Great show, if you haven't been spoiled it really hits hard! But the disks I got were really scratched up. I missed a lot because it wouldn't play properly.

This show is one of the few cases I have ever seen where the visual medium is better than the books. The show streamlines the rather meandering plots from the books, for the most in successful ways. The acting is superb in this show. They got fantastic actors like Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, and Sean Bean for the roles. The sets are amazing. The costuming is sublime. In his books, George R.R. Martin set out to bring the grittiness, bloody darkness from medieval Europe that the rest of epic fantasy tends to gloss over. The show brings it to life in gory technicolor, telling the story of political machinations amongst four houses: the Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, and Targaryens, plus all their hangers-on. At the start of the series, the Targaryens, who were the previous ruling house, are, as far as anyone knows, down to two: Viserys and Daenerys and living in exile. The Baratheons, led by King Robert, had won the throne through a rebellion about sixteen years prior. Ned Stark is one of King Robert's closest friends, who has to make some tough decisions. The Lannisters are one of the most powerful and wealthiest families in the seven kingdoms, and one of their members, Cersei, is Robert's wife, and the queen. The show is utterly fascinating, though not for everyone, as there as scenes of graphic violence, sex, nudity, and language.

These discs are damaged and will not play. Maybe someday the library will hold people accountable for destroying public property. There is no reason that a DVD should ever be rendered unplayable with a modest amount of care.

I did not like the Game of Thrones Season One. There was a lot of violence and unnecessary vulgar language. The nudity/sex scenes had little to no supporting story line. The show was irritatingly slow. I cannot recommend this show.

I literally held off watching this show as long as I possible could. I don't have cable & in case I started watching & became hooked, I wanted all the seasons available before I started. But now that I started, I can't stop. The time period they use during the show isn't exactly my favorite or one I would of used, but this has turned out to be one of my favorite shows! Can't wait for season 5 to come out on DVD!!!

I liked the story, settings, costumes, dialogue, characters, and twists! And I don't even mind some nudity and sex scenes if they progress the story but one scene in particular was down right pornographic and made me feel super uncomfortable, even though I was watching alone! Also the copy I got was badly scratched and skippy so that was a drag

If you enjoyed Lord of the Rings, or fantasy novels that deal with a medieval-ish setting, than start watching this series!

Cersei Lannister: You should have taken the realm for yourself. Jaime told me about the day King's Landing fell. He was sitting on the Iron Throne and you made him give it up. All you needed to do was climb those steps yourself. Such a sad mistake.

Eddard Stark: I've made many mistakes in my life, but that wasn't one of them.

Cersei Lannister: Oh but it was. When you play the game of thrones you win, or you die. There is no middle ground.
