Game Of Thrones Is A Visually Stunning Masterpiece

Game of thrones

I was a little depressed and saddened that so many of my favorite shows were either being cancelled or having the plug pulled on them but I started hearing whispers and gossip regarding a brand new show coming out called Game Of Thrones. My husband being the avid reader and huge fan of fantasy novels claimed he had read the series A Song Of Ice And Fire by well-known author George R.R. Martin and was excited that they were creating a TV series based on the popular books. Each season was set to be based on one book in the series.

After watching the first episode I was amazed at the quality in acting and special effects. The show is filmed in beautiful, stunning Ireland. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking and each episode is a visual masterpiece.

It is said that the budget for Game Of Thrones could be compared to Rome with reportedly 5-10 million just going into the pilot and the total budget for the first season being 50-60 million. This show was worth every penny in my eyes.

Game Of Thrones follows seven families caught in a sometimes violent struggle over control of the Iron Throne and as the series opens the threats from the snow-covered region north of Westeros and the eastern continent across a narrow sea are simultaneously beginning to rise.

Each character and each episode leaves me wanting much more and George R.R. Martin claims the show was very faithful to his work. Hats off to you David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for creating a fantastical, mythical masterpiece worthy of many awards and bravo to the entire cast for superb acting that has left me entertained every Sunday night.

Those of you who have not seen Game Of Thrones I dare you to watch it and not be amazed!
