Good, but far too slow paced to be very good.

Great show, really looking forward to Season 2. Was suprised that I would like this kind of show but the writing and production value and cast are amazing.

How on earth could anyone not find this show amazing. Ignore GriffonMaster, the guy hasn't a clue.

Best TV of 2011
Sky Atlantic's fantasy series made medieval life look sexy and dramatic. The Emmy-winning show continues to thrill and engage a loyal audience, mainly thanks to large amounts of sex and violence. That old chestnut.

Almost, but not quite
Far too slow, and unevenly paced, with too few cliffhangers or highlights. Some miscasting didn't help.

In the Game of Thrones you win or you die
Where do I start? Brilliant writing, acting, casting, sets, special effects, cinematography, score and overall production values. HBO took a risk with this show to be sure, and I'm glad they did. TV needs stuff like this to push boundaries and raise the bar. If there's one criticism I can give then it is in regards to the pacing, although I am aware this is due to the nature of the adaptation. I imagine it was quite an effort to fit such a large book into 10 episodes! Oh and while I'm at it give that man Peter Dinklage an Emmy!

Good but not amazing
The acting's great but it's not the second coming like some people would lead you to believe. Takes a while for the show to heat up but once it does the ball gets rolling and you'll enjoy the ride. The story itself is deep and interesting so it makes for a great show. Certainly one of the best shows of the moment but nowhere near as good as things like The Wire, Soprano's or Battlestar Galactica. Watch it though, it's great. Still room for improvement.

What can I say that everyone hasn't said already? This fantasy/drama is easily the best thing that's we've had on tv for years. Every aspect of it is fantastic. The casting and acting, the storylines, the sets, and the superb production, all make for such high quality tv that it's impossible not to imagine an awards-fest for it. And Jon Snow is gorgeous!!
