I mentioned the upcoming A Game of Thrones TV series on HBO before. If you haven't read the books, please do so. Either way, check it out next spring. The project is a full go, currently in production, and looks amazing.
Also, if you haven't seen Boardwalk Empire, which premiered last Sun night on HBO - do so. Past products like The Wire, Sopranos and Deadwood, coupled with HBOs current commitment to developing new cutting edge shows will keep me coming back again and again.
