No offense, but why the fuck do you keep watching it then? It's an HBO series, not a Tarkovsky flick; you're not really going to get something deeper or more meaningful out of it. If you don't like it, then quit watching. Unless, secretly, you do like it and you just enjoy being difficult...
Literature, art, and philosophy represent different forms of intelligence - forms that, in the end, can probably be traced back to a single practice: the focused contemplation of the starry sky that seeks out patterns in it.
