...I'm not going to be watching because its the "next game of thrones" as I don't like Game of Thrones. I'm in because its being co-created by Jonathan Nolan who was behind "Person of Interest": a TV programme that started out as a bog-standard crime procedural and turned into something else entirely. Spoilers for Person of Interest:

Ultimately Person of Interest was a TV series about the birth of the worlds first artificial intelligence. Over the course of five years we watch the "machine" from birth, to death, and then to new life. It matures, it protects itself, it grow a conscious, it defy's and protects its creator. Its brilliant.

So I'm in. Watching a show by your favourite show-runner is like reading a book by your favourite author.
