“C’ will be a Syfy action-adventure one-hour episodic that delves into the past and technological advances that the future holds. The Syfy drama “Westworld” explores the creation theory from a scientific point of view, in an “Us or Them” mathematical equation, which allows it room to explore various life events through a game. It is at its best when one or more of the characters recognize that their own existence traps them. Setting off a dangerous illusion. As well, the hit television series Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels. It follows a dynastic conflict among competing Clans for succession to the Iron Throne. We perceive it as a sort of medieval realism. The story feels more like historical fiction than contemporary fantasy, with less emphasis on magic and sorcery and more on battles, political intrigue, and the characters. Believing that magic should be used moderately in the epic fantasy genre, Game of Thrones becomes extremely intriguing when the questions of redemption and character change the outcome, allowing the audience to view distinct characters from their perspective.
