        What's the info on the book?  Title, publisher, all that?

        I don't watch the shows for the reason that they're so grossly
inaccurate and also bad fantasy (which is a different thing.)  As a game
master, I prefer that my players not watch them, either.  I am blessed in
that the group I just started has noone who watches either of the shows.
