This weekend is back: Hurrah! Season 4 of 'Game of Thrones' begins!

There's nothing like Game of Thrones (Sunday, 10 p.m., HBO) anywhere else on TV. No show is mounted on such a massive scale, with such a huge cast and so many storylines spinning at once. And as Season 4 begins, it's clear this remains one of the great shows on TV.

This season hits the ground running - and make sure you don't miss the final minutes of the second episode.
