Forums - General Discussion - Game of Thrones (TV series) Official Thread

Game of Thrones is a television series on HBO based on the best selling A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. Game of Thrones is an epic, high fantasy series about the fight for control of Westeros which was inspired by The War of the Roses in medieval Europe. Though it's been labeled as fantasy, Game of Thrones is more about the struggle for power and family dynamics than it is about typical fantasy tropes like magic and elves. As co-producer and writer David Benioff put it: “If you have to just pick one word to describe it, it’s the word ‘power’ and how it affects those who are pursuing it, and how those who already have it try to retain it, and how those who are caught in the crossfire between the two are mutilated in the process.” In addition to complex characters living in a well thought out and developed world, the story boasts plenty of violence, sex, and other adult oriented content.

I'm about to watch episode 7. The first 6 were great, and I watched them all last night. Only negative I can think of so far is the cliché Spanish sword fighting instructor. Oh, and who is Lord Elregglerumbum??!?

He actually has the number "0" there, so it does not technically say official, it says 0fficial. Rules not broken!

Jon Arryn was an old guy who was Lord of the Vale before he died. He was also the husband of Lysa Arryn/Tully (Catelyn's sister). He was the King's Hand, but he died so the King asked Eddard to be the Hand.



Can't wait until Season 2 starts in April, definitely a great show!

Not having read the books: Joffrey, please die!
