    GoT is worth the watch!

    I was a late convert to the GoT series, but once I started watching I was hooked. The acting is strong; the visual effects, sets, and costumes are film-worthy; and the majority of the plots are engaging. I’m ready to start at the beginning and binge the whole series all over again... maybe I’ll get lucky and the last season will be available to purchase just in time to finish my binge session.

    Game of Thrones - Season Three

    Game of Thrones is a well-acted show with great sets, great costumes, great visual effects and interesting storylines with unexpected plot twists. Based upon George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of books, it is, without a doubt, for mature audiences. I haven't read the books so I cannot say how strictly the show adheres to the book. I have heard, however, that it is a near-faithful adaptation. Despite all of the accolades that the show has received, there are some issues which may make viewers who have never seen the show think twice before purchasing this season three set. First, there is a lot of graphic violence. While the setting of the show, a mythical land of kings and knights, dragons and dark forces, would seem to indicate that a certain level of violence is to be expected, some of it may be too intense for certain audiences. Second, there is an abundance of graphic interpersonal situations and full frontal nudity, both male and female, though more female. Third, there is a lot of vulgar language. For me, this is the biggest problem with the show. It's not that I have a problem with occasional foul language, it's that the words seem too modern for the era in which the show is seemingly set. Every time one is used, it pulls me out of that fantasy world. It breaks my "willing suspension of disbelief". Perhaps it's just me, but if they had created words, like Battlestar Galactica's FRAK or Farscape's FRELL, then I might not get that jarring feeling. Who knows. Finally, my biggest gripe is not with the show itself, but rather with the box set of the season. The season consists of 10 episodes and there are 5 discs in the set. There are only TWO episodes per disc which means that you have to get up and change the disc EVERY TWO EPISODES. This is NOT conducive to binge watching. Sure, there are extras on each disc. There are character profiles and behind the scenes documentaries. Still, this could have easily been a three disc set (5 episodes on disc one, 5 episodes on disc two and all extras on disc three) but I feel that the 5 disc format is used so that studios could charge more money for the box set. With that in mind, I advise waiting until it goes on sale for less than $10. All in all, I'd say that if you enjoy the fantasy genre and don't mind some adult situations, then Game of Thrones - Season Three might just be worth checking out.

    I haven't watched this yet - I'm waiting to finish the second season. Yes, I'm a little behind. If it is as good as what I've seen so far, I'm looking forward to watching it, and it should be very good.

    Thrones is the best show on tv but this season is probably the second worst. Still a great binge watch though.

    Game of Thrones is a classic series with something for everyone. Unexpected twists abound as the whole throne gang maneuvers for power and wealth. Great entertainment available to enjoy on your own schedule. These are nicely packaged and will last for many years to come. If you like action you will love this series. There is never a dull moment and plenty of fashion ideas to boot. Get it. Watch it. Live it. You won't be disappointed.

    GoT took a little time to get rolling with so many characters and backgrounds to cover. Season 2 and 3 though really have things moving along. Great storyline, characters and effects. All in all I'm a late comer to Thrones, but am getting seriously hooked now.

    There are many changes in season 3, but this series continues to provide exciting medieval tales of love and war among the powerful families in the George RR Martin world. That is what is great about these tales...there is so much detail and numerous characters that it feels like you are discovering new favorites with each plot twist. If you have been enjoying Game of Thrones first two seasons, then season 3 is a no brainer. You need to follow the tales to find out the gory details.

    This is a great series of characters you'll love and some you wish we're never born. It brings to life the kind of possible stories that could have happened in medieval times when people played that oh so dangerous game of thrones to rule a territory or even kingdoms. The only negative thing about the series is it could have got its point across without too much nudity and sexuality. The special effects are great and also the cinematography gives it that ancient feel.

    Amazing production value, story, & acting!

    I got hooked on season 1, and am excited to catch up with season 3! Great story, and excellent acting keep your attention for every second of every episode. The production value is insanely good. My only criticism, and I may be old fashioned, but the gratuitous "intimate" scenes overshadow some great acting/story in many scenes. I know it creates hype, and it's almost expected now in shows like this, but I think it's unnecessary, and a cheap tool to create buzz.
