Game of Thrones, the highly anticipated series coming out on April 17th at 9pm from HBO is based off of George R. R. Martin’s best-selling book.
This is a video I have been really excited to watch, and I am so happy that we are getting a little teaser of the show a few weeks early. I can’t wait to see how the story on the TV screen lives up to the book. That accuracy is definitely going to make or break this show, thanks to the millions of loyal fans of the original story.
Having said that though, it does look pretty epic, and I am interested to see how the story progresses visually. The show is warned to have lots of violence, sexual content, and general mature stuff, but they kept this sampler pretty clean.
What do you think? does it fit with the feel of the book and live up to the expectations? If you haven’t read the book, does it seem like an interesting enough show that you’d watch it, even without the back-story?
