Audience Reviews for Game of Thrones: Season 1

  • Sep 04, 2021
    has great moments and is extremely addictive but there are plots and events that resolve out of nowhere, still good enough to want more
  • Sep 03, 2021
    Incredible show, at least till it follows the books. After it surpasses the books, problems start. Last season is best not mentioned.
  • Aug 03, 2021
    Sex, violence, incest, intrigue, world building, all top notch. I will be honest, it too 2 tries to get into the series and it was worth it, by episode 3, fully invested. They handled introducing 6 million characters quite well and made the good guys likeable but not mary sue's , bad guys were fleshed out people with motivations that are pretty reasonable even if the methods are really awful. Very engaging made you look forward to the next season.

    THIS IS THE TRUE G. O. T. .
  • Jul 30, 2021
    This show was so good, sad to see how it ended (lazy writing etc.)
  • Jun 18, 2021
    Absolutely Breathtaking. Non predictable narrative. Actors portrayal of character is amazing. Not even one person over acts
  • Jun 12, 2021
    It feels like a show finding it's stride. The world is captivating but I never found the main plot line of this season to be very engaging nor exceptionally well presented. There is plenty of other things to enjoy here, though.
  • May 10, 2021
    It's a good season but was not very interesting to me. The show picks up for me next season, and the later episodes in the season are vastly superior. However, it sets up the entire story but feels like one long prologue.
  • May 07, 2021
    Season 1 to this iconic show starts off a little slow and can be uninteresting if you go in expecting Whitewalkers and Dragons right away, which as you continue to watch the show you'll realize that those aren't the main attraction to this show but rather the politics and characters. This is a great start to an amazing show!
  • May 04, 2021
    What to say except that it's just a great show. Not five stars because we're still getting introduced to many characters.
