Blogging may be a little slow today, since I spent most of the weekend grappling with HBO’s adaptation of Game of Thrones. It’s a genuinely terrific show in ways that surprised me, beautiful and brutal and expansive, and I’ll publish a comprehensive review the week before the premiere on April 17. Let’s use this as an open thread for speculation and questions (I’ll answer general ones, but won’t provide spoilers, and am happy to be reassuring about concerns) about the series. And I’ll be back in greater detail later today.
