  • A Honest Game of Thrones Review

    Review is from my IMDb is not a good show,The characters, story, and plot are just bad. The environment is boring, and dull. This world is nihilism, and its completely characters aren't gray, they are just dark. No balance in real life between good and evil in ones "good guys" are stupid and brain dead. Its like watching ***ed villains (who aren't that smart, and threatening) outsmart, and fly around in circles the brain dead heroes. Death became nothing but a cliche in the have use porn to keep your attention, and fancy about desperate. The books don't freaking matter,you read the books or not. This show is an one is slowly paced, and the characters lack any life to of being unrealistic is Ned guy loses because he made three mistakes. Trusting Littlefinger,telling the Queen about her incestuous affair, and lacking any tactics. This guy should be able to spot trouble or problem situations. He doesn't spot them. He simply ignores it. Joffrey would had been one in real life will tolerate can be assassinated, if they stray away. Many revolution happened, and royalty had been killed.

    The politics in Game of thrones is real ***ed. You have to be cunning in order to survive in this world. Villains like Naraku from Inyusha would have zero effort manipulating them. the characters aren't theme in game of thrones says the more you love the weaker you are. Love makes people strong, and it gives us strength to defile naruto anime series tackles you are nothing without love. I only read two books, and dropped Song of Fire and Ice at the 12 chapter in the third book. I watched season 1-4 for free online(I'm too smart to waste money). The red wedding,and viper vs the mountain did not surprise me. Bad guys in this universe win about 80%. Arya in real life would had been raped,tortured, and then killed. The author chooses who to kill, and gives other characters his divine protection. Martin killing the Red viper is bad writing, and the spear is laced with a poison similar to a mountain should have died as well in the arena with Martell. Apparently Martin makes sh@t up as it moves thinking for the future of the does everything for shock previous score was 5/10 (its average). I was being to kind to the fans. Now the score is 2 out of 10.

    Additional for

    The poison is a neurotoxin. Mountain would had been paralyzed immediately. The show will fall flat, just like the final book will. George Martian ran out of ideas.
  • its ok

    its ok
  • 'You know nothin John Snow'

    Great show can't wait for season 5, but i really think they should extend the seasons, 10 episodes are not enough.
  • It's coming down the stairs even after promising a lot

    To say the truth, the directors are losing their concentration. The little details are rarely paid attention to. First two seasons were just great. But even if I wanted to, I couldn't have given it less then 8.5, it promises sooooo much. It could have been so much better. The good thing about a long series is, it's never too late.
  • Game of Killings

    Its one of the shows you really need to see before you die :)

    Waiting for Season 5 :) :D

  • Ntaks

    Best Tv Series Ever !!! - I am waiting Season 5 LIKE Crazy

  • Stellar

    HBO's Game of Thrones has the budget, actors, and setting to tell an intricate story with enthusiasm and prestige. Season 1 was fantastic and Season 2 ended masterfully.
  • Game Of Thrones.

    Game Of Thrones it's one of the best TV series of the last 3 years.
  • wonderful

    I like Game of thrones and House of cards very much!!! I watch these shows every month. I recommend to watch thhese shows at . Who can name other shows which are similar to Game of thrones and House of cards. Did you play game created on base of that show?
  • Soap Operas

    I cannot understand America's fascination with soap opera. Dune was made into a movie and more books followed but it did not continue as middle, middle, middle of a soap opera series. I guess that is better than America's fascination with death with the same story line that goes from program to program. One of the main characters has their life hanging by a hair. Tune in next week to see if they live. A child is always kidnapped. A love affair must develop between two characters, and on, and on. Nothing original. Just change the characters. Then TV had a plethora of vampires. Story lines were getting repetitive. Enter the zombies. Now TV can rehash the same story lines only with zombies. That almost being exhausted a new angle had to be tried to rehash the same old plots. Enter the mostly good zombies of Resurrection. Now another rehashing can be had. That too is wearing thing. Enter the evil aliens to rehash. That didn't last that long. Some brilliant writer took the Ebola outbreak as a plot for the next Armageddon. Be prepared. TV is due for a rehash. Of course watchers can always break out the Kleenex for the poor drug maker dying of cancer no matter how many lives are destroyed with his product, or pushing it. Thank God I got rid of my TV. I now read, listen to music, or watch DVDs. All have endings. Even the music has a coda. News I can get on-line. My entertainment time is just that now and not inundated with garbage.
  • Best show

    This is probably one of the best shows ever
  • The Viper

    I really liked Prince Obyern from the start,i really did not like how the fight ended with the mountain,he took his eyes away for 1 second & that was it!!I really liked this season,however i'm not at all happy that The Boltens are warden of the am glad that Tywin is dead!!I can't wait till season 5,it keeps getting better!!!
  • Sound Engineers Pay Heed

    Dialog soundtrack is difficult to understand. This is not an uncommon problem and being hearing-impaired it is EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. I wish that the dialog portion of soundtracks in general were shown more care and attention. IS ANYBODY LISTENING ?
  • Classic finale

    Will we ever seen as epic a TV show again! Game of Thrones just gets better and better!
  • wooow

    Probably the most epic show episode ever in the history of TV. Very bloody. Very Red. Black as dark.
  • The Battle Red at Castle Black

    Probably the most epic show episode ever in the history of TV. Very bloody. Very Red. Black as dark.
  • love it

    Love the series, the tensions and unexpected deaths. I get pissed when someone like Oberyn dies :( but it's something new and I like it :D
  • those eyes!!! and the head splasching lol

    just amazing!!!!!!!!!!
  • didnt expect that, wow!

    i dont like vipers death but he took too long finsh the big dude, shame he had to .
  • An episode filled with surprises

    Sansa Stark finally learns to play the Game of Thrones. Talk about mastering the art of media spin. Just enough truth in her testimony to make the lie about her aunt's death plausible.

    The trial by combat. What a shame. Oberyn should have remembered Yogi Berra's insight. "It ain't over till it's I can understand his desire to savor his revenge. But he really should have chopped off The Mountain's arms before indulging in his tirade.
  • Newbie, love the humor, so many characters, plots, shocking/awesome deaths, understanding it more

    Season 1 & 2 (14)
  • Why would you do this to me..

    Ive been waiting for a week for the next episode only to realize that I have to wait another week, why did you do this, its not like you are shooting the episodes in real time?
  • Fantastic....

    GoT has to be one of the best shows on television, ever produced.

    It pulls people in instantly, it has to have some of the most wonderfully written episodes (seriously witty/hilarious/devastating at times) and ALL of the cast have an amazing amount of chemistry - every actor on this show totally owns their character and their piece in the puzzle.

    This show is exceptionally confronting - it paints a picture that unfortunately is not that dis-similar to our own past (dragons/white walkers not withstanding) - whilst also creating an immense amount of edge of your seat viewing. We connect with these people and we want to see the good succeed and the horrible people get their comeuppance (Go Arya), but we also become devastated and at times blind sided by the narrative and visual spectacles that take out our favorite characters like lemmings.

    Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) are my 2 favorite characters overall.. These two totally act their arses off every time they appear on the screen. Both characters have been put through the wringer and yet they continue to fight.

    The chemistry between all the different pairings is amazingly perfect. Each actor has been chosen for their character with amazing foresight. So many of these characters end up in some very odd pairings and the chemistry that is created is consistent and refreshing that they all work so well together.

    As viewers, we expect a certain level from the things we watch. I watch and read a vast array of genres and have to place Game of Thrones as the best of ALL television shows i have watched.

    I am a huge fan of a number of shows - Haven, Once Upon a Time, Eureka, Warehouse 13, Supernatural, Reign, etc, etc, etc - but GoT definitely tops my list... I highly recommend this insane roller coaster of a show.
  • Gr8 all episode

    I am really happy ... see this next episode... well done .. mother of dragons ...
  • perfect medieval fantasy

    this show is the best tv series and i give 10 for what it is.
  • perfect

    I just love this show and I cant wait till next week for new episode. also it was a great start for this season. and im so happy that joffery death was on his wedding.
  • Great reintroduction of the show.

    The focus on "Two Swords" was not to further the plot, and that with a good reason.

    The main purpose of this episode was to remember the viewers of what they've forgotten over the last year since season 3, so they have to reintroduce the characters (at least as much as fit into one episode - see you next week Bran, Theon and Stanis), throw the new ones in the mix and show us the current state of Westeros.

    And that they did in an excellent way: the opening scene established that the Starks are beaten and the Lannisters are in power now, the introduction of Oberyn worked well, etc etc.

    So this could have been a pretty good episode - until the last 10 minutes.

    Probably the show creators thought, "pretty good" isn't good enough! We also have to remember the people why they love the show, why they waited so hard for a year and are so excited that it's back. So they ended the episode with a scene that made a "pretty good episode" into an excellent one. :-)

    Imho the whole Arya & the Hound sequence is a masterpiece: from the rather funny and lighthearted start to the thrilling entrance into the barn, to the right-paced escalation of scene to the Hounds fight to the chilling showdown with Arya.

    The whole thing could have been from a Sergio Leone-western (I'm a huge fan of the "Dollar"-trilogy) and would be considered a classic now.

    (Actually Arya's revenge looks like a homage to the climax of Leone's classic "Once upon a time in the West" -> a man takes revenge many years later in a similar way on the guy who killed his father when said man was still a boy and saw his father die: youtu . be / Lp_5dCfUp4s?t=2m40s

    BTW: while future Emmy winner Maisie Williams gets lots of (very well-deserved) praise for her performance as badass Arya, let's not forget Rory McCann's amazing performance as the Hound!

    Very well done, David Benioff & . Weiss, reintroducing us with the show, before the sh*t 's going to hit the fan and the whole thing escalates in the next 9 episodes (believe me! It will... ^^)
