We Love Game of Thrones

As we know that Game Of Thrones look and feels dramatic in scale. Its story certainly is. Centered around the battle for power in days of old, there’s conflict, despair, romance, lust, backstabbing and no shortage of ice, both real and metaphorical. It demands your concentration, but remains accessible. It’s also a strictly adults-only adventure.

It is known, Khaleesi. The day has finally come. There is celebration throughout the Seven Kingdoms. Yes, Season 1 of HBO’s Game of Thrones has finally come to DVD and Blu-ray! I had a chance to speak to Game of Thrones executive producers and series creators, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, about some of the juicy extras that fans can expect to find.

HBO’s Game of Thrones comes at an interesting time in geekdom, and its success speaks to the barriers that have been broken. Though fantasy and science fiction have often been popular cinematically, on television it’s been stuck in a Stargate-esque ghetto. But now we’ve got one of the most thoughtful shows currently on air on one of the most prestigious networks that also happens to be about dragons and swordplay.

As you might have guessed, the show is absolutely gorgeous on Blu-ray, and as Weiss explained, they definitely had the presentation in mind during production. “This is the first show that HBO has ever shot on Digital HD,” he said, “which is something that we were very much behind after seeing probably one of the most expensive, extensive ’35 mm vs. Digital’ tests for the Alexa camera that has ever been done.”

The Starks live near “the wall,” where men go to ward off the evil spirits on the other side. As the show starts, there’s a hint that there are foreign, evil beasts on the other side – but this is mostly kept in the background this season. More pressing is when Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead Wright) accidentally sees something he shouldn’t and is pushed off a high ledge. He doesn’t die right off, which leads to an assassination attempt, which sends the Stark looking for answers that could prove fatal.

The story is relatively straightforward insofar that nothing groundbreakingly orignal happens. Martin’s fantasy literature is about believability and realism; it is completely unlike Tolkien in that way (I don’t like to compare the two authors, but most people seem to be doing so lately). Whereas Tolkien favoured Orcs, Goblins, castles and wizards, Martin prefers the medieval touch, dealing with knights, lords and priests.

Game Of Thrones look and feels dramatic in scale. Its story certainly is. Centered around the battle for power in days of old, there’s conflict, despair, romance, lust, backstabbing and no shortage of ice, both real and metaphorical. It demands your concentration, but remains accessible. It’s also a strictly adults-only adventure.

As far as the story is concerned, I know it probably sounds like there’s probably too many moving parts to follow coherently over the course of 10 episodes. After the first episode alone, I probably would have agreed with you. A lot of stuff is dumped on us from the very beginning, but by the time the second episode is over, I guarantee you’ll feel right at home in Westerns.

Now I think you know about the show. I hope you can have a good time.
