Westeros: The Series

Post by Sonny » 18:09:47 Sunday, 03 September, 2017

Has anyone seen this fan-made video?



Although a "modern-day" story of Westeros would make a terrible tv show I think it's interesting imagining how things would turn out thousands of years later. It almost reminds me of House of Cards.

If they focus less on shoehorning in muh popular GOT iconography, and focus more on having a cohesive plot that just so happens to be set in a modern Westeros, I think it could work.

That trailer sure didn't give me the impression that's what they're doing though. Prime Minister Lannister. Those Stark COAs. A, presumably, pet wolf. You can never make judgements this early, but I'm not hopeful.

I'm half expecting all major and relavent 'minor' houses to have survived through centuries (or millennia), which is stupid, but hey. Might turn out to be watchable.

Well its a fan made web series so you can't expect too much from it. That's if they even make episodes without getting sued first

Yeah, I didn't notice that at first cause I didn't visit the youtube page and just clicked on the link on mobile. I'm presuming they've already thought about the legal side of things.

Honestly if it's fan-made I'm a bit more hopeful.
