    I'm reasonably intelligent, like Howard said he is.

    I've watched every episode of Game of Thrones, and with each episode I've read the Wikipedia recap, as well as 2 other recaps.

    Yet when I when watch each episode, I only comprehend about 65% of what's going on.

    I'm confused as a motherfucker. Every episode.

    I'm not bored, but it's like so hard to follow.

    Anybody else feel this way?

    Seems pretty easy to follow to me. I'm bad with remembering some names of the newer charscters, but the plot is easy to follow from week to week.

    I've heard many people say it's confusing...even back in Season 1. Weird. I just don't see how.

    I should probably say I understand about 80% of it, not 65%.

    It's just that every week, the show throws several things at me that leave me baffled.

    Well, at least we got to see that redheaded chick naked.

    I think Howard zones out during the dialogue.

    There is a lot thrown at the viewer 60 minutes. I usually watch it at least twice, so I can understand any dialogue I might miss. I did read all the books and know the characters fairly well but a series is always a little different than the books

    --The young teenage guys who were murdered. Who the fuck were they?

    --I sort of know what happened with the Arya thing, but I don't know.

    --I really didn't understand Jaime Lannister's speech. I sort of do now that Jon hein explained it. But I'm not totally sure.

    There's some more stuff. But those are more about keeping all the characters straight. I've gotta get a better handle on that.

    The teenage boys were Lannister hostages, murdered in retaliation for losses on the Stark/Karstark side.

    Howard has been dumbed down by Beth...he's spent the last three years or so watching such high brow entertainment like Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, The Bachelor and Fox News that he's having trouble comprehending things like a plot and characters.

    He is telling his side of the story of why he killed the king. I dont see what would be confusing there.
