One should not think fantasy is something for the children like bedtime stories. This TV show shatters stereotypes at all. There are no completely right and perfect heroes here. There are no caricature villains seeking to take over the world for the sake of the fact of taking over. The heroes of the book and of the show are like you and me. Every one of them has his own vices, weaknesses, desires, motivations, skeletons. All of that is laced in an incredible ball of passions, intrigues, cunning and betrayal along with such seemingly antagonistic things like honor, duty, friendship, love. This is the world of the Game of Thrones, it is complicated but fascinating and unpredictable when one is fond of it.
