"When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die."
Set in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, where "summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime," Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard Stark of the House Stark to serve as Hand of the King, or highest official. Secretly warned that the previous Hand was assassinated, Eddard accepts in order to investigate further. Meanwhile the Queen's family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take power. Across the Narrow Sea, the last members of the previous and deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also scheming to regain the throne. All while a very ancient evil awakens in the farthest North. Amidst the war and political confusion, a neglected military order of misfits, the Night's Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and icy horrors beyond.
The show features an enormous cast; Eddard Stark (Sean Bean) , Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), Catelyn Tully (Michelle Fairley), Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), Petyr Baelish, (Aidan Gillen), Viserys Targaryen (Harry Lloyd), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Robb Stark (Richard Madden), Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright), Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson), Sandor Clegane (Rory McCann) and Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa).
Game Of Thrones is easily one of the best shows to ever be made. I know I've said that many times before but this time I really really mean it. If you're expecting Lord Of The Rings, and I mean Elves, Orcs and magic, you're not going to find that here. What you will find is murder, sex and incest, conspiracies, swords and morally grey characters
