We have been devoting a lot of space here on the blog to HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, from our weekly recaps to last week's guest Pop Rocks column to this week's regularly scheduled Pop Rocks. Yes, we love Game of Thrones, and judging by the popularity of the series, we're not the only ones. So it's refreshing when we come across someone who's less-than-enthusiastic about the whole thing.
An anonymous reader commented on yesterday's Pop Rocks:
GAME OF THRONES = Bad and totally predictable mexican Soap Opera in a medieval setting with bad sexual content, too much talk and few action! My note 3! And frakk the people who wants to make us like it! Frakk HBO!
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
