I caved. I'm watching Game of Thrones.
|Chose this pic of Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel) for obvious reasons.|
I've just started Season 5 this evening and I must say...I still don't get the hype. Maybe in the first couple of seasons, sure...but once they started offing Starks and direwolves left and right, I rolled my eyes. I mean, hello. The Wolves were why folks are watching the friggin' show!!! You can think we actually give dambs about the Lannisters (aside for Tyrion)? We do not give dambs!
Missandei and Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson) are refreshing at times, but come on...why can't white folks write their fantasies with swords and sorcery and either leave brown-skinned folks out of it, or put us in awesome highborn positions? Because servants, slaves, ex-slaves, soldiers, pirates, and that asshole from Qarth are just not doing it for me.
What do y'all think?
