I read on a lot of places that GoT is the best rated and most watched TV show. But, who knows, nothing was official I suppose.
I like Daenerys, and that part of the story is the most interesting to me, cause I really like Jorah, and now Barristan is there as well. I only disliked Dothrakis, and hated that part in the first season. If you watched the 4th episode now, you might have changed your mind as well.
I think that 3rd season is still in book 1, or maybe it's book 2. Not sure, but I think I read that first two seasons were based on book 1.
Arrow is not breathtaking, like GoT, but it's quite interesting show. Acting is not that great IMO, I don't wanna use some more harsh word, but story was a pleasant surprise to me. It does have some boring parts, but still has enough of a story to keep you waiting eagerly for the next episode. And it's a nice touch that shifting from present to Oliver's days on the island.
I'm still watching the 1st season of Justified, and I had the same worries as you do, that it doesn't have a main plot. But, somehow it's still interesting to me, maybe it's the rednecks, I don't know, but I got bored of New York and east coast CSI type of shows, even Las Vegas, it's all the same, dress codes, talk...boring. And here it seems that the main arch is connection between all of the people from Harlan, and they are probably introducing all of them in the 1st season. They are all connected somehow, and it looks it could be used like a good build up...Ava's killing of her husband, and then other people that were influenced by that...and also the mob from Miami that is looking for Raylan. A lot of material...you need to watch all episodes to know what is going on.
Yeah, me too. I was expecting more of a documentary when it comes to Vikings, even though I knew it's a TV show...I guess History Channel part got me to think it would be more based on facts, and less on story telling.
Blue Bloods is the show that I watch with my wife and little sister, and it's fine for that. I don't know if I could watch it by myself, but watching a family of cops, and their every day activities are much more fun when you watch it with your family as well, I guess. Tom Selek is a plus, I like that guy, good actor, somehow imposing, and seeing Donnie Wahlberg is interesting, cause I remember him from the New Kids on the Block when I was a kid, and Mark looks a lot like him.
It's definitely not the type of show like the Wire, but I'm still waiting for story to develop a bit more. Blue Templars things might be interesting, and connection to one family member that died (not a spoiler, you don't see him in a show, it's known from the start).
