The irony of it all is...

... I don't even have a subscription to HBO, so if you're looking for episode-by-episode reviews of A Game of Thrones, you've come to the wrong place. I have read the books though and I'll be picking up A Dance With Dragons when it's published.

I saw it. It was good. Not the strongest start ever of an HBO drama, but its a high budget fantasy drama on HBO--and that's pretty good.

Taran said...

Yes, I too have to wait for the DVD set. Sigh.

well then I'm certainly looking forward to your review after you get the DVD set.

What was strange was that it didn't feel like your typical pilot, which try to get a strangle-hold on it's audience from the start. A bit slower, not much action, taking more time to introduce most of the characters, than usual.

In my book it's a good thing, but I'm not sure it will capture any viewers that haven't read the books.

It captured me, and I haven't read the books. However, I am a fan of fantasy in general, and also willing to put in the time and effort to try to understand a more complex tv show.

Apparently a 2nd season has already been confirmed for those of you watching.

In Spain, released 9 of may, will be shown by Digital +, a cable or satellite channel, but sometime after will be shown by a conventional channel, it isn't the same in the USA and UK?

Just watched the second episode - totally hooked now. Excellent writing, acting, and production values.

Incidentally, I also watched the first three episodes of Starzz's "Camelot." I was pretty psyched, because I love Eva Green and Joseph Fiennes. However, it has terrible writing, uneven acting, and shoddy production values. Ah well!
