Game of Thrones: Prepping for Season 2

5 years ago

For my first blog post on Luuux, I`ve decided to write about something I`m extremely fond of: books and TV. The HBO series Game of Thrones is especially loved me because I`ve been a fangirl of the series for about six years now. When I read `Game of Thrones`, the first book of George R. R. Martin`s A Song of Ice and Fire series in 2007, I was blown away by it. Martin`s prose and skill at character development are simply unmatched.

Neither are his stories one-dimensional, as many in the fantasy genre are. There are some elements of magic, dragons, etc. However, the series is more like an intense, complicated game of chess. It`s part intrigue, in some parts, horror. It is not bogged down by stereotypes.

Because the books set such a high standard, the HBO producers had their work cut out for them bringing the story alive and introducing a TV audience to Martin`s vast and rich world. The fact that they pulled this off is nothing short of remarkable, and all the more reason to look forward to the beginning of the second season on April 1st, 2012.

WARNING: Video may have spoilers for those of you who haven`t watched Season 1 (tut tut).
