Game of Thrones: IZ Reloaded seizes the Iron Throne


So I seized the Iron Throne at the Game of Thrones preview screening by HBO Asia. I know. I look like a king! You can view photos of the bloggers, journalists and guests at the screening over at HBO Asia's yfrog page.

Game Of Thrones is a brand new HBO Original Series based on George R. R. Martin's best selling "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of fantasy novels. The show focuses on seven noble families as they fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. It's like "The Sopranos in Middle-earth".

The Hollywood Reporter has a good review: "Game of Thrones has all the elements that lure viewers to shows like The Sopranos, et al. That it’s a fantasy series shouldn’t scare anyone away, because – like Lord of the Rings – there’s a real allure to costume-dramas that pair dense mythology with all of the crowd-pleasing elements of war, honor, pride, lust, power and, yes, even humor. Thrones has all of those in spades and supports them with exceptional storytelling, strong writing, superb acting and some stunning visual effects."

Game of Thrones premieres Aug 28, 10pm on HBO Asia.
