For the uninitiated, Game of Thrones is based on the first book in a series by bestselling author George R.R. Martin. You’ll find the books shelved in fantasy, but while there are elements of magic and strange creatures, the books have a far broader appeal than most of its shelfmates. Rather than focusing on a quest, A Game of Thrones is more about political intrigue and strong, flawed characters. There’s no definitive good or evil in the series, bringing humanity to a genre that’s far too often steeped in archetypes.
Check out the trailer on GetGlue to get another glimpse at the epic drama that’s sure to continue HBO’s excellent track record. Watch the extended preview tonight at 9pm that airs before Mildred Pierce, and clear your calendars for the series premiere on April 17 at 9pm. Seriously, you don’t want to miss this.
