over the past 2-3 weeks, i rewatched Game of Thrones, then over the past couple of days, rewatched Lord of the Rings. i much preferred Lord of the Rings. GoT is entertaining. it is also drenched in cruelty and every miserable thing humans might conceivably do to each other. we follow the story arch of a person who wants to rule and make the world a better place but succumbs to ego and is killed and the world is left to a handful of people who will most likely turn it back into the same mess it was before. LotR depicts the end of an age. goodness and love have won over incredible evil. we are not shown much of the new age to come, but we see that it starts well. these small thoughts. what do you say?
