Wow, Ron, you caught up quick! Seems like the other day you were on season 3! I've been watching from the beginning, and I never read the books. My wife and I enjoy The Lord of the Rings, and George R.R. Martin is from my hometown, and we like Sean Bean. So those were the things that brought us in. But yeah, we were hooked with the first episode. In all the episodes that followed, there was maybe 1 that I felt was a bit of a disappointment. One out of 67 is pretty damn good. I am looking forward to the last season like everyone else, but also to the blu-ray release, so we can watch the entire show in order in 2 or 3 months (we only average one a night), instead of 8 or 9 years. I did that recently with my kids and 19 Marvel films, and it's very rewarding to see things connect together the way they do. In Game of Thrones, with its very complicated subplots, I suspect it will be even more rewarding.
