Aegon of House Targaryen sets out on his brave and bloody conquest to defeat the seven reigning families of Westeros. An impossible feat were it not for Aegon's possession of feared and ferocious dragons.
I know "GOT" -- the reverse morality tale -- has been trending for the past few years, but I have to say I'm not impressed. The show itself is awful. The best thing about all seven seasons so far is the theme song (and great graphics on the intro).
Sean Bean -- AKA, the best of Season 1 -- doesn't last to the end of the season. His family -- the only quasi-moral characters of the series -- are broadly dispersed to be messed with and traumatized in their own ways, MAINLY by the evil Cersei and her minions. (No spoilers, but COME ON!)
The theme seems to be that good people will be punished... unless you have a dragon, then of course everyone roasts equally if you're not careful.
So many references to a "Mad King," but everyone in the show seems rather mad. Touched by all of the seven deadly sins -- as well as a few more sins the creative team just tossed in for good measure.
After the overdose of violence and inappropriate sexual acts carried out from seasons 1 through 7 the viewer is ready for the White Walkers to take over.
