Re: Game of Thrones
Yeah the other thread is as much for the books as it is for the show. It's filled with spoilers. A new one is welcome for sure, but we should only discuss the actual show. Leave the books and spoilers out if this.
And Game of Thrones really isn't anything like LOTR save they're both fantasy. Game of Thrones is brutal, filled with sex, as well as other very adult themes. It's definitely a show for adults only. I suppose the LOTR is almost unavoidable as it's the most mainstream example of fantasy in existence. The supernatural in Game of Thrones is far less ubiquitous than it is in LOTR. In fact, at times you forget it's a fantasy realm. Then something amazing happens and you mark the fuck out as a dragon melts some poor bastard's face.
Oh and how bout that Emilia Clarke?
