Geeks, rejoice! HBO has a brand-new show on the horizon that's sure to satisfy your love for period costumes, dragons, and swordplay. Based on the medieval fantasy novel series A Song of Fire and Ice, Game of Thrones will follow kings, lords, and soldiers as they fight over the rule of a fictional world; Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, and New Moon actor Jamie Campbell Bower are among the featured stars.
The network unveiled the first promo last night before True Blood, and while it doesn't give away much, it does tell us a few things: 1) um, Winter is coming, and 2) if the horror feel is any indication, we're in store for a good deal of deceit and death. Does HBO have another success on its hands? You be the judge when you read more.
