20 Game of Thrones Quotes that Will Give You Chills

If you’re one of the few people who hasn’t yet seen a single episode of Game of Thrones, then I don’t know what you’re waiting for. And if you didn’t even hear about the show, you’re probably not from this planet.

Thrilling and entertaining, Game of Thrones proved to be a massive success from its very first season.

While some criticize the level of violence, nudity and the impact it has on its audience, the show continues to be one of the best on TV. Its plot lines and memorable characters have all the ingredients to hook viewers in. But besides magic and dragons, Game of Thrones mostly considers the human character and what individuals are willing to do for power or survival.
