I instantly fell in love with Game of Thrones. It's definitely not safe for children, but great if you've got a night without them to relax and watch some television. Tyrion Lannister is perhaps my favorite, next to John Snow and Brienne of Tarth. This is such a fantastic show, and the story has such depth that I can never watch one episode at a time. Good thing this series isn't real, and the world wasn't created by George R. R. Martin. He would kill off just about everyone worth keeping in the first 5 minutes.

We finally got season 3 from the library. DH is now fully into the story, thank in part to the "bubbies" I'm sure, but also to Peter Dinklage and Tyrion's character. He had heard about the "die-off" in season 4, but was unprepared for season 3 and I had a hard time keeping mum. My palms were sweating and my heart pounding as I waited for the inevitable in episode 9 of season 3. Hard to keep quiet. Of course, dh was almost totally surprised. I got up from the couch at the conclusion of that episode and my knees were knocking. I was totally taken off guard in the books, and seeing it on the screen cemented the fabulous angst I felt about the events.

Speaking of killing of all the characters, with the books I'm left hanging and hanging and hanging at the end of book 5, and "no, not that character too" and I concoct all the reasons why not, but I did that with all the previous beloved characters and all my wishing and whining couldn't bring them back to life. This time I think I'm right, but.......

Yeah, never get attached to anyone in this series!

I joked with DH and said that you just cannot relax while watching this show (after that awful fight scene with Prince Oberyn, I was so disturbed!) Every episode is so intense, but the show is awesome for that very reason.
