I was just having some fun with it. You made a good point. I’m not sure that GoT was bigger in America than MASH (I loved Cheers and Seinfeld, but those were 30 minutes sitcoms), but worldwide, yeah, GoT has been enormous. Mind boggling really. You could realistically strike up a conversation about the show with a native of quite a few countries in the world (even a few that may not love us), if you can conquer the language barrier.
That’d be pretty neat for a couple people who are supposed to be enemies to bond over GoT. Shared experiences are really powerful that way.
I got to the GoT game late, after season six or so, but I thought the ending was terrible, made no sense, and did the entire series a disservice. You don’t build up an entire show to an epic battle for humanity and then have that be a mid season anticlimactic episode followed by events that make absolutely no sense. I still like Got but the last season in particular was total shit.
