Game of Thrones

When a power vacuum emerges in the mythical land of Westeros following mighty King Robert’s death, several noble families, including the Starks, Lannisters and Baratheons, wage war against each other for control of the vacant Iron Throne. Full of political and sexual intrigue, this fantasy series, based on George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” novels, also chronicles the rise of an ancient evil, which threatens the entire kingdom.

I always liked science fiction but never cared so much for medieval fantasies. I still don’t care for dungeons and dragons but I will put this show in a whole different category. This is a good character driven show.

I will warn there is plenty of nudity, violence, decapitations and foul language but I can’t wait for season two to come out on Netflix. I recommend getting this series on DVD as one of the features was the history of the families. It was great to have a map. This show reminded me of ABC’s “Lost” with the different characters and backstories.

The political stories are relevant in today’s society. A good example is when it was discussed who would make a good King for the land. They questioned if a great warrior would be a good king. How many times have different people said Military Men typically do not make good presidents? We see stories on bullying and my favorite theme from Star Trek “absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The ten episodes I watched went by quick.

Click here for the Netflix link in case you would like to add it to your queue.

All the best,
