It is pretty and I really enjoyed it.
The aesthetics and production are definitely spectacular in my opinion, and I simply just love how it looks overall. Now you must know that I have NOT read the book or any of the A Song of Fire and Ice novels. The reason why I gave it a viewing was frankly because of the hype surrounding it by various sites (*ahem*ToplessRobot*ahem*). Not to mention that some of my good friends (the Fivers) are fans and have been telling me how amazing the series is. Plus, of course, the board game which I used to play with them back in the day.
