DAILY MANIFESTO

A Show of Ice and Fire

Posted on Thursday, January 18 @ 20:17:55 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
HBO has picked up the rights to turn one of my favorite book series into a television series. Awesome.

Considering how good The Sopranos and Deadwood were, there is actually potential here for them to not totally screw up. My wife, Miranda, might even love the series more than me. She practically stalks author George Martin to find out when the next book is coming out.

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, go do yourself a favor and buy A Game of Thrones right now. It's easily the best fantasy I've read since Tolkien. Don't expect the usual in these books, they're gritty. The hero might take up the magic sword and save the princess, but he also might get drunk, break his leg and die slowly of gangrene. It's pretty unpredictable.

The good guys certainly don't always win. Sometimes it's hard to tell who the good guys even are. Hopefully, they're the guys over at HBO.
