I know there are arguments for "Game Of Thrones" not really being that awful in terms of feminism. (I don't think they hold water, but that's for you to decide. I couldn't finish the first book for its glossy depictions of child rape, but knock yourselves out.) Irregardless of your feelings about "Thrones" it is very much not a progressive show with its depiction of Nobel Savages and the complete absenting of any non-Noble character's opinion on the events. Which, sure, maybe isn't what it's there for, but like all High Fantasy genre pieces without those perspectives it falls into the same conservative spin.

I just finished the much lesser known "World Without End" however, and yeah. That is what "Game Of Thrones" would look like if it had half a progressive bone in its body. By the eighth episode, it's clear we're dealing in much far-removed from reality historical fiction, however...

Has anyone else watched this? Is there a tiny but awesome fanbase I could join?
