Game of Thrones is one of my current favorite TV shows, and as soon as I finish comps reading, I just know that it’s going to be a favorite book series as well. I read the first book after seeing the first season of the show, and I was pleasantly surprised at how the two matched. I’m told the HBO series strays farther from the books as the seasons continue (which seems to be a mark of an adapted series) but stays relatively close to its source material.
This Literal Trailer, though, made me laugh-a lot. It pokes fun at some generic tropes, and it doesn’t stick to one genre. It simultaneously critiques fantasy, TV, and our fascination with trailers-they’re a genre with rules themselves. It’s light-hearted, but there’s truthiness in the humor.
