I drifted away from Game of Thrones after season 2 and just never came back. I meant to. It just didn't happen. I watched an episode for the first time with Jen a week or two ago (where Sansa gets... ya know) and I wasn't impressed. I thought it was boring and that it felt just like an episode of season 2 but with the pieces all rearranged. Same beats. I wasn't in a hurry, despite all the great stuff I'd heard about seasons 3 and 4. Now, though, you all have got my interest back. Ha, my best friend Clint George sent me a text - "They finally got the Walkers, dude." Everyone's saying the latest episode is one of the best things ever on TV. Damn TV shows for this, ha. Long stretches of talking and stalling, complimented by occasional beats of greatness (I also understand why they have to do this). My interest is rekindled. Eager to get back into it.
