TV Dinners: Game of Thrones

So I realize that it may be off limits to many of you, but Game of Thrones is a show too good to be ignored. Plus, now that the first season is out on DVD even you non-HBO subscribers can go hog wild. (PS: if your parents get HBO at home, check out HBO Go, which has soothed many of my own Sex and the City cravings.)

This is a show full of intrigue, politics, dragons, and lots of gratuitous female nudity (so much, in fact, that even one of my [straight] male friends exclaimed that it was “too much…and I’m a GUY.”) This is a fantasy show for the fantasy uninitiated, and disinclined. This is a show with powerful women, terrifyingly empowered children, and enormous wolves. Everything, I tell you! It has everything!

So this weekend, as the second episode* approaches, gather your loved ones, preferably on a bear skin rug, and feast like King Robert.

    Game of Thrones is awesome, very true to the books. I love every minute of it. For those that haven’t read the books stick around it gets so much better, you’ll crap your pants halfway through season 3 but I’m not telling why :)

    The last dragon I fell in love with was Grendel. After him, no scaled mammoth could hold allure for me. But the lemon cake sounds great.
