GoT First Episode Review



I know that its' already been out for quite a few days, but I've been busy with some things so haven't been able to say what I thought about it yet. Just to start off with I absolutely loved this first episode. I know that I'm more than a little biased since I'm such a huge fan of the series, but even still I feel like it was a very well made show. There were some small things changed from the book that irritated, but I expected these things and overall was surprised that they were true to the story on such a huge amount of stuff. The characters were all incredible, with a special nod to Peter Dinkalge who played Tyrion and absolutely stole the show during his brief scenes. Can't wait for the series to progress and his role to develop. Most of the complaints I've noticed are directed towards the Dany and Khal Drogo sex scene at the end. I have to agree that they played up a strange rapey angle that wasn't really how it came across in the book. But I'm confident that they'll fix this relationship in the upcoming episodes. Other than a few small things like that I really can't find any faults with this episode. If you're not already watching I strongly encourage you to start while the show is still beginning. Critics seem to love it and it's already been renewed for a second season.

  2. I never read the books , but am liking the show started off very slowly but it kinda picked up.. I'm hoping for more gore as it's my thing. But so far looks like it will deliver some shockers... Seriously killing a ten year straight off the bat is bad ass.
