journalism these days is, for the most part, really mediocre. It was nice to see though, that before I saw this post, or the negative NYT review, I was reading Salon, and a Salon writer went out of their way to publish an item going after the NYT review and a similar Slate review. As many have pointed out, both reviewers seem to be writing pieces about themselves and the fact that they don't like the genre in and of itself, and how clever they are for not liking it. Don't like fantasy? cool. However, if you don't, given that many do, the review should be handed over to someone who can approach the work being reviewed in its own right. Anyway, long preface over here's the link http://www.salon.com/entertainment/tv/game_of_thrones/index.html?story=/ent/tv/feature/2011/04/16/game_of_thrones_review_of_reviewers
