Many people are probably bugged by this question and GoT fanatics feel like clawing their eyes out every time they read this, but why is this show so popular? Many people feel that it is probably just the nudity because, at the end of the day Game of Thrones is a slow moving show, then there are nearly thousands of characters to remember which one may as well maintain a notebook dedicated to the show, moreover the show is anything but a family favorite as it has explicit sex scenes. Then what is the secret behind its success for which it stands to be the most watched show in the history of American television?
The main reasons why Game of Thrones is so popular:
1. The rise to power for women is what women enjoy watching: most women watch Game of Thrones as it is a show about how women rise to power in a world where man would rule. This is enjoyable for modern women given their struggle to power in the real world.
2. The story telling is a daring one and is also highly unusual. Season 1 of the show itself is a tremendous departure from the usual story telling of typical TV shows which got most people hooked to it.
3. The story is not completely fiction: this story may be based on the fictional book of George RR Martin but it is in fact not all fiction as he did his homework well. The stories on King’s Landing and Winterfell loosely describe how life was in the middle ages in Britain.
4. It keeps you at the edge of your seat with curiosity dripping down your spine! The story telling is so complex yet surprising that guessing what will happen next is a gamble like no other. This show has a reputation for being unpredictable and maintains it well to keep its viewers satiated.
5. Impeccable capture of the real world contrasts by the makers of the show. The creators of the show have captured the contrasts in real world feelings incomparably well for instance, with beauty associated to pain and suffering, honor with cruelty, earthly plot twists with murder, galore, illegitimate affairs and fantastical plot twists with dragons, white walkers. Thus, as a result a show is created which is unstoppable because it feels real yet fictional at the same time.
Convinced yet?! If not then get out of your comfort zone and give Game of Thrones a watch to know what is the secret behind its success, and even you may get sucked into its fantastical magic of pure, unadulterated entertainment.
