My brother watches "Game of Thrones," and keeps trying to get me to watch it. "It's right up your street," were his words. I sometimes marvel that even members of my own family don't understand me, or have any idea about my taste. The little that I have seen of this series, the gratuitous depictions of sadistic sex, the foul language, the pseudo-mediaeval setting, a pagan pantheon, poor acting and just a general sense of arbitrary, tawdry nastiness together make this one of the programmes I am least likely to watch, let alone enjoy, right up there with Downton Abbey and Jerry Springer. But then I am not particularly keen on any contemporary television programme, for any number of reasons. It might use the metric system; it might have an ethnic presenter; it might be politically-correct in other ways. If it isn't bad enough leaving my house to be confronted with the modern world, I'd rather not see it on my television screen. And what I have seen of this "Game of Thrones" series suggests that it very much caters for a modern audience, who see nothing wrong with fornication, and bestiality, and not believing in the true God.
Do any of my readers watch this series?
