So I could withstand the peer pressure of drinking and drugs in high school and college, but apparently TV shows are my weakness. In addition to watching Supernatural, I’m attempting to finish Game of Thrones before Mac comes home on leave. I’m getting the discs, so I’m at the mercy of the United States Postal Service. I decided to blog my thoughts whilst watching Game of Thrones episode 1.
**Spoilers ahead (she said three years after the show debuted).**
Hmm, where is Sean Bean?
Is that Dax Shepard?
These people started off dead. Impressive.
So no back story on what’s going on here?
Another dead person. George R. R. Martin is quick.
Glad I decided to not drink every time someone dies. I would be drunk 5 minutes in.
I just blanked on how to spell minutes. I keep typing minuets.
But really, Sean Bean time.
Yay, Sean Bean!!
Thanks to Pinterest, these people already look familiar.
Bran, like Raisin Bran. Or perhaps Brandon.
Blue eyed mom. Blue eyed dad. Brown eyed kids. Way to go, casting directors.
Oooh, another dead person.
Walkers. So zombies? No?
Eddard. A bit of an underwhelming first name.
Should we include dead animals in the drinking game? If so, fare thee well, liver.
I’m sensing wolves are important.
Yes, I would like to hold that baby wolf.
No, you can’t kill the baby wolves, Cruella.
So Snow is the bastard?
I’ve heard this brother and sister pair have been shacking up. They seem to be twins. That’s really weird.
Who is Jon Galt Arryn?
So the wife is related to the sibling-lovers?
Midget joke. Everybody drink.
Brandon. I was right.
Emphasis on climbing. I’m sensing foreshadowing. Place your bets on Bran falling to his death now.
The fact that I know that most of these characters die (thanks, Interwebs) really takes some wind out of the sails.
Glad to see Mark Addy has progressed from a knight’s squire to king.
Ew. They are twins.
So Jamie looks like a real life version of Prince Charming from Shrek.
Midget drinking. Everybody drink.
The blonde people look like the elves from The Lord of the Rings.
Hmm, people living across the narrow sea hoping to reclaim a throne. This reads like a history of the Wars of the Roses.
Brother touching sister’s boobs. George R. R. Martin is a freak.
How much eyeliner is Jason Momoa wearing? He looks like Ru Paul.
Nothing like telling your sister you’d pimp her out to her fiancé’s army horses to show your love.
What is this wall nonsense? Like Hadrian’s wall? The Great Wall of China? Pink Floyd’s The Wall?
Do they mean winter like the season or winter like a time of death and disaster?
So Cat and the Queen aren’t sisters?
Nobody’s died in like 20 minutes. Someone’s going down soon.
Winterfell = York. King’s Landing = London. How original.
So her sister is the dead guy’s widow. It’s coming together.
But really. I hope this makeup artist bought stock in whatever eyeliner she’s using on Jason.
Nothing like a battle to the death to spice up a wedding. Called it.
Hey, it’s Sir Richard. Glad to see he got a job after he got the boot from Downton.
Bran’s climbing. Episode 1 seems a bit early in the show to knock off a kid, but it’s now or never.
Nope, just a crash course in voyeurism.
Yep, called that one, too. And I didn’t even read the books!
