I can’t help it the first time I saw a promo for the new fantasy series Game of Thrones, my heart started to do back flips. Was it because I had fallen in love with the A Song of Fire and Ice series the HBO show is based off of? Or maybe it was because the possibility of The Hobbit being made seemed to be drifting farther and farther away from reality. It also could have been that ever since I was a young wide-eyed girl, movies such as The Never Ending Story and shows like Hercules have captured my imagination in ways that the latest Romcom or teen drama never could. All I knew for sure was that I had just finished reading The Lord of the Rings trilogy and watched the movies for the umpteenth time; the Twilight series had lost my attention some place in the middle of the third book; Lost and Battlestar Galatica had ended and I was/am in desperate need of a new obsession.
Game of Thrones is expected to premiere on HBO in the Spring of 2011 and stars Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Alfie Owen-Allen, Emelia Clarke, Michelle Fairley, and Lena Headey.
Until next time,
