GAME OF THRONES - Effect on Fantasy Genre

"What blockbuster ‘Game of Thrones’ meant for the fantasy genre" PBS NewsHour 5/17/2019


SUMMARY:  For the millions of viewers around the world addicted to HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” winter is coming, this weekend.  The television phenomenon, which upwards of 17 million people watch per episode, concludes its eighth and final season with no shortage of attention or critique.  Jeffrey Brown reports on how the series became a sensation, where it fell short and what it means for the fantasy genre.

COMMENT:  I have read may complaints on Twitter/Facebook about season 8 ending, but from what I see many have forgotten that it's "The Game of THRONES."  The show was not about the 'coming winter' or any other issue than who will sit on the "Iron Throne."
