Why some of us just do not miss Game Of Thrones...

The main ladies in Game of Thrones and whatever in black. It's been two months since the Game Of Thrones season four finale and  while millions of hardcore GOT fans are obsessively focused on the season five, there are many of us who couldn't give a pile as to whether this majestic concoction of barbarism returns on our TV screens. Here, on behalf of this small selection of 'no fuck givers', we present you FIVE reasons why some of us just do not miss this show: 1. Beards and snow We cannot get excited about watching large numbers of big bearded people regularly screaming at each other in the snow while anthemic soundtracks play in the background. They are constantly pissed off with each other and either end up getting into physical fights or walking in the direction of a mountain in order to join others who, ultimately, do not appear happy to see them when they arrive either.

Can you believe, this is the feature with the highest readership of the pieces I have written for them so far? Odd. Anyway, personally, I'm more excited about this show: Silicon Valley   - funnier than The Big Bang Theory. No shit. Silicon Valley - geeks and more geeks... Next...Orange Is The New Black - season three. Mrs Pee Pee
