Alan Taylor's Game of Thrones is great television. No doubt about that but I don't think we can say the sets were of grandiose proportions. The battles themselves lacked some size. However, there's no telling how much control he had when arriving to the budget and cinematography. At times, the show's format felt condensed.
Now, this means nothing. Alan will have a larger budget and be paired with another set designer, so who knows what Taylor will bring to the table until a trailer hits the web.
