      Future video: I'm curious to know which houses have multiple branches. Like how the Starks have Karstark, and Graystark

      Too bad you didn't do korean fantasy drama Kingdom (a.k.a. Zombie Kingdom) it is interesting and there are plenty of theories about how things work there.
      It is basically Game of Thrones with the zombies actually making a difference.

      Not sure if you'd be willing to do anime, but Attack on Titan is an extraordinary show. The level of story & world building is on par or better than A Song of Ice & Fire imo.

      I believe they writers got lost a bit in it themselves... they went too far...
      So I doubt it will be very fascinating, but could be who knows

    Hard to think of a series more deserving of good explanation videos like yours than Dark

  • pedropereir

    A video about Dark would be amazing.
    Also looking forward to how the Foundation adaptation turns out.

    I want dark explanation videos cuz your style of telling with pictures and dialogue or the lines is formal. I would like to see this kind of video. Happy Christmas and I wish you all the best💓💓

  • hollandscottthomas
    hollandscottthomas Year ago +57

    There’s a lot to mine from comparing The Expanse series to the books, because the adaptation really really excellent.
    And you could spend months tracing the plot threads and character arcs in Dark. That show is fkn fantastic.

  • István Nyitrai

    Dark would be nice to be covered!

  • Niccolò Medeot

  • Ra Ha

    Please do Dark (Netflix). There’s so much quality and complexity!!!!

    • Ra Ha
      Ra Ha Year ago +1

      @wabbasMEpern Well, that’s funny since most of the people, who don’t understand the show are doubting the complexity ;)

    • wabbasMEpern

      It feigns complexity.

  • Shanice Dyer

    Also thank you for your videos this year!! Honestly the Game of Thrones videos and Westworld episode breakdowns got me through the lockdown/quarantine! 💜

  • ChesterTester
    ChesterTester Year ago +2

    These end of year videos always get me so hyped and excited for the future of this channel! It's a great list of books and shows to cover, I would also recommend the Cosmere books by Brandon Sanderson. Some of the greatest contemporary fantasy right now! But maybe you would want to wait until some of the stories hopefully get a movie/tv adaption?

    • Alt Shift X
      Alt Shift X  Year ago +2

      Thanks Spirus!
      Yeah ideally we'd wait til there's a TV/movie adaptation.

  • Pierre C

  • Shanice Dyer
    Shanice Dyer Year ago +209

    Omg His Dark Materials!! Literally only a handful of people make content about HDM on X-vid so would be super cool if you could do videos

    • Prospector Pete
      Prospector Pete Year ago

      @A - cat which service has HDM? I in Australia so we only have leftie streams

    • Kimberly Tennison
      Kimberly Tennison Year ago

      The second season was so good!

    • A - cat
      A - cat Year ago +5

      HDM is really layered with symbolism and I reckon the show is even better than the books. the last book (and next season of the show) is where stuff gets really trippy with weird birds mono roller skating on seeds loaded with dust oil magic or something (i read the books lonnnnng ago) and the plot lost me with the angels and world of the dead type thing so I’ve been desperate for a good analysis and there is NOTHING useful in YT about it. useless vids of “random stranger reacts to episode of hdm” uh the pandemic lockdowns haven’t been that lonely ok...
      Also there are other books where Lyra is older and that series is also not finished so it’s totally your vibe

    • Lys Monkey
      Lys Monkey Year ago

      It would be so wonderful if that happened. There are so many questions I have. Would love to know more!

    • Contractor815
      Contractor815 Year ago

      YES. I have loved this series since I was a kid. PLEEEEEASE cover it.

  • SmexyRula
    SmexyRula Year ago

    I personally REALLY loved your non-fiction video, your meticulous and detailed approach is both very effective at teaching but also very entertaining. Like if Vsauce didn't get distracted all the time

  • chai zaeng
    chai zaeng Year ago +1

    I know it isn't on your vote list, but I would love some wheel of time Videos from you guys. I love your video style and wheel of time would be a perfect series to cover

  • Noah Bowden
    Noah Bowden Year ago

    Honestly, your game of thrones videos are really entertaining and interesting and as a person who has only watched the show is mad to hear about all the lore and things not actually included. I even watched most of them multiple times for refreshers. Glad to hear that your still keeping them going. ;)

  • Brian Goodell
    Brian Goodell Year ago +2

    This is a perfect christmas gift, I'm so excited for more explaining!

  • Andrew Kawam
    Andrew Kawam Year ago

    I love your videos, especially the ones you did for Annihilation, Raised by Wolves, and Watchmen. I continue to find them really insightful and help me get so much more out if the things I love.
    I would say YES YES YES to His Dark Materials and Dune. Also, there's an adaptation of Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast coming up from Neil Gaiman and Toby Whithouse, and I feel like you guys would find that really interesting, especially since it's so undercovered on X-vid despite being such a classic.

  • Terry Manly
    Terry Manly Year ago

    Glad you really came up brother I remember when you were at only 100k, and you still produce the best analysis content I’ve seen on X-vid. Much love enjoy the holidays

  • KittenAtheDisco

    The Witcher would be an awesome series to see from you! I love all the GOT/ASOIF videos you have put out, by far my favorites from any creator. So glad I found your videos on Reddit many, many moons ago.

  • Rasmus Amund Henriksen

    I really like the way you present different subjects. looking forward to 2021. What about the Witcher, there could be a lot of material like - how to become a witcher - conjunction of the spheres - different kingdoms

  • shriekinmerc
    shriekinmerc Year ago

    I’m not going to get on patreon but I hope the nonfiction videos are a passion project for you that get made anyways. You have a handle on those topics in a way I haven’t seen since John Green’s crash courses, and I’d love to see you do more of them

    I think Amazon's Wheel of Time show would make some great theory videos, and there is _plenty_ of lore to explain as well.

  • Nicholas O'Leary

    Absolute yes to Foundation, Y: The Last Man, and American Gods (book please). Those teased ASoIaF videos also looked intriguinng. I'll try to knock out Dark and the Expanse before you make videos, but I watch them even if I haven't (just like with West World).

  • Joey Amorim
    Joey Amorim Year ago

    I think an interesting idea for a video would be examining Doomsday Clock. Maybe compare it to HBO’s Watchmen, and see how both stack up as a sequel to the original graphic novel.

    Have you heard of The Second Apocalypse by R. Scott Bakker? Very dark and twisted fantasy series but lots of depth to it and plenty of theory crafting can be done about it.

  • GimmeeSomeMo

  • Diana Bandicoot
    Diana Bandicoot Year ago

    You can cover each charcter from the books, their entire journey of their books.... you know, so we can keep up. I sometimes read the entire plot of each book so i dont forget bc the show differs. Anyways thanks for the uploads, looove you guys
