Game of Thrones
Peter Dinklage gives the second season the official Peter Dinklage Seal of Approval™, which is pretty much all I need:

“It’s a great season. I was opposed to doing TV for a long time because I thought the quality of writing wasn’t very strong, as opposed to film, but there’s been a shift in term of the quality of scripts. HBO has attracted a tremendous amount of great writing talent.”
