As you probably know by now, Game of Thrones is HBO's most successful television show to date and the most pirated television show in history. For those of you who may not know, Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin's series of "realistic" fantasy novels entitled, A Song of Ice and Fire. The show was named after the first novel in the series, A Game of Thrones. I have to admit that I really only jumped onto the bandwagon once the second season was in full swing. I really wouldn't have it any other way though, as I was able to watch episode after episode all at once!

Now I'm pretty much starving for more and cannot wait to begin reading the novels, as everyone I've spoken to ensures that they are a wonderful companion to the show and offer a more in depth look at the many plot lines involved in the show.
My favorite character (by far) is Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington in the television show. I was rooting for his character since the very first episode that he was introduced. Without giving anything away from the story (for those who haven't read/watched), I truly believe that he will redeem himself by the end of the series and that he will turn out not be Ned's son at all, as he, and everyone else has been led to believe.
