Game of Thrones (season 4) – 8/10
Let’s get this party started.
The poor Starks. Everybody loves to hate them or hates to love them – whatever. Arya is pretty cool. Independent, don’t mess with her. Sansa on the other hand is so frustrating. Little dream girl is getting a rude awakening. Does she really like Lord Baelish? He’s so yucky. Mutual users. Bran Stark is growing up. Not yet sure what part he’ll play in the game.
Jon Snow – what does he know? He knows his wolf is awesome. Ready to take command; but a tortured soul nonetheless. His love was true.
Lannisters. My my. No sympathy for Joffrey. A total asshole. Cersei is such a bitch. What does Jaime see in her? Something is stirring in Jaime and it’s not for Cersei. Watch this space, there’s potential there. Tywin Lannister; ruthless, calculating. Constipation is a better end result. And Tyrion. Mesmerising every time he’s on the screen. A true thespian.
Mother of dragons. Try not to yawn when her story is on. Daenerys is striking. Yeah, yeah she’ll mother them all. Would like to see someone a bit more complicated.
A few lesser characters: Theon – why do I feel sorry for him; The Hound – father figure for Arya; Oberyn – stings like a viper, head pops like a melon; Brienne – lovelorn, lanky, laudable; Hodor – ever faithful Hodor.
