Game of Thrones Makes its HBO Debut

Over the past couple of years the Internet has consumed much of my spare time and as a result I don’t consider myself to be much of a TV watcher these days.  However I must admit that when I discovered my favorite book series of all time, A Song of Ice and Fire by George RR Martin, was being made for TV it immediately grabbed my attention.

Over the past month my anticipation has continued to grow until last night when the first episode finally made its debut on HBO.  Here is a trailer:

I have to say I was impressed.  The quality was very good and HBO has devoted a scary amount of money to making everything look authentic.  For those of you that saw it what were your thoughts?
