    The most intriguing show on the air.This show surpassed anything
    HBO has done including”The Sopranos which became redundant
    And took 18 months between seasons.This GOT is an epic in the mold
    Of BBC’s production of I Claudius.Need I say more.I’m Jake the first of his name.
    So be it!!!

    This show should absolutely be renewed for a 4th season. It’s one of the best shows on TV right now. The acting is top notch giving the characters a depth in a much shorter time than GRRM managed to do in is wordy books. The same can be said for the script which nicely highlights the main points of the books. PLUS if the series keeps going maybe GRRM will be forced to finish the book series before he dies. Keep it going to the very end. BTW, you can no longer judge a t.v. show by ratings of the original broadcast because so many people record programs they like to watch at their convenience.
