>Game of Thrones – Fantasy HBO series

11 Mar


Epic alert. This looks very promising.

Based on the best-selling books by George R.R. Martin
A Song of Ice and Fire comes a TV-series called Game of Thrones.

Yep, this should be a¬†feast for the eyes. Starring Sean Bean and Lena Headey (300) it is described as a story about kings, queen, knights and renegades all fighting to obtain the throne in the mythical land of Westeros. It is said to be a gritty fantasy story filled with intrigue and politics and considering it airs on HBO they needn’t hold anything back.


Seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue abound. The primary families are the Stark, Lannister, and Baratheon families. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard Stark to serve as his chief advisor.

Eddard, suspecting that his predecessor had been murdered, accepts so that he can investigate further. It turns out more than one family is plotting to take the throne. The Queen’s family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take control.

Across the sea, the last surviving members of the previously deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also plotting a return to power. The conflict between these families and others, including the Greyjoys, the Tullys, the Arryns, and the Tyrells, leads to war. Meanwhile, in the north, an ancient evil awakens. Amidst war and the political confusion, a brotherhood of misfits, The Night’s Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and the horrors beyond.
