Based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, this sprawling new HBO drama is set in a world where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime. From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and ancient Wall that protects the realm from the mysterious darkness beyond, the powerful families of the Seven Kingdoms are locked in battle for the Iron Throne. This is a story of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honour, conquest and triumph. In the Game of Thrones, you either win or you die.Extra Content:Making of Game of ThronesCharacter ProfilesCreating the Dothraki LanguageInside the Night's WatchFrom the Book to the ScreenHistoriesCreating the Show OpenCast Audition "Dragon Eggs"Anatomy of Episode 6 "A Golden Crown"Commentaries

It's spellbinding to watch but if you can't for personal reasons stomach scenes of rape or sexual violence this isn't for you. It desensitises you after a while with the level of rape, sexual abuse and general violence but it's far more abruptly in your face than reading the books.
Having said that, the stories told in Game of Thrones are brilliant. I did wonder how on screen they would get around the underage marriages which are common place in historical/period settings but not so much, in fantasies. They made the characters appear over 21 or 16 in the series, is the answer. Even the male characters as played by Sean Bean are likely a good deal older than the characters in the books. Maths says the older characters should be in their thirties. They're not in the series.
Yet, for all the violence there's some definite feminist elements to game of thrones. Women are seizing control of their identities from the male dominated world's. The female characters are strong and feisty, manipulative, ruthless, defiant and definitely for the most part not meek subdued wives, in the case of lead characters. I enjoyed those characters, but sadly you have very much the abuse/rape/repression of minor/unnamed females throughout. It ain't lord of the rings.
Once over the shock of the brutality, it's hard not to feel sympathy for some of the "bad" male characters like Jamie who is a murdering sob getting it on with his sister. Which makes game of thrones different, the bad guys often do good, the good guys often commit outrageous acts of evil and harm. There are no "pure" figures but their are understandable ones, like Ser Jorgen. Helps considerably that the actors are extremely handsome or rugged, unlike the books. Every main male character is either fit or he is a bad guy or corrupted. It's that simple. Female actresses to - stunning and most of us normal women, wished we woke up looking half as good as they do.
Surprisingly you do follow the Houses with sympathy and get drawn into their characters, despite the lack of good and evil - ie there's no real angels and definitely a lot of hell raisers.
Personally I've been left with a sudden intense crush on Iain Glenn after watching this. HIs character is probably the most human, flawed and unfortunate. House Stark are interesting. I prefer though Danys character and the history of the dragons.
So I watched it with no expectations and determined not to let reviews (good, bad or ugly) colour my impressions or cloud my thoughts.
What an utter mistake of epic proportions that turned out to be.
The first episode had me absolutely hooked. Now I absolutely don't have any spare time at all because if I'm not working or riding then I'm watching this! My husband joking stated he was filing for a divorce if I didn't stop watching it..... my response.... ok...but you don't understand...Sean BEAN is in it!! And what's more...John Snow... he's so gorgeo ..erm... a good actor. And then on top of that the Dothraki... see..they are horse warlords... I mean it's like...you know. it's so...
Fortunately he's a star and just laughed, sat down with me to watch an episode and now he's hooked too! Please...no spoilers for me... but I SOOO hope those dragon eggs hatch! :D
This 1st season has an abundance of nudity,sex,incest,gratuitous violence and graphic gore.
I absolutely loved it,so if that's not your cup of tea avoid it.
The plot ducks and dives all over the place amongst the various different families that feature in the saga,but this is the setting up of a long and enthralling series so I can forgive the amazing number of characters that we are introduced to over these 10 episodes.
I certainly think that all the hype about G of T is well justified,and I'll certainly be looking out for the future seasons to buy on Amazon.
