I don’t know if you’ve heard about A Game Of Thrones, I heard chatter about it earlier this year on Twitter and wanted to see for myself if it lived up to the praise heaped upon it. I’m confident enough to say that it certainly does and delivers it in spades. I ended up watching the entire first season of the show in one sitting!
The show is based on a series of books by George R. R. Martin and although I haven’t had a chance to read any of them yet, reviews seem to suggest that he follows in the footsteps of the likes of Tolkein. The production value of each episode easily rivals that of something like Lord Of The Rings and the narrative is so rich and interesting, the acting is excellent and the girls are gorgeous. I’m eagerly anticipating the second series.
In the meantime, I think I’m going to have to pick up the books as I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
