T.V Shows: Games Of Thrones

O.O this is something different that we don't normally see on this blog! FINNALLY A ENGLISH SHOW AND IT"S WORTHY OF YOUR TIME ! Enough talk since this is gotna be sooooo awesome !
Game of Thrones is an American epic fantasy television drama series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

The Fantastic PLOT.
The series roughly follows the multiple storylines of the A Song of Ice and Fireseries. Set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, Game of Throneschronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the realm's noble families for control of the Iron Throne.The settings, characters and plot elements of the novels and the TV series are derived from a very broad range of periods in European history. 

A principal inspiration for the novels was the English War of the Roses (1455–85) between the houses of Lancaster and York, reflected in Martin's houses of Lannister and Stark. Most of Westeros, with its castles and knightly tournaments, is based on High Medieval Western Europe.....and many more historic things/feature to take note when you watch the show!

The first episode started VERY slowly, but it absolutely picked up, and it teased some really interesting conflicts to be explored in coming episodes. Though some of the visual cues will be very familiar to fans of "Lord of the Rings" or even "The Tudors" , Game of Thrones still stand out to be awesome! 

Also the costumes and scenery are spot on and really give the sense of gritty reality that permeates the show. Just when u think the impossible may not happen , in another split second another impossible thing just happened! Not to mention the episode opens dramatically and closes even more dramatically, finishing with lines of the entire Song of Ice and Fire series of books !
