I find I dislike it for the exact same reason. Every plot line just sprawls across a ton of episodes, and the overall pacing is absolutely glacial. I got partway into season 3 before eventually just giving up on continuing to watch it.

I acknowledge the value of Game of Thrones in terms of its art direction and impact on the medium much in the same way I acknowledge the same for 2001: A Space Odyssey. But I feel about Game of Thrones the same way I feel about 2001, which is that the same story could be told much more effectively and in about a quarter of the time if the show/movie didn't spend so much time up its own ass, self-fellating over how artistic it is.
