Late to the party, but Game Of Thrones was pretty great.



Excellent fantasy drama that developed very good characters that you felt for and cared about. They offed several prominent characters throughout the season to keep you on your toes, assuming you havn't read the novel as I hadn't. It seemed like every time I was thinking, They Rock!, they ended up dying soon.

Overall, my biggest gripe was the Fellowship Of The Ring style ending. All of season 1 seems merely like a buildup for the remaining seasons rather than a stand alone season. I'm not really a fan of that.

As for the future. With Eva Green off that Matturd Camelot, she can finally fill the role she was destined for in Melisandre


Mark Strong would be a great choice for Lord Stannis.




It's a shame we gotta wait another 9 months before the new season, but I sure hope the hype leading up is as fun as the 2 year hype before season 1 was.

  16. I watched the first 2 and just need to get around to the rest. I just was so excited about true blood starting I forgot. For comparison though I still have only watched the first 6 episodes of Spartacus. I just don't watch much tv. I did watch all of the episodes of Archer in about 3 days though, that is the best animated series I've seen in a long while.

  19. "All of season 1 seems merely like a buildup for the remaining seasons rather than a stand alone season. I'm not really a fan of that."
    It's my understanding that each season is going to be a book, and this was book one (haven't read them). Guess the book is structured that way too, to set up the next book in the series.
