Weiss, and starring Lord of the Rings veteran Sean Bean.

In the cold seasons of past, the Starks of Winterfell Castle relied on their fierce resiliency to survive the harsh conditions. But this winter, supernatural forces are preparing to launch a devastating attack. A great battle is brewing, and whoever emerges the victor will ascend the throne.

Posted by: Lisapurple66 from Tinley Park, IL on 04/18/2012If you want to become lost in a story without committing to the 5-book series, this is the way to go. I did happen to read George R.R. Martin's entire series, but whoever was responsible for condensing his first book into this season 1 story was a genius. The actors were cast perfectly, and the story is very close to the book without the minutiae. This is definitely not for the kids, but a rollicking good time for the adults!
