Poor mans GOT
21 February 2016 | by Ang WeisbergSee all my reviews

Despite some fine acting it's abysmal. No effort has been made to put some intelligent screen writing and cgi' behind the concept.

Whilst I enjoy the scenery and some very fine horses it defeats me that ITV has got away with it. It has some fine creatures but they are just a bit too familiar and some seem to have been created in a hurry to a deadline.

Several episodes into it I'm still waiting for something..........on the plus side it's quite entertaining to watch it on fast forward on catch up .. Lol 😂😂😂

There are several very fine Fantasy Dramas to be watched but sadly this isn't one of them. It would've had enormous potential if the writers and producers might've taken the opportunity to delve into the treasure hoard of Norse or even German Sagas and poems but sadly this has not been done.

Watching it as I type I must admit there is some very fine eye candy strutting their stuff..... but even this is not enough to save a tired and overused plot line.

May I also,suggest that the writer of the theme tune should be more creative and listen less to Mr. Martins little diddy.
