In honor of HBO’s hit television show and the Literary Lord George R. R. Martin’s bestselling series A Song of Ice and Fire, I’m setting my blog’s theme to GoT until the end of the show.
Now I’m not completely a bannerman for House Targaryen, even though Daenerys is one of top five favourite characters, but I thought it appropriate to champion the three-headed dragon because of my blog’s title.
In case you want to catch all my opinions of each week’s episode, you can visit my page here. The format will be just like when I followed the final season of The Legend of Korra. I will also be posting links to one of my favourite YouTube channelers, Comic Book Girl 19, and her episode recaps. I got attracted to her during season three and have become a big fan of her work and opinions. She also gives a lot of great comprehensive house history, which can help when trying to follow the rich world George has created for us.
I’m looking forward to this season. From the one spoiler I know, it’s gonna be awesome. I should go ahead and say that I don’t mind a few spoilers about this show; it’s my only exception when it comes to stories. My reasoning: I don’t mind knowing what’s going to happen (I knew about the Red and Purple Wedding and the thing with Tywin). What’s more captivating to me is how it happens. It’s actually a thing that’s popular in the East. The jewel of storytelling is not the outcome of the tale but the way in which it occurs. That’s why I’m not bothered knowing a few things in GoT before they happen. Watching the Red Wedding and knowing what was about to transpire was more tortuous than being surprised by the final result. So there’s that little bit about how I watch/read this incredible mix of fantasy and real life troubles.
With all that said, let’s get ready for another fantastic ten weeks that keeps us satisfied until the next three episodes of Sherlock come out.
