Game of thrones popularly abbreviated “GoT” by fans is a fantasy drama series created by David Benioff and DB Weiss. It is based on a series of novels, titled: songs of Ice and Fire. The name of the show is based off the first book of the series “a game of thrones”. Game of thrones is aired by HBO and has attained record viewership in the channel.
HBO game of thrones has earned mainly positive criticism mainly for its impressive cast and their depiction of their roles, complex and continuously evolving characters, scope and top notch production values and wonderful story. GoT also has some slightly controversial genres that have caused a significant uproar in some circles, these are s3xual violence, frequent use of nu-dity. GoT has a prominent, broad and active worldwide fanbase.
Game of thrones has won a lot of awards; it won outstanding Drama Series in 2015 and 2016, it has also won 38 primetime Emmy awards. One of the most prominent reasons for GOT’s success is the originality of its storytelling owing to the fact that is screen written by the author of its original source material, George R. R. Martin. The author has also promised fans that the show will have a different ending from the songs of ice and fire series, this has also proven the unique nature of the GoT storytelling style.
Some of the GoT characters have even risen to the point of philosophical figures due to their unique take on various events in their lives. The most prominent GoT characters, solely based on my opinion are:
- Tyrion Lannister(the Imp)
2. Petyr Baelish
3. Lord Varys
4. Arya Stark
5. Daenerys Targaryen
6. Jon Snow
They are a whole lot of other wonderful characters, I’d strictly advise you to add this show to your “must watch” list.
