Game of Thrones: My Favorite New Thing of 2013

Warning: Slight (unspecific) spoilers ahead. Click here for more on the SNL skit above.

Raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, direwolves in the tundra and The Wall and gratuitous nudity, and Ygritte is so annoying and sword play and WINTER IS COMING GAME OF THRONES IS THE BEST.

The land of Westeros was by far my absolute favorite discovery of 2013.

HBO’s hit series built off of the cult following generated by George RR Martin’s popular series A Song of Ice and Fire. Widely watched– and as it turns out even more widely pirated largely due to HBO’s strict third party policy.  The show was recently dubbed the most torrented show of 2013, beating out shows like Breaking Bad which saw the series finale come and go this past year. (RIP Breaking Bad.)

I could try to summarize what GoT is about but I don’t know how to do so in a way that’s spoiler-free and does justice to the amount of magic, mayhem and absolute and perpetual badassness of Arya Stark.

Even HBO’s website for the show contains immediate and critical spoilers, don’t click on the link it will ruin everything!

As the series rounds its way into its 4th season there’s still time to catch up.

I binge-watched the first two seasons of Game of Thrones, and the first episode of season 3, just in time to catch the 2nd episode of season 3 and join the masses in waiting week to week for each new episode.

The experience has been thoroughly satisfying.

Sara, you would certainly enjoy seeing GOTs on the big-screen, as will be presented at a little arthouse cinema that George R.R. Martin bought in Santa Fe,NM.
