Amazing series!! I haven't read the book, but I intend to do so after watching this. Such an incredible story, really interesting characters, great acting and beautiful scenery and costumes. Everything is so well put, I think it is one of the best series out there, I would recommend it to anyone! I hope there will be a 2nd season!! 10/10

Does it get any better than this? No way. One of the (infantessimally) few TV shows that can drag me away from my beloved books.

lol you mean alfread who i consider the whiney baby of this show if you didnt like him very much you'll very much be glad as to what happens to him in the ending.

This is a great show ,fast moving and smart. All good things love,hate,good evil, God and Kings, lust and envy.

Liked this one much better than World Without End. World with out end is too dark and not as wide spread story line than this one. Never felt they were dragging it along in this series. Just Perfect. Good job starz

Full of the seven deadly sins. Have not read the book which is very good I hear. I'm enjoying the series and recommending it to others.

Posted by gemboy

good but not like the book... you have to read the book it is far far far far far far and far better

Posted by bigmike50

4 it being the 1st show, there's alot of things already going on.

Posted by YgraineDance

@metrasurfing: I agree with you on all points. Saw both but loved this one much more (partly, I am sure, due to the presence of the stunning Eddie Redmayne as Jack, but also due to the more compelling story.) Now I gotta go read the book, which most seem to agree is quite riveting!

Posted by bigmike50

wow, what a ending. great show. there's a few people in here that i wish dead.

Posted by KalleVL

Exellence is a word that springs to mind after watching this show. Great scenery, intriguing characters, exellent camera work and a captivating story. A true "must see" if there ever was one. 5/5 well earned stars!

Posted by Pentelpen12

It was a mini series like Band of Brothers. It wasn't meant to go on.

Posted by Maximus_1

you should read the book, I did 5 years ago and I spent all my time at home untill I completed. This the best story!!!

Posted by Sodapop_Curtis

The episodes are getting worse and worse, the story more and more incoherent and the characters more and more inconsistent. I am very disappointed.

Posted by bigmike50

great show, really keeps me interested.

Posted by bigmike50

pretty interesting. i hope that 1 woman isn't pregnant by that rapist. good show.

Posted by Maximus_1

Have you ever pressed the button of play-fast forward on a DVD player? Well that is how this TV show feels if you read the detailed rich flavor 70% more events in the book. You can also get the book on CD or tape and

Posted by warlord90zzz

i hope they never kill off haley atwell character .. shes one of those amazing actors.. not to mension her astonishing looks.

Posted by Sodapop_Curtis

Not bad and fairly entertaining, but I think it would be so much better if the frontier between the goodies and the baddies was not that obvious. A touch of subtlety in the political plots is missing here.
