Game of Thrones

Postby GregB » July 17th, 2017, 7:46 am

There's a lot of media hullabaloo these days over the latest, and apparently penultimate, series. I've never seen a single episode as I'm not very keen on this type of mediaeval fantasy, although 'Lord of the Rings', book and films, was exceptional and in a class of its own.

Any fans of the series here?

Love GOT :grin:
Read the books, seen all series so far, can't wait for the next series.
But I agree, not really quite on a par with LOTR.
Cheers

I've not seen it, occasionally feel I would like to but not got around to it. Very good cast.

No. I prefer the real middle ages, either history or fiction.

So do I as a rule but have a feeling I would enjoy Game of Thrones.
A few years ago I enjoyed, 'Merlin', with Colin Morgan in the title role, can't remember the name of the young Arthur but Anthony Head played his father, Uther Pendragon and John Hurt did the voice of the imprisoned dragon. I really loved it even though it was fantasy and would happily watch reruns.

Not mediaeval but I couldn't get to grips with Beowulf which I thought I would like.
