The Game of Thrones, an HBO series first aired in April 2011 has usurped the place of many popular TV shows. Adapted from the novel “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin, the show has seen a vehement increase in viewership and a dedicated fan following right up to its seventh season. The series uncovers plots, unleashes lusts and phenomenal murders- all between seven noble families at war just to gain control over the mythical land of Westeros. The exciting series has earned both- bouquets as well as brickbats. While it has been lauded for its exciting story line, acting, production values and complex characters, it has faced criticism for liberal use of nudity, violence and sexual violence. The thrilling TV show has elicited great interest and makes viewers greedily grab any tidbit of information available.
