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.

    I tried to watch the first evert episode. For me to like a show, it has to grab me instantly. Breaking Bad, 6 Feet Under, This life to name but a few. But this was like watching a panto on horseback. The dialoge and acting was childish at best.

    I snoozebusted my way through the whole episode, I found it boring, unengaging, stupid & camp. Its basically a soap opera with swords, tits, horses and dragons.

    Not for me thanks

    I too am a great lover of the fantasy genre, but for seem reason that I can't put my finger on every time I have tried watching it I have failed to fall in love or simply get into the story being told. Just feel like there is something wrong with me as everybody here in the UK seems to adore it and wait with bated breath for each new episode. Anyway, isn't it sort of a mandatory rule these days for every new fantasy/historical drama produced to feature an excessive amount of nudity?

    I agree, I don't get what's so great about it ... no subtly, just cheap thrills - the plot formula involves the following:

    1. boring, flat dialogue
    2. some douchebag making a speech
    3. 3 minutes cheap emotional drama
    4. tits
    5. doggy-style action
    6. repeat

    There you have it ... Game of Thrones.

    I love the setting, castles, swords, magic I'm a huge fan of that genre of film or T.V.

    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.

    It is a TV-show. You don't like it and so what?
    Why would you bother about not liking it?

    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.
