“Game of Thrones” is my favorite HBO show ever, and it really goes to show that David Benioff and Dan (D.B.) Weiss, who produced “Troy” know very well how to bring epic stories to viewers. The early episodes of Season 3 contain another sign of premium-cable conformity: plots or situations that address themes of slavery, women’s empowerment and sexual orientation in obvious, heavy-handed ways, particularly for a show set in a medieval fantasy world.
And fans will love Tyrion this season, who won’t have a majority of plotline, but Peter Dinklage will prove why he deserves every award a TV leading man should get. In fact, they are all fun to watch, even when their characters don’t have anything in particular to do besides relay information that
we need to keep up with the story or keep straight the seven warring families. In any case, in “Game of Thrones” I can assure you, 10 weeks later, we’ll all be depressed by what will be the end of yet another season.
So until then, enjoy the ride, which kicks off in THREE, count them, 3 days!
