I will do my best to avoid spoilers in this blog. This HBO show has created a lot of die-hard fans and the acting is phenomenal and the story is extremely compelling. The nudity and violence is absolutely at times overwhelming, but the way the show deals with multiple storylines and multiple settings in a fantasy world is truly impressive.
Firstly, the show’s title sequence, which is paired with an incredibly cool orchestral theme shows the locations the episode will take place and hints at the state of each of those locations. It gives you a better sense of the state of the world and helps people know more about the show, which is very complex.
The complexity comes from the amount of characters that are all integral to the story. Their are many families feuding for power and also their are a lot of minor characters that the show still follows. In my opinion, I really enjoy this factor to the show. It is rare for a show to follow in depth over 10 characters, but this show does it and succeeds. In almost every episode, there is an A, B, C, D, etc. story in multiple locations. You are really unable to move away from the screen because you don’t want to miss a beat. The show is truly masterful in the way controls the complex nature of its characters and setting.
