It's moving a little slow for me, but it's early in the season still.

But it was a feast for the eyes :-D
The sex and nudity is even better than True Blood.
Also more Tyrion means more better.

I liked Game of Thrones last year but I felt lost half the time with all the characters especially since the stories weren't meshed together yet. This season has been fantastic now that all of the plots are starting to come together. For those who read the books, I have a feeling you loved that they didn't dumb it down by introducing characters and over explaining everything. For us who hadn't, patience was the key and it's developed into one of the best shows in quite awhile.

downloaded the first three seasons of Justified after seeing the previews all the time on FX.

Far better than I thought it was going to be. Timothy Oliphant is awesome in everything and especially great in this. His main antagonist who plays Boyd Crowder is also great.

Really solid This last season had an amazing villian.

I downloaded Avatar: The Last Airbender over winter break on a whim (remembered it from late childhood when I stopped watching kids' shows for the most part), and finally got around to watching it a couple weeks ago. Just finished it, and it was sensational. Given the trends in this topic, I doubt this will get much attention, but this show is legit.

Ignore the M. Night Shyamalan film though. I am.

Almost done with the first book. Expecting to be disappointed with the TV series.

Game of Thrones is so damn good.

Tyrion ftw. Also Robb has really grown on me and Jon Snow is awesome. I find myself strangly rooting for Dany as well O:-)

The only not awesome thing about Game of Thrones is that it's on Sunday nights. I've never understood why HBO shows are on Sundays.

Here's my favorite shows on right now (not all are airing right now). HBO is really, really good right now.

1. Game of Thrones- #1 easy
2. Big Bang Theory- Still makes me laugh out loud every episode. I thought this one would go downhill but it hasn't.
3. Treme- Long hiatus, but the characters are second only to GOT.
4. Girls- It's early, but I've really enjoyed this. A lot of people are saying it's unrealistic but a lot of the characters remind me of people I hung around in college.
5. How I Met Your Mother- This one is going downhill fast, but I think they know that and are making steps to resolve the plot. It still has great moments though.
6. Happy Endings- I just marathoned the first season a few weeks ago and I really like it. Haven't watched the second season yet.
7. South Park- It's definitely not in it's prime, but there are still awesome episodes.
8. Downton Abbey- :-o Ok, this is more of a miniseries and it's very soap opera-ish. I stayed away from it for a long time because I thought it would be a typical British drama but it kind of takes the best elements of American and British prime time soaps and the characters are pretty enjoyable to watch. I laughed at my wife when she was watching it but I got sucked in.
9. The Simpsons- This makes the list because right after their 400th episode they had two fantastic shows and I thought the writers got an 8th wind. It went downhill again but they deserve a spot, because I still find time to watch it and they had a second there where it was still worth watching.
10. Saturday Night Live- Sketch comedy is hit or miss. I think that's what a lot of people don't get, and it's been about 30 years now that people have been saying SNL is dead. Yet all kinds of sketches from every one of those seasons are considered classic SNL now. You just have to go into it knowing your going to find about 2-3 of the sketches funny, Weekend Update might be good and the musical guest probably is going to suck. It's a lot easier to watch with a DVR.
