The Game is On

I know I shouldn’t do this. But I can’t help it. This is my blog after all. So I find myself again writing on one of my absolute favorite TV-series in the language it was written and shot in. It’s been a while since I did a similar thing with BREAKING BAD, and hopefully I’ve learned my lesson there well, how easy it is to hurt somebodies feeling, just by sharing your own thoughts. So please, dear fans out there, nothing of what I will put down here is meant to decrease your enjoyment of one of the currently best shows on TV: GAME OF THRONES.

What’s different this time is, that GAME OF THRONES happens to be an adaptation of a series of novels. And in anticipation of the start of season 2 I did the „mistake“ to start reading the books. Damn. I should have known better. I should have guessed. I got into trouble. Deep, deep trouble. Because I couldn’t stop. Even worse, I had to almost „work“ myself though them, because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to return to my own work anymore. Ever. Again. I would be even more distracted than I already was. And now, finally, I am about to finish A DANCE WITH DRAGONS, the most recent available book, number 5 in the 7(+x) volume series, my head starts to be clearer, and it looks like I will get my life back.
