The Boyf and I have just finished watching the excellent ‘Game of Thrones’
At first I didn’t think I would be able to get into it as it so many characters, names and locations – not to mention speeches like this….
“In the name of Robert of the House Baratheon, the First of his Name, King of the Andals and the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lord of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, by the word of Eddard of the House of Stark, Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North, I do sentence you to die”
Phew! Thank goodness they had the excellent Sean Bean as Eddard and that he can make guff like this sound cool.
Mind you, all the best lines are given to the incomparable Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister –
Not an enormous amount of eye candy for the Boyf and I sadly except, perhaps, for
Jaime Lannister. However, since he seems to be getting it off with his sister, he is a little offputting.
But he is sure pretty!
Not sure who the Boyf fancies in it but here are some choices –
But I suspect it is Drogo –
The strong silent type – just like me really!
Now that the first season is over and it will probably be the best part of a year before the next, I am gonna have to give in and read the books!
