I’m determined to get into HBO’s new horseracing drama Luck if it’s the last thing my brain can hold….because with dual creators like Michael Mann (Heat) and David Milch (Deadwood), I know there must be jewels being dropped….but after the confusing pilot episode, all I really keep thinking is….when is Game of Thrones coming back?

April 1, 2012 actually. And having read George R.R. Martin’s Clash of Kings, the sequel to Game of Thrones which is what this upcoming season is based on…I already know this is going to get intense.

But regardless of what lies ahead…how much do you want that little s–t King Joffrey Lannister to die? Even this child actor should get a Golden Globe for most annoying face. It’s amazing how this kid encompasses all of the “craven” bitchassness of the book’s character.

Sorry for the visceral reaction. It’s Monday and I’m pre-coffee. But guys, there will be lots of offal-eating Queen Daenerys for you being a bad-ass. And for me….more sad snowy Wall watching.
