After a supremely successful second season, it goes without saying that we’re excited for the next installment of Game of Thrones. Here’s 5 Things We Want To See in the forthcoming third season.
Please Note: I will NOT be spoiling any plot points from the books. This article will only address information given to us on the TV show.
5. More Than 10 Episodes Per Season
The first two seasons of the best fantasy series on TV each had 10 episodes. The majority of shows today have around twenty episodes per season, twice as many as Game of Thrones. Imagine the stories that could be told with twice as much time to tell them. The two most common complaints, ”They didn’t include that bit from the book!” and “It feels rushed and all over place.” could be addressed without compromising the pace and depth.
However, HBO have a habit of keeping their seasons to around 12 episodes (True Blood & Boardwalk Empire being the most current examples) so seeing such an enormous expansion is unlikely. That addition of 2 more episodes per season would certainly still give extra breathing time for the characters and storylines though.
