Even though I truly hated the ending of the original series, there’s no debate at all about whether or not “GoT” was a monumental success for TV.

It 100% was, and the early season, which I’m rewatching, are some of the best TV ever made. Now, Martin will start writing more stories for HBO.

If that doesn’t have you excited, then you simply don’t know great content when you see it.
