Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones title card.jpg

A television adaptation of author George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, which would ultimately finish out adapting books in the series that hadn't even been published yet, where several royal families vie for the Iron Throne, with plenty of backstabbing, murder, betrayal, and whatnot. A little light on the fantasy element and heavy on human interest early on, although there are some good battles and occasionally dragons, and I definitely don't regret rewatching older episodes and finishing out the series. Safe to say, I also don't have any intention to reread the books since I found them somewhat soporific, and I definitely enjoyed watching the show more than reading the books on which it's based.
