Peter Dinklage is amazing

hi Petersgirl on Jun 03, 2014 @ 09:29 am

it is on HBO but now you can get the first seasons on dvd or online somewhere
it is mythical but has a lot of violence and gratuitous sex
it is based on a series of books and the author's name is George R.R. Martin
but some of the characters are wonderful and that is how I got hooked

Dinklage truly is amazing. He carries the show - well maybe not, but he really is very good and gives it some much-needed liveliness. I have to say, though, that I'm finding it a bit dreary and uninteresting this last season... We'll see. I think fantasy series in general are very hard to do "right" - the director has to really find a good balance between letting their imagination go and keeping it "on-message". The two don't have to be mutually exclusive to each other, but it is often the case that a series is either one or the other...

Peter Dinklage is a great actor. His character is so well developed. Kit Harrington is pretty gorgeous, haha.. I love this show ad it's various story lines.

this past season seemed way too short - it just started then it was over! very anti-climatic! They build the show up and the anticipation is crazy .. then ... nothing! it's like a bad date! ;-)

Glad this past season made a bit more sense than season 3 - that was just plain weird. Cant wait for the next one to come out ... sometime next year *sigh*

it is just too gloomy and dark

I did a binge run of GOT and caught up on all the eps in April. Absolutely love the casting and storyline. This season was definitely too short and I can't believe we have to wait so long for a new season!

At first, I rolled my eyes at the show. Then I watched it and it is a really an engaging story. Yes, there are too many characters and places to remember. But... there's lot of sex and violence and great character and plot development going on. Once you get over the first episode, you may or may want to watch but you kind of do. And then it sticks. Check it out or not. You've been warned...
