  • Brilliant introduction

    I loved nearly every moment of the premiere episode. Most characters were vividly drawn and well-acted. As in the books, that will likely turn out to be a bad thing as such dire things begin to happen to the Starks. If I have a complaint (and I don't) it's that it wasn't longer and that it's not a mini-series that could be run every day or two. Waiting a week between episodes won't be fun. Some of the characters were under-utilized but it's hard to do justice to a cast this size each episode so I hope they'll flesh out Arya and Catelyn more.
