Game of Thrones (War of the Roses)

I stopped watching "The Game of Thrones" in the first season (and from the howls I'm hearing from fandom I'm glad I did.)

The main reason was, I was reading a number of books about the War of the Roses at that time. When I learned George R.R. Martin based his novels on that bloody history, I decided I wasn't going to bother watching any further. I already knew how that ended, and suspected the fantasy version would have a similar trajectory.
