This is what's wrong with the world.

I can't believe how many families are okay with this in their homes. Has our culture really become so morally bankrupt and insensitive? This is acceptable? It makes me sad and extremely concerned about what's next. How far will we fall?

Skip the show but Read the Books

The show has way too much sex and violence, all for the almighty dollar I suppose - but do read the series, it's an interesting tale, but best in book form.

Too much hype for such a demeaning show!

I kept hearing all of these rave reviews of this show but nobody talks about the sex including incest, rape and group sex. Has a very poor sexual depiction of women. I was disappointed after watching the pilot for 15 minutes! Don’t be fooled by all of the hype.

Evil prevails and all good people die.

I've tried to watch a few episodes of season one, but the good characters all die and the evil characters get all the attention. Cheap and loveless sex is the main theme and the most perverted relationships are promoted as normal. DON'T WATCH THIS UTTER GARBAGE!!!

Impossible to watch without feeling dirty

This show gets rave reviews by celebrities on tv and is frequently referenced in TV Shows. So I figured it was time to check it out for myself, and what I found was gratuitous cursing and gratuitous sex. I could not make it through the first episode. I don't actually believe there is any age which would be appropriate to follow this series, but that is just my 2 cents Apparently all filth is considered art and genius these days, and writers no longer know how to have a character express feelings without using every curse word known to man. Honestly for the Medeival time setting, isn't the heavy usage of modern terms and curse words kind of stupid? Not worth the time, please save your eyes and ears and don't even bother with this show

Not for Kids

Straight up Pornography. Up to you whether you want your kid seeing that. There is no difference between this and X rated stuff online. May have a good story, but waaay to much sex and rape.

Don't watch it, and warn your children.

Very graphic and unnecessary sexual scenes. Also, the main girl wanted to get out of her contract because she no longer agreed with how often they had her getting naked. They refused and she had to publicly complain before they allowed her to change her contract. Now she is comparing sexism in Hollywood to racism so I no longer feel bad for her... Anyway, they also groom their younger actresses so when they turn 18, they take their clothes off. Lots of rape and incest as well. This show is unethical, sexist, and George RR Martin should be ashamed that they turned his 14 year old book characters into HBO soft-porn. I also despise how many people try to explain away the unnecessary parts of the show as being "parts of real life", meanwhile, there are dragons and magic. Yes, the plot can go along with real-life politics, but you cannot label the show as realistic. Another thing I should add is that they only stopped beating down the women and started making them more powerful when their fan base complained of misogyny. Many people were going to boycott after a brutally graphic rape scene but I don't think they stopped watching.

Not for kids or adults

The level of sickening, graphic violence and sex should not be seen by anyone. The shows main actress has even come out against the nudity and sex she had to portray, but the show's creator value women like objects and hired another actress willing to get naked to be her double. This is basically a high budget softcore porn. As far as the story goes, the show's most honorable characters are often killed off when they do the right thing, while incestuous characters reign. The villains in the show are so sadistic they are unbelievable. I've read the books in their entirety and Martin never revels in the shock like the show does.

Aresenic in nice wrapping

I'm reading the reviews here and I can't help but wonder why people are saying this is only appropriate for kids over 17? It's not appropriate for anyone over 17. It's like saying Playboy is okay for the articles. How far our culture has fallen... how far we have fallen to even suggest that incest, nudity, and profanity are somehow just fine, as long as there is a good story to go with it.
