One Review for “Game of Thrones”

  1. Game of Thrones ended its first season this past Sunday. At the beginning of this HBO series, I was definitely confused because of the many characters and interweaving story lines. However, once I was readily able to identify all of the characters, I became mesmerized by the intricate plot detail and set design. This was truly HBO at its best.
    Imagine my surprise when the series ended last week on a group of unrelated cliffhangers. I was not happy to say the least. It is one thing if there is a major cliff hanger or something that carries over to the next season. It is a completely different thing when the entire first season is a set up for the second season with no resolution of anything at all.
    To begin with, I have no idea what the Khalesi has to do with any of the main story lines. I expected some tie-in so that our season long journey with her would have something to do with King Robert and/or the Stark Clan. As of the conclusion of the first season, there is no tie in whatsoever. In fact, when the season ended with the Khalesi in a rather strange and bizarre situation, it had absolutely nothing to do with anything relating to King’s Landing, Winterfell or the Wall. It was just something completely out of left field.
    To further my surprise, the prior episode ended with the beheading of the leading man, John Stark. Again, the final episode had absolutely no resolution of this. In fact, the war between the rival clans over the throne just seems to be taking off and getting worse. And, now we do not have a leading man to wonder about or root for; just his two elder sons and their quest for vengeance.
    John Stark’s two daughters are in an even more harrowing position than when he was killed at the end of the next to the last episode. One is beginning her journey back to Winterfell and the other is destined to marry the new King Geoffrey even though Geoffrey beheaded her father.
    Of course, none of this makes sense if you did not watch the series. However, my point is very simple. Stop wasting my time if you are not going to resolve something. To have the entire first season as a set up for the second season is ridiculous. Because of this, I give this show two stars. If the season ended properly, it would have been five stars.
    In closing, this series is not for the faint of heart or for the moral minded. The shows graphic depictions of violence and sex as well as the mature subject matter make it not family friendly.
