It was kind of hard to become emotionally invested in such an unfamiliar conflict, and the production was not quite as good as GoT, but I liked how it focused on how conflicts affects individuals and families as well as larger groups and nations; it's definitely epic in that regard."

      "I am looking for a show similar to Game of Thrones. While The Shannara Chronicles is a very good show I don't think that it is like Game of Thrones."

      "You know that it's garbage because it's made by MTV. They clearly just wanted to capitalize on the popularity of Game of Thrones."

      "This would be a good alternative because it has fantasy themes and takes place a long time ago."

      "The Handmaidens Tale is an excellent show that has nothing to do with Game of Thrones at all - or does it? If you really want to see a world come to life, the Handmaidens tale is an absolute thrill to watch unfold. A stellar period political drama, the GoT parallel becomes clear in the rich characters. In a dystopian society where women are enslaved and every scene looks like it was painstakingly painted by a renaissance master this show will definitely fill your GoT void for a while."

      "Game of Thrones is finished, and while there is a long wait before the next season . Worry not, all your drama and power battles in the court of politics and wealth in the handmaid's tale."

      "The Handmaid's Tail is really a good show but it has nothing to do with Game of Thrones. It is just a good example of a drama and science fiction tv series."

      "As an alternative to the Game of Thrones, The Handmaids Tale's plot is a bit watered down and benign. Not even close to the hard edge of the latter."
