Ep-79 Game of Thrones (2011 TV series) episodes 1-2

People all over the world are revisiting the early seasons of Game of Thrones before season 8 arrives, so why not join Luke & James as they go all the way back to the first two episodes of season 1? Last week they read the associated chapters, and this week they react to all the differences big and small from book to screen. They begin by exploring David Benioff & D. B. Weiss’s careers before Thrones, before tackling each episode on its own.

WARNING: This episode contains spoilers for the first 7 seasons of the Game of Thrones HBO television series & the five currently released novels of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series.

Topics include: Sexposition in action, the infamous unaired pilot, the consequences of male gaze, Ned vs. Jaime in a sword fight—who would win?, the possible reason for Ned not to tell Catelyn about R=L=J, Robert Baratheon’s cowardice, Dany’s fireproofing, and the HBO series’ effect on our larger culture.

Join the guys next week when they cover another large chunk of the HBO series & book by George RR Martin!
