Excuse Me Whilst I Drool

by

Having spent an hour or so pouring over HBO’s site for Game of Thrones, a seemingly faithful and gorgeous looking adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, I can safely say I’m sporting wood and it’s not just because of the chick playing Daenerys Targaryen.

It just looks like they’ve done things properly. Meaning, paid full heed to the source material. If we’ve learned any lesson from the past decade or so of film adaptations, it’s to stay true to your source when you bring a comic or a novel to the screen. Heed the author’s intentions. The atmosphere created within the work. The words themselves whenever possible. It was a success as a novel for a reason. Thus, to do it correctly, stay true to the original.

Looks, so far, like HBO is going that route and I couldn’t be happier or more eager to see more.
