Just a look at the opening intro font makes you realize how much polished is this show in every aspect of production. Every visible detail gets enough attention to achieve great quality. Except the most important one, the story.
Starting with the most obvious one, the story moves too slow. Sure GoT world is huge, there are many different worlds/cities/character/stories which enable to always show something "interesting" while taking a very small step in storylines that matter. But in the end it is still the choice to sacrifice storytelling quality for more screen time. In some cases the tempo of main storylines could be easily improved and some selfserving side stories completly cut off.
The main issue however is how GoT world is constructed. Martin just copypasted various stuff from historical/fantasy books and made minor or no changes at all. Everything you see you saw/read somewhere else because well he just took the things he liked from actually creative people and made this vast, epic world. For me in comparison to Carnivale (even if its a different fantasy genre) his world seems empty, disconnected between it parts. The links between characters seems rushed, have very little depth and are sometimes prematurly cut off just to make a shocking scene.
This whole show/books feel more like a reverse engineering product of what people are drawn to than a piece of art with some vision it should be. Even when you see reactions of people to some disgusting scenes, sure at first they're mad at the detail of the sadism shown but after a while they are glad they felt strong emotions just by watching a show. And GoT has far more of these simple psychological attention methods.
In the end its a pretty good show but it cares far more about the skin (that gives immediate attention) than about the soul (that will make you love the show even after everything is said and done)
Having not read the book, I was surprised by the series and found myself enjoying it so far immensely. It is full of love, murder, greed, betrayal this TV series is magnificent. Costumes, scenes, actors, everything is as it should be. It is truly George R.R. Martin's outstanding work come to life on the screen. It's a #mustWatch#visualTreat#breathTaking#mindBlowing TV series
The action of politics over relation. #mindBlowing Lives will be lost, new allies will be made and the old relations will break.
Everyone will fight for the Iron Throne to be the Lord/Lady of the Seven Kingdoms.

#mustWatch#slowPaced This TV series is based on A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones. This TV series is based on politics, kingdoms, wars, magic and what not. Although the nudity and sex shown in the TV series is at a higher level but the story line and the plot of the series keeps you interested in it all the time.
Disclaimer:- if you start watching Game of thrones you might want to see all the episodes in one go .Well it has happened with me. It is an addictive Tv series and one has to have self control while watching it. Personally for me it is one of the best story ever.
#mustWatch#guiltyPleasure Game of Thrones is a medieval drama-fantasy series based on the series of books- 'A Song of Ice and Fire' by George R.R. Martin,the first of which is called 'A Game of Thrones'. The main theme of the book/series is,as the title suggests the royal battle between seven fictional kingdoms for gaining authority over the 'iron throne'. The series acutely shows the medieval pattern of life,ethics and royal politics-the shrewd means of war,the stereotypes of society,the hierarchical patterns and behavior and is very intriguing in its portrayal of distinct and powerful characters. Not the first of its kind,but certainly different in its thrilling content and perfect presentation,Game of Thrones has become the new favorite in prime-time television,despite being criticized for the gory war-scenes,vulgar deaths and overtly sexual contents, The first season shows the benevolent king of the north,Eddard Stark getting entangled in a murder and the family brawl of power-struggle between the Baratheons and the Lannisters. We see the carefree Baratheon ruler being killed and subsequently the conspiracy of the Lannisters makes Eddard Stark get all the more embroiled in the grim world of treachery and murder and is beheaded. This is the climax of the first season,post which the power conflict between royal families and ministers take a new turn. New relationships are etched and more and more tragic betrayals take place. Newer families get entangled in the conflicts creating greater confusion. The quintessential human greed for power is depicted through these conflicts,gruesome battles and unexpected tragedies that these lead to,make the storyline terse with suspense,horror,tantalizing action and unpredictable twists. Human nature is also explored in its most nascent,uncivilized state-the medieval world the storyline is based,it is neither status nor education decides one's future,rather it is the power and self-aggrandizing politics that ensures one's survival. But there are mysterious creatures as well,whose identity cannot be justified and they make the whole concept of human survival and death,a farce. Hence the world of Game of Thrones is a bit of politics,and myth,and history,and mystery all of which combine to form a racy,and thrilling plot which has been running successfully since four seasons. With a brilliant set,screenplay and cast Game of Thrones is the series to watch out for.
