Let's Chat: Game of Thrones

First off, if you haven't heard of Game of Thrones or have heard of Game of Thrones but haven't watched it, you oughta start.

  1. Because you probably have friends that are likely to let something slip and ruin it for you. Like a friend of mine. Spoiling a big part in season 1. Bastard.
  2. Because, in my unhumble opinion, it's the best show that's ever been on TV.

I absolutely swear by this show. Not once since the first season of Lost have I been so blown away by television.

"But Johnny, swords and dragons are stupid."

I agree. I'm not too keen on medieval fantasy. Hell it took me a year to actually sit down and watch the first season. Even after watching the first season, I was still kinda on the fence about it. But as the days went by, I gradually wanted to watch season 2 more and more. Suffice to say, season 2 did not disappoint whatsoever.

It's gotten to the point where I've picked up the books and started reading them. And by picked up the books, I mean, bought them, gave up reading the physical books and found a PDF of it online. I know that the TV show has changed a few things, but I'm treating the reads separate from the TV show.

This is a great show, but it does take a bit to wrap your head around all the characters. They tend to name drop left, right and center, even people that aren't even in the show yet. It's a lot to take in, but I have faith you. If I can deal with it, so can you. And I'm pretty slow.

I won't tell you what the show's about. I just want you to watch it so we can chat about it over dinner.

Now I'm gonna go eat something.


  1. Watch the show by all means. You might honestly be right in saying its the best show ever. For production quality surely.

    But do yourselves a favor and read the books aswell. As great as the show is, the books are better. For starters, you won't have to wait 6 years minimum (probably more) to know what happens!

  2. Best show on television. Everyone should watch it. I'm tempted to read ahead just to know for sure that a certain king dies a very painful horrible death.

    1. The king EVERYBODY loves to hate. God I hate him so much.
