“Game of Thrones”
My hubby, a big fan of the books, was ecstatic when he heard George R.R. Martin’s series was being made into an HBO series. I was excited, but didn’t know what to expect, having not read the books. And, after watching the first episode, he seems to be pleased with the way it’s been done so far. You can never be sure how a book will translate to screen, whether small or big.
I can already tell I’m going to love watching the show. It’s visually stunning and reminds me of “Lord of the Rings” with all the wide open spaces, beautiful scenery and such. But, the characters and the story have already piqued my interest and I want to know more.
Now the question is … read the books while watching the series or not?
Tagline: Winter is coming.
HBO’s “About the Show”: “Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.
It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men … all will play the ‘Game of Thrones’.
A new original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series is coming soon to HBO.”
