Earlier this year, Winter Is Coming launched a new Game of Thrones review show called Winter is Coming Live. Each week, host Adam Rady brought a panel of Game of Thrones fans together to discuss where the HBO series has been and where it was going.
When Adam isn’t watching, thinking about, reading and dreaming about Game of Thrones, he also has written, directed and acted in his very own fantasy web series, Walking in Circles.
Adam and his team have recently released the second season of the series and we wanted to give everyone here at WIC a heads up to check it out.
If you are looking for a fantasy fix, Walking in Circles definitely provides a binge-worthy experience that could appeal to Adam’s fellow Thrones fans, despite being a weeeeeeee bit less dark than GOT.
While on the surface Game of Thrones and my series, Walking In Circles, are vastly different; the first being a very serious drama, while the latter is more of an adventure comedy; I believe that fans of Game of Thrones will find some similarities they will enjoy. The most important of which is that in both series people find themselves invested in the characters. While the setting, tone, and events help compose the scene, it’s the characters that are always at the heart of things. This type of character depth is what works so well in Game of Thrones and also works exceptionally well in comedy, because the more that you care about the characters, the more the humor finds a way of paying off in unexpected ways. Additionally, it doesn’t hurt that we have some pretty awesome actions sequences. Regardless, I hope everyone will give it a shot, as there is a lot of time we have to wait for the next season of Game of Thrones, and Walking In Circles can be a fun and entertaining change of pace during the wait.
