Is it good? I've heard so much buzz about it, but I haven't really seen any reviews.

Also, what is it about??

^ It just started but from what I know its a power struggle between various families to seek the throne to rule. Some were exiled but want to return while others are thrown into the mix.

I am hooked after watching the first episode. I haven't read the books though I really want to now. The acting is great and the general atmosphere and essentially the different environments shown are spectacular.

The guy who plays Viserys does such an amazing job to bring out the cunning and ruthless attitude of the character, and you definitely feel for his sister with all that he is making her go through.

The entire cast is so unique and everyone contributes an element.

Plot summary (No spoilers, don't worry)

Quote:
Seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. Political and sexual intrigue abound. The primary families are the Stark, Lannister, and Baratheon families. Robert Baratheon, King of Westeros, asks his old friend Eddard Stark to serve as his chief advisor. Eddard, suspecting that his predecessor had been murdered, accepts so that he can investigate further. It turns out more than one family is plotting to take the throne. The Queen's family, the Lannisters, may be hatching a plot to take control. Across the sea, the last surviving members of the previously deposed ruling family, the Targaryens, are also plotting a return to power. The conflict between these families and others, including the Greyjoys, the Tullys, the Arryns, and the Tyrells, leads to war. Meanwhile, in the north, an ancient evil awakens. Amidst war and the political confusion, a brotherhood of misfits, The Night's Watch, is all that stands between the realms of men and the horrors beyond.

Based on the bestselling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin (Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author).

I got about 15 minutes into the first episode, but it scared the sh*t out of me.
I might finish it, but now I'm nervous. lol.

I've also heard that an animal gets killed in one episode, so I don't know if this show is for me.
