What if Game of Thrones were locally produced?

Game of Thrones Season 5

The HBO original series Game of Thrones season finale earned mixed reactions from viewers around the globe, most of them praising how brilliant the series is.

Last month, around 7.2 million people tuned in to the show’s live broadcast in the United States, while the season four premiere drew so many online viewers that the server of HBO’s mobile platform called HBOGO crashed. That’s how popular GoT is, and like all great television series, it left viewers clamoring for what comes next. 

It’s a sad truth that not in our lifetime a series like Game of Thrones would be produced by any local television network. Not even film outfits have the intention to create features similar to that of HBO original presentation.

But what if one of the major television networks decided to produce an epic series similar to Game of Thrones?

The series wouldn’t last for more than one season.

First, the show would prematurely go off air because the company that the network hired to do the computer graphics decided to pull out, basically due to limited budget. And since the producers are financially challenged, instead of a high fantasy series, they would tweak the plot and turn it into to rom-com with some hard drama twist at some point. Tyrion Lannister, the imp, is played by Dagul.

The routine slaughter of key characters, that viewers came to love, would be changed to numerous kidnapping scenes running for several episodes. They must stay alive because their presence is very needed for the finale, which is a wedding scene at the King’s Landing.

In this series, due to budget constraint and their inability to produce decent CGI, Daenerys Targaryen’s three dragons would be replaced by four “tikbalangs,” all played by Vice Ganda. And although it’s highly unlikely due geographical barriers, Daenerys would be revealed as the daughters of the twins Queen Cersei and Jaime. She was switched at birth with one of the chambermaids’ baby. Every detail would be well documented in a diary.

Finally, the network would say the series is winning the ratings game though the rival network says otherwise.
