Game of Thrones

My sister recommended this TV series to me, and I thought I'd finally get around to watching it and I admit I was a little shocked.

She described it to me as a series based on a book, where a number of kingdoms existed in a land but Winter is approaching and invaders who love the cold are coming and threaten the kingdoms.

I mentioned to HK that I was going to watch it and he said don't watch it in front of the kids.  I was intrigued.

So tonight I watched it with hubby and woah.  It must have an R rating this series!  There were gory beheadings and lots of dead people, sex scenes (omg there was MIDGET porn!) and lots of nudity and violence.  The first episode was a bit confusing, so I am not sure how the following ones will be.  Maybe it will all gel together.  But I was shocked at the ending of the first episode.  Murdering children!

Now I am curious what the books are like!  One of my friends, Moo, on WoW has been telling me to read the books but I never got around to it.  Looks like I'll have to make time now.
