...I'll just harp on about Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell a bit
I'm LOVING this series (I've been enjoying GoT too XD)
I havent read the original book so the story's super exciting to me too. My favorite thing about it is the fantastic incorporation of history and traditional folklore. Alot of the magic in there reminds of fantastic old folk tales. Its a nice celebration or exploration of British folklore and folk stories that people either dont know exist or arent talked about very much (as opposed to say, Japanese folklore which is kind of similar but people are very familar with it compared to here).
