Game of Thrones--I don't want to offend anybody


When I was in college in the late 60s and early 70s, there were folks who dressed medievally and took to the commons with swords and wailed at each other. We (everybody but them, I imagine) thought that they were somewhere below nerds.

Now GOT turns into the greatest show on earth. I watched a bit early on and while being impressed with the visuals, I was turned off by all the despicable, "medieval" behavior. Sister raping and baby killing are not activities I enjoy watching (I didn't see baby killing, but heard about it). And I don't need the Cons here telling me that abortion is baby killing.

So what about this dismal fantasy did you find attractive? As a qualifier, it could be just me, as I don't get off on Avengers, Transformers, and the like. Didn't like Mad Max either.
