This episode we review the season 5 premiere of one of the greatest and most cinematic television shows ever produced, “Game of Thrones”, based on the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin. Loosely inspired by the War of the Roses, we stay on the topic of dynastic wars and succession by revisiting Fred Zinnemann’s classic adaptation of Robert Bolt’s play “A Man for All Seasons”, an essential classic for any Anglophile or lover of theater.
