The perfect boxset to binge watch - It has absolutely everything and I think it is suitable for both the ladies and the gents. The female leads are actually quite empowering and I don't think they alienate or put off a female audience.
There's action, comedy, love interests, attractive characters, and brilliant stories. It doesn't matter if you have not read the books; whilst the scripts and plots follow the books in the beginning, toward the later seasons the show has sped ahead of the books and going in different directions with les input from the author. I haven't read the books, so I in a way had the luxury of not knowing where the stories were going from episode 1. For those who have read the books, there may be disappointment or there may be equal joy in watching the show. Either way give it a watch!
One last note... If you live at home....don't watch it with parents in the room.... awkward!
I had heard quite a bit of buzz around this series and, wanting to get into another American series I gave Game of Thrones a try. I think it is excellent. A well acted, scripted and set out series. I haven't read the books, however I have seen the first television series. It does acknowledge fantasy at points, which for me, I'd rather it not be there. Thankfully though, there are plenty of realities in this merciless, mediaeval marathon. Peter Dinklage plays the character of Tyrion Lannister and his performances are outstanding. His character is very smart and quick-witted, and this helped me to settle into the first couple of episodes.
Nudity and swear words run throughout this series, as too does the blood. However, I didn't ever think that was over done, or put in simply for the sake of it. It had a context, and was executed enough.
For an American TV series, there are not as many episodes as you might expect, (10 in total for both seasons). However, with each episode lasting around 54 minutes and a story that keeps you watching, it can be forgiven.
Included in the blu-ray box set is a useful episode guide with the 'House' trees of the cast, to help you know who is who.
There are even more twists and turns in season 2 of HBO's epic, 'Game of Thrones' -- and thats just the people in it getting killed with swords. It seems that in this show, if you're not a main character, you stand a good chance of surviving. Plots get more tangled, making things a little difficult to follow at times. Battles, lies, deceit and surprises are all here. Emotion runs high as does the tension. CGI is animated with quality. The fantasy elements are still here but as I said for season one, the realty parts are shown far more. More nudity and nakedness throughout the episodes. A great cast is still present.
The music throughout the series is very good. It feels epic and grand which is befitting of the show. The box set is well presented -- you can see the images of this that I have uploaded to Amazon. I watched this on blu-ray and the picture quality is excellent.
consistent good acting, extremely realistic scenes, even the CGI parts and clever how it underplays the supernatural elements which have a 'eerie rather then Hollywood blood & guts slasher style.
Becomes more enjoyable on a second viewing making plots and all those twists and turns between the many increasing characters understandable. There is little to fault in such a amazing series except the occasional 'Modern Expletives which fit more with Tarentino then a Medieval Fantasy Epic, this in my opinion lowers its standard especially when spoken by a posh speaking dwarf....... ok maybe with the roughest characters in the Series as there's always been coarse language, this does make it more real to life then so much children based Fantasy, As for the sex scenes they were generally infrequent and sensible paced except being at times a 'cheesy soft porn' mechanical act to shock by the Directors / Producers of the series nevertheless it was good to include some sex, graphic violence alone would have made it too one dimensional !
As for Series One there could have been more time spent on Visary's, he never had quite enough involvement like say Joffrey and could have lasted a episode or two longer. Series Two had a lot of new characters some of which Balon Greyjohn could have had more time spent on and it would have been nice to have seen more of Qarth its city / inhabitants ..... and the Creepy Warlock Pryat Pree to play a more significant part over a few episodes... he came and went far too quickly. This is the problem with having so many significant characters how do you give them enough time each..... tricky but I think the whole production team done very well with such a difficult task !
Very much looking forward to Series Three on DVD.....why don't the hell bring this out before Christmas rather than make us wait to Feb sometime, Its icyness what with the Wall and White Walkers make it perfect winter night watching, come on HBO lets have for Christmas !!
I wish Star Wars would have been done as a Adult Fantasy like this !!
