Game of Thrones, the first book in author George R.R. Martin's sprawling fantasy saga A Song of Fire and Ice, serves as the basis for this brawny, lusty series about courtly intrigue and civil war in a sprawling fantasy kingdom. TV and fantasy veteran Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings, Sharpe's Rifles) leads the massive cast as the warrior-noble Eddard Stark, who reluctantly assumes the role as the Hand of the King after the mysterious death of his predecessor.
In Game Of Thrones Season 1 DVD, The King, Robert Baratheon, has leadership of the lands of Westeros, a mythical country plagued by severe, decade-long shifts in weather. His rule is challenged by the exiled Prince Viserys Targaryen (Harry Lloyd), who trades his own sister (Emilia Clarke) for the allegiance of the Dothraki, a savage nomadic tribe led by Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa of the 2011 Conan the Barbarian). A shocking secret kept hidden by Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey, 300) leads to an upset in the balance of power and, ultimately, a challenge to the House of Stark to bring control to the bloodshed that threatens to overtake Westeros.
HBO's Game of Thrones has the budget, actors, and setting to tell an intricate story with enthusiasm and prestige. Season 1 is great and has gotten to a fantastic start.
I think it is a good show. There is intrigue, character love, character hate, wonderful setting, edge of your seat drama and nail biting anticipation. There has been a few episodes that I have found myself shouting 'No' at the screen when they have ended.
Game of Thrones is easily one of the best television show of 2011 tied with American Horror Story. I look forward to next season.
I think this season will be much better than last. The setting is gorgeous. The characters are so likeable. I'm looking forward to see some more stuff from HBO.
I have never been a fan before, I now know what that means. This is the only show I will not miss.
