Was anyone else watching Game of Thrones on HBO?
Having read all the book's in the series of A song of Ice and Fire (so far) I honestly think that the creators of Game of Thrones have done an excellent adaptation from book to TV. The first season was aired in April and was based on the first book in the series and is now available on DVD. The dvd will feature extras such as all of the characters first auditions for the show! Season 2 of Game of thrones is due to air next spring and is set to be another excellent series with 10 episodes based on book 2 of A Song of Ice and fire.
If you haven't read any of the books yet then you really should, George R.R. Martin has been dubbed as the American J. R. R. Tolkien of whom I am a massive fan, having read the hobbit when I was 8 years old and the Lord of the Rings in my early teens. The first four books of Game of Thrones in the series are available in a set which is really great value.
Game of Thrones Season 2
Season 2 of Game of Thrones has a great cast list already and filming started about a month ago. There will be familiar characters such as Daenerys Targaryen played by Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington who plays Jon Snow as well as favorites such as The Lannisters and more glimpsed of the Wall and the night's watch. There are big plot surprises coming up for anyone who hasn't read the books and some really great twists.
