You know, I’ll bet Jimmy is happy he’s all caught up on Game of Thrones.
At any rate, if he is, he can watch this video essay from A Matter of Film about how plotting and narrative conventions work (or don’t) on Game of Thrones.
The basic concept here is that the story works in a way to give the audience characters to root for and other factors. But then a certain wedding happened, and the video’s narrator does discuss a lot of the things Jimmy and I covered over on the Westeros Watch over multiple installments, but see the video also includes some information on how Game of Thrones may relate to other movies and TV shows. Check it out below.
