Top 10: Reasons to watch the third season of ‘Game of Thrones’ [SLIDESHOW]

The fantasy genre isn’t for everyone. However, the creators of the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones” have found something for everyone by including fantasy with excessive violence and gratuitous sex.

Every other scene is either some steamy, erotic scene — usually involving prostitutes — or a bloody and violent battle scene. Some might call that win-win.

So as you debate how to spend your Sunday nights this spring, consider indulging you inner-fantasy nerd with the best the TV has to offer.

The third season of “Game of Thrones” premieres Sunday, March 31 on HBO.
