If it's a new-to-you series, here is a Game of Thrones description: "Based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin this sprawling new HBO drama series is set in a grounded fantasy world inhabited by ambitious men and women of both honor and ill repute, much like our own real world. In the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, whoever controls the Iron Throne holds unbelievable power, and the series centers on the rise and fall of several families that covet that power at all costs.
This is a story of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honour, conquest and triumph. In the Game of Thrones, you either win, or you die."
A big Thank You to Showcase for bringing us Game of Thrones from the beginning!
