Game of Thrones (GoT) is a fantasy-drama-action series that has been one of the most popular shows in the U.S. for the past 6-years. You may have heard of it in passing or while you’ve been online fumbling around, so what’s all the commotion?
For starters - this show is very well written, actually. Not quite “Breaking Bad” worthy, but damn close.
The entire show is filled with a bunch of conniving swordsmen and women, some royalty, some mysterious guys, some thinkers, and some talkers. Ah, and what show wouldn’t be complete without some frozen zombies too? Basically, other than a couple of feuding families, of which several family members want the other family members dead, the show is about different factions vying for the “Iron Throne” – all of whom believe they are the rightful ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.
What makes the show so unique is the individual characters, plots, and storylines the producers have created. The task of running a series like this is extremely ambitious, and when you spice things up with a dash of adult humor, sexuality, and violence – well, you have a nice recipe for a cult following.
Personally, I don’t take the time to watch a series unless more than one person recommends it to me. Why? Because most of the shows on TV are complete crap as far as I’m concerned. I tried to watch GoT once 2-years ago and couldn’t get past the first couple episodes. I didn’t understand what was going on, and that’s because I didn’t have the patience to wait.
At the end of season 6, the show has now completed its 60th hour of television. If you find yourself with a bit of spare time, definitely give it a watch.
