I was a few years late hopping on this bandwagon, but in all honesty, I’m glad I was. I can’t imagine what kind of emotional roller coaster I would have gone through having to wait for the new episode every week.
Game of Thrones isn’t your ordinary kind of drama. If you asked me to explain it to you, I wouldn’t even know where to begin. But here’s what I can think of right now:
Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos and has several plot lines. The first story arc follows a dynastic conflict among competing claimants for succession to the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. The show attracted record viewership on HBO, with a broad and active international fan base.
The show was recommended to me by multiple friends, and so I finally caved. I started, and I couldn’t stop. It even got in the way of my school work! It has everything from conflicting relationships to friendship v. family. Essentially, Game of Thrones is the ultimate bingeworthy show with substance. BUT YOU HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION. You can’t just watch it while doing something else. You actually have to sit down and look at the screen and pay attention to detail.
