  1. This series has me in the horns of a dilemma. I want to watch the series because I simply don’t have time to read the books. It will also mean breaking a promise to myself because I vowed never to give my attention to anything helmed by Benioff and Weiss ever again (a hill I will die on forever and a day). Yes, I’m still bitter over their last project. What happened there was borderline unforgivable. I suppose their saving grace this time is that they’re not going to run out of source material.

    1. You can watch the Chinese adaptation here. You will need to subscribe to Tencent for the vast majority of episodes, but it is, at least, not Benioff and Weiss.
