Game of Thrones For Dummies

If you have been scrolling through your social networking sites, you may have noticed many people talking about Game Of Thrones, so what is it?

Game of Thrones is a television series which is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R.R Martin’s series of fantasy novels. The series is set on two fictional continents, Westeros and Essos. GOT (as it is called) revolves around the story of dynasty, arcs, rivals and brotherhood. Each one defending, claiming or fighting for their own independence and survival. Oh and did I mention that there is also incest! Yes you read that right, the series has relationships between and aunt and nephew, brother and sister (eww) and even cousins.


The reason for this was to keep the bloodline of the dynasty in the family, hmm sounds like something that is not too far from reality…

So what is the hype about? Why would anyone want to watch an incest filled series?

dragons Well, fans love it because it has dragons, manticores (a deadly bug), white walkers (humanoid creature), Wights (created by white walkers are animated corpses, like zombies, who are under the control of the White Walkers) and many more! But don’t be afraid, it is actually not that scary ( well to me it is not), after watching a few episodes you end to get used to these creatures and not to mention, the costumes of the entire cast is amazing! The huge 257 cast ensemble includes many famous actors and actresses such as  Emilia Clark, Kit Harrington, Sophie Turner, Jason Momoa and more!

Maybe this is not much, but it may give you an insight to why this is so popular.

Oh and Ed Sheeran also makes an appearance in one of the episodes!


DISCLAIMER: I know many people pressurize others to watch series or movies, I in no way intend to do that, I only want you to know the basics of what this series is about and then decide for yourself if you would like to watch it or not.

Please do not feel pressured in any way to go and watch GOT, even though you do not want to. I know many people who are not at all interested in it and they are living life to the fullest.

Please stop pressuring others or insulting them just because they do not want to watch the same things you do.
