What I liked

The original songs were top notch quality. Impressively arranged. The caricatures were all en point. Great use of tiny plus direwolfs. All I wanted was bad wigs and tiny dragon puppets and I GOT IT. Jokes, comedic songs, and even the ol’ sight gag or two. [Lookin at Rob Starks apron.] All the performers were great with a few stand outs from stephanie sandelin, tony cellucci, and amanda newman.

What I didn't like

The universe and story are so big, of course there will be elements we want to see that can’t make it into the show. I was wondering why we kept going back to Bran’s bedroom again and again but didnt see a staging of Kahl Drogo’s funeral pyre and the birth of the dragons. But in the short hour we covered a whole season, so I’m not mad!

My overall impression

It had a great balance of not taking itself seriously at all, playing up the parody and campiness, but still pulling out the show stopping talents from the performers, composers, and directors.
