There are three different ways to react to this present week: “Just another ordinary week”; “Why did China ban Winnie The Pooh, really?” or “After all this time, winter has finally come!”
The truth is that these tv series has reached the most varied types of people. For outsiders, it might look like just a show about the medieval era, rich kings and war.
Some call it overrated, but I don’t think that is a fair statement. Game of Thrones didn’t turn into a cult series just by chance – and it will be a hard one to top.
It took time. It took a lot of work. What made the show come to where it is now, was the viewers. The “satisfied customers”. And how? Through ordinary recommendations to their friends.
It’s all about the value of the content.
And what are the major sources of this value? The first one is probably the plot: it’s enormous, dense, complex, perfectly put together and never fails to surprise us every time. Then it comes the characters, and by this I mean the ones that became pretty iconic in the tv series’ world: like Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, Tyrion and Cersei Lannister (Yes, Cersei is epic and you know it). And why do we like these characters so much? Okay, we might cut Cersei out of this part. Well, they are unbelievable and absolutely inspiring. This, of course, has everything to do with the plot, for they are legends, their personalities, their choices, their actions, their choice of words and even their facial expressions.
Game Of Thrones is about quality and engagement. About the viewers and not letting them down.
As a die-hard fan of tv shows, it is difficult for me to find one who engages me in all episodes, who makes me super anxious for the next one. I probably just need one hand to count all the tv series that make me feel that way.
