Everyone on the show is a walking meme. You can literally describe every single character with "le" + 2 word description +"man"/"lady."
That said it is enjoying if you know it's not as good as normies say when they're sucking it off. It's fine for what it is. Watch a few episodes and decide for yourself. If nothing else it's a good time sink.

>>25783420 I liked the first 4 seasons and then made the mistake of reading the books. Absolutely despised season 5 because of that. I almost with I hadn't read the books because I was perfectly happy with the show, and now it's forever ruined.
TV is normie by default. Even "losers" in Big Bang Theory lasted all of one season before they all had some form of romantic relationship, and threw out their toys for women. Even Screech and Urkel lasted longer before they had the obligatory normie relationship.
Some normies I can relate to a little more than others, like Walter White or Tony Soprano. They live in a world of their own mind, constantly having to put up a front of someone that isn't them. I can't relate to the relationships with their wives and Tony's mistresses, but the rest is relatable.
>>25783420 Tumblr watches the shit out of it, that alone should tell you something. It's incredibly mediocre and overrated, as well, in my opinion.
You want an English live-action robot-tier show, Always Sunny In Philadelphia is of course always golden and surprisingly enough I'd recommend Parks & Rec, it's not full fanservice but the feminists are generally painted as ridiculous and petty, and nerdy/socially awkward males are painted as fun/good people (although they are surpassingly physically attractive, that's to be expected in a popular TV show.) It's one of the rare shows I think you can watch and take it exactly as you want to.
ACTUALLY, holy shit you know what's a robot-tier show? Watch the BBC series Life On Mars, there was an American remake and I wouldn't pay attention to that at all but Life On Mars is absolutely robot-tier. It's hands-down one of my favorites of all time.
Most everything else robot-tier I watch is animated, if you want animated robot-tier stuff (obviously you already know Watamote) I'd suggest Fullmetal Alchemist (both incarnations, for the solitary-male-bonding themes and glorification of the pursuit of knowledge over emotions), maybe Hellsing, Cowboy Bebop, I guess the robot-tier stuff I watch is only the big names now that I'm typing it out.
>>25783420 I honestly can't stand it. I've put it off for years until I recently decided to watch the first season. And after finishing the first season I would say I'm not impressed. oooh boobies! wow so mature, adult meme.... It's fucking boring and shit tier.
I loved Game of Thrones. I'm superior to most "creatures".
Ever since I was young, my taste in movies, tv-shows and games have been very high.
I do not watch Budget tv-shows like Law and order, and I feel disgusted by those who view low tier shows.
Game of thrones hold high quality of production except Season 5 which was garbaged, also alot of tumblr/reddit/normalfag and disgusting women like the show.
I have realized that avoiding finding out the userbase/fanbase is good to avoid and a bitter aftertaste in entertainment.
Just pretend reddit(/tv/) and women dont watch it, pretend the show was made exclusivly for you, and buy some dank from darknet and disappear from our shitty world. Or get a few litres of wine, it's really fun to drink, when the other characters drink, for maximum immersion.
>>25783420 why would you give a shit about whether or not something is normiecore. Just watch it if you like it like a man.
Just remember it's not the same as the books. The formats are different, so the tv series has been rewritten for practical purposes and book purists are endlessly butthurt about that. "It's not supposed to go like that" nah, the book is a different story with different characters. Accept that and watch the show for what it is, not a filmatisation of the books, and you'll be fine.
>>25783479 That's because the show has become so popular and the memes have grown around the characters, based on them.
>>25783576 I've read all of the books after season 2 and I think it's fine. The books are so massive and rambling it'd be sheer murder to try to turn that into a faithful tv adaptation. It's different when you see their names written on the page, when the prose reminds you that this is Ser Duncan Blacktree of Ravenwood Hall in the north, sworn to the Starks etc, and you can skip to the character glossary at the back to check who the fuck this dude was and what's their relationship to everyone.
On tv, you can't do that, and people need to remember everything based on the character's faces alone and every name gets mentioned maybe once per episode, unless it's a main character. It's a very different format.
Hence, the show is a different thing from the books. It's been evident from season 2 onwards, they're taking it to a different direction and they're separating more and more. Everyone whining "it's not like this in the booooks" by this point is a fucking retarded autist. It's been obvious for YEARS it's not gonna be like in the books, the storylines are slightly different, the characters, despite sharing the names, are slightly different people. For fuck's sake.
>>25786361 I'm one of the book snobs, but I have to say you've got a good point. It's not really fair to expect them to adapt the books one to one. That being said, I think they've missed some opportunities with skipping or simplifying certain character arcs, such as lady stoneheart. The show has caught up already when they had enough material to easily make another season. That being said, I've heard the new one will be more of a flashback season, so perhaps we'll get some of the cool history of the world in the show.
>>25786447 Yeah definitely the show could have been done a bit better in places, the Dorne arc for example in the last season was just painful.
But still, the biggest point of whining seems to consistently be "it wasn't like this in the books" and I think that's just retarded. The show is a tv show. It needs to attract and be easily followable to showfag viewers who haven't waded trough the massive books. It can't do that if it's a faithful adaptation because of the humongous cast and the sprawling nature of the books. And besides, the books aren't written for good tv (save for the early books), there's a very long "calm development before the storm" phase where the characters and plotlines are moving to positions, in a way, and that makes for very boring tv. It's not about having "enough" material, the material needs to make for good and interesting tv.
People just don't want to accept that formats are different, that's all. I don't get it. Instead on one story you get two, you get the book canon and the slightly AU show canon. It's interesting imo
>>25786571 Yeah, you're right. I just wish you weren't. I enjoy slower, political based plot lines (Legend of the Galactic Heroes is one of my favorite animes, for example), so the show following the books would be great for me, but it'd never gain any mainstream traction that way. The one thing I am really happy about is that the show has managed to maintain a relatively high production value. Aside from some spotty CGI in places, they've done a great job translating the universe to the screen, especially for a TV series. But that's HBO for you I suppose.
>>25783420 I've seen one episode (I think it was the first season?)
It was absolutely terrible. Like 1/3rd of it was some subplot about some queen bitch and her servant bickering. The dialogue and everything going on was so obviously structured solely to appeal to the female audience. There are some parts of GoT that seem interesting but when it keeps cutting to some useless, shitty, dialogue by something sex related it just absolutely kills it. It's like they tried to make a series that appeals to as many people as possible And judging by its popularity it worked. The reason this show is popular is because it appeals to a lot of people, when something appeals to a lot of people it's something circles of friends can discuss, it's a social thing and when something is constantly discussed it's obviously going to gain more attention by people wanting to be part of the discussion
