Game of Thrones is HBO's latest offering to the gods of good television and they better be happy. Someone over here (hint: me) is pretty slutty for medieval times so when I caught wind that George R.R. Martin's highly popular fantasy series, A Song of Fire and Ice, was being made into a show my panties dropped faster than a drunken prom date. But, being disappointed is something I'm used to (I could summon another prom based metaphor) so I didn't want to get my hopes up. I've been in an abusive relationship with Showtime's handjob of a show, Camelot, for something like 4 episodes. Game of Thrones was the show that was going to rescue me from my dreary life, take me out to dinner, tell me I'm pretty, and make gentle love to me by a fire. I can gladly say that while our relationship is only 1 episode deep, and I don't wanna jinx anything, things are looking good.

I won't bother to get all detaily about the thing but Sean Bean plays the main character Ned Stark, there are at least 3 beheadings in the first 20 minutes, and the medieval babe scene is thick. If you made an animated gif of a beheading by sword, horse riding, boobs, and castles I would declare it a piece of art. This is like that gif but for over an hour. It's also a well written, well cast, beautifully shot, and really engaging show. Sundays on HBO. They should send me a check.
