3 Ways to Fill the Game of Thrones Shaped Void in Your LifeNovember 18, 2014
Are you finding yourself with nothing to obsess about now that Game of Thrones has been off the air for a couple of months? Are you looking for a new show to fill the void? Here are a few shows that will help you with your post-GoT withdrawals.
Bonus: they’re all on Netflix. 1. House of Cards It has all the political intrigue of Game of Thrones, just in a different setting. Kevin Spacey’s character is basically Tywin Lannister, and his wife is Cercei, but with shorter hair.
If you like the twisted motivations and intertwining alliances of Game of Thrones, House of Cards is a great alternative to fill your time in GoT’s off-season. 2. Dollhouse Produced by the cult-favorite Joss Whedon, Dollhouse is set in a secret organization that wipes people’s personalities and replaces them temporarily with different personalities as they are ordered by their wealthy clients.
It’s impossible to sum up Dollhouse in such a short article, but suffice it to say that this show is worth a watch for the acting prowess alone. 3. The Tudors It may not have dragons, but The Tudors is as close to Game of Thrones as you can get in a television show. The show focuses on the reign of King Henry VIII and his many wives and children. The show originally aired on Showtime, so it was allowed to have all the grit and gore of Game of Thrones.
