A couple of us who write for HBOWatch pondered briefly the question of just how “Thronies” became familiar & later enthralled with the saga and the eventual HBO hit.
Remember that the book saga, A Song of Fire and Ice, saw its first volume published in 1996 and had many millions of readers before the TV series even started. The HBO series GAME OF THRONES, however, has broken records for the channel and is about to start season 2. So to help us find out some answers I set up this little poll. Help us sort this out by responding to this simple poll and feel free to add comment.
Please check the most appropriate answer for you:
Now, for a bonus question for fans! I caught our Editor-in-Chief using the word “Thronies”, which I used here, to describe the fandom nation assembled for GAME OF THRONES. Is that the accurate term for the fan base or just the term we are sticking with here? The polls are now open! Let us know how you came to love Westeros whether it was first on paper or on your TV screen. We await your response.
