Some viewers generally complain that 'GoT' is indistinguishable from porn.
Even leaving aside hateful and homophobic comments, there's a specific and persistent undercurrent of insecurity around portrayals of sexuality in the complaints. Granted, Game of Thrones makes ample use of gratuitous nudity. Invariably, these complainers believe the FCC should play a role in policing it.
"As the FCC has softened it's stance on profanity the various outlets are inundating the viewers with more, and becoming more vulgar and more risqué," a viewer from American Canyon, California complained. "Game of Thrones appears more like porn as both men and women are shown totally naked and appearing to be having sex -- all exposed."
"Please try harder to protect our young ones from unnecessary exposure in television, music, and the internet," that same individual wrote. "I believe it is your job to manage the content which has seemed to have created a free for all." Pretty sure that when Franklin Roosevelt signed the Communications Act of 1934, which created the FCC, no one said, "Finally, someone will manage the content!"
Some folks, on the other hand, want to watch Game of Thrones in all its horny glory. They just keep getting jammed up by lousy glitches in content filtering systems. One person complained that the system Frontier Communications uses to filter content kept misclassifying Thrones as porn.
"Their filtering content doesn't make any sort of differentiation between hardcore pornography and TV-MA," the Frontier customer from Fort Worth, Texas complained. "So the paying viewer is suddenly confronted with their HBO being almost entirely blocked, because the filter doesn't see an difference between Game of Thrones and porn, between Late Night with John Oliver and porn.... The networks on my guide I have issue with are called Brazzers, Playboy, RKTV, and Arouse."
All this sustained pearl clutching over a premium cable channel's fantasy show about dragons, ice zombies, medieval deep state conspiracies, and incest is something else.
