I started watching this show the February before the second season aired and finished the whole first season in less than two days. Since then I have drawn in my whole family (4 people), my uncle, and 5 of my friends. The complexity of the series and the amazing actors truly make this show amazing and along with amazing special affects makes this the only TV show that actually seems like a real Hollywood movie. I myself have already seen the 2nd season but I plan on buying the season to increase the growing list of my family and friends who are now enthralled in this show. Along with the 1st season collectors edition I have a Targaryen sigil hoodie and a Baratheon sigil t-shirt. Yes this show is amazing, and yes you will be addicted if you aren't already!
P.S. $35 is a bargain, when I pre-ordered mine it was $50
