TV doesn't get better than this.,
This review is from: Game of Thrones - Season 1 (Includes 'Creating The Visuals' Bonus Disc - Amazon.co.uk Exclusive) [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I rarely find myself captivated by anything on TV these days, but Game of Thrones certainly changed all that. Not only is it a brilliant adaptation of the book it's based on, but it manages to incorporate new scenes and confrontations between characters, which improve upon the book even more. The casting is also inspired, Sean Bean shines as Ned Stark, as he did as Boromir in the LOTR while lesser known young performers such as Jack Gleeson (Joffrey) and Maisie Williams (Arya) do a fantastic job, recreating the characters perfectly. If you're a fan of the fantasy genre, or hell, even if you're not, this series deserves a watch, it's the best TV I've watched for years.
