I got board of Board Walk Empire. Made it about 6 or 7 episodes in and decided to pack it up. Spartacus was awesome. That just made me think of a great name for whom ever put his new name up for debate lately in a thread. Jupiter's Cock

I've watched both. Boardwalk Empire is pretty interesting. Steve Buschemi is also pretty good. It reminds me of Goodfellas but set in 1920. Spartacus: Blood and Sand is slow to start, but the writing seemed to improve after the third or so episode. Lots of wang, which is fine for me but some people might not enjoy it. Spartacus: Gods of the Arena is actually very good, but short (6 episodes). I'd recommend both. I am on the fence about boardwalk empire. Its interesting, but I am not a huge fan of mafia driven series or movies.

And I made an honest observation about that honest question.

I read the books, the 1st 3 books in the series are some of the best fantasy books ever written and I've read a LOT, then he seems to lose his way a little like Robert Jordan and the Wheel of Time series. Well worth reading.

I've heard it's one of the most well-written fantasy series out there. I like Sean Bean too, even if he's looking chubby in this.
I've been eyeballing this series for some time, but haven't had the time to commit to it with everything going on with my job right now. With the HBO special happening, I think I'm going to have to finally just plunge in...

My wife loves these books and has been waiting for the next installment for years. She said the Robert Jordan books are her favorite (in her words, she is part of the "Hard Core Fan Freak" group) with GRRM coming in just below RJ, mainly because of the delays in his writing. A bit egotistical as well. His work is "grittier" and she recommends never becoming too attached to any character as shocking things occur. She also is a big fan of Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Ericson, but said those are a tougher read, requiring much more attention. She has been looking forward to the series on HBO and following the progress since even before it was officially announced. Apparently some things are different from the books, which could be good or bad. What are the books about? Take various medievel and royal histories, sprinkle in some Tolkien-esque ideas, a dragon or two, witchcraft, religion and some scary unexplained "Others" and you have a start in understanding.

It was far better then I expect it to be, lots of adult scenes which surprised me. Only grip, not enough time or development spent on the pups and Stark's children.

The series, so far, is fantastic.

You have to have a lot of patience though. There are plot points introduced in the first chapter (literally) that take several books to even begin to materialize.

Word of warning, the Martin books are not happy books. They make the Soprano's look like the Mickey Mouse club.
