Game of Thrones Season 4: What to Watch While You Wait

Game of Thrones Season 4 has been over for a week, and we're already missing it like the Starks miss Winterfell. How are we supposed to wait until next year to get our fix of epic awesomeness?

While there's no other show quite like Game of Thrones — that exact blend of incredible acting, entrancing dialogue, epic effects, and copious boobs is hard to replicate — there are a lot of other shows out there that can help fill the gap in your TV schedule and help keep the Game of Thrones jonesing to a minimum.

As bonafide TV addicts, we've come up with a list of shows that we think will appeal to Game of Thrones lovers. From historical dramas to sci-fi masterpieces, 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.
