I watched the first episode, having heard people compare it to Lord of the Rings and what not, so I may have been expecting something different. It wasn't what I expected, at least. I found it dull. The whole setting, the atmosphere and the characters but a few struck me plainly as dull. I loved the intro with the 'walkers' and all, that was rather thrilling.
Few issues. In this first episode, I saw eight or nine sets of tits, three sex scenes, some pubes, a Dwarf getting rubbed, there was lots of loud moaning every other scene, and it all just felt very... randy. Don't get me wrong, I'm a heterosexual guy in my best age and I love tits, but it was a bit much when expecting Hobbits and wizards.
Oh, and then there's the dialogue. I don't know if this is set in the olden days, or in more of a parallel universe, which would allow for a bit more free interpretation, but it seems very basic, and they tend to speak what sounds like a modern tongue, full of "won'ts", "don'ts" as opposed to "will nots", "do nots". They flung "f*cks" around like there was no tomorrow, as well. Just seems off.
Maybe I'm just being silly.
