I am well into my forties and have seen many, many series over the years and this is without doubt one of the best series I have EVER seen. Beautifully shot, fantastic story (far too in depth for this little review), amazing acting and creating a completely believeable alternative world of ours. It took 3/4 episodes to get into (and lots of referals to the family tree, enclosed in the DVD case!) but once you get to grips with who is who, its amazing. Quite graphic and sexual, but that adds to the story telling. Overall an amazing production, that deserves all the awards and accolands that it wins. WOW.

If you like a in depth drama with lots of plots then Game of Thrones is for you. I can clearly see this is a well made series but it was just to in depth for me and too many sexual references. I was lead to this originally because a review I read said if you liked Lord of the Rings you would like this. Now I am a great fan of Lord of the Rings but did not like this, just a warning too anyone who has heard similar reviews that you may not like both.

Knew little of the books or tv series. Friends had been going on about this show for ages (friends with normally notoriously bad taste) so I ended up picking up this box set to see what the fuss was all about. I was transfixed within minutes. This is without doubt one of the best tv shows I have ever seen. The storyline, acting, costumes, scenery are top class. Moving in parts, gruesome in others, shocking and sometimes sexy. Sadly, I got through the 10 episodes within one weekend. Cannot wait for series 2!

This series is basically the first book on screen, which is awesome! Great characters and a gripping story, without a doubt my favourite fantasy series.

Game of thrones is a gripping, intellegent and bloody fantasy drama. It is essentially a story about family but if you are looking for exciting battles and romance this is defientely suited to you! Packed with brilliant performances and beautiful special effects.....
You won't be disappointed.

and there isnt a better dvd to cuddle up on the sofa with. This has it all great cast, scripting and special effects. Of course it helps that it is based on an epic book but like so many epic books it could have translated badly onto film. This is gritty and realistic with believable characters and nail biting endings. If you love your fantasy miss this serious at your peril. Pick a side Lannister or Stark and revel in their triumphs and share their defeats.
Winter is coming.....best get this DVD before the snows come...
