Favorite HBO geek show: 'Game of Thrones' or 'Westworld'?

"Game of Thrones" and "Westworld" are HBO's most beloved series with strong geek followings. Both series have become part of the zeitgeist thanks to critical acclaim and high ratings. Fans were lit for the season two premiere of "Westworld" in earlier 2018, after waiting patiently since late 2016. But Thronies are arguably the more established and mobilized fandom of "GoT." They are anxiously awaiting the show's return in 2019 and for the prequel spinoff. Which is the ultimate HBO geek series? 🐉🌵📺

Here's the synopsis of "Game of Thrones," per IMDb:

Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros; A forgotten race returns after being dormant for thousands of years.

If you have never seen "Game of Thrones," or fell off during an earlier season, then you are basically an outsider. AN OUTSIDER! Everyone is always talking about the show—even after 67 episodes. The final season premieres April 2019.

No spoilers, but in season seven, the Iron Thorne came down to Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow. So again, the show has only become more ruthless. While the upcoming season is the last, there's also a prequel in the works.

But in the meantime, let's check out what makes this show great—the many characters who have met their doom because of the Iron Thorne and the harsh, medieval-like setting. Here are WatchMojo's top 10 deaths on "GoT" below.

Below is the synopsis of "Westworld," per IMDb.

Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, explore a world in which every human appetite can be indulged without consequence.

The success of "Westworld" grew throughout its first season in 2016, and fandom has uplifted the geek series to the same level of "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones."

We won't spoil anything for you, but "Westworld" is based on the 1973 movie of the same name. The show is a western, but with a twist—artificial beings inhabit an Old West theme park. High-paying guests, or "newcomers," are allowed to do whatever they want within the park, without any consequences.

After two seasons, the series currently holds a fresh rating of 87 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Unfortunately, season three won't be coming until 2020. Fans will have to patiently wait. In the meantime, check out WatchMojo's list of the season one's best moments below.
