Review: Ultimately, though, even with the fantasy, GAME OF THRONES feels like a historical medieval saga. It's a royal, and royally good, round of musical chairs. (Boston Globe, 2012-01-30)<br><br>There's a real allure to costume-dramas that pair dense mythology with all of the crowd-pleasing elements of war, honor, pride, lust, power and, yes, even humor. Thrones has all of those in spades and supports them with exceptional storytelling, strong writing, superb acting and some stunning visual effects. (Hollywood Reporter, 2012-01-30)<br><br>Though some of the visual cues will be very familiar to fans of "LORD OF THE RINGS" or even "THE TUDORS," GAME OF THRONES” quickly finds that rare alchemy of action, motivation and explanation, proving, once again, that the epic mythology remains the Holy Grail of almost any medium. (Los Angeles Times, 2012-01-30)<br><br>This dwarf [Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage)] has game--and so does this fabulous dark fable. Dig in. (TV Guide, 2012-01-30)<br><br>
