Game of Thrones returns for its seventh season this Sunday on HBO. The show has developed quite the cult following over the years, and it's even inspired university classes.
Robert Rouse is a professor at the University of British Columbia and he teaches a course called "Our Modern Medieval: The Song of Ice and Fire as contemporary Medievalism."
Rouse argues the show is a huge success because it's really about our lives today. Today, Rouse gives us the reasons why he thinks that.
