In the Game of Thrones You Either Live or Die

What did you do in the last 20 hours? I'll tell you what I did, I watched the whole first season of Game of Thrones (I know there are only 10 episodes, but come on, they are almost an hour each plus I gotta eat and sleep sometime...).
Man! I knew it would be good from the reviews and the quick popularity but this level of amazing-ness got to be against some sort of law... (It is known, It is known)

Game of Thrones is actually an adaptation of a series of books, called A Song of Fire and Ice by George R. R. Martin . (And as a Lord of the Rings-lover-blog, we always like authors who has R.R. initials in their
names after Tolkien... They seem to have a promising future.)

Well as I have not read the books -yet- I'm not going to act all high and mighty and try to give you background information but luckily HBO has no problems about that. And I must say their official website for the TV show is pretty impressive.

I should warn you, there are MASSIVE SPOILERS ahead...

Modern Finale

There are shows that you wait every week to watch, especially every week on Thursdays to watch, and there are shows that air on a different day than the rest so you can give your whole attention to it. Modern Family is just that. It airs on Wednesdays, not on Thursdays, which everyone thinks that every show-to-watch must be on, but on boring Wednesdays. And that is why I love it. It kind of prepares me for the rest of the shows that will be aired later days.
And now the season is over, Modern Family went away with a perfect finale to suit its glory.
