You're not alone. I mostly like science fiction. Star Trek, BSG, Firefly yes. Star Wars no. And LOTR and Hobbit did not do anything for me. But, Game of Thrones is in another league. I love Game of Thrones. For me, it is as good as the hype suggests it is. I was surprised by that.
Watch first first season of Game of Thrones and then come back and give us your feedback here. I am interested in finding out if your opinion changes.
