Good game, good game..?

I'm just going to make, in light of a TV programme that returned for its fourth season last night, to make a confession.

I've never seen Game of Thrones (herein: GoT).

I've not read the books, either.

I'm not really likely to, to be honest. I realised a little while back that, with the exception of Tolkein and Pratchett, I far prefer science fiction to fantasy, and from what I've heard of GoT (two words: Red Wedding) I suspect it's quite likely to squick me out if I ever did watch it, given my low tolerance for gore and bloodshed.

Don't get me wrong - I'm aware of it as a cultural phenomenon, and I even have a t-shirt with a picture of Iron Man on the Iron Throne, and am well aware of the relevance. And I don't dislike GoT - that would kind of require actually having read and/or seen it.

But yeah. Given that loads of people seem to be posting about GoT on LJ and Facebook - and I know that quite a few of my friends really like it - I just thought I'd mention it. If you engage me in conversation about it and I don't have anything to say, I'm not being funny, I just don't have an opinion.

Hope that clears that up.
