Watch The Wonderful Opening Credits For HBO’s GAME OF THRONES

If you haven’t yet seen HBO’s new hit series, check out the gorgeous map-based title sequence and see what you’re missing.

I loved the first episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, and one of the real highlights was the stunning opening credits. The credits present a map of the continent of Westeros, and some of the lands beyond the Narrow Sea, setting up the geography of the show’s locations. Each episode will feature different areas of the map, depending on where that episode’s action takes place.

I really like the way each actor has the house sigil of their character next to their name. A fun bit of detail.
