_
"the series is now getting confusing with all the characters and families."

Fantasy

Fantasy:
"I was prepared to dislike this because I am not into fantasy, probably why I never read the books."
_
"Hate the violence but we just know that despite being fantasy, it is a close depiction of medieval times society without the rule of law."
_
"It's got magic in it, too, which oddly enough isn't overpowering for those who enjoy historical fiction and aren't all that into fantasy."
_
"I usually do not enjoy fantasy adventure; however, this is an exception as I have enjoyed both the series and the books."
_
"Not your average pretty Fantasy story."
_
"Entertains, sometimes confusing, but excellent fantasy series."
_
"I watched every episode with my finger on the fast forward control -which is a shame because cut out or make some of the graphic stuff suggestive instead (you know it happened without seeing all the shocking details) and you'd easily have one of the best fantasy epics I'd ever seen."
_
"The second season of this astonishing epic fantasy sees the ever deepening rifts between the former kingdoms boil over into outright civil war; betrayal, duplicity and back-stabbing (both political and actual) are the order of the day."
_
"It strays off the theme quickly but I love the time period, the characters, the myths, fantasy and adventure of the series."
_
"It's just a great fantasy soap"
_
"If you're a fan of Lord of the Rings type stuff, fantasy, Gladiator, or any of those kinds of epics, you'll love this show."

Feature

Feature:
"The special features should not leave anyone disappointed."
_
"I love being able to pull up episodes on my phone or computer without needing the disk - the only complaint I have about that feature is that I usually have to limit myself to one episode on my phone at a time, but that is only because I have too much other stuff on my phone - including movies - and videos do take up a good bit of space."
_
"The iTunes digital copy was in HD which was an awesome surprise(generally that stuff ends up being in SD special features were great2 minor complaints kept this from being 5 starDVD copy was on double sided discs."

Play

Play:
"I purchase this on Prime and when I went to play it I was disappointed to find it was only the making of each episode, not the actual episode."
_
"It would not play in my CD player because apparently I am playing it in the wrong region."
_
"It seem like a waste (of materials and space) to me, and switching dvds so frequently got a little annoying since we play it straight through."
_
"I tried looking for defects or issues that would make it unable to play and I can't find anything."
_
"Only problem was I could not play it on a regular DVD player although it stated Blue Ray DVD Combo."
_
"But what makes the game of thrones so distinctive from other boring and repetitive and predictable power play television shows, is none of the characters are stupid, they each posses their own individual intellects and even pitfalls."
_
"It plays great online and is a great show well worth the purchase."
_
"Characters that die immediately are given long stories spanning multiple seasons (because the actor was so good - if the actor is so good, why couldn't they play the character as written?"
_
"It's GREAT to be able to watch the series play like a movie."
_
"The boy, who plays him is a great young actor & I'm sure he will act for years to come."

Quality:

_
"Does not work well everytime, but in the past the quality of streaming."

"Not only will you be satisfied with the quality of the blue ray and DvD's.... but if your a fan of great stories that pushes its R rating to its limit there is nothing more to talk about."
_
"Defects are not repeatable between the sets so it's not the file they use to make the disc, it's pure and simple quality problem."
_

Scene:

_
"I'd rather see love than violence any day, but there are a few scenes that combine both into one, and that is not as good as it might seem."

"The scenes are offensive, lasting in duration, and unacceptable for viewing."
_
"Beware, though, that some scenes are hauntingly disturbing but still reveal and portray the reality of the situation and the true essence of the characters."
_
"I would have given this 5 stars because of the great main story lines as well as the superb acting, scenery and staging, and costumes, but the explicit showing of the sex scenes makes this something that I would not feel comfortable watching with my family."

_
"could do without the porn scenes but the story is so good"

_
"Not as good as Spartacus but not as graphic for both sex and violence."
_
"My only complaint is that it would have a wider audience if they would tone down the sex and violence."
_
"Also espite this being set in an age where women are expected to stay celibate until marriage (except for the prostitutes), all the unmarried women who are not prostitutes too often show to have no problem having pre-marital sex and quickly succumb when asked."
_
"This passes the time, but the unimaginative use of cruelty in place of drama and the gratuitous and misogynistic sex really make this hard to take."
_
"Good story but WAY TOO MUCH nudity & sex."

"Fantastic story, too much graphic sex, violence and language to make me comfortable."
