The TV show, that is. I’ve not read the books, which is why I’ve been putting off watching the show for fourteen months. I always prefer to read the original before watching the adaptation, but I finally gave in.
And ohmygoditsawesome. Why?
Sean “Sharpe/Boromir/Trevelyan from Goldeneye/Pride of Sheffield” Bean is one of our (Britain’s) great actors. He’s the classic working man’s actor – no fuss, no airs, it’s just a job that he works hard at and is bloody good at too. From the first episode he seems a perfect fit as Lord Stark.
I hope Eddard doesn’t die somewhere down the line, but I’m aware of George R. R. R. R. R.’s predilection for offing his characters. Perhaps the ‘Save Sean Bean’ campaign can keep him alive:
I love this guy in everything he’s been in. I was so happy when he came on screen. Tyrion seems a great, complex character already:
“All dwarfs are bastards in their father’s eyes.”
Incest Surprisingly Meets Expectations
Because every article I’ve read about the series has mentioned it about twelve times, I was expecting kinky brother-sister action once every fifteen minutes… and that pretty much happened.
I predict it’ll only take about three more episodes before I start saying “Incest again? Really, George?”.
Any (spoiler-free, please) thoughts, readers? What do you love about GoT? What have I got to look forward to?
