00:00 Intro/ I don’t know what this video is.
01:19 Why are people watching this show?

02:45 Our Reptilian Brain
03:30 Is there a link between the extremes of violent fiction, and less violence in the real world?
04:50 Living vicariously through character development
05:35 Is Game Of Thrones an example of the “male gaze”?
06:20 A way to help criminals, or would this make it worse?

So I made this video, then realised it could offend people. I’m not doing it over. I was just thinking on the topic. Correct me if you think my opinions are too anecdotal.
