Sixth, in Game of Thrones, people are tortured, betrayed and murdered in search of power and wealth. Extreme violence, hot sex, taboo relationships … are all controversial but charismatic things.
Seventh, the filmmakers create tension, alternating, unpredictable. The fate of characters is not typical Hollywood style. Anyone can be stripped of their lives, from Eddard “Ned” Stark to Joffrey Baratheon. Whether satisfied or dissatisfied because “whoever has to die this season”, they are hard to leave the screen because all is too rational explanation.
Eighth, HBO cleverly attracts both new audiences and readers of old books. Film made after the book but there are “unique” circumstances, causing both subjects to be nervous, “heart tired” alike. At times, readers testify, predict what is going to happen, but the end result always surprises.
