Funny clips but still never seen a episode. All my friends freak out about it but it just sounds like a LOTR soap opera... I got my fantasy boner out of me when I saw all the LOTR movies and Harry Potter films growing up, I don't need to see some lame HBO show about it.
Just my opinion, please don't hurt me, I did say I enjoyed the bloopers!
Not all that similar to Lord of the Rings to me. A lot less fantasy, more political scheming and tons more tits and ass.
I see it as a successful attempt to cynically combine all the genre elements young men and women crave...
1. Tits and ass
2. Medieval romantic shit, love, and flowing costumes and pagentry
3. Medieval war shit, suits of armor, swords, etc.
4. Graphic Violence
5. Intrigue and backstabbing
6. Magicky shit
7. Flowery yet pompous dialogue like out of a vampire movie or a civil war era political speech.
8. Women in roles displaying strength and cunning.
9. And everybody's favorites, dwarfs.
10. Tits and ass.
Are you one of Howard's new little fans? Is this the AGT influx?
your paranoid buddy
No, you just must be young if you saw Harry Potter and LOTR growing up. Back in my day there was only the animated The Hobbit that they played once a year on network tv that I watched on the giant wood console television that had dials and no remote control.
We watched that in high school after reading the Hobbit.
So your arguing with me because you are mad I'm in the prime years of living? Now I just feel embarrassed for you.
I also don't understand why you care how I'm a fan or why you think I care how you use to watch Television out of a wooden box...
Yup, it's more Godfather than LOTR. I never had any interest in fantasy stuff...I've only seen the first LOTR movie and never cared to see the others. GoT is it's own thing entirely.
In the whole first season of GoT, there was really only two scenes that even had any high fantasy elements in them. The opening scene with the Wight Walkers and when Dany's eggs hatch at the very end. It was mostly a murder mystery turned rebellion.
