Game of Thrones
Fell down the wonderful world of Westeros and never got out. I swear the whole series (10 episodes of them) were all brilliantly and amazingly made it pains my heart everytime I finish watching an episode, and so much more when the season ended.
Lesson learned: Don't get too attached with any of the character/s, you might not forgive the author for killing them off hee (though I've found out that that's really his style).
My favorite characters in GoT:
Eddard Stark (Sean Bean). Yes, he seems to have steered in the general direction of kingly, honourable character. Not that it's bad.
"In the name of Robert of the house Baratheon, first of his name, king of the Andals and the first men, lord of the seven kingdoms and protector of the realm, I Eddard of the House Stark, Lord of Winterfell, and warden of the North, sentence you to die."
Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage). He delivers all the killer lines! What he lacks in height he makes up with wit, smart and too often, snarky remarks.
Jon Snow (Kit Harington). There's just something about Ned's bastard's eyes that haunts me. Those sad, sad eyes. Plus, I'll always root for the underdogs.
Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) Such a brave young girl so unlike her despicable sister. Strong character! I also like her relationship with her father, Ned. Too bad, huhu.
The direwolves. All of them, at least the remaining ones. They're fiercely loyal!
Now I'm off to read GoT, the first of the seven-book series A Song of Fire and Ice. Best of luck!
