That progress proceeds in fits and starts, but the fact is, in many ways, “Game of Thrones” has increasingly displayed feminist tendencies. Its gender dynamics are still occasionally problematic, no doubt, but it has come a long way from the “sexposition” follies of the first season. At this stage, “Game of Thrones” features a host of female characters who have agency, complexity and are portrayed in nuanced, unpredictable and resonant ways. The core female characters of “Game of Thrones” are not cardboard “strong women” they are human beings who make mistakes, feel pain, display intelligence and wit and have agendas and relationships that they care about and fight for. Brienne, Arya, Daenerys, Sansa, Ygritte, Shae, Margaery, Olenna, and yes, also Cersei: These disparate women occupy a lot of the show’s real estate, and their stories are often about the oppression, dismissal and marginalization they battle with every tool at their disposal. Does that mean the rape of Cersei was the right storytelling choice? Maybe, maybe not. But on some shows, the sexual assaults of women and girls are merely side notes to male driven narratives. Again, it’s not perfect, but “Game of Thrones” has demonstrated a willingness to give the stories of its female characters prominence, complexity and importance. Going forward, I hope it accords Cersei the same respect. Of course, these aren’t the reasons why MTV and Viacom executives decided to air “Buckwild.” The program never shows this reality. What the program does show are the ways in which Appalachian folk are superficially different than sophisticated urbanites: Appalachian people talk differently, have different hairstyles, live in different kinds of homes, and drink and eat different stuff. They ride in excavator shovels and make swimming pools out of dump trucks, as we saw in the series’ debut.
