  •  I felt the same way initially. (7+ / 0-)

    Then I binge watched seasons one and two in about three episode chunks and I was hooked. Game of Thrones is awesome. "Why did I wait till the end of season two to watch this?" The wait for season three was rough...lol.

    Political intrigue, familial conflict, world changing events, actual subplots that pay off in unexpected ways (that make other broadcast TV shows seem like small potatoes), excellent acting, great characters, etc. No perfect heroes, no perfect villains.

    It's a show that has a little bit of everything.

    And it's a story with no singular protagonist whose eyes we're forced to see the world through. You want to see the world through Varys' eyes? Or Arya? Or Cersei? Or (shudder) Jeoffry? You can have it your way. Any character can be a protagonist or antagonist.

    Also, the production values. It's like watching a movie in my living room. The details into the costumes, the sets, the ersatz languages, the cinematography...it's all quite beautiful. It's ambitious and fantastic.

    This is my favorite show on television, and I'm extremely picky about what I watch.

    The Grand Bargain must be stopped at all costs to protect the 99%.
