I have no idea who you are or how you think but it's in my top series list. It's something you can't stop watching. The strongest part of Game of Thrones is the fact there's no true main character. It balances out perspectives and you choose the side you want to believe is the main character. It can't be rightfully described unless you watch it yourself. edit: Personally, I never liked medieval-type movies/shows, they never caught my interest and I always thought they were boring, but Game of Thrones changed my mind.
