It’s (still) the show that everyone is talking about. Even after six-plus seasons, fans of HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones can’t seem to get enough. Since debuting in 2011, the show — based on author George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice series — has continued to deliver record-breaking numbers for the network and has become a global phenomenon that is virtually unmatched in recent years.
Countless accolades have followed, with many critics and fans proclaiming it to be among the best television shows ever made. With just two seasons left before the epic tale of the land of Westeros comes to a close, that status is relatively safe, barring the unlikely case of a Lost-esque decline in quality.
