Duncan recommends the HBO Series Game of Thrones, based on the well known book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. He argues the library should own season one of the highly popular series for multiple reasons:
“Firstly from an academic perspective Game of Thrones should be added because it provides ample inspiration for writing courses offered by Whittier College. Secondly, it can be used by religion classes to discuss the prevailing religious structure within the series. From a personal enjoyment perspective this television series provides amazing entertainment, making the viewer constantly question their place within the universe.”
Sounds like a compelling argument to me, well done Duncan! Don’t forget you can also watch all the episodes online via HBO.com.
