Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss as showrunners and main writers. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones. Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, and Raj are all fans of the show.
In "The Comic Book Store Regeneration", when Raj and Leonard are debating whether to meet who they think is Nathan Filion, Raj mentions that they met the actor who played Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and he was a jerk, but they still watch "Game of Thrones". Leonard points out that the reason Harington was a jerk was because Raj rear-ended him.
In "The Skywalker Incursion," when Amy compared Bernadette and Howard picking champions to a trial by combat, Penny compared it to the duel between the Mountain and Red Viper. When Bernadette asked if Leonard made her watch it too, Penny answered that she actually liked it because it has dragons and coitus.
In "The Application Deterioration", Raj mentions the events of the episode "Mhysa", in which Balon Greyjoy receives a box from Ramsay Snow containing the severed penis of his son, Theon Greyjoy.
