2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Game of Thrones - Season 1 Gift Set [Blu-ray] [2012] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I appear to be very much in the minority (I was bored by the first book) but I really am not enjoying the TV series. I get that it is a feast of dark, complex political manoeuvrings, that it is very well cast and acted (mostly by Brit and Irish actors I happily note) and it is a totally brilliant visual spectacle (the music and title sequence is amazing), but it doesn't do it for me. The violence is every present, bloody and vicious, the female nudity gratuitous as hell and the lack of humour, other than the wonderful Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister, makes the whole thing somewhat of an ordeal of blood, guts and gore.

A good plot ruined by the equivalent of a disturbed teenage boy's wet dreams and love of gratuitous violence. I'd be interested to find out whether many of the people who love this series so much are women.

My female house-mate recommended this gratuitously violent boy's wet dream to me. Funny old world!

I agree Ali. I've read a lot of this sort of genre, but this is not well balanced. Little or no humour, as you say. I found myself wondering what kind of people decided on the editorial decisions about the sex and violence. They got it wrong as far as I'm concerned.
