You know I thought that the dude who plays Stannis was really great in the show Adams when he played Thomas Jefferson. That was a show I really liked, so I was actually stoked when I heard he was playing Stannis. I thought he did a decent job in the first episode.
Dude- Crasters house was DEAD ON! Loved it. And Dolorus Ed popped up for a line or two. Great start so far, but wow... this story is so huge. Following all these characters and stories at once is going to be insane.
My only down point was the Dany scenes. I wasn't digging the acting from any of them.
