't wait until the show aired. I'm trying to read book one in the series, but it's slow going (have you seen how huge those books are?) It's fantasy, but not so much fantasy that non-fantasy fans won't enjoy it. The TV series is amazing-wonderful writing and storytelling, a fantastic cast, everything is done so well! My favorite characters are Jon, Arya and Tyrion. Jon because he's a bit sensitive and he's smart (and OK, Jon Snow is pretty cute!), Arya because she kicks butt, and Tyrion because I love his wit and every scene Peter Dinklage is in, he just rocks. I also have hopes that the actress who plays Arya grows up and plays Katsa in a Graceling movie-it would be so perfect! There's a lot to follow, so I'm glad I have Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan to help me. If you do watch it and have questions, he'd be happy to help guide you through the series-you can follow him on Twitter at @crazywriterblog
And really, if you're not watching Game of Thrones, you should be!
My other Sunday night treat-Sherlock. At least for three weeks anyway. I love this updated version of Sherlock Holmes-so much snark and wit and humor-what's not to love?? I also have a bit of a crush on Benedict Cumberbatch!
If you've read my blog before, you know about my obsession with Downton Abbey. Soapy goodness in a historical drama? Yes please!! Season three seems so far away, so I'll re-watch Seasons one and two until I can get more gossip on the abbey!
After everyone telling us about Big Bang Theory forever, Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan and I decided to finally watch it. And I'm not surprised at all to find that we like it! We're always looking for new shows to watch together and hopefully fill the Scrubs-sized hole in our hearts. While it's not my favorite, it's pretty funny and we're working our way through the DVDs to catch up!
So what's your current TV Obsession? Any shows I need to catch up on and start watching? Old favorites I need to check out?
