I've been behind on this show for a while, and I'm finally going to get caught up since I've run out of things to watch. The last season I finished was season 4, and I just watched episode 1 of season 5. My favorite characters so far, in no real order, are: Tyrion Lannister Oberyn "Red Viper" Martell Mance "King Beyond the Wall" Rayder Episode 1 of season 5 was great. It definitely got me interested in the show again. I'll post a rating for all of season 5 once I'm caught up.
