The author studies the global success TV series "Game of Thrones" from the point of view of the systemic theory and from the epistemology of complexity. In today’s show business the tendency is to not put a definite end to the story; this same tendency is being applied in cinematograpghy where the ending is often temporary and the movie is then transformed in a TV series prolonged overtime where the expectations are often neverending. This expressive procedure is adequate according to the author to express the sense of instability that we experience in today’s world.
