I can tell you that Game of Thrones is phenomenal, visual beautiful, fantastic, exhilarating and action-packed thrilling rollercoaster that in many ways has not been seen yet in a tv show. I could say that and be absolutely right about it, but unless you have been living under a rock without an internet connection for the past 2 years than no doubt you already heard, seen or read for yourself what a masterpiece the books and/or this tv series is.
Game of Thrones is exactly like the title says: A game for the throne. Played by the people who think its their right to claim, conquer or inherit it. They all have different goals and different ways of getting to that point, but their goal is in essence in one way or another the same for all of them: to be recognized and remembered for their deeds. Off course that is not so weird since everyone in real life at some level thinks like that. But the main characters in Game of Thrones are different, either through noble descent, the power and money they have, intelligence or sheer luck they have become a member of one of the noble houses that rule the countries and can decide the fate and lives of hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of people within the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos.
The story, setting and characters are all taken from a broad range of European history. Most of what we see of the continent Westeros (castles and tournaments) is taken from High Medieval Western Europe from around the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries. But the story takes bits and pieces from other time periods as well. For example the wildfire that was used in season 2 in a brilliant strategic move of "The Imp" Tyrion Lannister during the Battle of the Blackwater is in fact Byzantine "Greek fire" which was invented and first used in the 7th century during battles between Muslims and Byzantines. This and other historical events, devices and characters based on real people out of history are all as it seems perfectly interwoven into each other into the fictional world of Game of Thrones by the author of the books George R. R. Martin.
For the actors who play the characters i have nothing but utmost respect. The performance they manage to show episode after episode is definitely what makes this tv show so popular. There is one in particular that without a doubt is one of the more popular stars of this tv show: Peter Dinklage who plays the role of "The Imp" Tyrion Lannister. In the 1st season he was portrayed as nothing more than someone who took advantage of his noble status and money to do whatever he wanted. But in season 2 (and hopefully the next seasons too) he transformed despite his disadvantage of being born as a dwarf (who during medieval times and in this fictional world are considered "lesser" humans) into a brilliant military and political strategist and someone who can very good and enjoys as he so very accurately said himself "play the game".
Game of Thrones is without a doubt the hit tv show of this decade. It started out with a story about medieval times, but slowly with every episode we see the world of the Seven Kingdoms transform into a place where mythical creatures exist, magic and dark powers are used as a weapon against enemies and where the dead are once more walking again.... Winter is coming, and i have no doubt it that it will be as spectacular and story-wise phenomenal as we have have seen in the previous seasons.
Gonna give this a shot over the weekend. Heard so much about it.
OMG reading the books now.
actually the season thumbnails are a bad choice. As if each season was about one house... ó.Ò
Started watching this since it was often trending on trakt. Great show. So thanks trakt!
Can't wait for season 5!
I still don't get it!
This show is awesome. The story line, background and characters are phenomenal. love it
Incest, Tits, Blood, Death, Ice Zombies, Dragons, Pimps, More Incest.
last season( season 4) was 'quiet', seems this one is starting off well. i'm already looking forward to the 3 powers battling for the iron-throne.
At one point in time there was no Game of Thrones. Shudder.
This is one of the best I've ever seen on TV!
Gripping from start to finish. A must see :-)
The best Serie that ever existed.
The most beautiful, interesting and amazing TV series for me. I love it. Also I wait the 8 season
arsagen — that statement really says a lot more about you as a person than Game of Thrones as a show.
the best show in the history
could not stop watching burnt up 9 days
I have seen season 1,2 and 3. But I can't get myself to continue. The series is beautifully made, it really is. But I just can't seem to get into the story.
Best TV shown in the world so far. Am waiting for season 7. #youknownothingJohnSnow
everything ends up being women in power
This is the first show ever to make me go from a 9/10 for the first 5 seasons to a 10/10 for the sixth one!There will be a before and an after Game of Thrones in television history. Must watch! And several times!
Finalmente acabou essas historia do Deus dos 7 reinos, Cersei finalmente fez a coisa certa.
OMBenGen...how can you leave us hanging..JonSnow~Targaryen King of the North...and Danaerys uncle......oh my Queen Cersi; Queen Yara; can't wait for the book(s) to come out....ARYA!! Waited a long time too see that revenge on the Freys...Thank You Mr. Martin...for these beautiful stories...bless you, sir..... #ShiftvW8
episode 9- was well worth the wait to see the demise of RamseyBolton, and episode 10 for this season finale????? a girl won't be able to wait a whole year for the 7th season... funny, that the eldest Stark child died and the youngest Stark child also died???? So whom is left, Sansa, Arya, and Bran and Jon Snow-Stark-Targaryan??? Winter Is Coming... #ShiftvW8
Read the books as they came out, I find this to be extremely well done and a mostly faithful adaptation of the books. The real heroes are the casting people and the art direction, I honestly can't think of a single casting decision I disagree with and feel as if the books have come to life.
The best show on television. Can't wait for Season 6!
Undoubtedly one of the best series I've ever seen. Everything on the show is amazing, the way the director adapted the book for the cinema was spectacular.
Epic series!My best recommended TV show ever.
Excuse me, but what exactly happened in season 2 through season 4? In every season there was one interesting episode, may be two. Season 1 was the best in my opinion; each episode was thrilling and exciting. I could't wait for the next episode. Now when I watch it I literally fall asleep.
Even though Khaleesi and Jon Snow are just as beautiful as they are boring. Yes, Daenerys is a strong and powerful woman, but all she does is talk and even though she moved a lot the past seasons, her character is static. On the other hand, what Jon constantly does is training. Nothing excited about that. Still, "The Watchers on the Wall" episode was one of the two interesting episodes of season 4.
The same happens with another show that started amazing and now there is almost nothing interesting in it: The Walking Dead.
Hate me if you want but my words are not untrue.
One of the best show I've watched in a long long time. The story isn't as typical as the American tv and movie stories we are accustom to. I am sick and tired of the white American super hero coming to save the day bullshit. In this show you shouldn't expect anything else but least expected. I love it. I mean look at it's rating. Unbelievable. Great plot. Great casting. Great writing.
Funny, in case of Breaking Bad I am actually one of those people claiming it's sort of the best drama in television history and can't understand most of the criticism that it gets from the "haters" (you know the drill).While in case of Game of Thrones I am on that other side, the "haters" side, I assume.
Generally spoken, I am genuinely interested in plot driven shows where you have a complex society and their circumstances explained to you. In lack of a better example, I enjoyed the anime MAOYU (Maoyuu Maou Yuusha) a lot. It focused on the improvement of society in a middle age like time. That involved for example trades for profit as well as for political pressure or education for the common men to improve the live of all. Compared to GoT it was obviously much simpler but you hopefully get the point that I am not condemning GoT for what it is or tries to be.
I just can't get into this show. I get where it is coming from, the scenery is actually really good, costumes are very well made, some likeable characters but all that is left after watching an episode are the basically countless breasts, some pointless violence, profanity and a lot of confusion due to the cutscenes that you see in every episode and the sheer endless amount of characters. Cutscenes from one house and plot to another. Because of that it feels like it's not moving forward at all and as a watcher I feel tortured and bored to death with all the unnecessary anecdotes, side characters and sideplots not bringing anything to the table.
The whole show tries way too hard and puts too much into the pot to attract as much people as possible. Sex, nudity, portraying women almost only as whores or otherwise pleasure material, incest, profanity, violence, partly even gore, all kinds of characters mixed together, great scenery, outstanding props/environments.As soon as something starts to make just a bit sense another cutscene and you're left hanging in the air until you forgot where you were or what happend before until you get back, resulting in you not caring for a single or at least most of the characters.Having partly awful actors doesn't help this show either (the guy playing Viserys Targaryen for example, wow is he bad). Actors who rigidly recite their text with almost no (plausible) emotion in voice or facial ex-pressi-on (basically every private scene of Eddard and King Robert).In addition it seems like this show is on of those where you have to prepare before watching it to be able to follow it, like reading up on Wikipedia, the books, searching for a relationships chart (which I did, cause I lost track of all the connections pretty fast) and the like.
Concluding I must say as a TV show this one fails big time (for me). It's bad. Really bad.After watching 5 episodes, that are roughly 5 hours, a sixth of the whole show for now I can't watch another episode.Getting back to the hater thing, I can't leave this being unsaid: It's a hilariously overrated show.Maybe I am going to take the risk and read the books instead, in some years when the hype is over. Instead of watching this I rather waste my time on Homeland that picked my interest from the start and was actually able to make me care about the characters.
For christ sake, more and more stuff different than in the book :/
I need to get caught up on the books before the season finale. This show is awesome!
@hagbard fair enough. I think the TV series and the books are a very different animal though, so they deserve different art! If you were interested (which you probably aren't) I've just knocked up some versions based on the book titles for you. let us know what you think.http://dl.dropbox.com/u/21609593/gameofthrones_booktitlecovers_bypetethelion.zip
I vote for the book covers ;-)
Surpassed my expectations.
for show the best show on television right now.
i read the books ages ago when i was a kid and the show does it wonders!
its incredible how often they are word for word from the book when they speak just goes to show how awesome a writer George R.R. Martin is.
for those who loved to read the books of George R.R. Marin: The tvshow has the same awesomeness!!
It is well worth sticking with, it won't take long to get used to all the characters and the story is easily one of the best I've ever read. It looks like they've knocked it out of the park with the adaptation so if it gets the backing it should, it should start knocking shows off the top of Top 10 lists pretty damn soon.
One of the best series I've ever seen in my life !!! Everything perfect, it holds from start to finish, who never watched I do not consider a series lover. Each episode is like it was a movie so well produced that it is !!!
An amazing tv show, just a little to slow
Awesome easy to set up
Then going to say much more than awesome I'm just sad that they're only making one more season and it's going to take almost 3 years to make it
cersei lannister did nothing wrong
La mejor serie sin duda. Riqueza de personajes, dirección impecable, historia rica en acontecimientos, tensión, suspense, pasiones... Lo tiene todo todo.
I know they're different genres, but I think Breaking Bad is superior to Game of Thrones. I love GOT, but they screwed up season five. Only dialogue, nothing happening.
I love Cersei so much.
Lost my interest pretty fast.. Stopped at season 3. Couldn't make myself watch it further than that.
que decir tremenda la serie es muy recomendable y entretenida la verdad es que tuve un trauma muy entretenido un poquito enrevesado pero muy adictivo
The Elder Scrolls: TV series
It would honestly be a regret if I haven't still watched Game of Thrones by now. Gladly I did, and it's marvelous! ✌
I hope this website on the firestick is free and all the other ones I’ve been trying to watch a movie on but haven’t seen one yet !
Fantasy. Period. War. Zombie. Dragon
Period. Fantasy. Zombie. Drama. War
I love what I have all the system getting the chance to do what I love with all the programs every object. [email protected] Lawrence....kooo
I'm on book 2 almost done. if you love the show and love reading, i strongly advise you to get the books to. because you will find yourself going back to watch the show again. the cast is brilliant. the characters that you hate, just know that's how great of an acting job they do.
Is one of the most brilliant shows of television. Somethings could had been left out, but all in all, it is a show to exercise your mind, and wishing they for more history behind each kingdom. Plus some of the most beautiful scenery you'll ever see. Great show for mythical lovers
I really don't understand why this is so popular. It's boring, horribly slow, unbelieveble, repeat after repeat, terrible acting.... Why? Oh I tryed watching it, thinking "it must be me; it must be good; do your best; make an effort". But I couldn't find anything in this series that entertained me, not even a bit. So just keep the hype going without me!
best to series of 20th century
Awesome love it can’t wait for the next season watched all up to 7
Great serie, awsome characters , please continu a few seasons

Hat ennek az evadnak is vege. Varjuk a veget.
Games of thrones is my favourite movie
The BEST show I have ever seen!!
Now this is the Game of Thrones I know and love, Dragons battling and fire raging, as for "Arya stark" it's about time we see her fighting and what a show.. Don't you dare close your eyes when you sleep or Arya will slash your throat.
Toch maar weer eens geprobeerd te kijken. Lijkt erop dat ik hooked ben
THE BEST SHOW ON TV. I SAY WANTING TO TO NOT RIDE THE GAME OF THRONES HYPE TRAIN BUT IT REALLY IS THAT GOOD.
"The North remember". Arya wins!
"Tell them that winter came for House Frey"
Watching the best series of all again! 60 hours in about 2 weeks time, let's go!
I'm caving to peer pressure.
When his brother is wrongly convicted of murder
The series has been awesome so far, can it get any better¿
Awesome show that you just can't miss.
I want to watch the last season!!!
love love love love it
Season 1 was interesting, season 2 was awful, season 3 was not really bad at all. If I would have watched season 2 before season 3, I would have stopped around episode 4 and never watched this show again. Thank the writers for Khaleesi, she's the only reason I continue to watch at this point.
So many plot holes, such horrible writing, boring drama, action is only near the end of each episode as to manufacture a cliff hanger. And the biggest issue I have is the complete ignorance to time. How long does it take to walk, compared to riding, etc? I have 3 seasons of Gotham coming up next, but getting through the next 3 seasons of GOT my be impossible.
I would not recommend this show.
This show is awesome but a little too strong.
I can tell you that Game of Thrones is phenomenal, staggering, surprising, beautiful, emotional, action-packed and thrilling rollercoaster. Prior to watching the shows I read all the books published till that time. Books>show. However, the show is superb, as the characters are so dramatic and complicated that we may love some but we love to hate some (e.a. Cersei). HUGE plot twists and turns that make the show so amazing. Literally, it is a game for the throne. More families that you can count t fight over the land of Westeros for ascending that throne. Save for the northern families, that desire their own homes and families. Furthermore, the plot doesn't end there. In the far north. a legendary military order, the Night's Watch is dedicated to defending the kingdoms from threats north of the Wall, a sctructure 700ft high. Watch it and you will be rewarded.
10/10, and Winter is Coming.
This is a really great show overall tbh. Season 6 managed to get me to really like Jon and Cersei (my former most hated character) in just 2 episodes. Some people say GoT is character driven but i really have to disagree. GoT has somewhat weak characters and is interesting because of the events that happen in the story, not because of the characters who cause them. Some of D&D's decisions have the opposite effect on viewers that they're supposed to have (like trying to make people think Jon is charging forward towards Ramsay out of blind rage when we know that he sees arrows being shot at him and therefore come to the conclusion that he's trying to avoid them, trying to make the viewers fear Jon for justifiably beating the everloving shit out of his half-sister's rapist and half-brother's murderer, etc. I'm told OITNB makes similar decisions.) and the Tumblr fem fanservice (women being accepted into positions of power without any backlash in an extremely misogynistic society, le jaden smith squint I wil rool..." dragon mom herself, etc.) can be cringey but it still has good enough writing and action to appeal to its male viewers. I'd give it an 8 because of some of the decisions made in seasons 5 and 6 but I'm bumping it up to a 9 because of bastardbowl and some scenes in earlier seasons that I really enjoyed.
I just don't know why I haven't got one favourite tv show... but when I think in depth about it, GoT seems to be the right one... don't know yet tho
Best show of all times
woah... if you say so.... i find it boring !
I don't have any streams on shiftv #ShiftvW8
One of my favorite shows!
The best tv serie I have ever watched!
it is true that next season will be the last?
just starting on game of thrones and no season 1 ;( #ShiftvW8
Keeps definitely keeps me interested. It's getting better every season. But to me - it's not genuine fantasy - it lacks heart. I know this is may sound controversial. But many seasoned fantasy-fans agree.
I want more dragons!! Lol. Love this show so much...
Love this show hopefully they'll've many more to come, this carte be the last season...
The best TV show I've ever seen!
