I haven't commented much about a favorite show, Game of Thrones, on this blog. It is one of the few shows that is nearly always "must watch TV." For a while, we even had friends come over every Sunday night for dinner, board games, and then GoT. I can understand why some people aren't watching it, and I respect that. I enjoy the political intrigue and military strategy shown in the show, and even toyed with the idea of using the show as a leadership tool for videos and blogs.
Part of the thing that makes GoT so compelling is the level of detail for show. Sets, props, costumes, it all appears meticulous and REAL. Today, I offer a glimpse behind the glass:
