Oh, How I Love the Dire Wolf
I was maybe ten minutes into the second episode of "Game of Thrones" when I thought, it scares me how much I love this show already. I suppose that's a good sign. It was picked up after only one episode aired. So HBO agrees with me. Here are a few of the things I love about it....
*The relationship between Ned and his bastard son Jon Snow. How many soldiers bring their bastards home, raise them with their legitimate children and show them such love?
*The relationship Jon Snow and his younger siblings. It's such a pure brotherly love and children don't see legitimacy or not.
*The relationship between the King and Ned. The King has great respect for Ned and doesn't treat him as a lowly subject, but as an equal that just doesn't have a crown.
*Tyrion's insights into his family and the world for that matter. His dwarf-ness has given him a great perspective and he uses it.
*Despite the fact that Daenarys was pretty much sold to a barbarian by her brother, she's already learning how to take some power back. It may come little at a time, but I have hope that she'll figure out how
*The fantastical element that hasn't really show itself yet, but it's there.
Are you watching? Tell me what you like about HBO's new hit?
