For those of you who may not have heard, the new season of Game of Thrones will premier April 1, 2012. This series by HBO is fantastic and the books are even better. Do yourself a favor and watch the first season, and then read the books. It has been a long time since I have been very excited for a new series on TV, but after reading all of the books I am going to predict that this may be the biggest series on TV ever when they are done. George R.R. Martin is the 21st century Tolkien of our era, and once his masterpiece is finished his name will forever be remembered.
