Watch Game of Thrones

HBO's Game of Thrones has brought epic fantasy into the mainstream. With interweaving storylines shot in multiple countries, this show is proving that magic and dragons can be sophisticated. Viewers love the complex plot, gorgeous backgrounds and ample nudity so typical of HBO shows. Every week, Game of Thrones manages to shock viewers with incest, murder and betrayal.

As five would-be kings battle for a single throne, royalty is killed, innocent men are tortured and dark magic is created in shadows. Heroes discuss assassinating teenage girls, monarchs kills infants and noble girls disguise themselves as pageboys. Even fans of the book series on which the show is based have been surprised by dramatic twists created by the show's producers.

Part of fans' love for Game of Thrones is due to the show's attention for detail. Producers hired a conlinguist to create a fantasy language for one set of characters. Lavish costumes and set pieces bring the medieval world to life. Truly ugly actors are cast for parts that demand unsightly appearances. A little person is one of the most popular characters. HBO truly brings the Game of Thrones world to life.

Magic is common on the show. Zombies and ice creatures threaten from the North. Dragons and a powerful princess are growing strong across the Narrow Sea. Face-changing assassins are penetrating the kingdom, and the Lord of Light's devotees are bringing fire and death to the capitol city.

Despite the dragons, shadow assassins and magical priestesses that populate Westeros, adults are enthralled by Game of Thrones. HBO's decision to gamble on a series of fantasy novels is paying off as the network infuses the show with frequent nudity and violence to keep viewers hooked.
