    Surely that is not why it's so popular? Surely not!

    Oh my god I hope not, that is worrying. :cry2:
    Watch the first Happy Valley series. It's excellent.

    You answered your own question.
    But the story is ok
    This is pretty accurate

    Game of Thrones is popular for two reasons:

    1. It's actually a good, quality, well made show, with excellent acting and storylines.

    2. It's made in a way that forces viewers to root for a specific character, following them and supporting them, due to the cast being so large. There is a character for almost every viewer in the show, and therefore people like it as they can root for someone they relate to.

    It's not quite in the "Big 3" of Greatest shows of all time, but it certainly is very entertaining.
