We’re a little late with this — I probably should follow George R.R. Martin’s livejournal a little more closely, but there are just too many NY Giants posts to handle — but, anyway, this is a ten minute (10!) preview of HBO’s upcoming series, based on Mr. Martin’s book of the same name.

Entertainment Weekly has posted an exclusive slideshow of photos from HBO’s The Game of Thrones. Television or film adaptations of great works of fiction always leave fans a little anxious — the filmmakers have just one shot to get it right, after all. Judging from these production stills, however, it at least seems like the visual direction is on the right track — it doesn’t look like a fantasy series, but like a gritty work of historical fiction, just like Martin’s books read. We are fingers-crossed optimistic that this series will, also like Martin’s books, reinvent the genre, this time on TV.
