ABOUT GAME OF THRONES:
Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.
Game of Thrones roughly follows the storylines set out in A Song of Ice and Fire, set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. The series chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the realm's noble families for control of the Iron Throne. As the series opens, additional threats emerge in the icy North and in the eastern continent of Essos. The first season is a faithful adaptation of the novel. Later seasons, however, began to diverge with significant changes. According to David Benioff, the show is "about adapting the series as a whole and following the map George laid out for us and hitting the major milestones, but not necessarily each of the stops along the way."
The novels and their adaptation derive aspects of their settings, characters, and plot from various events of European history. A principal inspiration for the novels is the English Wars of the Roses (145585) between the houses of Lancaster and York, reflected in Martin's houses of Lannister and Stark. Most of Westeros is reminiscent of High Medieval Western Europe, with its castles and knightly tournaments. The scheming Cersei, for instance, calls to mind Isabella, the "she-wolf of France" (12951358). She and her family inspired Martin, as depicted in Maurice Druon's historical novel series The Accursed Kings, in particular. Other historical inspirations for elements of the series include Hadrian's Wall (which became Martin's great Wall), the legend of Atlantis (ancient Valyria), Byzantine "Greek fire" ("wildfire"), Icelandic sagas of the Viking Age (the Ironborn), the Mongol hordes (the Dothraki), and elements from the Hundred Years' War (13371453) and the Italian Renaissance (c. 14001500). The series' great popularity has been attributed in part to Martin's skill at fusing these disparate elements into a seamless whole that appears credible on its own terms as an alternative history.
"The Sopranos in Middle-earth" is the tagline that showrunner David Benioff jokingly suggested for Game of Thrones, referring to its intrigue-filled plot and dark tone combined with a fantasy setting that incorporates some magic and drago

Great after show analysis
One of the better thought provoking after-show GoT breakdowns. The team provides an interesting character by character analysis, reinforces plot points and does a simple comparison to the book where needed. Very helpful in getting the full GoT treatment.

I could get through this
The sexual harassment the male compare delivers to the female compare on the first episode is disgusting. I had to sop listening. I may skip to later episodes maybe he is imprisoned by then.
