Excerpt: I found this series totally gripping and very addictive. The costumes and sets are just amazing and the storyline is great too. And of course, there are characters to love and characters to hate. And it isn't totally predictable either which is great. Cannot wait to get my hands on season 2!
Excerpt: Blood & Gore, along with Medieval "porn" abound in this intriguing HBO series. Every episode is entertaining and interesting, offering new insight into how the battle for control of a Kingdom is construed as merely a "Game"
Summary: Well, mostly! It really follows very closely and actually gives some more insight into the story line with things being blatantly said that were more subtle in the book. I'd hate to try and watch this show without having read the book though - I imagine you'd be a bit lost. Can't wait for the second season!!
Summary: Haven't read the books yet but I am hooked on this series now! Easily one of the most quality book to film adaptations I've ever seen, 10 hours worth of footage per book/season! Think Lord of the Rings but towards an adult audience- very intelligent, a lot of veiled meanings in how politics is played out, and of course adult themes and content as it's relevant to the story. Actors are likable and give their best performances. Story is great and script-writing is genius.
