Personally, I don't get the big hoopla about Game of Thrones. My friend has been going gaga over it recently and forced me to watch the first episode with her. To say the least, I was fairly uncomfortable, watching that episode... Not because of the sex, or the amount of it, but because of how awkward it was. It was awkward in the way it was played out, in the way it was put in-between various scenes. Being from Europe, I really could care less about nudity... Honestly, I like attractive, nude bodies, but all that awkward sex just turned me way off... That and I'm not a big fan of gore, to be perfectly honest -.-
I don't know, I just borrowed the whole first season of True Blood from a friend, just for the sake of quenching my curiousity, so we'll see how that goes over with me. However, I don't care what anyone says, I'm not touching the Game of Thrones again. While I like fantasy, I was promised it would be more like the Lord of the Rings kind of a fantasy... I was sorely disappointed :/
Getting back on topic with sex on TV. Sometimes, I think sex is good on TV, as long as it's relevant and tastefully filmed. Good god, I can't even watch some of the porn videos because of the way it's filmed in some cases >.< However, I've only watched HBO when I still lived in Poland, which was a long time ago, so I may either not remember, or it's because I simply did not watch a lot of TV in general, but I got the impression HBO was much more innocent in those years, playing movies like this Snow White live-action flick I still have fond memories of up until this day.
