Drumroll Please!

Every Monday, I find myself clock watching.

I sit in anticipation 
of the new showing 
of my favorite TV show.

I am not sure if any of you out there have seen it... 
but if you have not,
it is A MUST!

I was laying in bed one Sunday afternoon 
playing on my Kindle Fire & bumped into an HBO trailer.

It was all about the creation of the show, 
the fashion, 
the characters 
the whole idea behind the plot.

I was sucked in & lay in bed all day and night 
(until 3am to be completely honest)
watching the whole first season.

S kept telling me I was crazy but, I could not get enough!

At the end... I have to admit, I did cry a tear or 2.

I was so into the characters, story lines & what was happening 
 that when it was over 
I found myself searching to see when the next season would air.

I was in luck! 
The next season started only 2 weeks away.

I called my cable company the next day & ordered HBO.
A few days later I came home and found S on the couch watching the series 
He was sucked in too... 


We are now into the second season 
& we can not wait to see what is going to unfold.


I did a little research and found that the story line
has come from a series of books.

Now, mind you, I usually am not the type of person to read a series of books.
I tried that years ago with Harry Potter and lost interest when
the first movie came out.

This series I am going to read though!

The author is George R. R. Martin & 
the series consists of 7 books.

1. A Game of Thrones
2. A Clash of Kings
3. A Storm of Swords
4. A Feast for Crows
5. A Dance with Dragons
6. The Winds of Winter (not yet released)
7. A Dream of Spring (not yet released)

The plot is clever, the characters are impeccably chosen &
the producer has a marvelous eye for detail.

It feels like you are watching a movie that never ends!


My favorite characters from season 1 are:

Of Course, you have to love Eddard Stark, "Ned"
He is the protector & honorable man of WinterFeld.


Khal Drogo is my second in line.  
The Dothraki leader... need I say more.

He marries Khaleesi (Daenerys Targaryen).
The rightful queen.

(that whole situation is HOT!)


My next favorite is "The Imp"

Tyrion Lannister, little guy but packs a punch!


Then, finally "The Bastard"
Jon Snow

There has to be something said about him getting the
Sh** end of the stick his whole life.


Game of Thrones airs Monday nights on HBO at 9pm.

Watch it and let me know what you think.

Or, if you are already a fan
leave me a comment and let me know who your favorites are!
