Getting into book 4 a bit..

Spoiler:

Generally getting into book 4 is a bit daunting, is book 4 and 5 for all intents and purposes are one book. So that's 120 chapters to get through where none of the others were longer than 80. And that's with the story seemingly slowing down a bit as well.

Well, in Norway you would probably have to wait until next year. Razz 

Though maybe it's on HBO nordic or something.

Did you say you gave up at book 4?

Was surprised to read that the new series got an audience of 6.6 million- thats about the same as an average episode of Who in the UK and about 4 million short of a Who special.

I would have expected a bigger audience given the hype and the comparative audience size difference between UK and US.
Is 6 million a good viewing figure in the US for drama?

It apparently got higher viewing fiures than the Sopranos finale. And as far as I have gathered HBO is a cable channel with a limited audience of subscribers.

I've only heard those numbers mentioned as strong, at least.  Shrugging

It's on premium cable.  HBO is only estimated to have 28.7 million subscribers, which is less than 10% of the US population.  As such, it has far lower viewership numbers than broadcast TV in the US (which is what would be comparable to the BBC) or basic cable, which is what Breaking Bad aired on and would be comparable to something like Sky1. To get HBO, you not only have to have a cable (or satellite) subscription, you also have to pay specifically for HBO.

Didnt sleep last night, maybe because I saw the episode late at night it acted like a rich heavy meal before bedtime. My brain started whirring going over and over every scene trying to figure out whats going to happen next. Its good to be back in Westeros.  Razz

I will be finishing off the 1st series this weekend and starting the second. Can't get through too fast as I think some of book 4 (feast for crows) is being covered in series 4, as is a lot of books 3.

An advert ruined some of it for me! Bloody Sky TV.
