Game of Thrones is A-GO!! HBO gives the greenlight!
WINTER IS COMING!!! WINTER IS COMING!!! WINTER IS COMING!!! WINTER IS COMING!!! WINTER IS COMING!!! WINTER IS COMING!!!
Ok sorry just had to get that off my chest. I’ve kinda been going through different stages of ecstasy ever since a friend linked me to The Hollywood Reporter’s article about the Game of Thrones tv series. HBO decided today to green-light the series, ordering 9 episodes plus the pilot. Guess I’m going to have to get HBO now….damn it.
Set in the wonderful, gritty medieval world of Westeros, Game of Thrones follows the adventures, or misadventures, of the Stark family. The story begins when the head of the family, Eddard (played by Sean Bean) is promoted to be the king’s second-in-command, an honor he desperately does not want. What follows is a story of intrigue, loss, treachery and adventure for both Eddard and his family.
If you haven’t read the books yet, you simply fail at life. They are the best fantasy books, hands-down (I’m looking at you Robert Jordan. 15 books my ASS) that have come in a long time and you are a disgrace of a human being if you don’t go pick them up.
Check out the picture below for a great collection of photos of all the cast members. Thanks THR.
