I’ve been enjoying the hell out of AMC’s “The Walking Dead Series”. Unfortunately, it’s a short season. I’m not too worried though because I have George R. R. Martin’s “Game of Thrones” series coming to HBO.
Its been a few years since I last read a Martin book. They’re great fantasy fare to be sure but they are DENSE. (As in thickness, not intelligence.) I do remember most of the main cast and plot lines however. Being honest, I’ve yet to read the last book. With the speed at which Martin’s writing though, it’s okay. I’ve got a few years yet before the next one releases.
With HBO’s track record and the preview clips that keep coming out, it looks like it could be a pretty grand affair. The cast looks stellar; Sean Bean as Eddard Stark? Hell yes! Lena Heady as Cersei Lannister? Rawr. Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister? Hell yes again!
So far, I’m enjoying the hell out of the recent spate of my favorite books being turned into TV Series. If the Syfy Channel ever gets their ass in gear with that rumored Forever War mini-series? I may pee a little.
