I have read the books and seen the TV series and I’m 100% certain that you’re just a doofus if you believe that the first two episodes are enough to determine whether a TV series is any good. Most of the best TV series I’ve ever seen had a relatively slow pace, especially at the start (The Wire, House of Cards, etc.) but I knew that they had to be good because people who I deemed knowledgeable recommended them to me. And guess what, they were right.
