The best way to watch any series is in English. Even if it is a challenge, you get so much more out of the series when watching in the original version. For example, do you know the different accents of the characters in GOT ? They really do add to the characterization. In the series many words have been invented to describe the different roles, jobs and attitudes. Also to be authentic the actors had to learn several fictitious languages to differentiate the many different tribes and groups. You get all of this if you watch in English !

If you are new to GOT you may not know this: the TV series is an adaptation of a trilogy of novels called A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. Both the novels and the TV series are set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos where noble dynasties fight, plot and scheme for the right to ascend to the Iron Throne. To add to the complication of political intrigue there is a dangerous exterior threat to the entire realm (“Winter is Coming”) from fierce creatures that lie far north of The Wall.
