Talking TV: 'Game of Thrones' returns

This Sunday marks the glorious return of what Los Angeles Times television critic Mary McNamara calls "the best television show ever."

In case you didn't know, that show is, of course, "Game of Thrones."

The HBO show, based on the bestselling novels of the same name by George R.R. Martin, has amassed a rabid base of fans, who sit week after week and wait for their favorite characters to be killed off one by one.
