Game of Thrones is an American fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

In a land where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, trouble is brewing. From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond, powerful families are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences. Winter is coming. Let the Game of Thrones begin.

    Pros:

    Amazing landscapes and wonderfully filmed. The storyline (albeit gruesome and devastating at times) keeps you wanting to know more. Many sex scenes for people who want that in a series.

    Cons:

    I hate the fact that this series is so gory! Yes it adds to the drama of it all but some scenes are so wrong in so many ways, with its gruesome killing and violence that means this is definitely for adults only. Violence against men, women, children and animals - there is no boundaries in this series and be prepared to be shocked. Storyline can be depressing at times and don't get too attached to any characters as everyone is at risk and your favourite just may die.

    Overall:

    I was recommended Game of Thrones by many people and whilst I was really impressed by the grand scale on which it's filmed, the amount of violence that they show is a real turn off and I would NOT consider this a feel good series as there are many disturbing moments in the storyline. Nevertheless it does add to the drama and keeps you intrigued with the hope that karma will deliver some form of justice to those who do wrong. The strategy of the characters in the medieval times trying to win thrones and seek revenge is interesting too. I would recommend this but only for adults and if you're okay with lots of blood and gore and lots of it! There are certainly alot of scenes that I saw that I wish I could forget and never want to see again.
