The next Lord of the Rings? Maybe…
This show was brought up a few weeks ago in our podcast (this spawned the nickname Kelly “King Times” Karnetsky). We talked about kings and sword fights and hot chicks getting banged (and seeing their boobies). Well, I’ve just sat down and watched the series, from beginning to current, and here’s what I think about it.
The first few episodes were a tad on the slow side. There was a lot of character development and story building going on which generally makes movies and television, especially television, run a bit dry. There was, however, a lot of boobs flying around the screen and that made it worth watching through the building of the back-story.
After the first few episodes, the series “begins” in earnest. The “Game of Thrones” starts to take shape and we can see how much skullduggery and shady business there is going on. People getting poisoned, stabbed, raped, pushed out of buildings, deceived, assassinated and whored upon.
Oh yeah…I didn’t mention the whores. There’s LOTS of whores – most of them naked.
I love whores. Especially naked ones.
The series stars Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings), Lena Headley (300), Mark Addy (A Knight’s Tale), Emilia Clarke (Really nice boobs) and Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis) along with a host of others, wielding swords and being whores.
All in all, it’s a very good show. With plenty of action, espionage, sword-play and naked chicks, I have no problem recommending this show to anyone…especially if you’re a fan of the likes of The LOTR trilogy, Spartacus, 300 and others.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy this show so check it out on HBO. You’re very unlikely to be disappointed.
