Based on the critically acclaimed books of George R. R. Martin, HBO's Game of Thrones is a fantasy epic that feels all too real. Viewers will find no clear heroes wandering around the imaginary real of Westeros, doing the work of good against some unspeakable, predictably dark evil. Instead, viewers will be treated to a world comprised of shades of grey, replete with messy politics and sexual tensions, arranged marriages and brothels,and strange forces threatening from beyond the wall that keeps the Winter at bay. And across the Narrow Sea sits an army of Dothraki horse warriors and the the last two members of House last Targaryen, children of the "mad king," who was murdered in an uprising seventeen years previous.

they spend watching the world of Westeros more satisfying than any genre show on television, and more rewarding than any fantasy film to hit the silver screen in years.
