|Why am I related to the Lannisters? They are all assholes. Man, I'm hot with this wicked scar and brooding look.|
It's exam week so I'm sort of overly productive (read: procrastinating) and also I feel
like I need to just write this down, just to get it out of my system. OH MY
GOD! AWESOME and also ANTI-CLIMAX. I recently watched the last Game of Thrones
episode, because that is what I do. I love Game of Thrones, possibly more than
I should. I went to the Game of Thrones expo in Amsterdam, it was awesome, I
sat on an Iron Throne, I’m the queen of Westeros. I discovered that most of the
actors are a lot shorter than I thought they were, which is fun. Like
seriously. Tyrion’s costume didn’t look so short next to Cercei and Jamie’s
costume, what? I have thought for a long time about which is my favourite
character. A LONG time. I have made lists, I have debated, with myself mainly.
I have read the books, the first one twice, because the first season was coming
out and I wanted to reread it. I am seriously worried what will happen if
George R.R. Martin dies. I’m a Wheel of Time fan and I’m worried I can’t deal
with that again (Robert Jordan died before finishing, and another author
finished the series). These are the things I think about. I had a dream about
meeting Peter Dinklage where I told him he was a fantastic Tyrion. So at least
if I for some reason meet him, I’ll know what to say.
rambling is over, maybe. Maybe I’ll try to write a constructive and sensible
post. I just finished watching the third season of Game of Thrones, and I won’t
reveal much, I just feel like there should be more action. I think there was
plenty of action, Arya got to be all creepy, Yara (never realized that name was
an anagram of Arya until now, I’m an idiot) showed me how awesome she is, and
why I like her. She is her own woman, she’s badass and she goes off to save her
little brother, pissing off her dad.
That's not creepy at all
The scenes between Theon and Ramsay are
amazing, I think Iwan Rheon was a very good choice. Alfie Allen is doing a
really good job, I think. I really like him as Theon and I think he’s playing
Theon’s suffering very well. I’m excited to see how he plays Theon as Reek.
Landing Tyrion and Sansa have a seriously sweet and wonderful moment.
Very sweet moment between Sansa and Tyrion
that they could be a good couple if it hadn’t been for his family pretty much
eradicating her family. I had kind of hoped that they would end the season on
Joffrey’s wedding, but they need to work up to it more I think, since there are
things that need to happen to make the story hang together. That’s a good
sentence, trying not to spoil stuff. There is a fantastic Joffrey-Tywin moment, I fucking love Charles
Dance. He’s a genius.
Oh yeah, I'm the man. I am the real king, all y'all can fuck off.
liked Jon and Ygritte’ part. Also the whole Meera-Jojen-Bran-stuff is awesome.
I love Meera and Jojen. Bran kind of freaks me out, not only on TV, Bran in the
books is also kind of scary.
quite like that they use Gendry instead of Edric Storm as the sacrifice in
Stannis’ storyline. I think the reason is that it’s probably easier for the
audience to relate to someone they know rather than just popping someone new in
and telling people why they should care about him, a lot like when they changed
Robb’s wife from the book. I also quite like Gendry, and I like seeing more of
him, so I kind of hope we get to see more of him, even if it isn’t necessarily
Who can't love this guy? He's so cute and naive.
else I’ve been thinking about is Daario Naharis. I don’t know why, but I
imagined he was black, I have no idea why. I don’t think he’s described as
black. But I was also expecting him to be flamboyant and exciting, blue hair
and golden mustachios. He doesn't look that flamboyant, does he? I was sort of expecting a peacock when I read the book. Close enough.
Fuck you guys, I'm awesome, might not look like Daario Naharis, still awesome.
And also, isn’t Dany supposed to know about Jorah
Mormont by now? Or am I wrong? I feel like she should know by now. I might be completely wrong. They've switched the storyline too much, I'm confused.
characters from books/TV show (in no particular order)
(same person, but she has a different name in the TV show so audience wouldn’t
confuse her with Osha the wildling. There's a fact no one cares about. Stop rambling.)
- Ned (I
miss him, and if you didn’t know he was dead I’m sorry, but the book has been
around since 1996 and he was killed in the first season of the show. He's Sean Bean, he's either dead or evil.)
things about the TV show:
don’t shy away from things, like blood and gore, they’re surprisingly honest, I love that
- They are
very true to the books, at least in the beginning
Hivju is in it, and he is surprisingly good
Dinklage (he makes everything better)
- I don’t
know why, but I really love Shae, I think she’s better on TV than in the books
Gleeson who plays Joffrey is amazing, most of the Lannisters are generally very
good, but Gleeson is cool, he is very good at being a psychopathic child
Dormer is making Margery a lot cooler. She is a smarter and more insidious
person than she lets on, I like it.
sort of don’t like:
of the time, some of the time I love him
from the books I’m looking forward to seeing:
- The Sand
- This is
going to make me sound like a crazy person, but Joffrey’s wedding
becoming even more awesome
Baelish coming back
regular blogpost, but I just really wanted to write about Game of Thrones.
|I love her so much, she's awesome guys. |
