Game of Thrones: Another interesting Medieval TV series

As if I had enough watching medieval shows like Spartacus: Blood and Sands, another medieval themed series has just premiere on HBO entitled Game of Thrones. 

Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created by David Benioff and Dan Weiss for HBO. The series, based on author George R. R. Martin's best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of novels, chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among noble families for control of the Iron Throne of Westeros. - source: wikipedia.

The series cast includes notable actors like Sean Bean (notable for his role as Boromir on the Lord of the Rings trilogy series) and Lena Headey (notable for her role as the Queen of Sparta in critically acclaimed movie "300").

Relic Hunting: Watching all Relic Hunter episodes

I have been a fan of Tia Carrere since her breakthrough movies Wayne's World, Showdown in Little Tokyo and True lies but her portrayal of archaeologist Sydney Fox in the TV series Relic Hunter has made me appreciate her more. It's unfortunate that the series on lasted for only three season (66 episodes all in all) but the performance was great as this series was basically a amalgamation of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft.

I thank the internet that I was able to download all 66 episode via P2P (yeah I know it's bad to do P2P but it's hard to find the DVD for this show) and gradually watch the episodes to my delight.
