Coming and going on the small screen

The sixth season of Game of Thrones just concluded with a finale filled with twists that were fascinating if you enjoy the show. I’ve been trying, but I still don’t get the appeal of the massively successful program, so popular it is broadcast live here at 4 a.m. on YES Oh on Mondays.

I watch it periodically and try to understand its appeal. When I tuned in recently with my teenage son, we were both impressed by the battle sequence in Episode 9, which reminded me of the movie 300 but with less revealing costumes. However, we were totally turned off when, after the battled ended, the evil Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) had his face eaten off by his own hounds. Not our idea of fun, but I realize we are in the minority here.
