Forget about Team Edward vs Team Jacob. It’s all about House Stark and their Direwolf sigil. Winter is coming!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you have to get with the program! Or read the books.
Game of Thrones, baby. Game of Thrones! It is just the most fabulous series and I am all over it like white on rice. I’ve read the books, George R R Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” and I’m loving the TV series too.
It is one of the only book adaptations where the TV series follows the books quite closely. Unlike, say, True Blood, which has kind of lost the plot. Loving the books but the series? Not so much. Alexander Skarsgard and Anna Paquin are the only reason I’m still watching.
Game of Thrones has knights, castles, poor villeins, evil villains, battling Houses, lots of skin, boobs, sexy sex scenes, Sean Bean in boiled leather, nubile youths, calculating queens, horse lords, dragons and this dude
Tyrion Lannister, the Imp, Hand of the King, the best damned character on screen or in print. Superbly played by Peter Dinklage, who won the Golden Globe for his performance this year, he lights up the screen and steals every single scene.
If you’re not already a huge Game of Thrones fan – you need to be! Get on it. Stat!
