It is a mistake to background-watch this show. I think that was part of my issue the first time around. They are also throwing a lot of unfamiliar names and places at you, that it distracts from the context of who and when these people are. I would be shocked if viewers that are unfamiliar to the games or books would fully pick up everything that the show is putting out there on the first watch.

Like Xena or Hercules but with better production values.
