From Amazon's Editorial Review: Based on the best-selling book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is an epic drama set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. That basically means IT KICKS ASS! I haven't read the books but plan on it eventually, but boy is this HBO series amazingly engrossing. My Season 2 Blu Ray should arrive this week. In time to watch it over the next month, leading up to the Season 3 premiere on March 31st on HBO.
