I was super excited to find out that Game of Thrones seasons 1 and 2 were free on my cable box! I watched the first episode of season 1 and I found it very difficult to pay attention. I really liked Daenerys. Bran fell off a tower because, ya know, climbing is bad. And uhhh, yeah. I don't really remember the rest because I was extremely bored. I did watch 10 minutes of episode 2 just to see if Bran was okay. 

I understand the appeal. Game of Thrones has several story arcs, nice graphics, and boobs. To me, it's mostly serious faces and formal speech which I find excruciatingly taxing to watch.
