Review: 'Game of Thrones' episode 1, 'Winterfell,' heavy on exposition (Spoilers)

In the first episode of season one of HBO’s smash-hit “Game of Thrones,” “Winter is Coming,” viewers witness Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) clambering around in a helmet and outfit several sizes too big for her. She wants to get a good view of the then-king, Robert Baratheon, who enters the threshold of Winterfell with a full parade of his court. The pomp and circumstance is captured with an upbeat and grandiose score by Ramin Djawadi as Arya anticipates seeing her heroes.
