Drama as it never was. YouTube, 18 seconds
Back in soap opera days, my mother had a sacred hour after mid-day dinner, in which she banned all children from our house, sent us out to do whatever we pleased. That was when she turned on television, held a cup of coffee, and watched “her” soap operas.
As the World Turns was her favorite with promiscuous Lisa, who was married to Dr. Bob, who had an on-going battle with Dr. John, who maneuvered and manipulated politics in the hospital, often foiled by Dr. Tim…who ultimately died from a blood clot following a broken leg. She and we all cried that day.
Great sagas like this cannot be matched, until I was grappled and then hooked by Game of Thrones.
Opening theme, 1 min. 41 seconds
Yes, say what you will and I agree. It is one bloody series, seriously bloody and violent. Betrayal, love and love discarded, torture, massive battles, dark magic, dragons with their dragon Queen, castles with their lords battling for control over the seven kingdoms, and much more exist in this world.
Evil, massive evil plays out here. Honor and loyalty redeem characters. Oh, I could ramble on, drawing lines (red lines) from one to another.
We have watched the existing six seasons, each with about
six ten episodes each. We have eaten them
all up, discussed the characters, etc.
Now we are in a desert. Season seven will not be released until
I guess I will have to find the tome written by George R.R. Martin, who had written Song of Fire and Ice, and then took off from that to create Game of Thrones.
I will do it. I will read this massive book, just to find out how the Dragon Queen is faring.
Dr. Bob and Dr. John will just have to battle on their own, with Lisa grabbing another lover.
