Return of the King was so long, dull and drawn out I literally thought the movie had ended 3 or 4 times before it actually did.
HBO is responsible for probably the three greatest drama series of all-time Wire, Sopranos and Oz - Game of Rings isn't in the same league as any of those. It isn't even as good as their second tier shows like True Blood and Entourage.
You seem to not enjoy the fantasy genre and comparing GOT to LOTR tells me you dont really know anything about GOT. GOT is about to supplant True Blood as HBO's most popular television show, so they're doing something right. Also putting the word good and Entourage in the same sentence is laughable. Sorry for the derail, excited about Hard Knocks tonight!
