Anyone can be killed

So, this is not the first time I have tried - and succeeded in some cases – to lure you into the Kingdoms of George R.R. Martin, but in celebration of season 2 (episode 3 comes out tomorrow) I thought I’d remind you about the best TV-series on TV right now. Based on the epic book series by GRRM, Game of Thrones is everything you can wish from a really great HBO series: war, sex, gritty realism, nakedness, death, crazy religious people, incest, blood, witty humor and just a hint of magic, all mixed together in a blend of beautiful  scenery, fantastic costumes and the best actors you can find out there.

Tyrion Lannister: Tell me, when your men slaughtered Ned Stark’s men at the throne room, did you give the orders?  
Janos Slynt: I did, and I would again. The man was a traitor. He tried to buy my loyalty.  
Tyrion: The fool. He had no idea you were already bought.  
Janos Slynt: Are you drunk? I won’t have my honor questioned by an imp!  
Tyrion: I’m not questioning your honor, Lord Janos. I’m denying its existence.  
[Janos jumps to his feet furiously]  
Janos Slynt: If you think I’ll stand here and take this from you, dwarf…  
Tyrion: “Dwarf”? You should have stopped at “imp”. And yes, you will stand here and take it from me, unless you like to take it from my friend here.  
[Gestures to Bronn]  
Tyrion: I intend to serve as Hand of the King until my father returns from the war. And seeing as you betrayed the last Hand of the King, well, I just wouldn’t feel safe with you lurking about. There’s a ship leaving for Eastwatch-by-the-Sea tonight. From there, I’m afraid it’s rather long walk to Castle Black. I hope you enjoy the Wall. I found it surprisingly beautiful… in a brutal, horribly uncomfortable sort of way.

This is the series were the bad guys win and your favorite characters are killed off one by one. And then the bad guys die. And the real bad guys step out from their scheming place in the dark. Season 1 was awesome, season 2 promises dragons, dead people coming back to life (but not in a good way), a mysterious star in the sky foretelling 2674 different prophecies and five kings fighting for the throne left by the late King Robert. Valar Morghulis.

Do you watch Game of Thrones?

    Game of Thrones, ah, love! I’m hoping to get a start at the book series soon though -even though I’ve heard that there is “no point” in reading the first book because of it’s accuracy in the series (but I don’t listen, a good book is a good book).

    Jeg er helt helt hekta! Klarte ikke å vente på sesong 2, så jeg begynte å lese bøkene, men nå må jeg jo vente på neste bok, og det tar så lang tid:)

    Verdens beste serie! Gleder meg sånn til episode 3 :D

    Såg sesong 1. Eg vart like irritert og sur etter kvar episode og lovte meg sjølv at eg ikkje kom til å sjå den meir. Det vart ein opptur då dragane vart klekt, men eg veit sanneleg ikkje om eg kan utsetje meg sjølv for så mykje irritasjon. Den skitungen av ein tenåringskonge gir meg fysisk smerte. Stakkars skodespelar, han ser jo faktisk ut som eit resultat av incest! Det er jo ein booster for sjølvtilliten!

    Elsker Game of Thrones, og Tyrion Lannister!

    ELSKER! spesielt det faktum at serien er alt annet enn skuffende etter å ha lest bøkene.. snakk om å få i pose og sekk :D

    Jeg har lest bøkene, og så de første to episodene. Jeg ble positivt overrasket (pleier å hate fra-bok-til-film/serie-adapsjoner intenst), men har ikke helt tålmodighet til å se mer, spesielt ikke nå som jeg har eksamener rett rundt hjørnet.

In 2004 I started to write down what books I read in order to keep track of them all. Since 2006 I have gathered them here instead of in my notebook and they serve as a reminder of how I should read more and compete to beat my old “record”. You can find the complete list here.
