    Will this new series take the place of “Game of Thrones” at the various awards?

    I mean, I’ll have to see it first, but as of now I would say absolutely not. I think it’ll be The Leftovers 2.0, just bigger. It just isn’t Game of Thrones; I can’t properly explain why though, lol.

    Succession is HBO’s next Game of Thrones.

    No way. I mean, there isn’t going to be a next game of thrones for a while but if you’re just talking about most popular HBO drama it’s far behind Succession and Westworld. Watchmen won’t be very mainstream.

    Watchmen is definitely gonna be more popular for the general audience than Succession. It might generate tons of buzz from critics and the industry, its ratings are still abyssal.

    I see it closer to Westworld. And with the chance of being a limited series, I don’t see the comparisons with Game of Thrones.

    No show is going to be the new Game of Thrones if the network’s intention is like that.

    Damon Lindelof has also said he wrote it as a single season of television, so there are no guarantees it will go beyond what we’re about to see.

    If you’re looking for a new GOT, look at one of the many new fantasy shows coming up, like His Dark Materials on HBO, LOTR, The Wheel of Time, or The Dark Tower on Amazon, or The Witcher on Netflix (and probably a few others that I can’t remember right now).

    No it’s not. I love the show but it will never have mass appeal, and if it tries to get it, it will be to the detriment of the quality of the writing.

    I think Watchmen has the potential to take off in a Westworld type of way.

    I think it’s pointless to look for the “next GoT” since it probably won’t happen anytime soon
