George R.R. Martin names his favorite television episodes (other than Game of Thrones)



George R.R. Martin

Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin is one of today’s most well-known authors, having written a number of best-selling works. Martin experienced the difficulties faced by writers who work in the film and television industries since, like most authors, he began his career in obscurity. In terms of his all-time favorite TV episodes, he too has a lot of options that are not Game of Thrones.

George R.R. Martin’s favorite TV shows and their episodes

In his recent post on the blog Not A Blog, Martin wrote:

“The Suitcase from MAD MEN, the heart-wrenching “Ozymandias” episode from BREAKING BAD… THE SOPRANOS had lots of great episodes, but “The Pine Barrens” was special, and for the entire rest of the series I kept waiting for that Russian to turn up again when we least expected… for “The Wire” they picked the episode where Stringer died, and one can’t argue with that, though Omar’s death hit me maybe a tiny bit harder… but the show was so good, it came close to perfection pretty frequently…”

“And BLACK MIRROR is an extraordinary series in so many ways, but “San Junipero” is the episode I love to watch over and over, and tell my friends to watch… if I had to pick one episode that was even more perfect than all the others on the list, though, it would have to be the final episode of SIX FEET UNDER. I liked that series well enough, though I cannot say I loved it as much as I loved ROME or DEADWOOD or FARGO or a few other shows missing from the list, but that last episode was far and away the best finale in the entire history of television, and I cannot imagine how anyone could possibly do better.”
