What should a non - watcher know about it?
Daenerys Targaryen, one of the characters running for the Iron Throne has three dragons. Her dragons make her the most powerful amongst those hungry for the throne. She is called the ‘Mother of Dragons’.
John Snow another main character has been very popular with women. He is the leader of the ‘Night’s Watch’, a group of soldiers whose task (कार्य) is to protect Westeros from the White walkers.
Now who are the White walkers? They are the main threat (धमकी) that many desiring the throne are unaware (अनजान) of. They are the creatures (जीव) who are returning from death. The only weapon (हथियार) they can be killed with is the Dragon Glass.
The Starks are another important family. Each of their kids has a different story in the series.
The phrase that is most repeated in the series is “Winter is coming”. This indicates the fear of the advent (आगमन) of the white walkers.
Peter Dinklage who is a dwarf has played the role of Tyrian Lannister and done wonderful (अद्भुत) acting in the series. This character is smart with words and he loves wine.
There are advisors (सलाहकार) to each king and army chiefs who have distinct roles too.
It basically is a battle amongst 7 kingdoms and their together with the White Walkers. With an unpredictable (अप्रत्याशित) plot, the direction of the show sweeps one of his feet and makes it a must watch.
Why has it become so popular?
The series could have been like any other fictional (कल्पित) program but the unique (अनोखा) locations where it has been shot, the costumes of the characters and its splendid (शानदार) cast is what makes the program one of its kind (अपनी तरह का एक).
The direction of the show is exceptional (असाधारण). Every episode of each season ends with either the demise (मृत्यु) of an important character or a mystery (रहस्य) that is left unsolved (न सुलझा हुआ छोड़ देना).
Constant (लगातार) memes and jokes on social media have added to the series popularity.
