The first season is done, and boy was I underwhelmed. The CGI was great to middling, the acting was ok to middling, and there were at least 3 massive time jumps, one of which involved replacing many of the main leads, a decision that had me scratching my head. It took me right out of the show and I still have no clue why they had several sets of actors playing the same characters.
If you really had a great time with the last couple seasons of Game of Thrones, you’ll likely really like this new show, but if you wanted a show that takes it time with the material, this ain’t it.
