It's been running since 2011, but today the TV epic Game of Thrones begins its final season. The series has broken viewer records and won 47 Emmy awards. It tells the story of the bloody struggle to win the Iron Throne in the fictional kingdom of Westeros. The first episode of season eight will air on SoHo - the same time it airs in the United States. Reporter Brooke Jenner gauged the mood of fans, and RNZ film reviewer Dan Slevin joins us with his hot takes.
