in the Game of Thrones, all characters are tested; the lines between black and white are not clearly drawn out. there are even more gray areas than the two, which makes it even more fascinating. here is reflected how kings are not so godly, and that sometimes people of power shun responsibility. true and raw human behavior is depicted as one would see in real life.
the series is well-cast, with Sean Bean (Boromir of Lord of the Rings fame) at its helm, costumes and settings very well-made, but the best part is George R.R. Martin is involved with the production so the series is much more related to the novel. dare to watch A Game of Thrones and experience what it was really like in a twisted medieval world. it airs in the Philippines on HBO every Sunday, at 10pm
