5.0 out of 5 stars Respect at last., 21 July 2011
This review is from: Game of Thrones - Season 1 [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
At last someone(HBO)has seen fit to produce a full and undiluted screen version of this genre.I have not read this book yet but having previously read all the Deverry and Krondor novels I felt right from the start of this production that here was a world I understood and was comfortable in.The story flowed along and nothing was left out with regards the blood,language, incest and intrigue.In short,respect at last for the genre.
The acting was also first class.Normally I find the stories are so watered down that the actors disinterest is obvious for all to see.This can not be said of this production and it seems to me that these type of stories are now where actors can extend themselves in a way they would only have been able to previously in theatrical productions.
All in all I think this is groundbreaking stuff and will hopefully set the benchmark for future projects of this nature.
The actual story has been described in detail by others and all I can add to this is that people previously unconvinced by this genre may now think again.10/10 from me and roll on part 2.
