Currently, in season seven it still revolves around those stories, the first being the quest to claim the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms which births a web of conflict and unlikely alliances. The second focuses on the exiled last descendant of a ruling dynasty and her quest to reclaim her title. The third focuses on the brotherhood that defends the realm against the ancient threats of the people and creatures that lie in the north and the winter that threatens to kill them all.

Insecure

Another one from HBO is the very relatable comedy written by Issa Rae and played by Issa Rae. What are the challenges a black woman faces at a job filled with white people, in a relationship that doesn’t provide the spark and with the world bent on making it hard for her? If you can think of any of those challenges then probabilities are high that Rae has brought it to life on your TV screen. Currently, in the second season, we are in to watch Rae take on the challenge called life with pep talk moments in front of her mirror as well as watch the other characters handle the drama that envelopes their daily lives.
