I just watched the first episode of season two of Game of Thrones on HBO. It was very powerful and awesome. I loved the writing and the acting. The cast is amazing and every performance is top notch. The first three books of George Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series are awesome, and watching this show makes me want to read them all over again.
If you haven't read the books, or seen the show, I highly recommend you watch the show, and at least read book one.
