Must see program of the week

“Game of Thrones” (7 p.m., HBO, Season Premiere) - At long last the path to the Iron Throne will be revealed in the final six episodes of this landmark series. Who will sit on the throne at the end? No one knows. Personally I’d be happy if it was Bronn but we’ll all find out in what is sure to be an intense final season.

The best of the rest

“Les Miserables” (8 p.m., PBS, Mini-series Premiere) - Victor Hugo’s classic tale is reimagined by Emmy and BAFTA winner Andrew Davies (“Pride & Prejudice,” “Bridget Jones Diary”) in this six-part mini-series. You can read my Gazette review right here.
