I've just finished watching season one of HBO's Game of Thrones ("The Sopranos in Middle Earth"), and I'm about to start on season two. I am completely, hopelessly, addicted. I don't care much for politicking but I love those crazy badass characters.
Bet you can't guess, out of a very large cast, who it was that I had the hots for!
Was it gruff, honourable, dooooooomed Ned Stark?
Was it pretty badboy Jaime Lannister?
Was it scheming Queen Cersei?
Nope (though I've learned to admire and sympathise with her. A bit).
Was it huge macho barbarian Khal Drogo?
Nope (although he's certainly not unpleasant on the eye).
Was it crazy dragon lady Daenerys Targaryen?
Nope (although she had the best character-arc ever in series one, from dishrag to psycho barbarian queen).
Could it be cuteypie virgin John Snow, then?
Who do I fancy? Well, it's actually divided between these two guys:
Yes. I fancy the Imp and the Ginger Outcast.
That is because I'm one of these
and both Tyrion Lannister and Jorah Mormont are smart. (And not (obviously) dicks ... though that remains to be seen.)
Anyway, there's already one episode of season two gone to air and waiting for me, which probably means everyone I fancy is already dead, because Game of Thrones is like that.
I can't wait!
