Been meaning to make this thread for a while now (thanks to Johan Sporre for the idea) but the ongoing discussion on Twitter about my complete TV newbness has compelled me to finally get it posted. Basically, we all know that Game Of Thrones is going to be awesome. But what shows or films should we watch to prepare us for it? What shows or films have similar themes to Thrones? What shows or films star our Thrones cast? Any and all suggestions are welcome.
As for me, I want to catch up on all the great shows I’ve missed over the past few years. I plan to watch Rome, Firefly, Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, The Wire and Lost, more or less in that order. If you want to hear my reactions as I watch, you can follow my personal Twitter @p_Red.
So, what about you guys? What will you watch in anticipation of Game of Thrones?
