I do everything in my power not to be pretentious about film or music or anything that can be subjective and really just depends on personal preference...
But, did you just compare Game of Thrones to a Pirates of the Caribbean movie?
I compared the storytelling mechanics. They are trying so hard to have 3-4 things going on at once it's just coming across as terrible. Joffrey's terribly leadership, a war, 10 love triangles, and the rightful heir to the throne?
Who can follow all of this? It feels exactly like the mess that was Pirates 3.
