Give HBO's 'Game Of Thrones' A Chance There's Really Something For Everyone

Warning: Includes Spoilers


I'll be the first to say, watching violent television shows isn't my thing. All of my friends and family members can tell you that I can't handle the sight of blood and guts. Although "Game of Thrones" has this in every episode, I love every minute of it. "Game of Thrones" is the type of show that includes every genre you can think of.

So even if you're the type, like me, that has to hide behind a blanket when the violent battles break out, before you know it the next big scandal like someone of royal status hooking up with their sibling is happening. Along with that, "Game of Thrones" has so many complex characters that make it hard not to get attached. Some you'll come to love and some you'll absolutely hate. On top of that, it has the most amazing scenery (that alone makes the show worth watching) in every single episode.

The suspense is never ending in each episode. Although it's a popular binge-watching show, in April when the new season comes out I'm sure I'll be on the edge of my seat waiting for every Sunday to roll around. The plot is very elaborate, with almost every episode exposing something new and outrageous.

Even though a lot of these scandals include characters being killed off, it's still worth watching. Every dedicated "Game of Thrones" fan will tell you that seeing the malicious and widely hated on characters finally dying is probably one of the best parts. A close second favorite of mine is the most realistic dragons to appear on a screen. Just when you think it can't get any more exciting, the king is poisoned, someone is being beheaded, or a dragon is lighting up an entire army.

With that being said, sometimes when a character dies off, it was actually one you were rooting for. The characters, whether they're the good guys or the villains, are all completely developed to the point where it seems like you get to know them on a personal level.

Your favorite characters will make relatable human mistakes and your heart just naturally goes out to them. You know their families, what they've been through on this 8 seasons long journey, and when they're about to come to their end you can't help but feel sad. I often find myself thinking, sure the show just lost an incredible main character, but what about me? I fully invested myself into getting to know them and now I don't get to see them win at the "Game of Thrones?" But sure enough, because the show moves so quickly, another character gets introduced that is just as great, if not better than the one you thought you couldn't live without watching.

While taking on this insanely long show there might be times where you slightly lose interest. I mean, there is A LOT of war scenes. But those are the moments when you get to pay attention to how amazing the scenery is. Throughout the 7 seasons already available, "Game of Thrones" has been filmed in Northern Ireland, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Scotland, Spain, and the United States.

I'm sure the computer-generated imagery has a lot to do with how extraordinary every scene looks, but watching it for incredible places where they shoot the show won't waste your time. Season 8 of "Game of Thrones," also known as "The Final Season," comes out April 14th. So you have about a month or so to get started on the first 7 seasons.
