Based on the bestselling book series, A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, this HBO fantasy drama is a tale of duplicity and treachery, nobility and honor, conquest and triumph.

The horrors of war, the danger of shifting alliances and the anguish of intra-family rivalries raise the dramatic stakes, matched by the glorious visuals. --Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post
So far (judging from the first four episodes), it's living up to our highest expectations. --Matt Roush, Tv Guide
Those who make the investment are richly rewarded. There's enough tension, betrayal, treachery, greed and sex, after all, to fill eight seasons of 'Scandal'. --Chuck Barney, San Jose Mercury News

At my husband's insistence, we tried watching it again a year later. If you get past the first show, it really isn't bad. The story is so compelling, it really is addictive to watch and I am enjoying the show.
I have to say I was impressed with the story line and level of detail from the first minute. It's not very often that the title sequence IS IMPORTANT. I watched it a few times to make sure that I had my "geography" down. I am VERY picky with any type of "story that takes place in an ancient land with knights, armor and horses" but I didn't find myself rolling my eyes at all. The actors have bad teeth and look "grubby enough" for this type of land.
To give an example of other shows I enjoy: Dexter, American Horror Story: Asylum. The Sopranos, Mad Men. I enjoy good writing and a certain level of violence. Give this series a shot, but don't watch it if you can't PAY ATTENTION. It's not for glancing up at while you're folding the laundry.
