HBO have consistently lead the way when it comes to good television in the US.
Maybe it’s their pay to view business model that allows them more freedom to go beyond the norm and say rude words and bare an appropriate breast in the right place, but they certainly have a knack of coming up with the goods time and again.
In fact some of the most iconic TV shows over the last 20 years; The Sopranos, Sex & The City, Band of Brothers, Deadwood, Eastbound & Down, The Larry Sanders Show, The Wire and of course now Game of Thrones have all been made by HBO. Usually you only have to hear that white noise sound before the start of a show to know that something entertaining is on the way.
At the moment I’m particularly pleased with them as they’ve recently announced a new series of my absolute fav show ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’.
HBO also has a pretty fab merchandising store and as you can see from below they’ve just released a set of cool Game of Thrones sweatshirts, so depending on whether you’re a House Stark Varisty, Targaryen or Lannister supporter you can wear your allegiances for all to see.
