Long gone are the days of Hindi serials like ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ as well as ‘Kasauti Zindagi ki’. No doubt they had their run, but today’s youth does not want the Ekta Kapoor drama of rebirths as well as family secrets. They need refreshment, a world where the television portrays stuff they can relate to, even learn from maybe. As well as English television series’ seem to do the right thing. ‘Friends’, ‘Big Bang Theory’, etc, have gained so widespread popularity in not only west, but also in a country like ours which has been in the clutches of the daily soap cliches since what feels like time immemorial.
The best thing about these shows is that they never drag themselves. It’s you who has to keep up with the pace of the story. Every incident has a meaning for the sow, as well as it ends where it should end. The director does not feel the need to make a man to take birth 4 times, or that classic shot of showing a slap three times!
The most talked about television series in the history of television, ‘Game of Thrones’ takes you to a world where the kings rule as well as politics flows in place of blood. The fight is for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms between seven noble families. The word ‘noble’ is controversial, since they will stop at nothing to reach their ambition. ‘Game of Thrones’ includes themes like religion, supernatural, love, family ties. The violence at times exceeds its reasonable extent, but it doesn’t feel out of place. Whatever you can imagine, as well as more, this show gives it to you. ‘The night is dark as well as full of terrors’ remains the punch line throughout the show. Because of excessive nudity as well as sex scenes, the show is considered unsuitable for below 18 years. Nevertheless, it is the most epic series, as well as a must watch.
