    It IS one of the best things on television! I think they have not only done a superb job with casting but also condensing the plot. Most shows that falter in their later seasons didn't have a brilliant writer who had already laid out an extremely complex world.

    Plus, Jon Snow is just so f'ing pretty.

    The books (the longest thus far is just shy of 1000 pages) are tops and I am also anxiously counting down the days until the ADWD comes out!

    It is about gangsters, the police, and Baltimore. No bunnies.

    Yeah, and as it goes on it picks up on unions, politicians, school systems/kids, and the newspapers. It's kind of about how the system (or, as they refer to it in show, "the game") doesn't work and tends to sabotage or trap certain groups or types of people.

    Also, there is a puppy in a couple episodes.

    Hmm, intriguing. I may give an episode or two a whirl.

    It's biggest downside is, unfortunately, that it tends to takes a few episodes to get into. It's a really sprawling story, and it doesn't really present each episode as an individual story but part of something bigger. And because it can be initially confusing because of its scale and the assumption that the viewer is smart and patient enough to pick up on what's what without extreme hand-holding. It's my favorite show now, but I even I took a little while to warm to it. Totally worth it though. I think it might be the single highest rated thing on IMDB. It has a 9.7. To put that in perspective, Shawshank Redemption has a 9.2, and is the top rated movie (Other TV shows come closer, but I haven't seen one match it).

    Just a warning. I have had friends who loved it almost immediately too.
