Sooooo…because sometimes when people are talking about something and I see it around a lot…I often want to know what the hell are people going on and on about. This is how I got into LOST and Merlin. Now, this is how I’m getting into Game of Thrones. I’ve watched through episode 6. No, I haven’t read Song of Ice and Fire on which the series is based and I’m not sure if I will. Although…IDK, maybe. If I get wayyyy too impatient or something about what is happening next.
So far characters I like:
Ned Stark. He’s just a good guy all around, I guess. Robert isn’t REALLY a bad guy or anything but he’s too much of a doofus and likes “killing things” a little too much for my taste.
Tyrion. The Imp is just a likeable dude, I can’t help it.
Bran Start. Just because it’s impossible to not like such an adorable child.
Jaime. Yea, I KNOW <_< It’s really bad too, because it’s like…he’s got the whole cute thing going for him as well. Yea, IDK, I can’t help it, he’s just not enough of a cunt, he’s got that whole “grey area” thing going for him…
Arya is likeable, as is Jon Snow. But I don’t really have the fondness for them as I do for the above characters. Or, I guess in Jamie’s case, not the same level of interest/attraction? Daenerys is cool I guess, much more likeable that her hysterical brother. Does anyone know the name of the slave girl who taught her about sex? *cough*femslashvibes*cough* I must mention Jorah here too. He so totally has a thing for Daenerys.
I’ve spoiled myself up through the end of season 1, mostly while trying to figure out all the characters and how they were interconnected and using the wiki version of sparknotes for this purpose :p However, I don’t know what happens after this and I don’t think I want to know, especially since I’m taking GoT separately, as a fandom, separate from A Song of Ice and Fire. I know the show follows the book very closely, or so I’ve heard, but still. It’s just better this way, and stifles my impatience a little.
The only thing that bothers me about the show is the amount of gore. I don’t know if it’s enough to warrant an R rating per se, but I don’t like it. I have to look away and/ot turn off the sound from time to time. It’s not enough to turn me off the show though :)
ETA: Doreah, that's the slave girl's name :)
