I love Game of thrones! I started to watch it after 4 seasons were released. I was shocked, awed, disgusted, and finally, hooked. There is something about this series isn’t it?
I am not some violence-loving action-film-watching weirdo (I don’t care what you think people! This is how I see me). But I like game of thrones. There is something very liberating when you see so many people die, so many marriages, well, go to hell, and so much of immoral crap, you just feel so lucky to be living in a blissful world.
I mean, no one can kill me. We have governments!! Hurray for democracy. I used to read a lot of romance novels, watch a lot of romcoms and “feel” a lot. I never even knew I needed GoT. The blatantly horrifying scenes just makes you get rid of all the “feelings”. Nowadays when I watch The Notebook, all I can think is, “Hmm… so they got to get old.”
I know, season 8 of Game of Thrones has not been sticking to the template (Gory, very gory, atrociously gory deaths). People die though, just not in that gory way (See what I’ve become!).
So, if anyone needs to feel happy and safe and secure. Please watch Game of Thrones. It makes you remind yourself that you live in a wonderful world. There are no undead who climb on top of you (Seriously! They climb… ), there is no Cerci, no tree people, no constant wars. We just have global warming, rising sea level, endangered species, extinct species, and excessive population. Hmmm… Hey!!! Are we the white walkers of Earth? With the amount of destruction and calamity we leave behind every place we touch….. are we? OMG!!!! Are we?
