Game of ME

With the emphasis on ME!

I've been told, for too fucking long actually, by my buddy Slyde that I would love Game of Thrones. Or, actually, A Song of Fire and Ice. I think the name HBO chose for the series, which is the title of the first book, is actually a better name for the entire series. So I'm not upset that HBO made that decision. Anyway, I started reading the books a couple of months ago. I'm now on the last available book, and I'm a little pissed that I have to wait several years for the remaining two novels.


Last night, I convinced Gia to watch the first episode of the HBO series. Because I love it and I believed that she would also. She didn't disappoint. Or it didn't disappoint. Either way, she loved it. And I'm enjoying it even more the second time around.

We actually watched two episodes, and she is all in. Peter Dinklage is amazing, of course. But so is the rest of the cast. Now we are going to burn through the rest of Season 1 and then burn through Season 2 as soon as it becomes available thru streaming.

So I win again.

As usual. Hehehehehe!

Probably the best series i have ever read. I think i love every single character.

The show is great, but without knowing the whole story from the book, i think i'd be pretty fucking lost...

I bet you anything that women love that Peter Dinklage. He's amazing.

Slyde - There are a bunch of great characters.

Zibbs - He is amazing in everything.

I feel much the way you do... pissed that I have to wait for the next books. It seems like every time I get into a good fantasy series, the author goes and dies before finishing the damn story. If George R R Martin dies before he finishes this series, I'm going to dig him up and and stab him.

I like the books, but I just wish he would spend more time describing the clothes and the food. :)

Peter Dinklage? I'm not sure who he is but I'm holding back the urge to make penis jokes.

my bad.

Verdant Earl said...

Happy - Slyde is worried about the same thing. The dude dying before he finishes the series.

Paticus - OH MY GOD! I was just complaining about that. The books could be cut down by 25% if he relaxed with all the unnecessary exposition.

Candy - He's the small person actor. You've probably seen him before.

You're killing me, Earl!
Read the books, now I need to watch the frigging series.

Verdant Earl said...

Sybil - I've only seen the first season thus far, but it is very true to the first book.
