Few things have been able to unite people of different views and ideas successfully. Football has been universally acclaimed for the ease with which it achieved this feat; but there’s another hero – its name is Game of Thrones.
The hit show from HBO has been a force to reckon with ever since it first premiered in 2011. GOT, as it’s easily referred to, is the best show of the ’10s, and arguably the best TV show of all time. It has only grown in strength – popularity, piracy, hackers, viewers, merchandise sales, story and production quality. All these and many more bear testament to the fact that GOT is the real deal. A common saying nowadays is, if you’re not watching Game of Thrones, you haven’t started watching TV. And it is very true.
This is the reason many dread a world without GOT. And that world is fast approaching. The inevitable end is near.
GOT has done so much for us – It gave us a companion when we needed one the most. It gave us something great to talk about every week on social media. It raised the standard of TV productions, and made it a more profitable venture. It thought us to love, to not fear death and many other life lessons. These lessons are what we have to hold on to when the show is gone.
We have a season finale to worry about tonight, and one more season of captivating TV to look forward to. #GOTForever
