2 Game Of Thrones April 17, 2011 – Present
HBO’s Game of Thrones is a massive critical and commercial success. It’s a medieval fantasy-drama set in the fictional Westeros and Essos. It features an ensemble cast and follows several complex storylines. It’s based on the novels A Song of Fire and Ice, written by George R.R Martin. The series is universally praised for its outstanding writing, incredible directing and phenomenal cast. However, the series is also known for its violence, intense sexuality and graphic nudity. The nudity and sexual content has received an enormous amount of criticism. Many critics feel that the sex and nudity has little to do with the plot and the purpose seems to simply be to pleasure the eyes of men. Also, it’s been pointed out that a majority of the nudity is women. Regardless, the series remains a tremendous success and has won several Prime Time Emmy Awards.
