Here’s Why Game Of Thrones Was Almost Never Made

Game of Thrones has exploded into being the most popular show on television. The epic fantasy tale of feuding families has become a major hit for HBO, but the show was almost never made in the first place, for a whole list of logical reasons — it was too violent, creator George R.R. Martin kept saying no, and it was damn expensive to even think about producing.

Thankfully, all those hurdles were somehow navigated so we could chill on our couches on Sunday nights and argue over who should sit on the Iron Throne.
