Before the 3rd season of Game of Thrones ends, which is currently in its 8th episode, there is still time for recent fanatics to catch up on this much talked about HBO Original production. It has been received by so many open arms that a go signal has been given to the cast and crew for a 4th season due to air next year.
The action/adventure/fantasy show is a TV series adaptation of George R. R. Martin’s novel A Song of Ice and Fire. It basically tells the story of several noble families who are at war with each other as they try to claim the Iron Throne. Deceptions and conspiracies are wonderfully intertwined within the plot. Most importantly, the story also reflects the nature of men- something that every viewer will appreciate, despite the medieval setting.
Peter Dinklage received an Emmy and Golden Globes award for his role as Tyrion Lannister, a member of one of the families vying for the throne which rules the seven kingdoms.
It may seem like the usual period drama wherein the cast of characters are power-hungry (think The Tudors) but it has a unique, magical twist to it. There are dragons (pretty much like Merlin) and zombies involved. The one question which will always be asked in each episode is: Who is the rightful heir of the Iron Throne?
If you are interested in catching up before the last episode of season 3 is aired, all you need is to set aside 28 hours for TV time to do so.
La vie est tres belle,
