    They say that bc it's true. Objectively got is fucking amazing, and people who hate on tend to be fuckin oafs with big mouths.

    Not saying people that don't get it or don't like it are bad people. But they definitely lack either an imagination or good taste bc it just is what it is. A person who prefers hot dogs to steak would be a similar comparison.

    Seinfeld is also likely the goat comedy ever made. If you don't like it fine, but there's something missing in your brain then. And I wouldn't have to be a condescending prick if the oafs wouldn't go on these big fuckin crybaby sprees bc something is popular and they don't get it. It's annoying hipster behavior and it's fucking obnoxious.

    Um no. Seinfeld is practically the most hipster show ever made.

    "God, what's it with all these shows with substance? They totally need to make a show about nothing."

    Lol Marco Polo was an awful show and is a perfect example of what you're talking about. High production values. Bad writing an an awful main character.

    That's not what hipster means. At all, in my context it's a douchebag that thinks he's being cool by hating everything popular.

    Seinfeld is just a show with its own premise. You don't like it bc so many people do. It makes you a twatty hipster.

    Sorry, you and your fedora will have to cry in the corner on your own. I'm all out of fucks to give.

    So... you love all popular shows because they're popular, and everyone that says they don't like them, is because they don't like what's popular.

    So, you're the hipster of hipsters.

    If you believe in the Bible, incest has been going on for a long time and all humanity is a product of incest. The Egyptians practiced incest in the royal families.

    Agreed. I watch it and will continue to watch it until the end. But I don't think it's the greatest thing every on TV. The first few seasons were really good IMO and then it started to just turn stale and weird and kind of lame. Like I said, it's still really good and I will watch it. It's just pretty overrated by a lot of people.

    You'll probably love the show if you've never read the books.

    I can believe it. That's what people always wanted. Even Shakespeare was raunchy back in the day. Same implications and crazy stuff going on, we just have more modern media to portray it.

    The content has always been graphic, it's just that we have better technology to show the graphic scenes than they did, so old media relies a lot on implied scenes and subtle comments than in your face gore.

    It took me a few years to get into it. I tried watching it several times and just could not continue. This October I had a week off and I watched every episode in a row.

    i think it was a mistake to add Puff to the cast this past year. I know they want the cross over appeal for the kiddos, but he just isnt an intimidating looking dragon

    There was a GOT thread a few months ago and like you, i had never watched it. So while working weekend graveyard shifts at a hotel, I watched every season in about 6 weeks- it was great! Cant wait until the next season next summer!
