Quick Thoughts: On Game of Thrones Season 1.

I was never really into the Game of Thrones hype, but recently a friend of mine finally convinced me to watch it, and while I wasn’t hooked, I have decided to finish the series. I have a few thoughts I’d like to throw out there about the first season, and there will be spoilers of course, honestly if you are reading this right now, and haven’t seen it… wtf bro? With that let’s get into the first round of quick thoughts.

Why can’t Sean Bean stay alive in something? I mean, c’mon! For fucks sake! He was like, the only person I gave a shit about in the whole show! To be fair as soon as I saw him on screen my first thought was “Ahh, so there will be a main character death early in the show.” For real Sean Bean is a great actor, but his mortality rate in films, and shows is terrible.

Next up is Jon Snow. The on again, off again Stark. I know where the show is going, I’m not blind to the posts about it on facebook, and spoilers, but can I just say Uuugh. For now I don’t like him, and I’m glad he’s stuck on the wall dealing with the real problems to come when winter also inevitably arrives. His wimpy friend Sam kicks ass though. I expect great things from them both in the future.

I feel like a lot of plotlines either won’t get picked back up again, or won’t happen until way later, and everybody is saying Winter is coming far too much, and I see now why it had such meme presence throughout the years. I’m not shocked seeing all these plots happening that it’s taken 7 seasons for people to get the kinda payoff they have been clamoring for since season 1. Oh, and the baby dragons at Aquaman’s death were adorable. I don’t know if there was much worth mentioning from me other than that stuff… So…

Some people I’m generally okay with

Tyrion Lannister
Robb Stark
Arya Stark
Daenerys Targaryen

People I wanna see dead.

FUCKING, NO GOOD, JOFFERY
Every Lannister that isn’t Tyrion
Sansa Stark
Catelyn Stark

After that I really don’t care what happens to anyone else. There were a lotta tiddys, and some brutal deaths, and that’s probably why so many people like it. All the fucking people, and fucking up people. As someone who is not very into the middle-earth, and Medieval themes normally, I actually kinda dig this. Ordinarily my limits span from Narnia, to Dungeons and dragons, and then nothing… I read The Hobbit once! This sort of thing isn’t in my wheelhouse, so I’m admittedly surprised that I plan on continuing onward with this show past season one. I’ll let ya know my thoughts once I get past season 2, until then, caio!
