The fantasy world of George R.R. Martin is brought to the small screen in a dazzling way. The characters are well developed and the actors who play them provide stunning performances. The story will keep you guessing and gives some surprising twists. This is produced by HBO so expect some language and nudity.

Its like living in another world !!

Season 1 of just another deeply racist Television series is the extremely sleep inducing bore i really knew it was period.Season 2 is most definitely not changing my mind about this extremely over hyped and overrated series so far period.

I thought this show would be good however I couldn't get past the first episode. Perhaps it is because of the death of a child! I understand that is how it was in those days but I hate seeing children die no matter what era in time it is.

READ the Books! So much better, and without the nudity and coarse language that concerns so many.

I'd heard so much about this, I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I wasn't disappointed. Once you get into it, and think you know which direction things are going, the plot takes a different twist than expected. Very clever writing. I'm hooked. The cast is terrific; the settings; the music; even the introductory sequence is mesmerizing. Epic series. FIVE STARS.

I wouldn't say the first season is great, but it is good. It mostly sets up for what is to come. I thought it started off strong, slowed down to almost a boring pace, then picked back up again. Overall though, it is worth checking out if you like that LOTR type genre/atmosphere. The second season is better in my opinion and I'm waiting on the third now.

I watched this series on the recommendation of friends who know how much I enjoy epics and sagas. I was a little afraid, thinking I would be totally lost because I have not read the books. It's actually pretty easy to follow. The music, the sets, the costumes, the actors (esp Sean Bean), the sheer detail and scale are all incredibly magnificent; but for me, the storytelling is plodding and oppressive punctuated by acts of sex or violence. I was prepared for brutality, but I was not prepared for the graphic sexual content. It is definitely not Tolkein! I do intend to read the book(s), but I do not know if I will continue with series.

Another knock-off of Lord of the Rings, yet a really compelling story that is unnecessarily drenched in blood and gore and sex. Maybe the series was dumbed down from the book to appeal to the masses. The acting is wonderful, especially the always fascinating Sean Bean (who played Boromir in LOTR). The music and photography are terrific also. Worthwhile watching even with the negatives.
