HBO are smashing out the new and original series at the moment. My wife and I have been hooked on all things Boardwalk Empire and the next series that I’m very much looking forward to is Game of Thrones which stars Sean Bean, Mark Addy, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Lena Headey, Kit Harington and Aidan Gillen.

Summers span decades, winters can last a lifetime, and the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond.Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men… all will play the ‘Game of Thrones.’

A new original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series.

The new series which is ten episodes long comes to the UK on Sky Atlantic on 18th April, a day later than in the US but if you want a sneak peak, you can watch the first 14 minutes of the show right here.

Please note, this is pretty gruesome stuff!
