The Rundown: Game Of Thrones - Season 1

The Rundown: Game Of Thrones - Season 1

I remember back in 2012, I read about this show called Game Of Thrones, so I decided to check it out. I got through about 3 episodes when I stopped keeping up with it, but not due to a lack of interest; it was a lack of time. I had started a new job and ended up working crazy hours, so when I got free time it went to other things. Years go by and I feel like I missed 11 seasons when there aren't even that many total, so I made a conscious decision to finally catch up recently.

This is basically my real time reactions and feelings on each character, in short, after finishing season 1.

Where do I begin? FUCK Joffrey seems like a great place, but I'll come back to that. Right off the back I can tell that Tyrion would be one of my favorite characters regardless of what side he's on. The way he absolutely shuts people down and gives them a gem at the end of the conversation is brilliant. Littlefinger is a well-dressed rat. He's like putting a tuxedo on an actual piece of feces. Cersei fine as shit, and is equally a terrible person, so I end up conflicted in my hatred toward her. She loves her kids that are also her nieces and nephews, but...uh…yea. Did I mention the part about fuck Joffrey? I was pleased to see Tyrion smack his eyebrows off a few times back-to-back. 

Jon Snow has the aura of the chosen one; he's another one of my favorites. He's a bastard, but the fact that he gets treated relatively 'good' tells me everyone else sees it too. Sansa has a face that I don't particularly trust or like, and she ends up proving me right in my assumption that she wasn't shit. Ned Stark was like an uncle to me and they got the OG beheaded on Joffrie's orders; FUCK Joffrey. It took everything I had not to shed a few tears seeing the Big Lord up there helpless. Bran is my little homie and I'm glad he got back right. Arya is so beautiful and has the heart of a lion. I love her.

My absolute favorite is Khaleesi, pardon me, THE Khaleesi. First of all she basically threw the sex on Khal Drogo and made him literate. Like how you meet someone who grunts and proceed to fuck literacy and poetry into him or her? Then she spent the night in fire with 3 eggs and woke up with dragons on her, unharmed. She's easily the greatest. One last thing, they need to stop letting this old man who says "treason" every other word keep saying that shit. He sounds like he's about to cough and die every time he says it.

In just a few episodes I was already on the verge of crying, sharpening a sword, and raising a wolf or 3. I'll keep you updated on my progress. Also, fuck Joffrey.
