        You're comparing Game of Thrones to The Lord of The Rings?

        Lol.

            All good points. Hey, at least we have shows to distract us from reality for 2 hrs

              @thehost91 Agreed. Though I will say it's pointless to compare the two shows. One is a contemporary drama, the other a fantasy drama, with very different storytelling practices. Breaking Bad relies on its characters to run through emotional gauntlets, and they do a very fine job of that (especially Cranston). Whereas with Game of Thrones, it's more about politics, and that's naturally less emotional. I will admit they tried to cram too much into season two, and a few characters didn't get the screen time they needed, but going forward, I think they realized they need to split the book material up into multiple seasons.

              GoT has been more faithful than I could really ask for. For the budget they have to work with, we're getting near LOTR quality television.

                @thehost91 -- Both are very f*cked up shows; I'll give you that. But, I'll respectfully disagree with everything else. No, and I mean no one, on Game of Thrones would have a chance against Bryan Cranston. His performance in Breaking Bad is a f*cking outstanding. The performances in Game of Thrones are just "good".

                The writing, and storytelling, aren't even close. Not to be disrespectful, but I find Game of Thrones to be more of a guilty pleasure than an award-worthy show. Great entertainment for a certain crowd, but nothing more. It holds a baring resemblance to "The Walking Dead", an "okay" show; with corny lines, and melodramatic performances. It's "The Walking Dead" of fantasy, dare I say.

                There's nothing intelligent, subtle, or in brilliant about them. And neither of them will ever reach the brilliance of Breaking Bad. The "pink teddy bear" gimmick alone, shows that.

                The cliches and convenience is what really gets me about "Game of Thrones". Sure, it has unpredictable deaths(?), but those are either poorly executed, or far and few. They stop being humans, and start becoming mere characters. And the heads; oh the decapitated heads, how they look so fake.

                I think a couple of my other issues with the show are written on the page of it, on this website. But, after this rant, I doubt you'd want to read it.

                Respect in-mind, you continue to watch and enjoy the show, at least you're getting something out of it.

                  Excellent show. Will definitely be picking this up.

                    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx You got me there. I f**king love Breaking Bad. But for me, personally, I think GOT is just as good a show in terms of writing, acting and storytelling. And featuring a lot of f**ked up material.

                      @thehost91 -- No, it's not that. If it's quality-ridden, I'll watch anything. Game of Thrones features some sort of quality, but it's so flawed that it just barely counts. It's decent, but it's far from one of the greatest shows of all-time. Try comparing it to Breaking Bad; a show that is superior in every way. It just doesn't hold up well.

                          @thehost91 -- I've seen every single episode except the finale for season 2(can't find reliable source online). So, to answer your question; yes, and no.

                            @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Just to make sure, you have seen both seasons, correct?

                              @thehost91 -- Only to be postponed until next season, and the next. Which begs the question: Does the "winter" actually exist?

                              @ghostman -- Not necessarily. That wasn't my intention; I was just posting a bold statement that I stand 100% behind.
