So, I’ve finished watching the first season, a ten episode season of Game of Thrones, and what started out as a fantasy show with some nudity and an impressive set and costume budget quickly turned into one of the best epics on television that I’ve ever witnessed.
Game of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO
I am absolutely blown away at the lengths the show goes to tell a great story, and the emotions that it stirs in me are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before.
It is as though the writers, producers, and actors have found a way to draw me in so deeply into the mythology that I curse each time an episode ends.
Every plot started has a resolution, no question is left unanswered. This isn’t like Lost or its copy cat counterparts. The scale of the drama is equivalent to watching an hour long movie each week.
If you love drama, romance, mystery, and fantasy, then Game of Thrones should be on your must watch list. Personally, I can’t wait until the next season of Game of Thrones and wish that shows constantly ran so that I wouldn’t have to wait half a year to see what happens next.
If you’ve been watching it, without writing any spoilers, what do you think of it?
I was initially going to do a review, and point out various plot details, but if I redacted it so that I didn’t spoil it for others, the post would have looked rather ridiculous with sentences like, “can you believe that she did that! I was gasping as she did that thing at that place and then everyone was watching!”
TL;DR – If you haven’t been watching the ten episode first season of the show. Find a way to watch it!
