Even today, many of us wonder: what is Game of Thrones or GoT. In a single sentence: it's a Harry Porter for grownups. Based on RR Martin's novel A Song of Ice and Fire, this mini-series hit the silver screens in April, 2011. Well, every year it brings a season of ten episodes, and it has just finished its 5th season in the year of 2015.
Why should I watch it: Because, we all like fantasies; kids and old ones alike, you can be sure of it. But, very wisely, GoT has kept fantasy at a palatable degree. It is absolutely not all about White Walkers (Snow creatures), mystical Wildlings, Dragons and Black Magic. But yes, it is very much about kings and queens and their realms. And their ultimate goal of ruling the mythical place of Westros and its iconic Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones is a very special TV Show, also, because of its fascinating suspense and storytelling style. The suspense is such that you just cannot ignore the next episode, you'll wait for the Sunday night with all the excitement & preparation. And, the next morning you'll be talking about it on social media, friends and colleagues.
Although, Game of Thrones is a TV Series it splurges on its making cost without any limits. It has surpassed many showy movies when it comes to cinematography and stunning special effects. GoT uses latest technology to display its stunning visuals like giant castles, palaces, statues, mountains, plains and rivers.
When fantasy, suspense and visuals meet the impressive dialogues, the combination becomes unique. The dialogues are completely different from any other period, fantasy or history dramas. GoT hires a very talented team of writers who not just extract their creativity in plots, but also deliver 'wow' dialogues. It is a gentle treat for literature lovers.
When we talk about impressive dialogues, we just cannot ignore the impressive actors who deliver these catchy, sharp and hitting sentences. Game of Thrones brings you a set of old and new talented actors through their rigorous auditions around the globe. If it is said that these actors are the backbones of GoT and its success it would not be exaggerated. Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Jack Gleeson, etc., are just a few to be named; it's teamed up with many others. They are so impressive that they will hover over your head till next Sunday, if, of course, you become an ardent fan of Game of Thrones.
A TV Show's or a movie
's success highly depends upon the musical score. GoT is quite lucky at it. Game of Thrones possesses an icon theme (music) which plays at every beginning of the show and sometimes in-between. I've seen people setting its theme (music) as mobile's ringtone; some have saved it in their iPods. I've seen the music being played at many important occasions such as fashion shows also. The background music and songs can be rated 9 out of 10, and so can be the whole show of Game of Thrones
