I haven’t written much about Game of Thrones and all of its glory, because really no amount of words can sum up how amazing this show is, and how it has been a game changer for all cable network television shows. We all know HBO is a network with some big hitter’s, (Boardwalk Empire, Sex and the City, Entourage)…but Game of Thrones has definitely set the bar for all upcoming shows and shows that are on air, seriously I don’t think anything could top Whitewalkers and Dragons, I mean really.
For me, my Game of Thrones obsession started with everyone in my circle of friends and family telling me how amazing this show was, and that I needed to see it (especially being a film student). Granted, I hate that whole era of medieval times, and anything with shields and swords, but I fell in love with GOT from the first episode. I watched the first season in probably under a month, and recently caught up with Season 2 in under two weeks! Yes, clearly I’m obsessed.
Anyways, the show is so impressive, their sets are so magnificent and extraordinary, you sort of lose your sense of reality through the episode, feeling like you’re actually there, experiencing Jeffrey breaking up with Sansa, or you’re totally s******* your pants sitting with the fat guy watching the white walkers walk right by you!
I don’t want to write any of the spoilers, and really this show is so intricate, if you haven’t watched it from Episode 1 of Season 1, you’re likely to never grasp the true meaning of anything. Trust me, everyone needs to see this, or everyone that has an obsession with film and television, it’s just groundbreaking, and it definitely will go down in our history books as one of the best shows ever made. (Right alongside Vampire Diaries, of course)
It really sucks Season 2 is over, it was just getting interesting, the beginning of this season started off a little slow, but towards the end it picked up, it’s a shame there are only 10 episodes- we’ll have to wait another year for Season 3!
