“Oh, my sweet summer child, what do you know about fear? Fear is for the winter, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the long night when the sun hides for years and children are born and live and die all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little lord, when The White Walkers move through the woods.”
— Old Nan, Game of Thrones
Canal Plus is in the middle of this HBO series based on the first book in the fantasy trilogy by George R. R. Martin and let me just say - I.am.hooked.
It´s got everything:
a complicated plot, an enormous cast, beautiful production values, political intrigue, madness, incest, murder, attempted murder, a half-seen creepy supernatural threat,
lightly clothed barbarians, swordfights, sex, a charmingly snarky dwarf and. . .direwolves!
They´re using Northern Inuit dogs. So gorgeous!
I may have found my summer reading.
