I find it hard to believe that a thread dedicated to this amazing television series hasn't been created yet. I had heard a lot of chatter about Game of Thrones for a while, and so decided to take a risk and buy the Season 1 DVD. It's definitely one of the best purchases I have made in a while. For those uninitiated, Game of Thrones takes place in the fictional fantasy land of Westeros (or, as I like to call it Westeroos tee-hee) where "summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime." The show follows seven kingdoms as they battle for the Iron Throne and control of all the land. After two episodes I was hooked. The show is like Narnia for adults, except it's completely different from Narnia. There's backstabbing, attempted murder, political intrigue, nudity/sex, and more. Personally I ADORE the show, it's got real balls and isn't afraid to allow you to fall in love with characters only to kill them off or severely injure them ( no one is safe in the show, that includes main characters) and it also doesn't shy away from violence as much as it could. Every character is well portrayed and completely 3 dimensional (even the ones you hate are given a reason for acting the way they do), and the numerous plot lines are all completely interesting and easily engulf the viewer. It;s one of the few shows that isn't afraid to take risks, and I love that about it. So, that's my opinion about the show....what's yours?? Who are your favorite characters??? Will you be watching Season 2??? Discuss, and remember: Winter Is Coming.
