Review: The first series of it's kind that shows realistic accounts of life in medievil times. A well deserved rating of R18+ as it depicts the grusome truth of this period in time, with plenty of nudity & gore. Besides this Game of Thrones is an excellent series that will have you hooked from the first episode, as "betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms".
