      It looks like a grown up version of what is, let's face it, a rather juvenile "Lord of the Rings." I look forward to it.

    "Games of Thrones", looks really awesome. People who like these Fantasty Video Games, and The "Lord of the Ring" movies should like this. Also, people into Swords also. They are very popular for collectors of series or movies.
