    He's a false king and will fall when Dany comes-oh wait I forgot he already did fall to Brienne

    I hated season 5 mainly because most of the stuff in the books weren't included- like so many good characters! Gone, non-existence, shattered into a million shards :/. I just thought it wasn't that interesting really except like the last episode and Cersei scene walk was a disgrace. Although I did like the scene with her and Margaery.

    It's amazing. I've watched all the seasons through probably 3-4 times now and it never gets old. I am now also reading the books and they are even more amazing. I resisted it for so long but I'm so glad I caved in and watched it. It's definitely not overrated.

    There's just soo much to it. Every storyline is interesting and so clever. I really admire GRRM.

    And contrary to what most people are saying on here, I really enjoyed season 5. It was a bit slow to begin with, sure, but towards the end of the season it was superb. 'Hardhome' was fantastic!

    Season 1 is good, Seasons 2-4 are awesome, Season 5 is in parts good, awesome and bad. 2-4 beat Breaking Bad for me; better characters, more variation, better dialogue, more interesting world (though that endorsement only holds any weight if you are part of the majority who think that show is great). There is not much that can be criticised of its first four seasons imo. Its greatest strength is in characters (and of course the brilliant acting required to realise them well); in a top-notch show, characters should feel like real people, driving the plot by their own volition, rather than the plot dictating the characters' actions. Maybe the distinction is a little nebulous, but I think it's what makes the show feel so "alive" and engaging in contrast to so many others.

    I'm thinking of watching it too. Would I need to read some background wiki info on things like each House etc or is it easy to get into without prior knowledge?
    You can get into it easily without all the background stuff

    The performances in it by some of the leading cast of amazing. Charles Dance, our Sheffield's Sean Bean, and Peter Dinkage carry it for me.
    There are many other great relatively modern shows to watch though which can recommend: The Wire, The Shield, Breaking Bad, Black Mirror, House MD.

    yes, i was one of those who dont really like to get excited about things that's popular because it's way too hype for me to handle, but i gave it a chance in the summer and went through 5 seasons (50 hours altogether) in 1 week...though i did skip some part, some were political talk and quite uninteresting, other scenes were of characters i have no interest in. but overall it's good, i mainly watched it for daenerys and her dragons but theres not enough scenes of her :/

    Without a doubt one of the best TV series ever made. Surpassed only by Peep Show.
