what show is best to watch in place of Game of Thrones?
if you like fantasy at all, watch Carnivale (another HBO show)
I've had the first season on my HD for like a year now but three episodes in and I just couldn't get immersed. from my recollection it seems like it will mostly be dealing with the preacher's life and John Connor's life and their eventual angel/demon struggle? I do remember liking dead mom and blind fortune teller guy though.
Or do you mean currently airing?
