Someone said :
Peter Dinklage is fantastic
I've only watched 4 eps but Peter Dinklage as the dwarf brother is excellent. So is Maisie Williams who plays the spirited wee girl Arya Stark.
Aiden Gillen is good as ever.
But Jack Gleeson who plays the weedy dickhead boy Joffrey - I think his performance is terrible. Or maybe he's badly directed. But his one-dimensional acting would suit a bit-part in a Harry Potter flick or otherwise on children's telly, not grown-ups'.
And another thing: the whole parallel plot about the chick with the blonde pigtails who marries a klingon: yawn! It's like she's Xena or something. That whole storyline is too like children's telly, sexy bits apart.
Overall, it's not a very subtle drama. For example, at the start of Ep 4 there was a dream sequence with Bran walking around. Anyone could tell it was a dream sequence. Then they cut to Bran's bed and his eyes opening. Then his nanny goes, "Oh, the boy has been dreaming".
So they really, really spell things out at times.
That said, I'm enjoying it.
