Atlantis and other abominations

Whilst channel hopping i’ve come across quite a few dimly lit viking/medieval/fairytale based tv shows lately.
What the writers don’t seem to appreciate is that Game Of Thrones has source material, the incredibly dense A Song Of Ice And Fire, a staggering mythos which is heavily diluted to create a season of television.
You can’t just use stilted English, gratuituous violence, full frontal nudity and the occasional ‘C word’ in a tired medieval/fantasy narrative and hope to replicate it’s success.

  1. I thought not having a TV was a virtue? I guess writing TV nostalgia shows contrast, since reality is subjective. Life is a parody. Game of thrones sounds interesting. Think I will watch The Daily Report on YouTube tonight. Thanks.
