10 shows you like if you are Game of Thrones fan
Let’s get one thing straight- NOTHING can replace Game of Thrones. From snowy mountains to dark dungeons, or from epic battle scenes to the most beautiful VFX ever used in a show, Game of Thrones is the God of TV Series that has kept us hooked since 2011. No matter how much we try or research, there is no replacement made for this show. The perfect medieval look, fire breathing dragons, jaw dropping visuals, numerous fan theories and captivating cinematography, these few things are something only GOT has to offer, all in one.
However, after this season’s finale which will air on 27th August (if it doesn’t leak before that), we’ll have to wait for 2 years for the next season. Patience is not everyone’s virtue and to fill the void, here’s the list of 10 other shows which are also an epic fantasy like GOT-
This HBO series is set in the 1st century B.C. and follows the story of Ancient Rome’s transition from Republic to Empire. Just like GOT, this show was very expensive to shoot and lasted only two seasons. If history, war, power and politics is your thing, then this show might be the right one for you to watch.
If you love strong plotlines and want to be captivated and addicted, then you should definitely give Vikings a shot. Vikings begin with the story of Ragnar, who eventually rises to be the King Of Denmark after leading numerous raids in France and England. As the plot gets build up, Viking gets more interesting to watch.
Does pre-bible series make you go awe? Then this might just be the accurate show for you. This show doesn’t have fantasy creatures like dragons or white walkers but hey, mind-blowing sword fighting, gladiators and many plot betrayals are what this show has to offer. Now, can you afford to miss it?
- Black Sails
The name of this show gives a subtle hint about the main plot. This is about the adventures of Pirate Captain Flint who has to fight to take control of his island. Crazy adventures, pirates, thieves, violence and nudity are the core elements of this show.
House of Cards
House of Cards is totally different from Game of Thrones in every aspect but it’ll remind you of GOT because of its political backstabbing, sharp writing and flawless acting by one and only Kevin Spacey. Even if the political drama is not your thing, you should give this show a chance and you’ll know why.
This show is a lot similar to Game of Thrones as it strives for politics and everyone’s struggle for power. It is based on a true story of Henry VIII’s reign in England. Though it’s not totally historically accurate, it’s fun to watch because of the serious drama, witty scenes and the struggle for power.
Heart-wrenching deaths, gripping story line, incest, violence, torture, drama and many more elements describes this series which is very similar to Game of Thrones. This series is based on the real life Borgias family; which is worse than Lannisters. The struggle of this family to rise in power with the mixture of corruption, lies, and betrayal makes this show an entertaining one to watch.
