'A song of Ice and Fire' is often mentioned on this forum, but I've never read any of the books.
Anybody seen the new TV series 'Game of Thrones?
Info and trailer: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0944947/
(you must log in - due to partial nudity - to watch trailer).
Seems to have a relatively big budget. 1st episode - 1 hour - was shown on Sky Channel Monday.
Jean Bean as Lord Eddard
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister (unknown actor, who had the leading role in 'New Amsterdam', a series that only went one season)
Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister.
I'm new to the whole Westeros world, so it was a bit confusing. But not bad. Could be an interesting story later on.
