Game of Thrones

I don’t have HBO and haven’t in quite some time, so I’ve not watched a single episode of Game of Thrones. Season 2 began on Sunday and it seems that this show is popular. I was lucky enough to get disc 1 of season 1 through Netflix though (arriving today).

Do you watch this show? If you start watching a show that has back story, do you ever feel the need to go back to the first season? Or are you fine jumping in wherever?
