In its review, Entertainment Weekly says its distinction in setting and tone makes the show "rise immediately far above such history-based costume dramas as 'The Borgias', 'Camelot', or 'Spartacus: Gods of the Arena'." The site also praises the way the series sticks to the text of the book by George R. R. Martin on which is based.

"The Kingsroad", the second episode of the drama fantasy series, will air Sunday, April 24 on HBO.
