Hello all. I am an MA recipient from the Department of Communication at Northern Illinois University. My graduate study of media focused primarily on long form television, the third golden age of television and adaptation for television. This blog seeks to examine one of the most discussed and acclaimed shows of our time from a viewpoint that is scholarly and critical. My perspective is also one of skepticism in terms of some of the claims made about, and praise directed towards, HBO’s Game of Thrones. I look forward to sharing my interpretation and analysis with you. Welcome to the Nate’s Watch!
