"Lord Snow" has officially made me a fan of Game of Thrones. I watched the first two episodes and while it was a fun little show, I did not really buy into the hype. This episode convinced me that this show deserves all of the attention it has been getting and can be a really good series for HBO. Showtime had one of the best period dramas of the decade with The Tudors, but HBO has the potential to have won for the 2010's with Game of Thrones. Sean Bean was perfect in the role tonight in an episode that did not even feature him heavily. And the show has one of the best child actors on TV right now as the cocky young ruler.
Lots of sword fights, lots of insults, exactly what this show needs to keep viewers hooked. Good episode tonight.
