I have been a fan of the show since the very beginning, and was impressed to find the first two seasons available in 2013 to pass on as a gift that year to a relative; you really do need to have multiple seasons at hand so you can watch straight through!
The perfect boxset to binge watch - It has absolutely everything and I think it is suitable for both the ladies and the gents. The female leads are actually quite empowering and I don't think they alienate or put off a female audience.
There's action, comedy, love interests, attractive characters, and brilliant stories. It doesn't matter if you have not read the books; whilst the scripts and plots follow the books in the beginning, toward the later seasons the show has sped ahead of the books and going in different directions with les input from the author. I haven't read the books, so I in a way had the luxury of not knowing where the stories were going from episode 1. For those who have read the books, there may be disappointment or there may be equal joy in watching the show. Either way give it a watch!
One last note... If you live at home....don't watch it with parents in the room.... awkward!
