It’s wincest, you know.
I get it that Luke and the Princess are brother and sister but who is the guy in the bottom picture?
I’ve specifically been avoiding Game of Thrones in case it overtook Lord of the Rings in my personal number one spot. I’m assuming it’s having a similar effect vis a vis Star Wars?
GW – not to worry. I’m betting against a 50-year run for Thrones.
Nuclear war has been prevented.
And John Kerry (probably) didn’t have anything to do with it.
@joe – “I get it that Luke and the Princess are brother and sister but who is the guy in the bottom picture?”
that’s ser jamie lannister from game of thrones (see tags to post) who…
…has been having a long-term affair with his sister, cersei, the (now dead) king’s wife, with whom he’s had three children. oops!
@g.w. – “I’ve specifically been avoiding Game of Thrones in case it overtook Lord of the Rings in my personal number one spot.”
oh, you should really watch it/read the books! the series is excellent! fiiiiiiiiinally something (not very politically correct at all) to watch on the television apparatus. (^_^)
i liked the LoTR movies a lot (got the box-set here) — great productions — but i could never really get into the books. too much magic and … odd … creatures. (mabye i should give them another shot.)
the A Song of Ice and Fire books and GoT are different. it’s more like reading some books/watching a series about medieval england where every now and again some dragons pop up or some scary creatures from beyond the wall in the north (and, no, believe it or not, they’re not scots! (~_^) ). sure there’s a woman who’s a knight, but she’s an exception to the rule in that she’s a big, amazon of a woman (played by gwendoline christie who is herself an exception to the rule), so it’s believable. that’s a plus, too.
and, you know, it’s extended families vs. extended families (“the house stark” vs. “the house lannister”) — a kinda war of the roses thing — so that makes it interesting, as well. (clannishness!)
and then there’s the incest.
can’t fault any of the actors, either — so, all in all, highly recommended! (^_^)
@g.w. – “I’m assuming it’s having a similar effect vis a vis Star Wars?”
no, no. GoT will never replace SW for me ’cause there are no droids or lightsabers or millennium falcon in GoT … and it’s not in space. (~_^) plus, i saw SW at an impressionable age … i doubt anything could ever replace it.
“plus, i saw SW at an impressionable age”
ah yes, good point. hmm as i’m the same vis a vis LotR perhaps it’s safe to watch after all even if so many people who’s opinions i trust gush over it

i forgot to mention all the unclothed ladies. there are a lot of unclothed ladies in the tv series (and a few in the books, too). a LOT of ’em! i dunno … maybe, perhaps, possibly you might enjoy them as well … a little bit anyway. (~_^)
“i forgot to mention all the unclothed ladies”
they never mentioned that bit
not that something that shallow would affect my decision of course :p
(goes to check tv schedule)
