Game of Thrones Season 4: What to Watch While You Wait
We may be getting closer to 2014, but Game of Thrones Season 4 still seems about as far away as Westeros' rumored winter, and the epic hole it leaves in our TV schedule is hard to fill. Hard — but not impossible.
The joy of the Netflix, Hulu, DVD, HBO on Demand, etc. age is that you have the whole of TV history at your fingertips, and there's always something new to watch. While we can't bring you more Game of Thrones, as bonafide TV addicts, we can suggest shows that will help sooth the pain of not having it on.
From historical dramas to sci-fi masterpieces, these shows aren't Game of Thrones, but they all have some combination of GoT's key elements: Epic scope, complex characters, beautiful cinematography, sparkling writing, dubious morality, interesting fantasy elements, an attempt at realism ... the list goes on.
