    So far Game of Thrones has been nothing but "I have a deep hatred toward your family so we are trying to accuse each other" and tons of soft porn. Right now I am watching two girls pretend to fuck each other and this has been going on for 6 minutes and 10 seconds. This is getting repetitive.

    Crassus on the left, Caesar on the right.

    The former should be much more important considering he crushes the rebellion.

    The guy on the left looks like he could be Dainel Craig's younger brother.

    Look Steve, if you don't like it you can always go back to watching My Little Pony.

    I honestly think Apartacus and Game of thrones are on par story wise, I find myself intrigued by both story lines, it's just that spartacus goes over the top way too much in violence and sex to make me care for it as much, but o the other hand GoT's story while interesting doesn't seem to to anywhere very fast. In Spartacus they throw us huge curveball's every other episode and have no problem killing off characters.

    GoT and it ain't even close. Spartacus is a really fun blood-and-tits show with some enjoyable performances. Game of Thrones is legit great HBO drama

    The show is fine. I'm not saying it is bad, I just feel like people need to stop fucking for an episode. It is just getting old ya know. More story/drama and less brothel scenes plz

    You've watched Spartacus haven't you? There's way more blatant sex happening in that show, and most of it just seems like it's there to "shock" the audience, not because it actually adds anything to the story.

    You have done well in agreeing with me.

    I haven't seen Spartacus. I'll start watching that after I am done with GoT.

    Sure enough, Jaime is back, and Game of Thrones got fucking awesome, again. What an actor, that Nikolaj Coster is.

    To compare this show to Spartacas is to compare a Budweiser to a fine Pale Ale. Bud is great when you're strapped for cash and gets the job done better than Malt Liqour, but come on, now.

    I still don't get it. I'm now up to date with GoT season 2 and I still think it's total trash. Production values are insane, but that's it. It's so muddily written!

    I think it's the characters that do it for me.

    Everything happening in Winterfell right now is pointless and stupid. Jon Snows story is also pretty pointless and stupid, and it's presented terribly. Arya is the worst character in the series. But the scenes with Tyrion, Jaime, Dane, and Tywin make up for it, if you ask me.

    The books really are a fuck-ton better, if you haven't read them. It makes the whole thing a lot more believable, because there's almost something...Disneyish about the television series.

    Ok, I should know how to spell Caesar, fair enough.

    But you're giving me shit for not knowing how to spell Spartacus? Really?
