HBO has pulled off stuff like this before. It took me three or four episodes of The Wirebefore I really knew who everyone was and what was going on, and that turned out to be the greatest television show ever produced. Seeing as this one was developed by the same people who gave us the epic, badass series Rome, I would say that Game of Throneshas a lofty task ahead of it, but a better than average chance at becoming a success; especially if it keeps up the quality of the first episode.The impact of that gorgeously filmed showstopper of a set piece continues to resonate throughout the first episode of Game of Thrones, a 10-part series based on George R.R. Martin’s wildly popular fantasy saga A Song of Ice and Fire, but nothing in the series, so far, has come close to that expertly crafted piece of shock and awe.HBO has built up a sterling reputation for its original series and their true-to-life settings; there’s the old West in Deadwood, New York single life in Sex and theCity and a recovering New Orleans in Treme. But this Sunday, HBO will premiere a series that is light on true life and heavy on epic fantasy.If you’ve caught any of our “Game of Thrones” coverage by now, then you know we’re a bit reasonably enamored with HBO’s new fantasy series. In fact, working this week with “A Dance With Dragons,” the latest installment in George R.R. Martin’s epic, sitting unfinished at the edge of our desk unfinished has been a constant struggle.Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; and a determined woman undertakes the most treacherous of journeys. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Back when we started seeing screenshots and hearing talk of Cyanide’s RTS Game of Thrones: Genesis, there was a fair amount of skepticism about the game. Each time we posted about it, folks would express doubt that this game was accurately channeling George RR Martin’s fiction, or the HBO series that it has inspired.If you’re a lover of fantasy books, fantasy video games or — God help you — both, you’re going to want to sit down for this one. According to a report from EGM (relayed by VG247) Bethesda was in talks to adapt George R.R. Martin’s supremely popular Game of Thrones book series into a video game. That’s right: The Elder Scrolls people almost brought the Song of Ice and Fire to your favorite video game console. We’ll give you a minute to go grab your inhaler.How fares your Game of Thrones addiction? Has it waned after weeks and weeks of no new episodes, or has it gotten even stronger because of your desire to see more? Have you turned to reading the books after discovering this wonderful thing of a story? (I am sure George R.R. Martin is appreciating the boost in book sales right now. I think I even saw new versions of the books tied to the HBO series.)HBO’s new show Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martin’s multi-volume fantasy series A Song of Fire and Ice and Fire, begins this Sunday night. Fans of the books are very excited and have been squeeing about the series to anyone who will listen: It’s an epic, complex, gritty tale of politics and power, with just a dash of the mystical thrown in. It’s like Lord of the Rings for grown-ups! While all this fanboy excitement is coming from a good place, it makes the series sound overwhelming.
