Raise your hand if you didn’t think Game of Thrones would get picked up by HBO for a third season? If your hand is up, that will be convenient, as your next step is to use it to smack yourself in the back of the head. After some series-best ratings in the first two weeks of its second season, Game of Thrones has solidified itself as a genuine hit. That is, of course, if you ignore the fact that it’s winning awards, drowning in critical praise, and above all else, based on a series of books that provides fan-base and source material that should last at least 5 seasons. Ignoring all that makes this a surprise. Ergo, it’s not a surprise.

In related news, my Blog of Thrones series has also been picked up for another season. It’s the natural order of things. Someone must espouse the many wonders of Peter Dinklage.
