Normally I wouldn’t do these lists but I have collaborated with Lena Lamoray to work on one (the full list, including Lena’s favourites has been posted here).
Favourite New Series
Game of Thrones
Based on a series of medieval-fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin A Song of Fire and Ice, GAME OF THRONES is a story of incest, loyalty, love, betrayal, deceit and power. And because this is an HBO show, you know there’s also lots of sex and blood.
Seven noble families are fighting for control of a kingdom called Westeros. Just like the old European royal families where alliances are formed as easily as they are broken, Game of Thrones is full of unexpected twists and turns. You find yourself falling in love with the brutish Khal Drogo and the cunning Tyrion Lannister and I know I’m not alone in this.
The cast reads like a who’s who of British acting royalty: Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, just to name a few. Season 2 is due to air in April so there is still plenty of time for you to get hold of Season 1 and catch up on this brilliant new series.
