You're well placed to answer this sort of question: is a (more or less) middle aged man allowed to squee? For my part, given the challenges of adaptation, very happy with the first episode.
Also, isn't it interesting that for at least a hundred years or so most of the best polyphonic writers have been "genre" writers? Maybe writing about Very Important Subjects of the Day doesn't work so well past the 19th century, compared to writing Stories in which people feel invested. (And even then ...)

Even then in the 19th century, that is. Faulkner may be the exception to my "rule," but as a (willingly) displaced Southerner I'd say what he was doing was genre fiction of its own wierd kind that, based on what he did with dialogue, someone decided was Literature.
I think "Thrones" has, like Next Generation did for scifi in its day, craeted a new level of marriage between cinematic effects and television budgets for fantasy. Gorgeous to look on. And I'm waiting to see how they film Bran and Jon Snow's direwolves when they grow up....
