Game of Thrones discussion was taking over the "Recommend a TV Show or Documentary" thread, so I made a separate thread for Game of Thrones discussion.
* WARNING * This thread may contain spoilers!!
Season 3 of Game of Thrones starts on March 31st, 2013.
Here is a link to a recent article confirming that Season 3 is going to account for roughly the first half of the 3rd book (A Storm of Swords). Also, the episodes are going to be a little longer than the usual HBO/SHO/Starz/etc. hour-long show play times. The writer and producer have said that most of the episodes will be 56 or 57 minutes long rather than the standard 52 minutes. Its not much, but over 10 episodes, that's a full hour of extra content, so I'll take it! http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/19/showbiz/tv/game-of-thrones-season-three/index.html
For those of you who have not read the books yet, you should be in for a lot of great surprises this season! For those of us who did read the books, is the 3rd book (A Storm of Swords) your favorite? I know that its my favorite of the 5 books so far.
