Game of Thrones – everybody is talking about it and it is impossible that you still have not heard of it. This famous TV show which airs on HBO is all over the Internet. Fans have enjoyed the past three seasons a lot and are very eager for the fourth season. The TV series has been based on George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series, and is all about a fictional Middle-Age world of clashing kingdoms. The story is somewhat based on the War of Roses in England in the Middle Ages. Now, why is everybody going crazy over it on Internet TV? Here are the reasons.
Not your typical plot
What made Game of Thrones stand out is that it is not your typical war story. George R. R. Martin really excelled in the area of unpredictability. You just do not know what would happen next. In fact, it would be better off you just stop predicting what will happen next especially since the show is definitely full of surprises. And as you have probably heard already, there are so many characters who die in the show. Because of the mystery, topped with action, politics, romance, and a little bit of humor, watching Game of Thrones can definitely be a roller coaster ride of emotions.
The success of Game of Thrones is in part, due to the creation of very relatable characters. George R.R. Martin really did a good job in this. Anyone who watches the Game of Thrones will easily have some character to relate to. And in this show, women have been given of more character than other typical shows. As Martin once stated in the interview, he was able to write female characters very well since he treated them as actual people. Every character is definitely somebody to root for. In fact, even the evil characters will have even a small fan base of their own.
Of course, what would characters be without their actors and actresses? Game of Thrones has assembled a cast of excellent and extraordinary individuals. Okay, first of all, there is the people favorite, Peter Dinklage, who definitely added more character to TyrionLannister. And then there is also another crowd favorite, Emilia Clarke who starred as the Dragon Queen. Aside from her excellent acting skills, she’s also adored for her beautiful eyebrows as well as her sexy body. Then of course, there is Jack Gleeson who definitely played the evil Jeoffrey Baratheon with so much character that even some fans start to hate him in real life.
The CGI in Game of Thrones is definitely one of the factors that contributed to its success. In fact, the show has won Outstanding Special Visual Effects from the Creative Arts Emmy Awards twice – in 2012 and in 2013. Since the show features dragons as well as scary Whitewalkers, a lot of budget really has to be allotted in CGI. CGI is also mainly responsible for scenes that required thousands of soldiers in the battle field.
With so many reasons to love Game of Thrones, it is time you find out all about the fuss on Internet TV where you can catch all the episodes in your own free time!
