Some people hate it, some people can't get into it, and some people are fucking obsessed. I'm part of the latter group of people. I was hooked on the show from the very first episode. I have forced many people to start the show and some appreciate it as much as I do, others, not so much.
Sure the plot is convoluted, there's an obscene amount of storylines to follow, and it's medieval, but it is so much more than that. Game of Thrones or "Thrones," as a true fan would call it, is the greatest show on earth? Why? I will tell you. Every single episode absolutely blows my mind. They leave me breathless thinking questions like, "How did they do that?," "Why did they do that?," and "Holy fucking shit what the fuck just happened?" My face looks exactly like the gif at the top of this post after each ep and if you're a fan and you remember that moment, just smile. For the non-fans--people with lives devoid of meaning--that was just another one of Thrones' 'OMFG' moments.
Thrones has EVERYTHING you could ever possibly ask of a television show; It's completely unpredictable, it has extremely gruesome violence, very graphic sex scenes, zombies (white walkers), BAD ASS WOMEN, Kit Harrington's abs, DRAGONS, magic, weird religions, dwarfs, giants, politics, Shapeshifters? (Jaqen H'ghar), prophecies, and full-out wars. What else would you ever need?
Unfortunately, HBO has announced that there will only be two seasons left, so hop on the bandwagon before it's too late!! This is my first Thrones' post of many, many more to come! Stay tuned!
Catch the magic on Season 7, June 2017!!!
