FINALLY WATCHING GAME OF THRONES

Last week I decided to start Game of Thrones. I just finished season 5 so please excuse me from society while I mourn for a few days. I have no idea if I like this show.
  1. Was this show inspired by Hieronymus Bosch's Hell?
    The world of Game of Thrones is definitely some level of hell.
  2. They are going to run out of characters eventually???
    Surely characters are dying at a faster rate than new ones are introduced...
