Game of Thrones and What Inspired It

Game of Thrones and What Inspired It

April 28, 2015 Guests 0

Ever since it’s break onto the HBO TV scene in 2011, Game of Thrones has been a spectacular hit. But even before that the A Song of Ice and Fire book series has had an impressive empire of followers. The reason of the success of the series might seem obvious to the average viewer, especially after Peter Jackson’s adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series seemed to break new grounds for the fantasy genre. However, there is a much larger, much more varied history at work behind the style of storytelling than what meets the eye, and with season 5 having just started (which you can watch if you have HBO Go or DirecTV), now is a great time to take a closer look at what goes into these stories we all love so much.

But beyond the warm weather and excuse to drink frozen things with little umbrellas in them, there’s a lot… Read more »
