|Daenerys in Game of Thrones|
Game of Thrones season one was not a flawless story. It was equal parts epic, complex, dire, and even at times disgusting. The gritty realism of George R.R. Martin's blockbuster series makes the fantasy epic unique, but it also highlights the depravity humans are capable of sinking into without censor. In short, it is for an adult audience only.
Season 2 debuted last year, but if you are like me and don't have HBO, Game of Thrones Season 2 released today. I am interested to see a new chapter for the broad spectrum of characters including Daenerys, Rob Stark, Jon Snow, Tyrion, and Arya as they all, in their own way, battle for power, even if the power is simply a power over themselves. Check out a trailer for the season here. For those already caught up with the first two seasons, season 3 debuts on HBO in March.
