Game of Thrones, Season 3, is seven days away, and already you can hear it coming. The HBO fantasy drama series is at the center of a pop culture tornado roaring our way, swirling with action figures and bobblehead dolls, crowds of fans and photographers at its Grauman's Chinese Theatre premiere, a couple of TV Critics awards, a Peabody and more. Distinctively, G of T can claim both a collection of prestigious honors and a worldwide cult following in 70+ countries. It is visually breathtaking, decidedly adult fare - even with its dragons - and probably does have more in common with The Sopranos, as some have suggested, than it does with many of its siblings in the fantasy realm.
