Game of thrones: the best show ever?


Brady Karras

While going through your daily lives, it is likely that you have heard of the hit show Game of Thrones. The enormous fan base produces a very outgoing, persistent, and obsessed demographic. If you have not ever watched the show, hopefully this article can provide insight on why people become so addicted to it.

Game of thrones started off as a book series by George R. R. Martin. The first book in the series came out in 1996 and became vastly popular prior to the release of the second book. Shortly after the drop of the book on the market, it swiftly became a New York Times best seller with thousands of people reading the adventurous tales of George R. R. Martin.

Game of thrones is well known for the medieval political drama and deep character development. You will constantly hear fans talk about events in the show like the red wedding and lots of the dramatic scenes. Most of the well known characters include, Khaleesi, the mother of dragons, and Jon Snow.

The amount of viewers recorded on the show is truly incredible. An average of 18 million viewers per season. The amount of viewers for each season trumps the populations of countries like Greece, Portugal, Cuba, Israel, Hong Kong, and New Zealand.

If you have interest in game of thrones, I recommend it tremendously. But you might want to hurry up, the last and final season of the show, season 8, is out and the show is almost at the season finale!
