What on earth is all this fuss about?
Game of Thrones is the most incredible programme to grace our screens for many years, possibly forever. The author has created such a detailed environment for his story to exist in and the producers have stuck rigidly to it, recreating everything religiously, including dragons. There is graphic violence, graphic language and a bit of sex.
The story revolves around cutting & rutting. I would expect some complaints about the beheading's and other gory deaths and my own pet hate is cussing, in particular, the use of the 'C' bomb, but come on....
We're all adults here, this isn't a show for children? Do we really still expect the camera to pan up when boobies are exposed. Should our stars rut with their pants on. Can we really have a brothel with no T&A on show. Who covers themselves up when engaging in coitus. Personally I'd rather censor my mirrors so that I don't have to see my naked body. It's a great programme and I love EVERYTHING about it except the 'C' word but I'll take it in the good old Anglo Saxon faith in which it's delivered. Enough with the bleating, these are not particularly civilised folk and it is the right setting for it.
George R. R. Martin, you're a genius and I'm so pleased I am around to enjoy your world. I hope and pray that you manage to:
A/ Maintain the quality storyline
B/ Reach a conclusion at some point (No rush).
C/ Maintain an audience so that Messrs Weiss & Beniof keep turning your stories into a TV programme.
Thank you HBO, you seem to have the monopoly on good TV this decade. ;-)
