So Joe My God posted a spoiler about the HBO series Game of Thrones.
I should start by saying I watched four episodes of it before I decided it wasn’t worth the time to watch anymore.
First of all I’m REALLY picky about my pre-renaissance dramas and melodramas. While I dislike Game of Thrones for the time it takes to develop plot, I enjoy the hell out of the series Borgia! The intrigue in Borgia was enough to hold my interest. And I also enjoyed Hemlock Grove too. Granted the latter is set more in contemporary time and contains two groups which I generally think have been overdone, werewolves and vampires. But Hemlock Grove actually shows a nice grotesque transition from human to werewolf that’s stunning.
But say you don’t like the series and the fanboys get REALLY upset. Usually I might get a response or two to comments I make on there. But we’re at five and counting now. One guys starts by saying “You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about…”
My reply was that if it take >4 episodes to get interesting I have no interest in watching.
As I write we’re now up to six responses. All saying I didn’t watch the series because after all there are three seasons. I couldn’t care less, what I’ve watched already was quite enough.
