Five reasons the Game of Thrones TV show will blow your mind

1. George R.R. Martin is not at all afraid to viciously kill off characters

When an author is willing to kill characters to make for a better story, you know they are doing something right. His willingness to end lives makes his story 100% more unpredictable and thus far more intriguing and emotional! A successful story is one that makes you feel something…this show has put me on the brink of an emotional melt down more times then i can count. I would call that successful.

2. There is a Zombie Apocalypsewhite-walkers-5

The White Walkers were introduced at the beginning of the show. How amazing is it that an epic fantasy series has zombies incorporated within it…pretty fraken awesome. This ain’t The Walking Dead, the White Walker danger lurks idly in the background while the nobles of the land bicker it out for the Iron Throne. The Walkers are constantly at the fringe of your mind, you just keep waiting for the crap to hit the fan…It keeps you engaged… cruelly, but engaged none the less.

3. There are a ridiculous amount of plots happening

We have Jon Snow, White Walkers, Stannis Baratheon, Daenerys Targaryen, DRAGONS, Winter coming and a whole heck of a lot more. How Martin has intertwined his plots so fluently is nothing short of incredible. I just want to take a tour of his brain.

4. A+ CGI

Daenerys-Targaryen-game-of-thrones-23107710-1600-1200This one is pretty self explainable, the CGI effects in this show are very well done. I can only imagine how much of their budget goes into one dragon scene…keep ’em comin HBO.

5. Original and captivating opening sequence

If you haven’t seen the opening…just watch it. Seriously. Just click it. It will take 1:42 min of your life and you will never be the same. Do it.

Now that you have seen it…epic right?! I literally wake up to that song every morning, it is my alarm. I love it that much. The graphics are not only accurate but stunning as well. Throughout the show, they change certain sequences to show the towns current status. Attention to detail is always something i appreciate, and there is a lot of detail.
