Game of Thrones? Am I Too Dumb or Too Smart to Love This Show?

I've tried! I've tried! But I just don't love Game of Thrones.

I've talked with my friends, who swear by it and everything that HBO airs. I've read the blogs that laud the show and heap praise on the costumes and the action. I did research about the period. I've done sociological studies. I let a fellow journalist interview me about America's love of vikings shows. 

I even watched the damned thing on Sunday night.

And yet...no love.

What am I missing? What am I doing wrong? I found the dialogue to be outright silly. I couldn't follow what passed for a "plot," either.

I can only assume that I am at fault here. After all, Game of Thrones has captivated much of the rest of America. The nation clearly loves this show and just about everyone I respect waits impatiently for it to come on the tube on Sunday nights.

I suspect that the same sort of crowd that loved True Blood love Game of Thrones despite the evident differences in plot, period and characters. True Blood, you see, flourished (I think) because it contained a definite fantasy element and gave viewers a refreshing sense of escape from their normal humdrum lives. Instead of obsessing about the problems in the economy or their office, they could go on a magic-carpet ride with Anna Pacqin & Co., watching vampires in Louisiana (come on -- where else would blood suckers want to set up shop, anyway?).

The True Blood characters were beautiful, if completely unrealistic and unimaginable. They didn't exist in real life any more than, say, the cast of Girls. But Girls is rooted in reality. We can relate to those characters (well, maybe) and their day to day hassles and insecurities and dreams.

But with shows like Game of Thrones, I can't relate to nuttin.' 

The one characteristic that Game of Thrones shares abundantly with True Blood (and lots of other cable dramas) is shots of naked flesh. The women are lovely and sexy and, to a middle-age man's delight watching at home, occasionally -- or often -- scantily clad if not completely naked. Sex sells on HBO, and perhaps that is the real lesson of Game of Thrones' success.

Maybe I'm just a cynic.

Or maybe I'm just stupid.

Or maybe I'm just a stupid cynic.

    It is a TV-show. You don't like it and so what?
    Why would you bother about not liking it?
    Just don't turn it on then.
    BTW, what you describe is like reading the back of the book and telling everybody you read the book and it's shit.
    You really want to write a review, then go through more than just one or two episodes and make a point. If you just want to share your point-of view, use twitter.

    I agree. I lived near central park when they were promoting this show before it's premiere and I thought it looked like the stupidest commercial junk ever, just a money grab by the way the ran the promotion. I'm surprised that it turned out a hit with good acting. I like the midget actor usually and played d and d growing up, but this is a boring soap opera to me, which might be good for an hour and a half of my life, but not good enough for wasting time on a whole series of something predictable. Thanks for writing this article and representing the other side. Still I'm happy everyone enjoys it, but I just can't sit down and enjoy this one.

    I've watched the first few episodes and it's fine, i get it, it's shot well and all but it's like the lord of the rings movies in that i have no interest in ever watching them ever again, likewise with going back to the world of GoT. It's just so corny - particularly the dialogue. It honestly feels like it should be a History Channel show (the new history channel which plays viking shows and reality tv) not something alongside HBO's mostly prestigious lineup. Also the idea that half (or more?) of people watching the show already know what's going to happen since they read the books doesn't sit well with me. Half the fun of a serial drama is the discussion and theorizing. Imagine the Breaking Bad writers letting 1 million select people in on the finale or whatever. That sucks, right? Same thing, really.

    The title "Game of thrones" tells the whole story - That it is a show about power, greed, scheming, war, gods, costumes, magic, honor and all that crap. So I never bothered to watch the show because I know the sequence of events is mostly predictable.

    Though I will have to admit, this isn't a show about vikings. You keep referencing vikings but that's not what GoT is. A period piece, yes. Not vikings.

  • Frank | May 9, 2013 3:32 AMReply

    I have watched complete season 1 and 2 and agree Game of Thrones is a silly stupid story from no other than HBO. Too much senseless nudity (want nudity, get some porn) and from the moment I saw baby dragons I knew it was going to be downhill from there. People praising this junk are the true retards.

    When you say, "I researched the period", I take it you mean you researched the War of the Roses, right? The "period" that Game of Thrones is set in doesn't exist, it's a fantasy series set in a fictional world, you do understand that?
    As for relatable characters...I'm pretty sure I have more in common with the Hound than I ever will with any of the characters in "Girls".

  • Ryan | June 7, 2013 6:08 AM

    I highly doubt you can relate to the Hound unless all you do is get piss drunk and kill people. As far as researching the period, its obviously in reference to the medieval ages and feudalism. C'mon, it wasn't that hard to figure out.

    Hey guys some people cant follow stories, the US is one of the most uneducated countries in the world. I blame the system for letting this poor guy become so stupid he does not know how to start a show from Season One and compares it to trashy mindless True Blood. Also I love his list of things he's studied to show us he not Completely Retarded or some sense of he KNOWS the period and should be trusted..

    I feel like this whole thing was just copied from someone's Facebook rant. Really not worthy of ever being published.

    Useless article.

    What is the point of this article? Is this just one big troll? As stated before, you watched the second episode of the third season and complain about not getting into it. Yes, you obviously are too dumb but for many reasons not listed in this piece.

    I have to agree with you. I watched the first season, tried out the books, read the reviews, talked to friends, and even tried the second season and got bored halfway through the first episode. I just don't get it. :/

    This is just a TV-show. Get over it. You don't like it. So what?
    No need to like it. And why would you "try" to like it?
    Can't even believe someone wrote about this.

    Which is fair. But you certainly did way more than this author did.

  • Jacob | April 9, 2013 3:23 PMReply

    You have to watch from beginning to end, Season 1 to now, for any sort of plot to shine through the vast array of characters and storylines. Complaining you can't find the plot in the second episode of the third season is silly.

    And to say the real lesson of Thrones is that sex sells makes you look like a moron. Deadwood had nudity, Boardwalk Empire has nudity, yet both are considered excellent dramas, for both acting and writing. I'm not saying Game of Thrones is Deadwood quality, but it's a damn good show.

    True blood is not cool anymore... Wake up and read a book

    How did this article even get published?

  • JEB | April 9, 2013 3:11 PMReply

    It's pretty stupid to watch the second episode of the third season and then complain that you can't follow the plot.
