    Will obviously miss football, but Sundays with Game of Thrones and Mad Men will be so awesome. Was an insanely good TV night last spring, especially with the NBA playoffs going on as well.

    I just saw the Twilight movie and at one point they're talking about how they had to kill some chick and the words they used were "She had to pay the price."

    Took everything inside of me not to shout out "THE IRON PRICE!"

    "Had to see" would've been more accurate. Price I paid for making my wife see Argo.

    You're wife has terrible taste in movies. And if you have to pay her back for seeing a critically acclaimed movie about an interesting story in American history then she sucks doubly. No offense of course as I have no illusions that my wife will go see Argo but since she liked Skyfall it evens out

    GRRM must have convinced them to include 5 minute long descriptions of all meals/feasts to better mirror the books. Plus I heard there's an episode in which Sansa reads the recipe for lemon cakes out loud for an entire scene

    'Game of Thrones' gets super-sized season 3 -- EXCLUSIVE

    by James Hibberd

    The biggest production on TV of one of the biggest stories in fantasy is about to get a little, well, bigger.
    The Game of Thrones team is creating a “super-sized” third season of the hit series.
    With showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tackling content from the first half (roughly) of author George R.R. Martin’s largest Song of Ice and Fire novel (the 973-page fan-favorite A Storm of Swords), the writer-producer duo are delivering slightly longer episodes to the network. There’s still 10, but you’ll get a little more each week than previous seasons.
    “There’s almost another full episode’s worth of extra minutes spread across the season,” Weiss says. “One of the great liberties with HBO is we’re not forced to come in at a specific time. We can’t be under 50 minutes or over 60, but that gives us a lot of flexibility.”
    COLLECT ALL 4 HOBBIT COVERS: When you subscribe to EW!
    “A super-sized season, as befitting Storm of Swords,” Benioff adds. “Last year we had a lot of 52-minute episodes. This year is a lot of 56, 57.”
    In fact, the third season finale is expected to run more than an hour — a move that requires special permission from the network (previously, the show’s pilot and its second season finale exceeded an hour). Episodes are still being calibrated so exact times could change, but HBO and producers are confident the season will deliver more Thrones than ever before. Says HBO in a statement: “All 10 episodes gained a minute or two from past seasons with the finale very possibly exceeding 60 minutes.”
    “So for people clamoring for another episode, it’s in there,” Weiss says. “It’s just been cut into tiny pieces.”
    Game of Thrones returns March 31, with the season two DVD out Feb. 19.
