Alternatively you can just fill it with sex, death and midgets and boom, instant epic.

I don't like Game of Thrones, the plot doesn't excite me and I feel they add all the sex because they can't make up some real scenes.

inb4 they follow the story of the books, I know.

I'm curious. Please elaborate further. What doesnt excite you about the plot? The sex scenes are quite ****** up and as such i mainly disregard them for the true old fashioned epicness and great characters and plot twists and turns

I'm not sure. I am generally a fan of the fantasy genre, but this time it feels more like a drama show with gore than a fantasy. Also I have a deep burning hatred for the little lanister boy, the girl who is supposed to marry her, the older sister of the lady stark and the guys on the wall in general. I guess you all know why I hate the little boy, and the girl is annoying as **** and generally a bitch. The older sister is crazy and think the world revolves around her. And the guys on the walls think they are so heroic, doing nothing all day. About the plot I havn't watched enough to form a real and deep meaning about, but it seems like it has been made a ton of times before. And I can't really look away form the sex scenes as it seems they make up half the series.

If he managed to make a character that fills you with burning hatred, then both the actor and the writer did a dahm good job. I have no complaints about the many annoying bitchy characters, especially when there's Halfman, Arya, Mother of Dragons, Varys and so on.
The plot is incredible methinks. It is a medieval setting, with no gore and explicitness spared, so that only sets it deeper in the setting. The whole complicated game of throness and them being so caught up in their own goals that they disregard the danger luring in the north. It's kinda epic. The books are without a doubt on my top three favorite, and the show was supervised by George himself, so i look forward to seeing that

I wasnt trying to. I just want to know more about why some people don't like it, which i can't really set myself into. I can't see how your points are overly valid to drive someone to dislike it, but i see where it starts from

Ye I guess it is like you say. Those factors only stop me from liking the series, but I could still watch it even with them in it. What totally ruins it for me I think is the obscure about of sex scenes. It's OK if they just imply that sex is gonna happen, and I have no problem seeing sex on tv, but I feel like they try to force me to like it because of the sex. like "You're a guy, here have some sex... Now love our show!"

No. Buy the DVDs like everyone else and support the franchise. I waited until recently gor seasons 1 and 2 to come down in price and got them both for £30 total. That's just under $45.

Supporting shows like that demonstrates that making quality programming is more profitable than making cheap reality T.V.

At which point was Gollum ever striving for redemption??   
   
I'm pretty sure he was always in it for himself

There was a part I think in the second movie where he got rid of his evil personality and he was happy and tried to become better. After the hobbits betrayed him, the evil personality came back and made him do evil again. He was seeking help while the evil side kept messing him up.

He banishes his evil side and becomes trusting and reliant on Frodo. Unfortunately when Faramir captures them Frodo helps them capture Smeagal in a non fatal manner. Smeagal feels betrayed and turns back to his evil side.

Gollum is a split-personality in the film adaptations (I can't remember **** from the books) Gollum was in it for himself, but Smeagol temporarily wanted redemption for the murder of his best friend and for whom Gollum turned him into.

That was due to Smeagol essentially being bullied by Gollum and so manages to banish that side of him until he gives in later on

He's not striving for redemption in the most obvious sense of looking for forgiveness but he is trying to throw off his old self and live a better life. He doesn't seem to want forgiveness at any point, rather he just doesn't want to do the evil things Gollum makes him do.

So he is striving for redemption in a more cosmic/karmic sense of trying to be better and get rewarded with a better life as opposed to straight-up asking for forgiveness.

You do realize that hobbits can live up to 400 years old.. 50 is mere youth - middle age. Peasant.

i have no idea where did you get that, but if i remember biblo was the oldest hobbit ever and he left the shire at the age of 111 and he left middle-earth at the age of 131. Bilbo turned 131, and became the oldest Hobbit in Middle-earth, quote from lotr.wikia.com

But Hobbit's age much more slowly. They live longer, generally, because of this.

They do live a tad longer, yes. But it was also partly because of the ring, which slowed his (and Bilbo's) aging. Pippin, Merry, and Sam are all over a decade younger than Frodo. Pippin, the youngest, is 22 years younger than Frodo.
In the books, it mentions the hobbits of the Shire are actually kinda suspicious of how Bilbo aged so well and lived as long as he did after returning from his adventures. Likewise, they're kinda suspicious of Frodo for staying so youthful. They see the Baggins are sorta strange.

Well, 50 is kinda middle-aged by Hobbit standards. It's how old Bilbo was during The Hobbit. But the ring slowed both Frodo's and Bilbo's aging. So, Frodo did remain youthful, physically speaking.

I like how in the last step (character striving for redemption) they all achieved redemption, except Gollum. He could've been redeemed and everything would've been fine, but he decided that Frodo had delicious fingers instead.

In the books (maybe the final one) there is a moment where Gollum shows a glimpse of his 'humanity' and wants to help Frodo but then Sam is a dick to him making him revert to the 'nasty hobbitses' mode and ruining his chance at redemption.
Sam, I may love him in the films but he doesn't half piss me off in the books.

Gollum in a way was my favorite character and in a may more important than some other characters in the story. At least to me, he helped keep a structure. Gollum was never a good or bad guy, at all; in a way he suffered from a multiple personality disorder. He did his best to fight it but ended up failing.

I think we should see a short story all about Gollum and his life. He was a really interesting character that was written out well.
