If Silicon Valley Were ‘Game of Thrones’ Characters
Last night, the seventh-season finale of the Emmy-winning hit show Game of Thrones premiered on HBO. “Game of Thrones,” which is based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels, has grown into one of the world’s most popular TV dramas, and the internet is buzzing after yet another dramatic episode.
As viewers continue to digest the latest twists, social media platforms and fan forums are rife with speculation, theories, and show-related memes. There will likely be a long layoff between last night’s finale and the eighth-and final-season’s debut, so you can expect this hypothesizing to continue for some time.
One of the most remarkable accomplishments of Games of Thrones , perhaps even more impressive than its 38 Primetime Emmy Awards, has been its ability to transcend television and consume our everyday lives. In our modern world built on technology and instant gratification, it’s worth noting that a slow-moving epic set in a Middle Ages-like world has taken over our pop culture conversations.
At this point, it’s safe to assume that even those who don’t watch the show could recognize its main characters and discuss its basic plotlines. That kind of popularity allows us to have a little fun today-hence the title you see above.
