Currently, I am loving HBO's Game of Thrones. There is a bug here and there (beware: whores and brothels overload), but on the whole, this is a very close and very good adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire book series. I reached the point that when I think about the characters and speculate about the possible new developments in the new book, "A Dance with Dragons", I imagine the faces of the actors. As far as shows go, this is also an amazingly intelligent watching. To put this in context, The Wire, Generation Kill, The Killing (Forbrydelsen) , The Devil (Mawang) and The Slave Hunters (Chuno) are better shows in my opinion, but Game of Thrones is getting close.

Why should you be watching "Game of Thrones" if you are not already watching it?

1. This is a fantasy show! How many fantasy shows (I do not count Vampyre Shows here) do you know? They are few and far between!

2. It has cold Wraiths! And possibly dragons! (dragon eggs so far) Pictures )

3. It has some of the most fabulous female characters You Have Ever Seen, of all ages! Pictures )

4. It has some wonderfully gorgeous men Pictures )

5. It has some wonderfully witty men Pictures )

6. It has some wonderfully noble men (mostly played by Sean Bean) Pictures )

7. It has tournaments and sword fights Pictures )

8. It even has m/m romance ! Pictures )

9. It has direwolves! Pictures )

10. It has most awesome evil characters, in abundance! Pictures )

11. It has many smaller, well developed characters Pictures )

12. The show has several themes that might be triggery for some, but I think it handles them with care.

13. You don’t have to be a fan of the books, in fact, you probably will enjoy the show much more if you are unspoiled
