Game of Thrones – Minireview

Game of Thrones scratches a medieval fantasy itch I wasn’t aware I needed to scratch. I hadn’t actually heard of the show until people started talking about it a few episodes in, so in case you’re also in the dark, here’s a quick rundown: its a brutally dark medieval TV drama with hints of fantasy set in a world of warring factions, backstabbing nobles and corrupt families. It focuses more on drama and its characters instead of mindless fight scenes, but it knows when to apply the violence and isn’t shy when it comes to its very adult themes. Based on the first of the fantasy novels ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ by George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones is chock full of tense drama and fantastic writing. Throw in an obscene amount of female nudity and you have one of the most mature TV dramas of recent memory.
