Why is everyone SO obsessed with Game of Thrones

What are the main elements that keep viewers hooked to the television show that has quite literally taken the world by storm. This can be analyzed from a psychological perspective or from an entertainment-quality perspective

  • I think the Game of Thrones deserves this popularity. Rather, I reckon The Big Bang Theory is a bit overrated in the teenager circles because most of them are interested in sciences and they want to show it off. Plus, Firends is absolutely more overrated than anything, even if it's a historic piece. So, first we tackle them, Game of Thrones comes later. – Abhimanyu Shekhar 5 years ago

  • The diversity of the characters would be an excellent point of discussion. There is something in GoT that appeals to everyone, there is at least one character that one can relate to, usually more. Another excellent point would be the universality of the themes in the show and books. It tackles a lot of concepts that appeal to a broad audience such as family, politics, love and responsibility. – Visenya 5 years ago

Life Stories: Can we handle the truth?

Something I don’t think many people know is that our favourite Harry Potter series by the beloved J.K. Rowling is very often thought to be based off Ursula Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea, which was first published in 1968. Authors cannot become authors without first being readers, and just as we all are influenced by certain ideas and genres, so are they.

Fanfiction: The Merits of Originality

Brilliant comparative article. I’ve seen all three of the films mentioned, and I must say the one that stood out the most to me was Gone Girl. The female psychopath is one too often forgotten in cinema as well as in literature. Amy plays into this very stereotype and gets away with murder by doing so. I think the psychopaths in both cinema and literature truly make for the most interesting and thoughtful characters.
