Such good acting in this show, it's got so many of my favourite actors. The actor who plays: Sandor is great in The Book Group, Robb is great in Sirens, and Melisandre is phenomenal in Zwartboek. Charles Dance was in an adaptation of one of my favourite books, Going Postal, and he was so pitch perfect as Vetinari. Peter Dinklage is so funny in Death at a Funeral (2007). I never thought much of Lena Headey in the things I've seen her in (St. Trinian's, 300, The Brother's Grimm), but in Game of Thrones I think she's produced the most impressive acting from the cast. I know I would have different expectations and requirements if I had read the books, but as far as the acting is concerned, this show is a class above everything else.
