Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones roughly follows the storylines set out in A Song of Ice and Fire, set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
The series chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the realm’s noble families for control of the Iron Throne.
As the series opens, additional threats emerge in the icy North and in the eastern continent of Essos.
“The Sopranos in Middle Earth ” is the tagline that SHOW RUNNER David Benioff jokingly suggested for Game of Thrones, referring to its intrigue-filled plot and dark tone combined with a fantasy setting that incorporates some magic and dragons.
The series is set on the fictional continents of Westeros & Essos and interweaves several plot lines with a large cast.
The first narrative arc follows a civil war among several noble houses for the Iron Thrones of the Seven Kingdoms:the second covers the attempts to reclaim the throne by the exiled last scion of the realm’s deposed ruling dynasty; the third chronicles the rising threat of the impending winter and the legendary creatures and fierce peoples of the North.
It has received widespread acclaim by critics, particularly for its acting, complex characters, story, scope, and production values, although its frequent use of nudity, violence, and sexual violence has attracted criticism.
