... Game of Thrones

(Sunday, 9/8c, HBO)

Over the years, HBO has redefined the mob drama (The Sopranos), the prison drama (Oz), the Western (Deadwood), the historical drama (Rome), the vampire horror show (True Blood) — and now it's time for the adult fantasy epic to get the HBO treatment. George R.R. Martin's best-sellers provide a marvelously sprawling canvas for this ravishing tale of families battling for power in an imaginary land. There's magic in the margins, but this is a decidedly flesh-and-blood (emphasis on the latter) story of honor, treachery and adventure.
