We all know what’s happening Sunday. At least we better. A far cry from the sunny shores of Long Beach lies a cold, dark, imaginary Land of Westeros with Seven Kingdoms ruled by one Iron Throne being chased after by 9 Houses.
Sunday, we watch Game of Thrones. 10PM on HBO. We travel back to Westeros on Sunday to deal with
**SPOILERS FOR SEASON ONE VIEWERS**
the aftermath of Ned Stark’s death, the birth of kalisi Daenrys Targaryen’s dragons, the mystery of Joffrey’s paternity, whether or not House Lannister will FINALLY be brought down and what the heck those weird creatures in the woods mean. There are millions of questions and tons of new characters, betrayals and uprisings that will be addressed.
But let’s talk about the show itself. Despite the setting, the series, adapted from George R.R. Martin’s books, tells human stories that viewers can get invested in. At first glance, one may think the show a “Dungeons and Dragons” LARPer’s wet dream, not for the mainstream. So is not the case. The compellling tales of each house draws you in and keeps you coming back. The settings are so engaging and each character holds their own, making you root for, hate or love them. More importantly, the stories are simple and easy to follow.
The writing and acting are so well executed, the show received a few emmy nods, was renewed before it premiered and scored a best supporting actor trophy for the imcomparable Peter Dinklage (Tyrion, House Lannister).
No matter which character prevails or what may happen should a war arise, viewers can be assured a thrilling experience every week until the summer.
