It is Game Of Thrones season, and we all are psyched! But some of you do not understand what the hype is about? Why is everyone watching it? Well, it is because it is a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious series! It is not only geeky but interesting as well. Here are a few reasons you should watch Game Of Thrones:
The Intriguing Characters
The characters in the show are very intriguing. They are framed in such a way that you can’t help but keep thinking about them. The characters intimidating. You can’t help but compare who you match with-
Strong like Arya Stark,
Bold like Danearys Stormborn
Honorable like Jon Snow.
If you do like fiction, you’d love this show! It has all the mystical creatures you can think of like
Daenerys has 3 Dragons and they are amazing!
- White Walkers:
The army led by the Knight king who wants to kill everyone! Motive? Unknown, except a few theories.
Often confused with White Walkers, they are different. They are the real army of the dead and need no one to lead.
- Dire Wolves:
Well, I would just say that they are adorable & protective!
Children of the Forest:
Mysterious Non-Human Creatures. All they want is to live in peace!
Associated with Wildling army, let’s just say these giants are really powerful.
Apart from these, there are other mystical creatures like Manticores, Occasional Shadow Monsters, Stone Man & many more! If this doesn’t excite you, then what will?
The locations in the show are not only beautiful but real! The show makers took an effort to travel across different locations which matched the description in the book. That my friend is dedication!
The Character Development is Amazing
The character development in the show is beyond imagination. One moment you’ll love a character, the next moment you’ll hate them and the very next moment you may start to feel pity for them. It is simply amazing how George R.R. Martin plays with the characters.
Strong Female Characters
When I say strong, I not only mean that the formation of the characters is strong but also in power. They are independent and ready to take over the world. They have shown how they don’t need a man to rule the world.
Women like Daenerys Targaryen
Married at 13, she struggled with a lot. She survives even after her husband dies. She manages an entire army of Dothraki to follow her. Even the unsullied worship her!
She escaped after her father died and traveled the road. She learned the art of swinging the sword and now she is one of the finest swordsmen!
Brienne of Tarth
She needs no man to protect her. She can take care of herself and in fact, she can lead an army in a war.
She can do it all! She can’t fight with a sword but she can use her mind like a sword.
I have always found fictional battles really boring. Like what fun would anyone get watching other people fight? But when there is a war in Game of Thrones, there wouldn’t be a single dull moment. You’ll always have fun watching them. Some of the greatest battles are:
- The Battle of Black Water
- The Battle of Bastards
- The Frozen Lake Battle
Not a single boring moment!
Classic & Rad One-Liners
The show has really cool one-liners! These one-liners & dialogues will be used to reference for years and years.
You know Nothing Jon Snow
Winter is coming
I drink & I know things
The show is more than just battles, throne & magical creatures. It has a lot of wisdom to offer. Characters like Tyrion Lannister, Lord Varys & Petyr Baelish have taught us some amazing things like:
Never forget what you are, the rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor and it can never be used to hurt you.
Power is a curious thing, my lord… Power resides where men believe it resides. It’s a trick, a shadow on the wall. And, a very small man can cast a very large shadow
Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love – illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is!
So all villains are crooked? There is something about the villains in this show. You will love to hate them. You would wish them to be destroyed & at the same time, you’ll admire them with your heart and soul.
The show has given some of the most amazing villains of the history like:
Till date, my favorite scene is the one where Joffrey dies!
Oh, he was really wicked & handsome!
No matter how intelligent you are! You may brainstorm and come up with different theories of what may happen next or who is going to be killed next, but you will never be right. The show is unpredictable AF!
I guess I have given you enough reasons to watch the show. It has everything from Politics, family feuds, true love, cool creatures, wisdom & a lot of sass!
