Critic Reviews of "Game Of Thrones - Season 1"
Media LifeFebruary 07, 2014
The main accomplishment of Game of Thrones is that, while it should keep the hard-core fans satisfied, even viewers who don't care whether Theon is a Greyjoy or a Tully can play along and have a good time.

There is the sense of intricacy having been confused with intrigue and of a story transferred all too faithfully from its source and thus not transformed to meet the demands of the screen.

Game of Thrones, one of the supposed biggies this spring, is a big letdown. Why is it so convoluted and punishing? It is to television what the Spider-Man musical is to Broadway.

But the story at hand regularly slows to a crawl, making HBO's at times pokey but otherwise magnificent five-hour Mildred Pierce re-do seem like a 100-meter sprint in comparison.

Fans of the acclaimed Game of Thrones books, or even fans of fantasy realms in general, will find much to admire and enjoy here.

I mostly loved Game of Thrones, but occasionally grew a little weary of it as well. (And just to answer the obvious question, this is not a small-screen Lord of the Rings.)

There are several things to recommend HBO's rendition of the story, most notably the cast and many of the visuals.

It's the stuff of fantasy geek heaven; a gritty period drama with letter-perfect clothes, weapons and lingo, yet unencumbered by historical facts or the weight of real events.
TV EqualsFebruary 07, 2014
The series was created with such care, it has so many intricate elements that brings this world alive. It's like peeking into a microcosm!

There's great potential here, and even if it fails to draw more than the fantasy contingent, Martin has sold more than 15 million copies of the books, and it's a rabid fanbase.
