A couple journalists who have been lucky enough to watch the first episode (and maybe more) of Game of Thrones have tweeted their reactions today.
First was Stuart Levine, TV and film journalist for Variety magazine. In response to a question asking whether he had seen the Thrones pilot he tweets, “Yes. Very good.”
Second, Kara Warner, of MTV News, tweets her enthusiastic reaction to watching Thrones:
For my GoT fanatics: I have seen @GameOfThrones and it is all that I wanted & more. I cried, cringed, shivered, cried again.
We can expect more reactions from critics to trickle out in the coming weeks as the premiere gets closer and probably even some full reviews once we get within spitting distance of April 17th.
Winter Is Coming: Nice to see some positive early buzz. I know Warner is a fan of the books, so her reaction is probably good news for many of the readers of our site. I’m not sure about Levine, but I don’t think he has read the books, so his positive reaction bodes well for newcomers and helps allay the fears that the complexity of the series may be a barrier to the uninitiated.
