The minute I saw and heard Ned Stark talk, I fell in love with the show. The story line is excellent and so are the characters. The acting is outstanding and so is the photography. Each character is his/or her own person and sometimes I forget that they are just made up people. I started watching in 2012 and after that I had to get season 1 to catch up on things. I just finished season 3 and it broke my heart when they killed off Robb and his mother but despite that I still love it and can't wait for season 4.
This one gets hated because of nude content it has.
Game of Thrones is an epic medieval show, that is, from the looks of it, had a big budget that is utilized nicely and well executed. And takes a lot of time, but that's reasonable. Also, it is based on a series of books. Although, I admit that I haven't read the books yet, but if this is really based on the book, I can imagine that the book is also terrific.
About the budget that I mentioned above? Let's talk about that.
Plot: Well, the plot is based on the book, and it's a story about political control and power, hence the name of the show. Now this is where the show shines; there are lots of unexpected turn of events and twists that will jump at you. Even the main character could die, or the least unexpected one could die all of a sudden. Because of that, you will never know who are the protagonists on this show. Unlike the other shows, the protagonists survives, fights the antagonists, wins and saves the day. This show isn't like that.
Props/Materials: You can see that they really had spent the budget on the props and decors that well. They're really decent. Their props had a simple, if not, nice design. Like the tents in Tywin Lannister's camp, decorations in the King's Landing castle, their weapons. Not to mention the needed extras. That would take a lot of work and budget.
Soundtrack: Orchestrated medieval soundtracks. While they're not much significant in the middle of the show for me, I really love the music on the opening intro.
Actors: Great acting, and you never see someone who puts their head or looks in the places that they weren't meant to, and has a pale acting. I didn't see anyone that look liked they were struggling with acting.
Characters: I haven't read the book yet as I said above, so I'm not sure that the personalities of the characters are different apart from the book. But chances are that they are in their same qualities and background when compared to the book. This show has lots of characters that you'd love to hate, you'd love plainly. But great, nonetheless.
Effects: The opening title is astounding, that it looks like it's also an intro from a Blizzard/old school Age of Empires-esque RTS game. While effects aren't much that present in this show, they're lifelike and well looking. Two examples are Daenerys' dragons and the blizzard behind the icy Wall.
Overall: The tension in seasons increases as the plot passes. This is an example of a show that has a big budget and it was used well. And also, the reason while they only film 10 episodes per season and why they take much time. It's quality is very high that it looks like you're not watching a TV show but a movie instead. For those who are going to start in season 1, it might seem boring, weak and chaotic at first, you might have no clue what is going on in the first place. By the time you start season 2, it's different. I really like this show because it somewhat depicts the system and the society in the medieval times.
Great books to great TV series. With the constant boring formulas of police shows,medical shows thrown out year after year, Game of Thrones brings something fresh. Brillant casting. Only thing is I wish there was 20 episodes per season
After reading the books, there is almost nothing wrong with the series itself. The creators did an excellent job and did their best trying to make the TV show follow the books as much as possible, all thou the scenes don't necessarily follow the particular order in which they are shown in the books.
maybe its just me but i think it could be awesom if brad stark became a dragon rider he can after all se through the eys of animals and human plus the preview king had 3 dragon riders and the dragon queen also has 3 dragon but that is just my opinion
It might be good if there was more action instead of politics and sex scenes. This show probably has more sex scenes than californication(also sucks). This is painfully awkward to watch with your parents. Don't do it, ever! If you want a good medieval show, watch Merlin. That show is amazing, lots of action, lots of humor, and no sex scenes.
I thought i'd give this show a try and i couldn't make it past the first episode. It was really boring. I thought about giving it another chance so i watched the second episode and i still wasn't hooked. I guess this show is not meant for everyone, at least not for me.
I think that this is the end of . dramas after watching The Sopranos, I did not expect with Mad Men,I think that there is nothing can be done dramas bench when the Mad Men merchandise in , I did not expect have Game of Thrones. It will become God as.
I got interested in checking the show out because it's filmed in my homeland, Ireland. Halfway through the first season and I'm hooked. You can check out some of the great locations used in the series at
You do not understand how difficult it is to tell people how much of a great show this is being an almost eighteen year old girl. "Nudity!" "Naked" "Sex" "Porn" oh my god it's not based on that and I read the books starting at like 16 so whenever they say that I will get traumatized, it's a bit too late in saying so regardless, Game of Thrones is a wonderful series. The books were stellar and the show follows up on it as while. The characters are very interesting and if anything they add to the visual portion needed as I read the books. The third book was the best in my opinion and being that it will take up two seasons (that being the third and fourth) makes me excited and ready for next year to come. Season four here we come.
It's one of the best programs on TV today. I love that it's very graphic and hope other TV programs follow suite. This is not a children show. I wish I could buy a wall size map so I could follow the progress of the characters and help me keep the story lines in order. I can hardly wait until the next installment.
