I will start by saying I like the TV show (first 7 seasons) and the books. It has action, war scenes, high production values, good acting and awesome CGI dragons. It is a medieval fantasy brought to life. The people who like Sopranos / Walking Dead but do not like Game of Thrones for the "sex and violence", I suspect are also not fans of the fantasy genre. Fantasy is a love it or hate it genre, if you were not a fan of the fantasy genre before, this show will not change your mind.
Do not go in expecting something like Lord of the Rings, this is not that kind of fantasy. George RR Martin researched and picked out what he considered to be the most interesting parts of medieval history and built a fantasy world around it. This is a world with interesting characters with story arcs and some new ideas I have not seen in other fantasy novels / TV shows. If you enjoy fantasy shows and willing to give atleast the first half of the first season a chance, then please check out GoT.

Highly recommend watching "GAME OF THRONES 1X01 BREAKDOWN" on New Rockstars YouTube channel. The season 8 breakdowns are pretty amazing too, as it ties up the entire series.

I did not see Game of Thrones on TV. I was curious about all the hoopla on the show. I got the Season One DVD. After watching about 20 minutes, I was sure this show was not for me. I hated it. I returned it and the Season Two discs. I took the Season Two discs directly from the pick-up shelf and put it and Season One directly into the Return area. Why did I hate it? The violence, the physicality, horrible.

Though I have (just within the last few weeks) become yet another huge fan of Game of Thrones, I had never tried watching it before nor, had I ever heard any actual specifics to the saga. But, decided to finally give it a try and right off the bat I was quite stunned and shocked!! I had no idea of the amount of soft (more like semi hard) porn, nudity and, blood and guts these shows had! Since no one had ever mentioned this to me (heck, just check out all the comments about it below mine....most all of them don't even mention this yet, there is a "whole lot of it" (and that's putting it lightly!) So, just be forewarned that you will see "many" full on female nudity (occasional male frontal however, the are always flacid), along with, up close and personal people nude and constantly "*ucking" ( that first season really had far too many intercourse scenes for me. It actually got to me a bit!) plus, constant blood, guts and gore since almost every scene had at least one person chopping off someone's head or, disemboweling them etc. And, this show lets the blood fly!!
I still have to say just how unique this show is and, how much it drew me in! Once I started watching it, I couldn't wait to get back to it and have been binge watching it like crazy (finishing the 1st through the 5th seasons within this last week and a half)! However, that first season, I probably had my head turned from the screen more than I watched it, due to so much intercourse and blood and gore. But, I still continued to listen and was drawn in never the less. Just wanted to give anyone who happens to read this, a heads up about the shows crude and, very adult content! (I'd extremely advise watching it before you let your children (even in their teens) watch it. The sex is right up close and personal!!)

No longer wondering why Game of Thrones is a runaway hit, I'm smitten too--there's something for everyone and I love it all!

A fantasy epic the likes of which have never been attempted on the small screen. Perhaps the greatest selling point of Game of Thrones is it's daring nature and therefore unpredictability. In my opinion it is simply the greatest show of its kind on television. Nothing else can hold a candle to it. A horde of unforgettable characters, all brilliantly acted.

Game of Thrones, unlike many other shows in the genre, quite clearly had a plan from the start (even with source material that remains unfinished). Where other shows lose focus and change in sweeping ways over the seasons, Game of Thrones remains committed to telling one overarching story.

I absolutely did not want to watch GoT. After people begging me for years to watch, I finally caved. I now understand all of the hype! I was sucked in from the first episode. I then had to talk other reluctant family members into watching and they too got sucked in. Yes, it's that good!

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.

Game of Thrones will be remembered as one of the greatest television series of all time.

Other: Only 1 disc out of 5 worked for me. This copy had the Shoreline sticker on it. I plan to notify my library when I return it. Please check your sets for lots of scratches otherwise you may find they don't work like I did.

Sexual Content: Very graphic scenes of sex, and rape. Sex scenes occur every episode. Some very very explicit particularly one halfway through the show. A oral sex scene with to males. Total: 10/10

Violence: Very violent with often extreme details of gore, guts and blood. Throats slit, people stabbed, brutalized and killed horribly. Main characters die left, right and center--and often horribly. Not for the faint of heart. Total: 10/10

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.
