What you may need to know:
1. It’s the first season not based on George RR Martin’s books, so fans have no idea what will go down.
2. But Jon Snow (who knows nothing) is dead. Probably.
3. To be honest I could never get into Game of Thrones, so I have no idea what’s going on here.
4. I do know that it’s about Lannisters and Starks and dragons. And goblins, maybe?
5. And rape. Loads of rape. It’s not the sort of thing that the beardy pig-loving bloke off the Vodafone ad would stick on to woo his lady friend.
6. While I’m killing sacred cows… The Wire wasn’t all that either.
7. Broadsheet prognosis: Is it too late for a Leeroy Jenkins cameo?
Release Date: April 25 (Sky Atlantic).
Raises hand, and admits… The Wire passed me by also….. but GOT did not! :)
There isn’t that much rape tbh. At least in point 3 you let people know you don’t know what you’re talking about in 5.
Point 6 is just pure trolling.
A reviewer who doesn’t like /know Game of Thrones, worst I’ve heard since the Donegal TV AM TV reviewer who didn’t watch TV. I’m going to start reviewing restaurants from home reading Trip advisor if your looking for someone for restaurants.reviews
Don’t watch TV. Why are you advertising TV programs?
Totes hesitant about watching this lest it colour the new book (if that fat bastard gets around to finishing it before dying!!!!!!!!!!!one!!!ahaon!!)
SANSA FOR QUEEN OF THE NORTH!!!111!!!!1111!!!
Loved the wire ! did not love the ending !
Not sure we’ll see a Leeroy Jenkins cameo however :(
April 25th !?
I thought it was the 4th last year
‘The Wire wasn’t all that either’ You what??? Maybe it was just too slow moving, too detailed, too clever, too well-written, too layered, too complex and too black for you to handle.
Proper TV shows wrap up a story at the end of the episode. Like CSI.
First time I saw CSI Miami, I honestly thought it was a spoof of the vegas one. By the time the end credits rolled around (brought on by a dissolving montage of horatio and blondey criminalist on the beach, baywatch style), i wasn’t convcinced otherwise
The Wire is notoriously hard to get into (it took me about 4 episodes) and its not perfect by any means. But it is one of the best shows I’ve ever watched. It’s educational too. I’d recommend you give it a second go.
I’ve tried a few times, and, I have to say, really not my cup of tea. It is a well-made, well-written and well-acted series, but I couldn’t enjoy it. I don’t know why. The other half loves it.
That said, I don’t like Game of Thrones.
*awaits volley of abuse*
That was priceless. Poor Bertie Simpson.
And on the last hairy leg day too.
I’m a bad person.
Don’t say that, it just makes me want you more.
That’s the way I roll, though.
Don’t ever change! :)
Oh you ol’ charmer, you.
what do you have against aiden gillen?!
Didn’t like him one bit in The Wire. It was much later that I found out he was Irish.
His accent is a wee bit mad though, innit?
(I don’t hold that against him, mind.)
His Irish accent sounds about as convincing as Jonathan Rhys Meyers’.
They really are odd.
Let’s dispel with the fiction that HBO didn’t know what they were doing. They knew exactly what they were doing when they withhold the trailer for so long.
You are Marco Rubio and I claim my five dollars
I just love hearing GOTs rating because they are insane !!!! Abnormal for a tv show on a paid channel!
