I'm personally losing interest in the show, it's very watchable but season 5 was pretty bad and season 6 was only ok, will be interesting to see what happens in season 7 but i'm not even sure if that will really be worth seeing

I almost forgot about this, GREAT SHOW, I'd put it on the same level as Breaking Bad and from what i've read so far it's very faithful to the book series to think i almost dismissed it as probably being too nerdy before i watch it

and i hate joffrey

ended perfectly in season 4 so i don't really see the need for a fifth season, especially after hearing they have done a 3 year time jump from the events in season 4 to the events in season 5. good fun show but i personally think it's time for it to finish.
