    GoT is consistent when it starts, I believe it starts the first sunday in April every year. It is 42 weeks in between the finale and premier, so it does seem like a long time.

    Quality television with such difficult settings takes time to produce. I am happy with how they do it.

    The biggest bummer about GoT is the fact Martin has still not completed book 6 and it doesn't seem like it will be released any time soon. Many believe HBO is going to catch up to him before finishes the source material. I think things are going to get nasty between Corporate HBO and Artist George RR Martin.

    I don't think it will, I would be shocked if HBO doesn't have the legal right to move past the books. And honestly, I'd be fine with that. This is a very rare case where the tv show is probably the superior product (and I like the books, but there it is.)

    From what I have read, Martin gave a basic outline on how he wants the story to end to the producers of the show. I don't think HBO will be left in the dark.

    I strongly disagree with this.

    The tv show benefits from a tighter story (or maybe you care about Dornish princes and Cersei and the endless crap we have to wade through in the newest books more than I do.) Martin is a great writer, but he's lost his way. I don't think he is capable of finishing anymore. Hope I'm wrong.

    I actually do like all the side stories and really enjoy how Martin fleshes out minor characters.

    I also feel like my favorite story line, Arya, has not been pursued enough. I think the tv show spent too much time on Robb, when he really is not a major character in the books.

    I have a feeling Arya is going to have some major face time in the remaining seasons.

    I think you are right, if they do not it will be a real shame because her storyline in books 4 and 5 is excellent.

    I think the ending of How I Met Your Mother was weak. I do not know how you conclude your show with a episode like that in the golden era of TV.

    The Americans this season has been strong. I like it better then SOA now.

    Yeah I hated that ending. He is no way needed to end up with Robin. I guess I can see that ending if they had only gone for 3 or 4 seasons, but after 9 seasons and all the history and investment into the characters it just seemed weak.

    On the other hand, I loved the finale of The Walking Dead. This season started off very very weak for me, but the last 3 episodes I thought were as strong as any the show has put out.

    That first episode of Mad Men was crazy. I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't watched it yet but oh that Donnie Drapes really stuck his pickle in it this time.
