TBH my main problem with it is that, if I get interested and invested in any of the characters, then I know for a fact that I'm going to get burned. I haven't seen the show (outside of that one episode), but I have seen the masses of outrage on social media whenever something particularly nasty happens to a popular character, and I just know that that's going to be me if I ever watch it. 

(Of course, I'm guessing the books are no better for this. If anything, I'm guessing they'd probably be worse :P )

Yeah, from what I recall of what I read loads of nasty stuff happens to loads of characters. Once you start caring about one, boop let's do something to them! XD

Yeah, I'm mean to my characters, but not that mean :lol: !

Anyway, it seems that this series has been the inspiration for quite a few baby names. 76 baby girls in the UK were called 'Khaleesi' in 2017, 343 were called 'Arya', and 11 baby boys were called 'Tyrion':

I hope these kids - especially the Khaleesis and Tyrions - aren't going to be bullied about it when they grow up :( ! (Then again, with the GoT series ending soon, it's possible that it'll no longer be relevant by then anyway :P )

The deaths are a bit exaggerated; Cercei and Jaime aren’t dead yet. And book wise, the Blackfish is still alive.

Well I wasn't even just saying deaths, like just the nasty stuff that happens to them. Of course a lot of series are guilty of that. I've watched a few anime's where they just start dropping like flies.
