Is Game of Thrones worth watching?

Game of Thrones

Unlike some other new series these days, Game of Thrones released each episode once a week. That meant that every week, fans would eagerly check in to the series, live-tweet their reactions as events transpired in real time, and then be faced with the exhilarating but terrifying prospect of having to wait another week for the next episode to air.

Some folks who haven’t yet joined the Game of Thrones fandom may be experiencing FOMO. It’s been a topic of conversation among your friends, family, and neighbours. Is it, however, truly that good? You may have even heard that HBO is developing a spinoff series called House of the Dragon based on the series.

Game of Thrones is without a doubt a must-see for everyone who considers themselves a television enthusiast. Yes, it’s a fantasy programme with dragons, kings, queens, knights, and other such characters. However, as you get into the heart of the series, you’ll discover that it’s actually a drama narrative disguised as a comedy. And don’t we all like a good drama?

The story’s central assumption is that everyone in Westeros (and even the faraway nation of Essos) is power-hungry. And the monarch of the realm is the person with the most authority in the kingdom, who sits on the Iron Throne. With squabbling groups and scheming people all around, it’s no surprise that everyone is plotting to steal the throne. 

Not just anyone, however the characters span a wide spectrum of age groups. There are strong female characters including as Sansa Stark, Arya Stark, Cersei Lannister, and Daenerys Targaryen, who are all-powerful in their own way. Joffrey Baratheon, for example, is one of your favourite characters to despise. And then there are people like Jaime Lannister and Lord Varys, who you don’t sure how to feel about.

Every character and incident keeps you on the edge of your seat. And, while the last season gets a terrible name, it surely doesn’t overshadow the preceding seven seasons’ spectacular events. Oh, and no, you don’t need to read the novels to follow up with the series!
