Can you win the Game of Thrones


Game of Thrones is a HBO series based of the books by George R. R. Martin.  The series has been on for two seasons, and the third season starts on the 31st of March.  It is simply the best fantasy show on television.

The show is about the land of Westeros, and the several different houses all biding for their chance to either sit on the Iron Throne and be King of all the land, or simply be free of the empire and be king of their own little section.  The heroes of the show are the Starks, and they are the Lords and Ladies of Winterfell, the northern part of Westeros.  There are a lot, and I mean a lot of other characters, which is great because you get so many viewpoints on this war.

The writing and the acting are great in this series, but the one thing that bugs me is the amount of nudity in the show.  For the most part it is okay, but then they decide that they need to spice things up a bit and go overboard, and it can get a bit distracting from the serious tone the rest of the series sets.

But if you can handle a bit of scandal, then this show has a lot to offer, dragons, zombies, and medieval action, to name a few things, and I am going to have to figure out some way to watch the third season.

  1. It tried reading the series but made it to book three and realized I don’t care about any of the characters. The one or two I liked either died or their storyline is glacier slow. Then HBO oversexualizes the series and you have a big PASS.

    1. I hear what you are saying, I dislike the books as well, and I only read the first one, but I think the TV show forces the story to move faster, or at least breaks it up in to easier to swallow chunks. And the oversexualization is lame for sure, but everything else about the show is pretty great.

  2. That’s what’s lame about the show, does T&A&P really add so much to the story? I know it’s part of the more gritty world but still is it vital to telling a good story?

    1. No it is not, and does take quite a bit away from it actually, but it does have Dragons, Zombies, dudes fighting with swords, which make up for it. Plus they have a pretty talented cast.
