Skip the show but Read the Books

The show has way too much sex and violence, all for the almighty dollar I suppose - but do read the series, it's an interesting tale, but best in book form.

This is what's wrong with the world.

I can't believe how many families are okay with this in their homes. Has our culture really become so morally bankrupt and insensitive? This is acceptable? It makes me sad and extremely concerned about what's next. How far will we fall?
