Game of Thrones: Robert Baratheon
Robert Baratheon is the king of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and sits on the Iron Throne. He united the people by overthrowing the mad Targaryen king and has ruled for 15 years, but conspiracy and intrigue surround him and threaten to bring down his reign. He is married to Cersei Lannister of the powerful Lannister family and his son Joffrey Baratheon is the heir to the throne.

Great series by George R.R. Martin. Well worth the read for any high fantasy fans. Since I don't subscribe to HBO, I'll deffinately watch when each season becomes available on Blu-Ray. However, I don't know what this has to do with Tech Republic.
This article is linked in my TechRepublic newsletter? To quote the editor, "The Tech Sanity Check newsletter is my daily update on the world of technology." If I cared about this geek TV SHOW, I'd go to a more appropriate site. This has nothing to do with tech, and I can't think of a less relevant topic.
What's up with not giving the cast due credit? I'm up to #9 of 12 and have only seen Sean Bean credited.
Looks like a master work of art in progress by the photos you can guess the producers are trying to build a powerfull and longlasting iconic work. I think it could be at the high of LOTR or even better. Can wait to see start!
The OP doesn't know about the water cooler. Like many of us, doesn't think the water cooler was a good idea, and so refused to use it. TR wanted you enrage you to the point where you'd make your first comment in two years. :p
I mean, yeah, I'm asking a stupid question, but the above article is one of those gallery thingumies. Maybe TR was barfing a bit - seems to do it a lot of late, as they keep taking it out back to tune it up a little.
