Game of Thrones
Winner of 26 Primetime Emmy Awards and nominated for 85, this show needs no introduction. For those who don’t know, Game of Thrones is a series based on the book by George R. R. Martin. Season 1 of the series begins as the winters draw near in the unified seven kingdoms of Westeros, after the long summer. King Robert Baratheon asks his dear friend, Eddard Stark, to become the ‘King’s Hand’, the most powerful appointed position, which earlier belonged to Eddard’s mentor, Jon Arryon. Reluctant at first, Eddard accepts the offer, planning to leverage his position in investigating his mentor’s murder. Meanwhile, in the eastern continent of Essos, the exiled children of house Targaryen plan their vengeance on Robert, who had destroyed their house to claim the throne. To this end, Viserys Targaryen arranges his sister’s marriage with Khal Drogo, leader of the Dothraki Warriors. Finally on the northernmost border of the Seven Kingdoms, the sworn brothers of the Night’s watch guard ‘The Wall’, a 300 mile long fortification of ice which has stood erect for thousands of years. Though the watch guards against the wildings living on the other side, rumour afloats of a new threat arising in the land of perpetual winter. What is this new threat? How do kingdoms fall and decline? Why is everyone on perpetual war? Bust all these secrets in the epic clash of seven houses. Watch Game of Thrones S1 every Friday night at 10 pm on HBO Hits.
